Is it safe to say that my CV axel is bad?


No, sounds like the transfer case is shot. Your is an all time all wheel drive. It has a clutch pack in the T case. They go bad. They will cause the tire to skip and jump, not the CV axle. Pricey fix and no fun to remove. You can remove the front drive shaft to get rid of the skipping until you can replace it.

How do i fix cv axels on a 2002 hyundai accent


It's not worth it to fix the axel, it is wise to replace the axels
by jacking up the car secure the car with jack stands, then remove the wheels, the big center nut of the axel and the lower bolts on the ball joint, then pry the lower control arm down and pull the hubb aside. Now u could remove the axel easily, if stuck take a hammer and tap it lightly, remove it, replace with the new but make sure both ends r lubed with grease.

2005 chev malibu cv joints/ mechanic says cant be fixed


In this days we do not replace Cv joints anymore.. There are rebuilt axels available .. we replace the complete axel with the rebuilt one.. Really cheap at Rockauto.com.. $40-$50 each axel..

2001 mitsubishi eclipse gt spyder clutch removal. how do you get the axles out and how do you release the bearing for the tranmission to seperate


After the axel is removed from the outher wheel bearingf( seaparate the steering knuckle from the lower ball joint) and pull the axel out of the bearing after the axel nut has been removed then the axel will pry ou tof the transmission.. Might take a strong pry witht he haelp of a hammer. the one side might have a carrier bearing on the CV axel that bolted to the back of the engine block. It'll have to be unbolted. too. the starter will have to be removed also as all the bolts that hold the engine to the transmission.

I'am trying to take the transaxle out of the transmission to fix an oil leak


Remove the wheel cover and loosen the drive axel hub nut. loosen the the wheel lug nuts raise the vehicle and support it well. NOTE: you will have to be working under the car be very careful. remove the drive axel hub nut. To prevent the hub from turning, insert a screwdriver thru the brake caliper and into one of the cooling slots on the rotor. remove the control arm-to-steering knuckle. Check for the ABS sensor and remove it out of your way. Separate the drive axel from the hub. If stuck remove the brake caliper and rotor. Push the axel out of the hub with a puller or you can use a good solid broom handle and drive it out. If you are removing the right side axel you will need a slide hammer and adaptor to separate the axel from the trans. If you are removing the left side, carefully pry the axel out of the trans. with a large pry-bar positioned between the inner CV joint and the trans. case. Use the subframe as a pivot point. Hold the CV joints so they do not separate inside the rubber if going to reuse them. Lubricate the new seal with multi-purpose grease before you install it.

Im replacing the driver side cv axel and im having problems what would be the best way to do it i have a 1987 ford tempo


remove the wheel, brake assembly and center axel nut. remove the nut for the lower ball joint and separate the lower control arm , this might require a little effort, tapthe end of the axle with a soft faced hammer to loosen it and pull it through the hub then use a prybar and remove the inner shaft from the trans, be ready for a little oil spillage, intallation is the reverse

What's involved in changing a cv joint in a 2000 Rav 4? I have very good mechanical abilities & have changed cv joints before (about 10 years ago)


Easy enough job really, jack car up, put axel stand under. remove wheel - remove hub nut, remove pinch bolt - prise open the pinch bolt part (sorry cant rem name) pop out the hub from the lower arm. Remove CV join from drive shaft. Usually a tap will pop it out.. sometimes theres a circlip that need removing (models vary). Grease up new CV joint - put grease in new boot, pop boot over drive shaft. put cv join on (replace circlip if provided in kit). join cv to hub - attach CV boot fully. fasten hub nut, replace wheel.

done. might need tracking again or aligning once you do this.

How to replace 1996 dodge neon cv joints


Remove the wheel and the lower ball joint from the spindle. It will also make it easier if you remove the tie rod end. There is a large hut at the tire end of the axel. Remove that nut and washer. Take a rubber or brass Hammer and hit the end of the axel to push it through the bearing assembly. If it is really stuck, put the nut back on so that the nut is even with the end of the axel and uses a heavier hamer to break it loose. Once you break it loose, pull back on the rotor while pushing the axel to remove it from the hole it passes through. (Becarefull with the brake hose. If it is pulling too tight it might be best to remove the caliper and use a hanger to suspend it until you are done.) You will need a really BIG screw driver or a pry bar. Put the pry bar between the case and the hub of the axel and push in quickly and firmly to pop it out of the trans axel. It might take a few tries. If it resists look for a ridge and put a big screw drive on the ridge and use a hammer to pop it out.

Once it is out, reverse directions. Do not use the hammer on the new axel any where.put the end into the trans axel as far as it will go and then put the other end through the wheel bearing. Use the leverage you have with the rotor and bearing side to push the axel into the trans. You should hear it snap into place. Before you put the ball joint back on go to the trans axel side and use that pry bar and gently try to remove. if it resists it is seated, if it slides out, you need to seat it again. ONce you are sure it is firmly seated back into the trans, you can bump the ball joint and tie rod back together.

Good luck and be careful

Cant get my axel off


If you are referring to the axle nut on the end of the axle shaft, you may need an impact wrench, or make sure to bend the nut back (straighten out the bent section), put the car on the ground with the wheel on, and use a breaker bar, with a 3 foot piece of pipe attached (cheater bar) to loosen it. REMEMBER - some of these are reverse thread, if so you will have to go clockwise to loosen and CCW to tighten, thus, you MAY be tightening it - check the thread on the end of the shaft to tell you what way to turn the nut - if it still won't come off then you may have to use some heat, and/or chemical penetrants, but make sure you are turning it the correct way first...
