Start by jacking the car (SAFELY secure it up in the air with jack stands) - remove the tire on the side you want to replace, once in there you will need to get at the center of the wheel and remove the nut, pop the axle out and replace..
it would be wise to have a drain pan and rags for any oil which may leak and or seep out..as you progress forward the removal becomes more evident, there are typically no spring type clips, the shaft slides right out. other hint: you may find it easier to turn the steering wheel - again be sure you safely secure the car when it is up off the ground
Best regards

Is it safe to say that my CV axel is bad?


No, sounds like the transfer case is shot. Your is an all time all wheel drive. It has a clutch pack in the T case. They go bad. They will cause the tire to skip and jump, not the CV axle. Pricey fix and no fun to remove. You can remove the front drive shaft to get rid of the skipping until you can replace it.

How do i fix cv axels on a 2002 hyundai accent


It's not worth it to fix the axel, it is wise to replace the axels
by jacking up the car secure the car with jack stands, then remove the wheels, the big center nut of the axel and the lower bolts on the ball joint, then pry the lower control arm down and pull the hubb aside. Now u could remove the axel easily, if stuck take a hammer and tap it lightly, remove it, replace with the new but make sure both ends r lubed with grease.

2005 chev malibu cv joints/ mechanic says cant be fixed


In this days we do not replace Cv joints anymore.. There are rebuilt axels available .. we replace the complete axel with the rebuilt one.. Really cheap at Rockauto.com.. $40-$50 each axel..

What are the symptoms of a bad CV joint on an all wheel drive Volvo


if your cv joint is going bad check the rubber boot located on your front axel if there is a tear in the boot once dirt gets inside the boot depending on how long youve had the noise the cv joint will have to be replaced sometimes the first signs are a clicking noise when turning coming from the cv joint if you catch it early you may get away with just replacing the boot there are two ways of doing this depending on the vehical one is to buy split boot it wraps around the axel and is held together with tiny bolts and nuts the axel doesant have to be removed useing this type you still have to remove the damaged boot and clean the cv joint thoroughly i suggest useing brake parts cleaner be carefull not to get it on any rubber parts or lines then before installing the new boot pack the joint with grease and the boot the other way the old joint must be removed you will have to remove the complete axel assemble the new joint and axel will come as one unit depending on the vehical your balljoint or joints may have to be removed also this method to me is the prefferd way this will assure all is new its more involved but better in the long run

When I drive speeds of 60+ and let go of the gas pedeal, there is mild vibration felt in the steering wheel and a bit in the seat. I bought new tires/alignment in July, and got new brake pads in October....


Cv axel or motor mount The CV axel boots should be good with no tears and with thr trie off the ground and the car in park there shlud be no persectable plat between the axel shaft and the tire when rotating the trie by hand untill the transmistion park or in gear stops it. It's OK for the trans to turn a little before the trans stops it but not the axel hold the inner axel CV and turn the tire again and the inner joint should turn with the tire with no play except the trans slack. If this is good check the other axel the same way if one has more than the other just replace the one with more play anf see if you can get away with just one! The replacement axels are less than $100 new and half that for rebuilt after you turn in the core ( old one ). Their strange as they wear out and some last very long and others a shorter period. Many cars go to the junkyard with the axels in them with lots of miles and their the ones that came with the car.

Best approach is to acquire a repair manual for that vehicle. Pep Boys or similar will likely have one..

Subaru cv axle noise?


Do you know if this car has ever been recked? if your going thru that many axels makes me think something is not running true, a wheel bearing would not make a cv joint in a axel go bad. Did you replace the axels? or did you have them done at a shop, and did you see the old axels after they were replaced. You got bigger problems than a wheel bearing. From what i can gather some thing is bent or your getting bunch of bad axels witch i dought.
