Cv joint replacement


Replace the half shaft its a pain but worth it

I believe i have an axle problem every time i put it in gear and lose all power theres hard banging noise ect.


Your cougar is a front wheel drive and the axles are called cv joints. Under your car going to each front wheel is a metal rod with a rubber boot at each end. Under each boot is the joint that allows the wheel to move up and down side to side while putting power to the tire. If your boots get torn, water and dirt destroy these cv joints. You can jack up the front of the car and with the motor off and trans in neutral, turn the front tires to see where the damage is at. Replacing the joints on fords takes special tools.

How do i change a c/v joint 95 dodge spirit


its better to change the whole axle it has both cv joints and both boots and its faster to do . the cv joint cant be changed with the axle in the car you have to remove the axle so you just install the replacement axle and your done just pick up a chilton manual at any auto part store for your car it gives you step by step instructions . price the cv joint and the whole axle and see the difference hope this helps

2003 mercury sable. rattle noise on rough road. Sounds like front wheel loose.Jacked up can shake left wheel looks like loose at cv joint. Is this needing replaced? Can I do it ?


loose wheel not caused by cv joints. More likely ball joint or tie rod end. Usually need a lift to do this kind of work. If cv boot is torn open, replace axle as well. If you haven't done this kind of work before, recommend you get some help from someone that has done it.

My car steers tires sakes when i accelerate


Have your drive axles constant velocity joints checked out. Look at the boots covering the cv joints. If they are split your joint is gone. If there is any play in the cv joint they need to be replaced.

1997 Pathfinder How do you replace the left outer cv boot?


How to Replace a CV Boot
( DIY Complexity: Hard / Time: 3.2 hours )

Parts:
1. CV Boot
2. CV Boot Clamp Kit

Tools:
1. Mallet Hammer
2. 3/8 in. Drive Ratchet
3. Combination Wrench Set
4. Floor Jack
5. Flashlight
6. Flat Head Screwdriver
7. Socket Set
8. Tire Iron

Steps:
Step 1 Secure the vehicle on a level surface, making sure the vehicle will not roll or lean too much when jacked up.
o Tip: Safety Tip:Always wear safety glasses when working on your vehicle. Wear other personal protective equipment (PPE) when necessary, for example latex gloves or safety shoes.

Step 2 Lift up the front of the vehicle using a jack.
o Tip: Using an aftermarket floor jack, instead of the original equipment (OE) jack, can make the job easier and safer. Verify the condition of the floor jack before use.

Step 3 Secure the vehicle with jack stands on both sides for safety before starting any work. The pinch welds and the frame are the two best locations. Do not rely on the jack to hold the vehicle up while working.
o Tip: Try to find a flat, level, and strong surface to put the jack stands.

Step 4 Find the correct size socket and large ratchet or tire iron and turn the wheel lug nuts counter clockwise. Remove the front wheels.
o Tip: It is a good idea to try and break the lug nuts free before you jack the wheels off the ground. This way they you will not spin the front wheels or put stress on the transaxle.
o Tip: Lug nuts fasten the wheel to the hub and may be on very tight. To gain more leverage, use a breaker bar to loosen the nuts.

Step 5 Inspect the CV boot for damage.
o Tip: The CV joint may be worn if the boot is damaged. Thoroughly inspect the CV joint assembly before installing the new boot. If the CV joint is damaged, replace the entire CV joint axle assembly.

Step 6 Mark the axle for installation reference. Remove the CV joint axle assembly.

Step 7 Using a bench vise, hold the shaft of the CV joint secure so that you can separate the CV joint from the shaft. Remove the CV boot clamps.

Step 8 Slide the CV boot off the outer CV joint.

Step 9 Using a rubber mallet, knock the CV joint off of the axle shaft.

Step 10 Remove the old boot from the CV axle shaft and wipe off any old grease. Clean the sealing surface on the CV joint.

Step 11 Fill the CV joint with grease and get it ready to slide back onto the shaft.

Step 12 Slide the new boot onto the shaft but do not tighten the inner clamp yet. Install a new retaining clip before putting the joint and axle together.

Step 13 Slide the CV joint back onto the axle shaft completely.

Step 14 Pack the boot with grease and slide the boot over the CV joint housing. Secure the boot with new clamps.

Step 15 Install the CV joint and axle back into the vehicle in the reverse order that it was removed.

Step 16 Mount the wheel back onto the hub assembly.

Step 17 Tighten lug nuts in a star pattern and torque to suggested manufacturer specifications in the vehicle owner’s manual.

Step 18 Remove jack stands.

Step 19 Lower vehicle with jack until it is securely on the ground.

Step 20 Drive the vehicle to make sure that any noises are no longer present and that there are no indications of wearing parts. Before road testing, visually inspect the area you have worked on to make sure everything is tightened and assembled properly.

Hope help with this (remember rated and comment this help).

I need to replace the axle on my toyota camry


The CV joint boots? Hah.. if you've never done it before get a mechanic to do it. You'll just run into more and more problems if you mess up. There's more to it then just replacing the boot. You'll also need to check the cv joints for damage and repack them with high pressure grease.
