    You need to jack the side up that you need to replace the C.V. joint on, and place the car on jack stands.
    Then you need to remove the wheel,brake caliper,center axle-nut,bottom arm, and steering arm.
    Once you have done this then you can pull the whole suspension shock assembly and hub away from the axle and C.V. joint.

    Then pull the whole axle out of the gearbox, this will make the job alot easier to work on. Watch out for oil that may leak out from the gearbox when the axle is pulled out.

    Put the axle in a vice and remove the C.V. boot off the C.V you are replacing, then push from the top of the C.V and quickly pull it and it should come off, if not then persuade it with a hammer.....once you have this off then check that the circlip which is underneath is removed and you replace it with the one you should get with the New C.V..

    Grease the new C.V. with all the grease which has come with it. Put new circlip in groove on axle and then refit new C.V.

    NOTE: Make sure you line up the axle shaft grooves with the C.V. grooves before putting any pressure to fit it. Damaging the axle grooves will make the job impossible to complete.

    Assembly is reversal of removal.

    Let me know if you need more information.

Engine vibrating

Are the transmission mounts good also? You can check them with a pry bar and stretch them to see if theyre broken or the rubber in the center is torn, or have an assistant start the vehicle and and put in gear and hold the brake and give it some throttle and observe the mounts under the hood to see if the engine has alot of movement in forward and reverse engagement. Also,check to see if idle is at factory setting.If (TPS)(throttle position sensor) is to low then it WILL also cause a vibration.

I have a 1998 daihatsu terios manual it vibrates badly in 4th and 5th gear what can it be

Check the half shafts for worn CV joints is the 1st thing. Also so you think it may be a misfire, they usually happen in higher gears when engine load is highest.
