If the CV boot is torn open forget about re-booting the joint, buy a remanufactured axle and replace it. If the boot is starting to crack or separate but has not torn open to the point you can see the cv joint itself you can re-boot it.
To replace the boot and/or halfshaft axle in an 86-91 Honda: First, remove the wheel cover and loosen the 36mm nut holding the joint to the bearing. Then raise the vehicle and remove the lower ball joint from the lower control arm and the knuckle. If your working on the passenger side, drain the transmission. Slide the half shaft out of the knuckle then use a prybar and pry the inboard end of the shaft out of the transmission or intermediate shaft, which ever should apply. Be careful not to damage the seal in the transmission. Installing the shaft is the reverse of removal. The inboard side of the shaft should snap right back into the intermediate shaft and transmission by means of a snap ring on the end of the shaft.

It is just bout as cheap to install a rebuilt axel. Get a manual and it will show you how. I agree. Fixing the CV joints or boots isn't worth it considering most replacement axles come with a lifetime warranty.

A cv axle transmits power to a drive wheel while being able to flex (bend) at the same time. These axles have a cv joint on each end and are common in front wheel drive vehicles.
Yes, the wheel bearings or CV joint could be bad.
its so easy -- you tube has the basics -- if you can do a turnup you can change the cv- halfshaft
My 97 RL was shaking badly too despite new tires & l just had both cv axles replaced and the shaking ended.
the only parts that you can replace on the axle shaft are the cv joints that go into transaxle Cheaper to buy new axles 75 to 100 each side
You aren't supposed to replace them. You aren't supposed to replace them.
No, the end of the cv shaft is what holds the wheel bearing together.No, the end of the cv shaft is what holds the wheel bearing together.
how to change a cv joint on 96 escort
Bellows are also sometimes referred to as "boots". It is a rubber covering over a CV joint that keeps dirt out of the joint. A CV joint is on all front wheel drive axles and some (independent rear suspension) rear axles. If the bellows develops a crack, dirt can get in to the grease within the joint and cause wear.
BIG JOB Get a manual on your car from DISCOUNTAUTOREPAIRMANUALS.COM and it has pictures .
it has a solid front axle, therefore it has u joints, not cv joints found on independent front suspension(ifs) of GMs. CV joints are gonna be awful hard to install on a solid front end...
No, the CV joint is the "flex" part of the drive shafts. The differential is part of the transmission on a fwd car that allows the two axles to turn at different speeds when turning a corner.
If you have less than 100,000 miles on it, and are the original owner, it is still covered by warranty.
