What is the difference between a 2 joint shaft and a 3 joint shaft for a 1996 Dodge Dakota?

The joint you are looking for is the U joint. You have one at the back of the transmission and another where the drive shaft attaches to the rear end. On the extended version there will also be a U joint in the middle. So if you look under the car and the drive shaft just looks like one long tube you have a two joint shaft. If however, you see what appears to be a joint about the size of both of your fists together in the middle of the shaft, you are looking at the third joint.


How do you replace cv joint on a Mazda mx-3?

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.

You probably mean U - joint (universal joint)! Located at each end of drive shaft or axle and possibly in the middle of drive shaft.


How do you replace the cv joint on a 1995 mercury villager?

Replacing the joint involves about the same amount of work and expense as replacing the shaft. Check with your local parts house for cost comparison. The left shaft for my 2001 cost me about $80.00 and required an hour & a half to replace. While you're at the store, pick up a repair manual.


How to replace cv joints on 1988 Honda accord?

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: 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.


How do you repair a cv joint on a 1995 Saturn with a manual transmission?

It's usually much more inexpensive to replace the entire drive shaft than to repair a worn cv joint. The new drive shaft will come with new cv joints and new boots.


How do you know when your cv joint is bad?

I think you mean axle shaft joint. The usual symptom of a bad axle shaft joint is a crunching noise when turning corners.


How do you replace CV joints?

There are places that sell axels already rebuilt as cheap as you can replace the joints. Call your local parts stores. If the CV boot is torn open forget about re-booting the joint, buy a re manufactured axle and replace it as suggested above. 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 half shaft 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.

It is generally not cost-effective to replace individual CV joints. Rebuilt or new CV shaft assemblies in most cases cost less than the joint itself, and are a lot less work to install.
