Whoa Pal !!!!! This is a major undertaking requiring the removal of the Half-shaft and in some cases the strut and spindle assembly. But, once access is gained to the transmission housing outlet then it is just a matter of removing the weather boot and shaft seal, chiseling out the old bushing type bearing and pressing in a new one and reversing all tasks in disassembly.

How do I decide if it's the drive shaft or the CV joint?


It is easier to change the whole half shaft than it is to change just the CV joint.

unlikely to be a cv joint
more likely a disc pad worn out or a failed wheel bearing

Ive replaced the cv shaft but the noise is still their...any ideas?


Have you checked the front wheel bearings? I've seen similar problems on several front wheel drive cars. On my first experience, we also started by changing the CV joints only to find it did not solve the problem. We then though it was a transmission problem.... wrong again. Finally checked the front wheel bearings (Both sides) and found the passenger side was making the noise. Bearing replaced (not cheap by the way) but solved the problem.

I have a 2007 Chevrolet Cobalt. Recently during a snow storm the vehicle went through a ditch. No damage was done to the car. It was the most minute accident ever. Anyways the next day i noticed some noise...


Based on your description, I'm thinking the problem is in the transmission casing. I was thinking it was a wheel bearing, based on your description, but that is contradicted by the fact that you say it doesn't sound like it's a wheel or hub bearing.

You say that the the rf cv axle is now leaking where it goes into the trans. I'd say that's a good place to start looking.

A damaged cv axle or half shaft might make more clicking noises on a tight turn. The cv axle is greased up and has balls inside some designs.

Have you checked the transmission fluid level to see how much fluid has been lost thorugh the place where the cv axle enters the trans.? If adding fluid makes the sound lessen or go away, then the trans. is at fault, vs. the cv axle.

Good luck on this repair.

I recently changed the cv axle on right hand side of my 04 kia sedona, the cv axle went into like a mid bearing and had a small shaft from there into the transmission. that seal at the transmission is...


The seal you need is called a transmission/transaxle output shaft seal. The 2 best things to do, either get the number off the original seal and have it matched at a local autoparts store or go to Kia/Hyundai. they will know the proper seal. Be sure to install the seal evenly into the trans or it may leak again. If you need anything further, please let me know.

I cannot find the transmission speed sensor...help.thank you... 1997 ford taurus..v6 3.0


your looking for the turbine speed sensor a.k.a transmission speed sensor and not the vechile spees sensor correct? they are two different sensors! the transmission speed sensor is on the side of the transmission facing the side of the car around 11 o'clock in relation to the output shaft witch is where the cv axle goes in! if it is the vechile speed sensonr then it is on top of the transmission tail house for the other output shaft and the other cv goes too. if you follow the transmisssion dip stick down to the transmission it is in that area! good luck

How do you change the front left axel on a 1993 buick regal custom. It is making a clicking nois going in revers and forward a t low speeds


This is called a cv shaft. First jack the car up and support the vehicle with jack stands. This is for safety. Then remove the wheel and the brake caliper. you need to unbolt the tie rod end and separate it from its housing. You also need to unbolt the strut from the hub assembly. You might alos have to remove the bolt from the ball joint and remove it from the hub. In the center of the hub assembly is a large nut that will also have to be remove. This is actually holding the cv shaft to the bearing inside the hub. once you have removed the cv shaft from the hub, give it a straight hard **** away fromthe trans. There is a little c clip on the other end of the cv shaft which keeps it inside the trans. If the cv shaft separates into two pieces, this is ok. Take a small pry bar or flat head screw driver and place it between the part of the cv shaft left in the trans and the case. Be gentle but lightly pry against the cv shaft and it should come out of the trans. Reverse the order of disassembly and bang your done.

are u sure the alignment (side to side, up and down) of the trans on the bell housingis not out of spec, that will burn the bearings out very quickly.
