Granted, I'm not familiar with your car but some vehicle I owned in the past had right AND left-hand threads, depending on the side of the car.
You might check to see if that is the case.

How to remove inner cv joint on a 1988 opel kadette


a round c clip holds the joint in the box. Use a pry bar or short crow bar with flat end wedge it between the joint and gearbox casing to pry it out. Or if the cv joint casing has a ridge on it rest the pry bar securely against it and hammer the pry bar to pop it out.

How many spints for the inner outer cv joints for mazda 626 sedan 1999 model 2.0 litres


CV joints should be packed with moly grease.
Less than 1/2 pint for both in total I would think. 500ml tub should be ok.
Normal grease can be used if you run out.

Replace c-v joint


  • Raise and support the vehicle on jack stands. Using the ½-inch air gun, remove the wheels. Use the wire cutters to remove the cotter pin in the lower ball joint.

  • Unscrew and remove the two bolts holding the caliper to the mounting bracket. The bolts run through the caliper from the engine side. Remove the caliper, but do not let it hang by its hose.

  • Use a wrench to take the nut off of the lower ball joint. Insert the ball joint removal tool in between the spindle and the lower control arm. Hit the tool with the hammer until the ball joint comes loose.

  • Use the ½-inch air gun and the proper socket to remove the large nut on the end of the CV axle. This is the one in the center of the rotor. Push the axle in toward the engine slightly, just to make sure it is loose. If it is not loose, tap it with a hammer.

  • Use the ½ inch air gun and an 18mm socket to remove the two large bolts in the base of the strut where it is attached to the spindle. Pull the spindle from the strut to separate the two.

  • Grab the rotor and lift the lower ball joint out of the spindle. Pull the CV joint out of the spindle and then place the lower ball joint on the spindle back into the lower control arm to hold it there.

  • Insert the pry bar between the inner CV joint and the transmission. Use a fast yank on the pry bar to pry the CV joint from the transmission.

  • Insert the new CV joint into the transmission as far as it will go by hand. The CV joint has a snap ring on the end that is going in the transmission. It gives a little resistance to going in. Use both hands and pull the outer end out about 1 inch and then slam it in toward the engine. This quick movement will get the CV joint to seat in the transmission. Check to make sure that the CV joint is all the way in before proceeding--look at the distance between the CV joint and the transmission.

  • Insert the outer end of the CV shaft into the spindle and rotate the rotor slightly to get the splines to line up. Push it in until the tip of the axle begins to come out the outside of the spindle enough to get the large nut on. Put the large nut on a couple of turns. Put the nut back on the lower ball joint but do not tighten it yet.

    Push the spindle back into the lower mounting point on the strut and insert the two large bolts and nuts. Use the ½-inch air gun to tighten securely. Use a wrench to tighten the nut on the lower ball joint. Insert the cotter pin below the nut for safety.

    Tighten down the large axle nut securely with the ½-inch air gun. Put the brake caliper back on and insert the two bolts through the caliper and tighten. Replace the wheels and the lug n

    How do I remove the front axles?


    a pry bar works the best. First take the bolt out that holds the lower ball joint and the strut together then take the cv bolt out, (impact gun works best) then put the pry bar where the cv joint goes into the transmission,just keep on working with it till it pops out. Be careful sometimes it leaks transmission fluid out. to install push the cv joint in as much as you can then put the nut on and with a hammer or mall it the nut till it pops in and secures then take the nut off and slide it back through the hub and then connect the hub and lower ball joint together. then tighten bolt to specs and repeat for other side.

    I had my cv joints changed out and now my knocking sound is worse


    Is the knocking only on turns from the front and it is a fast continual knocking?
    If the installation was correct.......sounds like the CV joints are possibly defective.
    When changing CV joints.......always put in complete shaft assemblies that use NEW joints....not rebuilt joints.The price is almost the same.

    Clicking sound when turning hard or in reverse turning....


    Usually that is the sign of a cv joint going. I have an accord with front wheel drive and it did the same thing. THe cv boot being torn could have caused the initial breakdown of the bearing faces...
