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.
If you have less than 100,000 miles on it, and are the original owner, it is still covered by warranty.
Bad CV joints. Replace the CV joints.
How do you replace the CV joints on a 1993 Nissan Sentra XE?"
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.
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 2000 Ram had u joints, not cv joints at the front axle.
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.
