Remove the CV boot first.
Depending on the year model of your car it will have a circlip(early models) on the shaft where the shaft enters the inner race of the CV joint. It will have to be opened with circlip pliers before the outer joint will come off. The circlip cannot be removed, you have to open the circlip with one hand using the circlip pliers, pull/hammer the joint with the other hand while somehow holding the shaft still as well. (A bench vise is a great help)
If it has no circlip a good whack with a rubber hammer will remove it. Refrain from hammering metal on metal. Use a piece of wood if no rubber hammer is available.
Look at this link for more info on disassembly/reassembly of the joint : http://www.fixya.com/cars/t5471871-need_some_help

Repair of the joint is not always succesful and replacement is the better option.

SOURCE: 97 toyota celica outer cv boot replacement passenger side

have you undone the main hub bolt, if yes, there could be two different items holding the cv joint on, one is a small circlip in the joint end, or the other is just like an expanding metal ring again only small. what i had to do to change my one was take the driveshaft out (easier to see whats there) then gently (rubber hammer) hit the CV joint it should then fall off to allow you to change the CV joint. I spent over an hour trying to get the metal ring off, then after taking driveshaft off it was changed and back on in ten mins. Or you can go to a motor factors or similar and get a boot puller, my opinion hammer works better lol

This is a simple job that is why it is not very detailed in your book. Nothing special. Do one side at a time so you have a reference to how to reassemble it. Remove your tire , brake calipers be sure not to stress the rubber brake lines or open the brake lines to air. Remove both upper and lower ball joints. When taking out the ball joints remove the cotter pin and bolt and beat the **** out of the joint for it to release. Then the C/V axles will come right out with a bit out encouragement. You will need a few tools wrenches pry bar hammer. I would buy a Chilton's or a Haynes repair manual for torque specs for reassembly. Good luck and take your time. And unless the axles are making noise you can just replace the rubber boots. Which is alot cheaper.

  2. Loosen but do not remove the hex collar bolt.
  3. Loosen but do not remove the wheel lug bolts.
  4. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  5. Loosen all, and remove all but one of the CV joint to stub axle bolts retaining the halfshaft to the transaxle flange. If necessary have an assistant hold the tire, or remove the tire, install two of the lug bolts and have an assistant hold a suitable and sturdy 3 foot (1 meter) prytool between the lug bolts to prevent the axle from spinning.
  6. If not previously removed, remove the front wheels.
  7. Remove the remaining CV joint to stub axle bolt and remove the halfshaft from the transaxle drive flange and support it out of the way. Do NOT let it hang unsupported.
  8. Remove the outer axle hex collar bolt and press the halfshaft out of the hub. A suitable press tool may be necessary, otherwise drive the axle out using a suitable drift.
  9. Remove the ABS wheel speed sensor cable from the brake caliper bracket.
  10. Slide the ABS speed sensor partly out of its mount.
  11. Remove upper control arm pinch bolt and nut, then remove both arms up and out of the steering knuckle.


WARNING The slots in the steering knuckle must not be widened. Do NOT loosen any other steering knuckle fasteners, otherwise the axle geometry must be checked.
  1. Tilt the steering knuckle out and to the rear of the vehicle, then remove the halfshaft. If necessary, use a press tool to remove the axle from the hub.

Toyota 1993 Camry Grease Points


There are no routine grease points on this car. You should look every year or 2 for split rubber boots and escaping grease on the CV joints, tie rod ends, and lower outer ball joints, but that's about all for grease.

Your outer CV joint is blown. You need to replace this soon - if the joint fails, the car will not move.

Sounds like you may have a bad CV joint. The CV joint allows power to transfer to the wheels while still allowing articulation of axle while in rotation. You say the sound and/or vibration follows the tire rotation speed, this is a good clue to allow the elimination of components it couldn't be.

Things it could be;
Generally, the output shaft of the transaxle, inner CV joint, axle shaft, outer CV joint, stub axle (this is usually part of the outer CV joint and is splined), the hub and bearing, brake rotor, wheel, and tire.

A visual inspection of the axle and CV joints, and to check them for play may show the problem location. You say the sound stops while execlerating, this means that the power from the engine is removing the ability for the loose part to "rattle" around. Most of the time this is a CV joint.

If you want to inspect the CV joints yourself, as a general rule there should be no rotational play in the axle shaft by hand. By this I mean if you grab the axle shaft and try to spin it one way and then the other you should feel no noticable play. The CV boots (the rubber covering around the joint to keep dirt and moisture out and grease in) should be clean and dry. Check them for splits, cracks, or just generally grease seepage.

The outer joint (the one just behind the wheel itself) is more likely to have this kind of problem due to the fact that it articulates much more than the inner one, in order to allow you to turn the wheel during steering and still apply engine power to the wheel at the same time.
