Question about Saturn SL2

1 Answer

I Have a 1997 saturn sl2 that im almost sure the cv joint is going out on it. Exactly how do we know which one is going out? and is there any way that you would be able to give me instructions about how to replace it? also, just in case this might not be the cv joint I will explain the situation. I started noticing a feeling as though.the tire is popping back into place only when i put it into reverse and turn the wheel so that I back out to the right, and while on the highway it pulls to the right severly, not like the usual alignment being off either. ive also been noticing a bit of a wobble to it when driving and while it is idling. if you could assist me it would be greatly appreciated. sincerely, Sarena Short

Sound more like a bad wheel bearing, a bad c.v shaft will not cause any wheel wobble or pulling, have the wheel bearing checked out, most shop will do this at no charge, if the wheel bearing is bad, best to fine a shop with a good rate, do to the bearing is press in and will have to be press out, and the new one press in, hope this was very helpful.

Sl2 ****** left turn vibration???


My first guess would be the axle shaft has popped out of one side of the transaxle. They can be tough to get in far enough for the lock ring to hold.

Hi :) I have a 1997 SW1 wagon same front end have replaced parts over the years since new and I'am still driving it that noise is coming from the CV axle to replace it you jack up the car and set on jack stands safely remove the bolt holding lower ball joint in place and seperate the two parts, Undo the large nut on the outside of the wheel hub and push the stud out of the bearing the take a large srewdriver or pry bar and pry the other end of the axle out of the center shaft support housing that goes to the transmission and reverse process to repace making sure the inner CV shaft is all the way seated into the center shaft support.

Need to tap starter on saturn sl2 dont know what it looks like, (im a girl)


go to autozone or advance website and look up starter for saturn. then you know what it looks like. find the thing under your hood which looks like it and tap it. it will be on the back of the engine, you will be able to see it best by hanging over the fender, with the hood open, on the driver side. forget about replacing it unless you have a lift and a good set of tools.

My driver side cv joint inner boot keeps breaking


Are you replacing the cv axle yourself. If you are going with an aftermarket axle, that may be your problem. I would recommend going back to O.E. Also, some original saturn parts may be hard to find.

Clik,clik on the rigth side when making turn need to know what to avoid, and possible short cut to replace c/v joints [axle] on both side of 1995 saturn sl2 [automatic].thank you much.


There really is no short cut....you need to replace the half-axle on the right side (will get both inner and outer CV joints). Is driveable with noise, but may eventually fall apart.
