The CV joint boot is bad, and needs to be replaced.
To replace your CV joint you will have to slacken your hub nut before jacking and removing the wheel. Remove hub nut, remove both bolts on the bottom of the shocky, remove bottom ball joint bolt. You should have enough play to remove your shaft from the hub. Remove CV boot, CV joint should just pull off shaft. I made the mistake of buying and fitting a full drive shaft unnecessarily.
ive bought and installed a 5-speed man.trans on a 96 probe that came from a mazda 626 now the pass. side cv shaft will not go all the way in
Sometimes the boots crack in a seam and hard to find. If there is grease there is a rip.
I would recommend purchasing a Haynes Manual. It gives you a complete tear down. You can purchase it at a pepboys
you dont! if you need that then you are buying a new cv shaft.

There is one main thing you will need to know when removing CV axle from the transmission on a 1995 Mazda 626 on the drivers side. You will need to know that the circlip is what holds the axle. If you unclip that the axle will fall right out of the transmission.
Begin by removing the tire and wheel from your 1987 Honda. Remove the brake assembly and the brake rotor. Remove the CV joint retaining bolts. Reverse the process to install your new CV joint.
