Question:

How do you replace the axle shaft (CV Joint) on a 1994 Plymouth Grand Voyager?

Not sure what to call it here, I have heard different names for it. But I think anyone who knows will understand what I need to know. PS: It is on the drivers side.If you know of any websites that have pictures would be very helpful.

Answer:

Constant Velocity Axle or Half shaft. Each axle have two CV joints. One inner, one outer. Unbolt and pull outer tie-rod from spindle. Unbolt and pull lower ball joint loose from spindle. Unbolt outer CV axle nut from wheel hub. Tap on the end of the CV axle to loosen it from the hub. Pry down on the lower control arm, and swing out the hub and strut together as a unit. This will permit you to get the outer end of the CV axle completely out of the wheel hub. Then take a pry bar or heavy screwdriver. Insert it behind the inner CV axle joint and pop it out of the transaxle. Reverse to replace with a new or rebuilt CV axle. Hope this helps. I haven't seen any websites with repair info and pictures.

Assuming you already have new axle, Jack up vehicle on the side you intend to remove the axle from and support it with a jack stand. Remove tire, Unbolt swaybar from lower control arm on both sides (this will make it easier to drop lower control arm from balljoint). Remove axle nut. Remove bolt from balljoint, Tap lower control arm till the lower control arm drops. Push axle through center of hub (may have to tap a little). Swing hub assembly out of the way. pull axle out. Tip: you don't have to unbolt the outer tie rod.

well the first thing to do is call autozone and order a new axle after that take off the tire remove bolts from the frame, put a bar into the frame where you remove the bolt, put pressure on the pry bar, then take the pry bar and remove the axle replace and make sure you put tranny fluid in the tranny if you lose any good luck

todays engines run hotter than is past and require better oil.just use current oils which are 100 times better than oils of 60s70s.

Additives just gum things up. Just use good high mileage oil and you should be fine.
