I've never worked on a KIA, but I wanted to give you just a bit of info. Its actually cheaper to buy the right or left axle, not to mention less work. Front wheel drive cars have 4 CV joints. 2 per axle. Just ask for a rebuilt Half-shaft. Good Luck

do not get a rebuilt axle, you will regret it

The average cost to replace CV joints is approximately $300. It is more inexpensive and less time consuming to replace both CV joints.

Bad CV joints. Replace the CV joints.

If you have less than 100,000 miles on it, and are the original owner, it is still covered by warranty.

It is not cost-effective to attempt to replace just the CV joints. Rebuilt CV shafts are available for as little as $60.

Getting a new half axle might be the way to go on this one. It will probably be the next thing to go anyways

On the Chrysler there are no such things as "CV joints". There are however "U joints". To remove them you would have to drop the driveshaft and have them pressed out by a machine shop.

That depends which model it is. On older models CV-joints were moulded into the driveshaft. To be replaced they had to be removed using a press and then warmed to be able to replace them. On these models it is often better to replace the whole driveshaft. On newer models CV-joints are attached with clips and can be replaced more easily.

The CV joint in a 2000 Kia Sportage can be replace by roving the tires, axle nuts, and the knuckle bolts on the struts. Next, the CV joint can be removed by placing a screwdriver between the transmission and the CV joint will pop out.

The 2000 Ram had u joints, not cv joints at the front axle.

User Avatar

Maybe it is one of the other cv-joints. Each half shaft has two cv-joints. Better off replacing the complete halfshaft with a rebuilt unit than to replace the one cv-joint only.

The CV joints in 1999 Malibu can be replaced by removing the front tires and moving the brake lines out of the way. Next, you will need to remove the nuts for the CV joints by using force to remove it from its housing.

It is the CV joint within the axle. I would replace it with the entire axle assembly.To save money I would buy a good used axle then bring it to a local garage.

If the CV joints are in good shape, only replace the boots. A aftermarket boot can be installed with out changing CV joints. VW bugs has been doing this for years. If the joints are scored then pull the outside wheel,hub and bearing (need puller). Disconnect turning rods. Reassemble

Buy a split boot from the parts store- that way you won't have to remove the shaft. As long as you have the half shaft out, why not replace it since there is probably some damage to it from having a damaged boot?

the cv joints tap off with hammer,from 2005,advise changing rounded split clip when fitting new cv

It does have CV joints but, it is best to just swap out the complete axle assembly than to replace only the CV joint. You will spend much time and almost as much money trying to replace the CV joint than to just purchase a reconditioned axle assembly and swap it.

The CV joints on a 1995 Ford Taurus can be replaced by removing the front tires, and the nuts on the lower ball joint. Next, the lower ball joint will need to be removed and the CV joint can be removed.

Check your local library for a repair manual, or automedia.com

Really tight. Those are most likely hardened steel and there is no such thing as too tight.

A chevy 3500 truck is not front wheel drive, so it does not have CV joints.
