tire off, brakes off, tie rod off, disconnect strut, and a few holding bolts. axle will slide out with a little bang from a hammer or a little pull if your lucky

The best way is to replace the complete halfshaft/axle assembly with a rebuilt unit. You will be done in no time. Replacing the boots is a chore and the cost of a rebuilt axle isn't much more than the boot kits.

'''legal term.''' usually when the boots go bad the entire axle needs replacement for safety reasons. you don't know how much debris ,dust,water and or contaminants when in to the axle and it will just eat those joins away causing axle failure (vehicle accidents). '''do it your self term.''' on the other hand if is your personal vehicle and you doing it your self you could buy a kit at an autoparts store and yeah just replace the boots and grease them up.

take it off, buy a new one, put it on. it worked for me!

Sometimes the boots crack in a seam and hard to find. If there is grease there is a rip.

Not easy!!! Get a manual on your car and it will help on the next repair.

Consider replacing the complete axle assembly rather than repairing a CV joint or replacing a torn boot. An axle will cost around $80. I have tried replacing boots with "split boots" that you can put on without removing the axle from the car or doing any disassembly. Unfortunately, they do not last a long time. I did replace a boot with a homemade cloth one. That lasted a long time.

Bad axle maybe? Does it do it when you turn one way or another? Check to see if the cv boots are torn.

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.

The only replacable parts on an axle are the axle boots. The axle constant velocity joints take special equipment to rebuild the half-shafts.

Much better to replace the whole axle, look at for a guide on how to replace an axle in a Honda Odyssey

To replace the axle on a 1993 Honda Civic the axle nut has to come off. The hub assembly also will need to be pulled back so the axle can be pulled from the transmission.

It is up above the rear axle housing. It looks like a bear to get to, but isn't too hard to replace.

If it's a swingaxle Bug, they make a kit with a retrofit boot. You cut the old boot off and bolt the new one together around the axle. An IRS Bug requires a pair of circlip pliers and a CV bolt socket. Take the axle out of the car and remove the circlips from the axle. Knock the axle out of the CVs with a big hammer and a drift punch. Throw the old boots away. Clean and repack the CVs, put the boots on the axle, then the CVs on the axle, then the axle back in the car.

don't replace the joint. replace the axle
