All the major auto retailers across the country sell remanufactured axles at a very reasonable price.It is alot of work to replace cv axles,and required equipment is a compressor and 1/2" drive air gun capable of 200 foot pounds of torque to remove the axle nuts.Honda short side axle is always more involved removal of suspension components,to get room to remove the axle.

The boot that covers the "CV Joint" has been detached.


When the rubber boot tears/woreout it allows the grease from the cv axle to be thrown out. The axle will not last long at highway speed. You can buy a temp boot but they do not last long.If you can do it yourself.Go to a parts store like autozone and get the complete cv axle.It is a complete rebuild with enter and outer boots. Or buy the parts and take to a garage.If you can afford it do both sides..

1993 Toyota Corolla DX, 141,00 miles. Found out the CV boot on the driver's side is cracked, it was making a "grinding" noise and the mechanic found the crack by squirting grease in the boot....


You might be able to replace the boot only, but in all the years I have been working on cars ( close to 40) I have yet to see a boot repair that works. The only way to "fix" a bad boot is to replace it with a one piece boot and that means you have to remove the axle and dissasemble the CV joint. I just replace the whole CV axle.

Noise around the wheels of my corolla 2007


'Clunky' noises around the front wheels especially when turning indicates worn Universal 'CV' joints: this can sometimes be minimized by greasing the CV joints. This is a common condition if the CV joints rubber covers or 'boots' are split: if you don't need to replace the CV joints yet, you will need to replace the damaged boots with what are called 'split' boots.

Hope it helps: let me know how you go!

I think my front universal joint is making a noise


Your vehicle may be covered under the 100,000 mile warranty. The axles are part of the powertrain and I would see my dealer before I tried to fix anything. Good Luck

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.

Changing a CV joint


CV boot and CV joints are different. Boot covers the joint which protects it from debris and other harmful things. if your boots are cracked then just change them. pretty cheep to do yourself. but if you look at the joints and there is dirt on them then you have a problem. i have that same thing and its fine for me unless i turn on the 4W. then you hear a clicking noise. eventually if you keep going like that your car will stop moving. you can look to buy new cv halfshafts. for a good price go to pep boys. best deal i've found anywhere
