You people are nuts. i have worked on every thing from 86's to 98's with 88's being my speicalty and so long as you have the tools its not a problem. for a manual transmission you jack the car up, remove the tire, take the axle nut off (with an impact hammer if you have one), DRAIN THE OIL FROM THE TANSMISION (there should be a 3/8 plug that is esily removed on the passenger side of the vehicle), then you remove the nut from the bottom of the whole mess (its a castle nut), then you remove the catle nut from the top and u have to break the ball joints lose with a ball joint removal tool (which u can borrow from most places with loaner tools), then u push the entire trans axle out of the hub assembly and swing the assembly out of the way, now get under the car with a big pry bar and put it against the trans axle and the transmission and just pry it out as hard as you can, you can also go around to the wheel well and grab the trans axle and **** on it (there is a ring that holds it in you just have to over come this it wont be easy.) well that is pretty much all u have to do to remove the trans axle. i would just sugest replacing the entire trans axle and not just the outer cv joint becuase it will be easier in the long run to just replace the entire trans axle. well i hope this helps

Not easy, but worth it to many people. I did it, without 1/2" air impact wrench. I got a 24" breaker bar and socket to fit, and borrowed a ball joint removal tool from the auto parts retailer. Took me 30-45 minutes.

Definitely not easy.You need a way to jack the front end and support it safely.Have to use a pretty powerful 1/2" drive air gun as a couple hundred foot pounds is required to remove the axle nuts,as well as a large socket to fit the axle nut.You also have to break the ball joints loose,and have a large pry bar to remove the axles from the trans while being careful of the axle seals.

SOURCE: CV joint replacement

Generally no tool is required. If you use a "pickle fork" you will risk damaging the dust boot.

Have you tried whacking the spindle right near where the ball joint stud comes through? This will take a few good shots to break it loose.

Be careful not to hit the threads!

How to change cv joints


I would replace the complete axle assembly,
it would be cheaper and come with a warranty.

Instructions
  1. Remove the CV Joint
    • Remove the boot straps from the CV joint using a standard screwdriver or a pair of diagonal cutting pliers.
    • Slide the boot back over the interconnecting shaft.
    • Get Chevrolet Info at InsideLine Free News, Videos, Photos & More!
      Detach the stop ring at the base of the CV joint assembly using a pair of snap ring pliers.

    • Pull the CV joint assembly from the interconnecting shaft to force the snap ring at the top of the shaft through the CV joint assembly.
    • Tilt the inner cage (the cage holding the balls in place inside the housing) in different angles to remove the six balls. Use your thumb or a hammer and a wooden dowel, if necessary.
    • Tilt the inner cage enough to remove it from its housing.
    • Rotate the race inside the cage--the part that holds the balls against the inner cage--and remove the race from the cage.
      Replace the CV Joint
      • Apply a thick coat of grease to the new CV joint race using special high temperature/high pressure grease (see Tips below).
      • Install the race inside the new cage. Then install the cage/race assembly inside the CV joint housing.
      • Tilt the cage at different angles and fit the new balls in place.
      • Slide a new CV joint rubber boot over the interconnecting shaft.
      • Install a new snap and stop ring on the interconnecting shaft.
      • Push the interconnecting shaft through the CV joint assembly to force the snap ring through the assembly.
      • Apply a thick coat of CV joint grease to all moving parts of the assembly.
      • Apply a coat of CV joint grease to the inside of the rubber boot. Then slide the boot over the CV joint assembly.
      • Install the boot straps at each end of the boot, and tighten the straps using a clamp tool or screwdriver, depending on the type of clamp.

Can a damaged CV joint damage the transmission?


It is possible in many ways. If the CV joint is not replace soon you can cause the joint to break inwhich the axle shaft can shift hard into the transmission housing causing extensive damage for instance. Further more suspension damage can result also

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.

2005 mini cooper knock felt through steering when turned to right noise does not continue on hard lock


Problem with a CV joint that is worn as it seem that the noise is heard only on partial turn. Try to find from which side the noise come from and replace the CV joint. Not serious if noise level is low and can be used if you do not mind the noise. Check however if the booth (cover) of the joints are intact and are filled with lubricant. Replace as soon as you can

CV Joint Axle Replacement - How to Repair or Replace

Over time the rubber boots of the CV joints can become cracked, torn, or otherwise compromised. Once moisture and dirt get into a CV joint and grease makes its way out, the CV joints days are numbered. Signs of impending failures are a click-click-clicking or metallic crackling noise while turning and accelerating or a clunking upon deceleration. While one can repack, reboot, and rebuild CV axles, it makes more sense for the average do-it-yourselfer to procure replacement units and swap out the old axles. If a boot is torn or missing, it is possible to save the joint if caught early enough, but usually the damage has already been done. Replacing or servicing the entire CV joint axle assembly may be the smarter move since replacing a boot may involve removing an axle, which may also involve removing half or all of the vehicle's brakes and suspension.
