How To Replace a Front Wheel Drive Axle - EricTheCarGuy
If you start to notice your FWD vehicle clicking when you make a tight turn, you might have an issue with the outer CV joint. If you make a right turn, it's usually the left side that's bad and vice versa. Most axles are easy to replace and the one depicted in this video is fairly typical of what you run into. The main differences come in with how the lower ball joint is attached. I think this part will give you the most trouble. I often get asked about what to torque the axle nut to. To be hones, I don't know. I've only ever run them down with my impact. I've never had an issue doing it that way and I don't think you would either. Just be sure to stake the nut or install the cotter pin and retaining clip if it has one. If you'd like more information on how to deal with suspension noises, check out this article I wrote on the topic. http://www.ericthecarguy.com/faq/diagnosing-noises-in-your-car Video on CV boot replacement: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-S-ofMoWsr0 The best place for answers to your automotive questions: http://www.ericthecarguy.com Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/EricTheCarGuy?fref=ts Twitter: https://twitter.com/EricTheCarGuy Google+: https://plus.google.com/100195180196698058780/posts Information on Premium Membership: https://www.ericthecarguy.com/premium-content-streaming-etcg-content Stay Dirty ETCG Due to factors beyond the control of EricTheCarGuy, it cannot guarantee against unauthorized modifications of this information, or improper use of this information.

CV FRONT axle REMOVE and INSTALL Half shaft
This classic video still is useful even in 2015 for removing and installing your CV Axle!!! Hello internet! I put together this video to try to help you figure out how to work on your car and fix it by removing and installing your CV halfshaft. Some people call them cv axles or front driveshafts. Fix your car!!! If you are having issues with your CV boots being ripped and/or leaking this will give you some insight. If you are a beginner or a novice at working on cars BEWARE!!! Working on cars can be extremely dangerous. Take safety precautions and do all of the work slowly. BUY A CAR MANUAL. Like a haynes or chiltons manual. I personally have purchased both of those brands and have found that they are pretty good for what you pay for. This partiuclar style shown in the video isnt really the style that is in the books. There are fewer parts taken off using this method. I see no reason to completely take off the brake assembly and the strut and the tie-rods and all the other stuff many of the books call for. Anyway, i hope this helps. Good luck!!! This procedure is similar for many cars! Toyota Dodge Chrysler Ford Buick VOLVO GM Chevy Plymouth Subaru VW GEO Eagle Delorean... well im not so sure about the delorean.
