- Remove wheel - remove caliper and brake pads - remove rotor - you should use a ball-joint separator (a.k.a. pickle-fork) to remove the ball-joint otherwise it is a very difficult process.

It is easier to replace the whole hub assembly. -remove wheel - remove caliper, brake pads and disk - disconnect tie rod end (separator required) - undo strut mount bolts - separate ball-joint (separator required)

Remove wheel and brake caliper, remove caliper frame and ABS cable.Separate tie rod end and ball joint from steering knuckle. Remove hub nut and pull knuckle away from outer cv joint. Insert a thin pry bar between cv inner and transaxle case and jerk it to loosen cv joint. Re-install in reverse order.

The grinding noise in the front of a 1990 Dodge Caravan could be a cv joint. If it is, it probably only grinds when you take a sharp turn. There is one located on each side.

Remove the rear U-Joint and be very careful not to loose caps or any needle bearings. Uses lock rings to hold it in place. Tape it together with duck tape. Now pull the drive shaft out of the transmission and remove the front U-Joint from the driveshaft and replace it. Reinstall in reverse order.

Jack up the side you want to replace and put a jack stand under it. Remove the ball joint clamp bolt and nut. Remove the bolt completely. Remove the 2 bolts holding the ball joint to the control arm and take it off.

This for the 4x4 version, remove the caliper and brake assembly, remove the spindle nut (large bar or very large impact) remove the lower ball joint nut slowly with a jack under the ball joint and gently release the pressure on the suspension eventually lowering the jack. swing the wheel hub assembly a side and remove the axle. place the joint in a supported vise and remove the retainer clips that hold the u-joint stable in the joint housing, gently with a socket the same sixe of the u-joiny cap and a brass hammer pound the joint from the housing, install the new joint and reassembly in the reverse of disassembly. Be sure to torque the spindle not and replace all clips/kotter pins.

For the lower ball joint, remove the lower control arm and the ball joint seal. Press the ball joint from the control arm. Press the new ball joint into the lower control arm ensuring it is fully seated, install a new seal and the lower control arm.

CV joints on any car are part of a "half-shaft," and they run from the wheel to the transmission.

User Avatar

don't repalce just the cv joint. You should purchase a rebuilt axle, it will be cheaper and easier. You should be able to get a repair manual from you local library. This should be a fairly straight forward job.

Check the engine mounts. If the engine is not square it will brake them all the time.
