Question about 1992 Honda Accord
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!

Detach the stop ring at the base of the CV joint assembly using a pair of snap ring pliers.
