Most likely it's a CV joint.
Remove the u-joint from the back of the transmission. Remove the transmission mount bolts. Remove the transmission bolts. Remove the linkage. The transmission will slide backwards and can be removed.
could be a contant velocity joint
Drop gearbox down from cross member,Use a power bar & several long extentions with a knuckle joint attatched!

Its just above the right inner CV joint, plugged into the bottom/ back side of the engine block. You can only get to it from under the car.
Remove wheel hub, remove the 4 bolts holding the ball joint in place, heat it up with a torch, then bash the crap out of with a hammer til the ball joint pops out.
The Nissan Sentra is a Front Wheel Drive(FWD), and as such has no u-joint. Since the engine is transversely(sideways) mounted, there is no driveshaft to connect from the transmission to the axe housing. Instead directly fromt he transmission outdrive there are a pair of halfshafts which go out to the wheels. Each halfshaft has an inner and outter CV joint. CV Means Constant Velocity. They are smoother in operation, and can be turned into a deeper arc then can a u-joint usually. As for why CV joints are not used in place of u-joints everywhere t's a matter of economics. u-joints are MUCH stronger, and cheaper to manufacture, but they will not work in a FWD situation. Rear Wheel Drives drivelines are subjected to ALOT higher torque multiplication then any front wheel drive is capable of. While it's possible to get extreme amounts of horsepower out of those little engines, it's the torque that really breaks things, not the horsepower.
I know you will need a pickle fork or ball joint separator for the joints, other than that i think it just unbolts so sockets and wrenches
I am assuming the axle cv joint itself is bad an not just the boot. If the cv joint is bad you will have to replace the whole axle itself. 1. Drain transmission fluid. 2. Remove wheel. 3. Loosen and remove axle nut and remove whatever is necessary to free axle from wheel/suspension area. 4. Using a prybar or large screwdriver pop axle out of transmission and replace.

The transmission will have to be disassembled.
Remove the tire and wheel. Remove the brake assembly and rotor. Remove the retaining nut from the ball joint. Pound the ball joint out with a hammer. Reverse the process to install the new ball joint.
If it is a manual transmission, there will be a fill plug 1/2 way up on the side. Remove the plug and insert your little finger to the first joint. Bent it to the first joint and you should feel the fluid. If not then add. If it is an automatic, warm up the engine Put the transmission in park and check the level.
This is easy, you need to remove the small bolts that hold on the U joint to the drive line. Be careful removing the driveline from the yolk of the transmission because there are small roller bearings inside the caps of the U joint that may fall out.
The rear universal joint on a 1998 Nissan Pathfinder should be replaced when it becomes worn out or broken. Symptoms of a worn joint include rough handling and suspension issues.
- 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.
There is a brackets that goes across the transmission you must first remove that for more working room you can remove the exhaust then remove all of the bolts around the converter and remove the u joint as well you will need to pull the trany staright back then down make sure the car is on jack stands and its prob best to have someone with some expirence in it to help
Remove the tire and wheel. Remove the brake assembly and rotor. Remove the ball joint retaining nut. Pound the ball joint out with a hammer. Reverse the process to install the new ball joint.
There are a number of parts that must be disengaged to remove a transmission from a 99 Lincoln Continental. Some of the parts include the shift linkage, throttle kick down, U-joint, lower bell housing and all attached hoses.
Jack the car out and remove the wheel. Remove the ball joint nut. Pound the ball joint out with a sledgehammer. Reverse the process to install the new ball joint
Remove the tire and wheel. Remove the ball joint retaining nut. Pound the ball joint out with a hammer. Reverse the process to install the new ball joint.
