How much does it cost to replace CV joints - half axle on a Taurus - Sable?
Well, that depends on if you are willing to do it yourself or
have someone else do it. Doing it yourself will require about
$70.00 for the CV shaft and some time, effort, and know
To have a garage do it, there will be a wide range of prices.
The average price, including parts, is $400.00-$600.00. If you
purchase the part you may be able to lower this price.
The job is not difficult, but it is time consuming and takes at least one special tool. I recommend going to a certified mechanic unless you are fairly savvy with cars.
I paid $150 for an axle replacement on a 1993 Sable.
Makes it worthwhile to do some heavy pricing research, along with selecting a reputable mechanic/repair shop.
Btw, nowadays I do my own - guess that makes me pretty durned savvy ;)
Truthfully a good mechanic can have it done in about 15 minutes. You still will be charged 1 to 2 hours labor. Let me point out it is not that they are really cheating you. what you are paying for is there years of experience. Most places have a computer program with the allotted times jobs are charged by. They have to pay for this service it might be from Mitchel to all-data. p.s. I…
Both cv boots are bad on my 1998 Nissan Altima GXE and I hear a strange grinding noise while turning left and right is it safe to say I need to replace my cv joints and would an axle assembly fix it?
Once the CV boots have failed (unless you were watching when it happened) the cv joint inside has gone bad from grit and running dry. Don't mess with an individual CV joint. Replacing the whole axle makes much more sense in the long run, since it is actually less effort and you will end up with a new axle and 2 new CV joints. The axle half-shaft includes both CV joints for that side of…
What size is the axle - hub retainer nut and its torque specification on a Ford Taurus - Mercury Sable?
I can say from very recent experience: 30mm Torque: 170-200 ft. lbs. Torque specification for axle nut: 170-200 ft. lb. The axle nut should be a 30mm.

Remove the brake caliper and hang it on a wire so as not to strain hose, then remove caliper mounting. Now tap back of rotor to remove it. Detach tie rod end from knuckle, remove ABS sensor (this is very difficult, they stick) Remove control arm from knuckle.

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. Replacing CV Joints There are places that sell the halfshaft axles already rebuilt as cheap as you can replace the joints. Call your local parts stores.
A lot of factors need to be taken into account to answer this question. How many miles? Which engine? was it properly maintained?Trans axle filter and fluid changed regularly? I've owned and sold quite a few Gen 2 Taurus/Sable (`89-`95) platforms over the years. In just about all configurations(3.0l, 3.8l, and 3.4l SHO) automatics and manuals. When well maintained, they are excellent vehicles. My current model is a rust-free 1993 Sable LS 3.8L/AXODE a/t, every…
Sometimes, the car thinks the runway is too short and jumps so it won't crash at the end. Also, consider checking engine mounts, transmission mounts, cradle mounts (if FWD) and CV joints and U-joints. Engine mounts and cradle mounts would be the most common causes that I've seen. If the car is FWD, consider lightly powerbraking in Drive with the hood open and look for excessive movement suggesting a torn or weak motor mount. If…
Having the same issue with my 95 Lumina. First determine if its on the left or right side, then determine if its the wheel bearing or a bearing in the drive axle. If theres clunking associated with the humming (like mine) then its most likely the latter. Is cheaper to just replace the entire drive axle too by the way
