SOURCE: average repair cost for cv joint or axle replacement

Average time should be around 2-3 hours. Every shop charges different hourly rates. Dealerships will be around at least 80 an hour, smaller shops will run lower.

SOURCE: I have taken everything apart on the right side

Sometimes these axles are tough to remove, sometimes you may have to tap the outside of the axle with either a brass hammer or rubber mallet (as not to damage the outer part of the axle) adthen try and pull out the axle shaft. You may also have to try pry bar behind the axle shaft (where it goes into the transmission) and slightly pry out away from the transmission to release the ring lip that holds it in place inside the transmission. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: how do take out the cv joint on the front axle of

assuming you have the 2wd version....

1997-99 Models

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Unlock the steering column so the linkage is free to move, then raise and support the front of the vehicle safely using jackstands.
  3. Remove the tire and wheel assembly.
  4. Insert a drift through the brake caliper into one of the brake rotor vanes to prevent the drive axle from turning.
  5. Remove the axle nut and washer from the hub end of the shaft. Hold the hub from turning and loosen the axle nut. Once the nut is loosened unthread it and remove the washer.
  6. Remove the brake caliper and support it with a piece of wire to avoid damaging the brake hose. Remove the brake rotor.
  7. Remove the ABS and brake line brackets from the top of the upper control arm.

Be careful when supporting the lower control arm that any components are damaged with the supporting device.
  1. Place a jackstand or jack under the lower control arm.
  2. Separate the axle shaft from the hub by placing a block of wood against the outer edge of the axle (to protect the threads), then strike the block of wood sharply with a hammer. Do not remove the axle at this time.
  3. Remove the cotter pin and retainer, then loosen and remove the upper ball joint stud nut away from the knuckle. Tip the knuckle out and toward the rear of the vehicle. Suspend the knuckle from the upper control arm or frame in order to prevent straining and damaging the brake line.
  4. Remove the lower shock absorber retainers, then compress the shock and secure it out of the way using safety wire.

Once the lower ball joint is separated from the knuckle, simultaneously push the axle shaft in towards the differential to allow room for the knuckle and assembly to be removed.
  1. Remove the cotter pin and retainer, then loosen and remove the lower ball joint stud nut away from the knuckle.
  2. Lower the safety stand or jack at the lower control arm to relieve pressure on the torsion bar, then separate the axle from the knuckle.
  3. Remove the differential carrier shield, being very careful not to damage the axle seal.
  4. To remove the shaft from the differential carrier, place a block of wood or a brass drift against the tripot housing, then strike it outwards using a hammer. You will have to hit it hard enough to overcome the snapring pressure retaining it.
  5. Support the drive axle, then pull the axle straight out from the carrier being careful not to tear the boot.

Makes a hard clicking sound in the passenger side tire area when i turn either way. ony when im sitting still and start to turn tho.


this sounds like a bad cv axle, this is what turns the wheels to make the car move if its clicking its going to break soon and leave you stuck out on the road, the axle needs replacing.

2001 Kia Sephia, steering box unit, grinding when wheel is turned


That sounds like a cv joint. It is right behind the tire on the end of the axle. It should have a rubber boot around it. I suspect the boot went bad causing you to lose the grease.

94 Geo Prizm CV or driveaxle?


on this type of vehichle, you have two axles in the front; one going to each side. Chances are that the boot at the axle joint was torn and that is why you are having problem. In teh past people used to replace the boot, this day and age its actually cheaper to replace the axle. So you would need to replace that side of the axle (the half shaft).

Cv joints


Have them replace the entire axle with a rebuilt for aound $70-100 cost.  After they buy the CV and the boot kit, you will be close to that amount ... and they will still have to get the joint off the boot on, the cv on and attach the boot to the joint and shaft ... sometimes these boot kits don't fit right .. and they haven't done many and may not realize it doesn't fit right!
