SOURCE: 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).

Naturally you need to remove the tire then the brake caliper. After the brake caliper is removed then you need to remove the 34mm axle nut that is inside the hub. After that is removed then you can remove the hub. Becareful not to damage the hub seal on the back or you will have to buy a new hub (100 or more). Then you need to remove the strut knuckle assembly. Once the knuckle assembly is removed then you can pull the CV axle. Take care the inner CV housing is held in place by an inner snap ring. You will probably have to pry off the inner housing. Once the axle is off then install the new axle (if you buy complete axle). Make sure if you are doing both that you take care which side you are installing. I made that mistake and double the work. Slide the new axle on the spline and make sure it is seated completely. Then put back together the reverse of removal.

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.

Lift and support front end on suitable jack stands preferably on frame. Remove right front cv axle, stub shaft, and seal. You will need to pull the right front brake caliper assembly loose and place to the side. Then remove bolts from shock and upper control arm and hub nut to do this. Next, remove axle lock actuator on passenger side of front axle. Place a drain pan underneath front diff cover and remove cover and drain axle. In the center of differential there will be an 8 mm head bolt holding spider gear cross-shaft. Remove bolt and cross-shaft only! Push inner axle in until clip clears inside of passenger spider gear. Set clip aside and push/pull axle shaft straight out to passenger side.

Can you remove the driver side cv axle from a 2005 Chevy asteo van AWD permenanlry


The CV axle stub (end with the axle nut on it) supports the wheel bearing, removing the axle then driving on it would cause the bearing to wear prematurely. I would not recommend this. The front differential is also sealed by the cv assembly, removing it would cause the diff fluid to leak out . CV shafts for this van run $50-80. I would replace if it is bad, instead.

Where is toyota constant velocity u-joint located


Like all front-drive cars using CV joints, there are 4 CV joints on the car near the engine. The vehicle has 2 axles (left and right, driving the corresponding front wheel). Each axle has 2 joints, one on each end. Typically the outer CV joints fail first, as their range of movement is greater due to steering the vehicle.

In modern practice the entire left or right axle is replaced when a CV joint goes bad.

Constant Velocity joints and U-joints perform a similar function, but are not really the same thing. U-joints are more typically used on rear-drive or truck-based 4WD vehicles.

It could be the right side CV. Have you thought to put the spare on the right front to eliminate an out of balance tire? Then if it does not help you can switch back when changing the CV.

Loud knocking sound from front drive axle side


I really doubt that its the spider gears that are bad. Most likely that its the axle shaft- not as bad as it sounds- I sell lots of them.
