How To Install Replace Front Drive Axle CV Joint Ford Taurus 96-07 1AAuto.com




What do you think about this video?

Deucealive75: Did you lose any trans fluid?

William Elliott: Thanks for your video. I have a 2007 Edge FWD. Is the Axel Nut on it also 30mm or is it a different size ?

John Wallace: Any tips for getting the bolt out that holds the lower end of the strut to the knuckle? 4:15 mark... I got the 21mm nut off, looks like you were able to hammer it through. I put the nut back on and have been hammering it but it won't move almost like it's threaded??? 2001 Taurus. Thanks

WDJ Galvao: Hey there! I got a taurus 2000 and I'm getting a clicking noise between the transmission and the axle i pushed the axle and there is no more room to go into the trans, will that be a problem with the axle or the trans? Thanks! 

WDJ Galvao: Thanks! 

roger56301: Love your videos. Helped me immensely

1A Auto Parts: The video you see if going to be the best step by step that we can offer.

Kris Burger: I have a problem with my '02 ford Taurus. Whenever I shift into a new gear that applies or releases pressure, we always hear a big clunk kind of noise. My step father and I have asked around and we have come to the conclusion that it is either the CV joint, or Transmission Mount. Do you agree with that conclusion? We're supposed to be looking at it this weekend.

Adam Adams: Hi Mike, I have seen this done on a different vehicle where the hub was left hanging on the strut. Is that possible on this model of vehicle?

etchosts: You'll hear a click click when turning also.

parsons585: I just had both drive axles replaced by a shop that has a good reputation but on acceleration there is a little vibration/shutter for just a few moments until it gets to speed. For some reason their mechanic says he can't feel it. I don't know if I'm getting the run around or not. What could cause that? It's my wife's car and she noticed it first and I thought she might be imagining something but I have to agree with her as I don't remember that from earlier times I drove it before the work.

1A Auto Parts: @georgebenfield On our vehicle there was a washer and a 30MM nut that you would need to put back on. This holds the axle to the hub. Hope this helps you out.

1A Auto Parts: You may want to check the simple things like the tires are up to their proper pressure, also check the sway bar links to see if they're worn out. Hope this helps you out.

1A Auto Parts: @mikeunavailable It should come right apart as shown in the video.

Kao Vue: would taking off the strut at any point mess up the alignment?

tomcatdcn: could be control arm bushings

Larry Thornton: I can't get this to work for me. I get where the strut is still about 1 inch inside the knuckle, then it jumps back in to about two inches. I bought a 4 lb hammer for this and I have beat the hell out of it.

26dolla: did u say the hub bolt is 100lbs torque? is this the same for a 03 corolla?

1A Auto Parts: We currently do not have an auto repair manual that shows you how to repair this. If you have a Chiltons or a Haynes manual they may show you how to replace it.

David Seaver: @1aauto I actually figured it out a couple of days ago, and I was able to get the old band onto the boot with it off of the transmission axle housing, and then shimmying the boot onto the transmission axle housing. Before I was trying to put the band on with the boot still on the trans.

1A Auto Parts: Thank you for checking out our auto repair videos on YouTube.

Germain Klassen: Is the process on this video similar to a 2005 ford focus?

lilpsycho213: Why you have less views than expertvillage suprises me! Your videos are freaking 100x better than their's. All i have to say is... my new cv axle works like a charm

sseeker21: Do I need to remove the full axle to replace just the CV joint? Or can I replace this while the axle is still attached to the transmission?

Edward McCammon: thank you this really helped me to replace my drive axle

Jrcuzz: I'm a pretty big dude.if I'm doing this with a jack on the ground how hard is it to remove the snap from the joint?

mossburg2010: I have a question I have a 2002 hyundai sonata 2.7l v6 with auto trans and front wheel drive I have tried replacing the front drivers side cv half shaft that I purchased from napa auto parts I found how to do it on ehow.com but when I have installed the new half shaft my transmission locks up how can I fix it? I have tried doing it about 8-10 times but the same thing happend can you help?

soledeth: I have 2000 Denali how do you know when cv shaft is bad? Or drive shaft bcuz in my car there's clicking noise every time I try to drive it so idk if its drive shaft or cv?

lee-roy jenkins: the problem im having is that the innermost firm rubber boot ripped and i the replacement boot they sold me is only the thin, plyable outer rubber layer of the boot. HELP

Johngodoe133: Do the ball joint mess up when doing this work?

1A Auto Parts: @lexusfan100 Sometimes when your driving down the road you'll hear a thumping noise.

1A Auto Parts: You're welcome, have a great day.

1A Auto Parts: It depends on the hourly rate of the garage doing the work.

wangbungal: is this the same for the ford focus 2002 se? when you insert the axle back,does it have a specific orientation to go back to the transaxle?

1A Auto Parts: It may be, you also may want to check all of your steering components to see if they are worn and need to be replaced.

GSXbuickGNX: To whom this may concern, it is now three weeks later and I've made no progress...why? Because I don't have a deep enough 30mm socket to take off the wheel hub bolt...I called it!!! Pep Boys had one but it was for an impact wrench...$36.00, NO...4 other place didn't have one, and Napa Auto had one, for an impact wrench...$29.00...NO...

53prime: Not so easy on jack stands ;P This video was a great help, thanks guys!

hersel555: Thanks.

Weirdnumbers: I enjoy watching your vids! Just wish i had proper equipment I think the transmission in my 03 Taurus is going.. Every time i make a left turn.. the transmission slips a little bit engine hits about 4000rpms then it catches

gabby f: give or take how much do you think it would cost to take it some where to have it fix i have a 96 ford taurus

1A Auto Parts: @sseeker21 You would need to remove the axle from the transmission. Usually it's easier to just replace the axle.

lexusfan100: what will be the symptoms if the front axle cv joint goes bad

Johngodoe133: If I tighent the front middle bolt to much what would happen when driving

1A Auto Parts: The tools needed for the Focus may be different. You may be able to apply some of the basic procedures shown in this video to your Focus.

DoctorPfunk: I didn't realize it at the time, but one of my boot clamps popped off while I was replacing my shocks last week. I figured it out when the CV joint started clicking. Is it too late to just put a new boot clamp on it?

rovero: has anyone figured out why the strut still stays in about an inch with all the bolts removed? control arm doesnt go low enough or is strut just too long?

ReadySetMoses: I have a 05 Ford Focus, do you think the instructions for this would be comparable, any help would be much appreciated!

bluryang: I have a 2004 Escape and have to replace the alternator. To do that you gotta take off the drive axle. I was scared of doing it and it's still sitting in the driveway. But after watching this video, everything seems similar and will try it tomorrow morn. Your videos are the best out there. Wondering if you will do some Escape videos.

Stephen Boyd: I have a 97 mercury sable, I am currently trying to resolve a problem I believe is stemming from a bad seal at the transmission which you point at in this video. Is there a specialized tool necessary to do this?
