Hi, the GEARBOX oil will need to be draind first. UNDO the MAIN WHEEL NUT IN THE HUB (need to aply brakes somtimes) with aprox 30 mm socket (need breaker bar to undo large nut). place wood or bricks both sides of the rear wheel (stops car moving). JACK UP the car and place AXLE stands or wood or wheel under the car (SAFTEY FIRST ) . take the LOWER BALL JOINT (most have a pinch bolt), this must be removed completly, (this has grove in BALL JOINT), undoing the ball joint somtimes can be really tight ( undo the nut DO'NT take the nut OFF you may need to hit with soft COPPER hammer). if the ball joint centre turns, NEEDS REPLACING. turn steering wheel all the right. and jugle the DRIVE SHAFT out of the HUB. the other END of the DRIVE SHAFT pulls OUT may need a bar to free this. revsal of this replaces the drive shaft. gerry

SOURCE: noise in front end, sounds

You say the rear wheel axles and bearings have been replaced, you mention nothing of the front wheels, you have the symptoms of a front wheel bearing being worn out, remove them and check for pitting in the bearing rollers or the bearing races, I am sure you will find a problem. Hope this helps solve your issue with the bearing noise.

SOURCE: front axle passenger side

about a 1 hour job

1 you need to remove the wheel 4 or 5 nuts.
2 you need to remove the caliper 2 bolts at the back of the disk.
3 there will be a cup in the middle of the disk you can remove the cup with a hammer and a medium flat blade screw driver behind the cup us a large nut it may have a **** pin going through it you will need a pair of side cutter plyers to remove the split pin the nut will be 24mm.
4 there will be 2 bolts with a nut each on the back of them undo the bolts and the disk will come toward you and hang on an angle.
5 your driveshaft will be sort of locked in to the transmission give the driveshaft a bit of a shake side to side and pull toward you at a steady rate you dont want to damage your seals.
6 it is all straight forward when putting i back together just make sure to do the caliper and the 24mm nut up as tight as you can and dont forget the split pin.

if i was you i was you i would do the driver side axel as well they always seem to follow not long after you replace the other

hope i explained it well let me no if you get stuck

no you dont need any special tools

SOURCE: 1994 c1500 4x4 front differential left side axle seal replacement

Diff does not need to be removed to change axle. If you are good at this stuff, you can figure your way through it, or get a manual as a guide (haynes etc. are OK for this stuff) Axle is held into carrier by a "c" clip so you do need to remove the cover and spider gears to get it out (not difficult) If you run into a problem, someone here will surely help!

Is there a bearing or bushing on the shaft that the left axle slides onto on a 1999 Bonneville se?


i have been fooled by this one way to many times. when a wheel bearing or hub assesembly is making noise, it will sound like it is comming from the other side. i do not know why this is. but one test will prove if and which one. when growling noise occurs, notice, when turning left or right, does noise get louder and quieter as you turn? if so then it is wheel bearing. when turning left the right side will make more noise. when turning right the left side will make more noise. if always the same then, tires or transmission need addressing. the cv axle does not make a growling noise, unless front wheel drive car does not move, it makes a clicking or poping noise. sorry but at least you dont have to replace other axle

Mazda axle shaft


not anymore than any other front wheel drive car. are you having a noise(clicking or clunking) coming from the front only when turning. if so then you have a bad cv joint on the axle. its cheaper to replace the entire halfshaft(axle) than just the bad joint, as you get a rebuilt halfshaft complete. if you hear the noise when turning left then the left halfshaft is bad if you hear it only when you turn right then the right side is bad. you don`t say what issue you are having.

The front left wheel makes a terrible grinding popping sound when I turn the wheel to the left. It also seems to be driving a little "weird", kind of "mushy" and loose. There is a boot...


That a CV joint you're describing. That boot protects bearing from dirt getting in and grease from getting out. You don't have to hit anything, they split with age, deteriorate and sometimes actually twist on shaft and gives the appearance like you smacked something. Replace or have someone replace CV joint and boot on that wheel and you should be good to go.

Clicking noise down by the front tires.


check your axles, for an open cv boot, this clicking is on straigth or turning, if turming to your rigth you hear noise to be louder on your left then your left axle is bad, do the same to your left and if noise exists then your rigth axle is bad.good luck

Mechanic says i need new front axles......


Usually once the boot is torn, dirt goes in, and all of the lubricant goes out. If you have been driving it this way, it will damage things faster. Normally you hear a "click" when turning out of a bad cv joint.It is a safer solution to just replace both, but of coarse, not cheaper.
