CV axle replacement
Posted 03 January 2004 - 04:53 PM
Looks like I will be doing an axle replacement here soon on my hatchback. This will be the first one I have done. Up until now I have gotten by just replacing the boots right when they go bad. Even though the boots are all good, the joints are making noise and I have a pretty bad highway vibration. So I have decided to throw a couple of new axles on it. My question is this: My Haynes manual says that when I get the axle/steering knuckle assembly off the car that I have to take it to the dealer to have the axle removed from the steering knuckle. Is this really necessary or is there a way around it? I'd like to do this entire job myself. How have you guys done it? Thanks for your help!

Skip's been here since 1842 and other's cry where Skip shines. Nice showing Brother. BTW, that's a compliment.
So SKip's a Conjourer and created a Subaru for crossing the Ocean Blue? Did he color it too?
