Question about 1991 Toyota Celica

1 Answer

I recently had someone replace my drivers side cv joint. When the car was returned to me the brakes no longer worked and then when I drove car the following day I heard a loud pop and the car will no longer go into gear or reverse. The fellow that did the repairs claims it is the throwout bearing as well as a cracked brake caliper. Does this sound correct and can it be repaired easily and what is the best way to repair.

Not to bust on, ...but a road test should have been done to assure the job was complete. I personally wouldn't accept his claims. Why would he return the car to you with no clutch, and a cracked caliper? I understand that things break, but this sounds funny.
A caliper cracked? Never seen one, but, to change it isn't super difficult, but you will have to buy a new, or rebuilt unit.
The throw out bearing is another issue. The transmission will have to be removed to replaced the throw out bearing.

Front driver side cv joint?


could be top/bottom ball joint easy to check ,jack up so wheel off ground hold wheel at 12 o'clock and 6o'clock (the position not the time) and wobble back and forwards then do the same but holding at 3 an 9 if notice movement further investigation needed,while you wobble wheel get someone too look at top/ bottom ball joints ,track rod end if they dont appear to be moving then more than likely bearing this is best done with vehicle on a lift but should be able to carry out on the ground the cv joint could also be responsible but would need a garage to determine as a bit more complex

Car is shaking when driving and makes clicking noise


CV joints will only click when the wheel is turned. Normally this is due to a torn boot and the grease gets EVERYWHERE in the front suspension.
The clicking could also be that you need to bend back your dust shield that goes behind your brake rotor. You could have hit it when doing the strut and it is making contact with the brake rotor.
As far as the shaking, this could be a number of different things. I would make sure the rest of your front end it tight. Check the ball joints, wheel bearings, tie rod ends, strut mounts, and wheels.

If you are replacing the CV joint itself, you have spent too much money for one, and are in for more work than needed. I own a 1993 Subaru Loyale Wagon, front wheel drive (converting to four). I had to replace both sides when I got it, and it is so much easier to replace the drive axles rather than the CV joint. I suggest returning the part, and purchasing the entire drive axle. The drive axle will require the same steps : Remove brake system, knock out pin in drive axle near tranny, and pull the drive axle out. Insert new drive axle, replace pin (if new one is not provide, this is okay.) and re-assemble brake system.
If this is not feasable for you to do, and replacing the CV joint is your only option, then go to the the auto parts store and ask for a CHILTONS manual for your car.
Please let me know if you need further assistance.

The caliper is easy, but I have never heard of one breaking, cracking, what ever, unless you were in an accident. And the throwout bearing is not an easy fix. You have to pull the tranny out, might as well replace the whole setup, clutch, pressure plate and bearing, and get the flywheel turned while you are at it. It isn't a bad job, but it is a job. A lot of people won't tackle it, but I have seen some people just go do it who I never thought would even attempt it. Check it out, Hope this helps.

One of your CV joints are bad, inspect which CV joint needs to be replaced. Roll your windows down and make tight right and left corners in an empty parking lot slowly and listen for the clicking noise. If it's coming from the passenger side window or the drivers side window, which ever side the noise is coming from is the side that the CV joint has failed and will need to be replaced.
Thank you for using FIxya and replacing the front wheel bearing improperly buy hammering the CV joint out instead of using a wheel bearing puller will cause damage to the CV joint as to what you have described. Good luck and keep us posted.

How do u get the drive axle thats broke into two ?


I'm not sure of your question but I think you want to know how do you replace to drive axle also known as the CV joint. To replace the CV joint jack up the side that broke and remove the wheel. Then remove the center nut that holds the CV joint to the hub. Put the car in gear or park so the hub will not turn why you do this or have someone put on the brake why you're doing this. Then remove the lower ball joint. Now pull the hub outward as you push the CV joint in. You may have to do some prying. Now using a pry bar snapped the other side of the CV joint out of the transmission. Reverse this to install new one. Good luck.
