Hi Folks,

I try to replace my Avalon's CV boot (outer), which is 1996 before Aug. I have a difficulty to remove driveaxle from axleshaft. I released lock ring from axleshaft. I feel that driveaxle can be moved back and forward very small gap. Could anybody please give me some advice?

Thanks!

Felix

The two cars I've done it on (non Toyota) took a crowbar to pop them out. They normally don't come out by hand even for buff people.

*edit* I forgot... If that doesn't work, start tapping it with a small<er> sledge hammer and go from there... Seriously.

I used a piece of wood (on the driveshaft, after the bolt was off) and hit that with a sledgehammer (held it ~4 inches from the head though.. didnt hit it THAT hard.. )

It really takes a lot of force to pop the axils out. I had to use a pry bar and a Dead blow hammer. Once out don't bother changing the boots. A rebuilt axil is about $70.00. All new boots and the CV Joint is repacked with a 1 year warranty.

Would a bad CV axil make a front tire vibrate so much it feels like you going over a rumble strip. I purchased a 95 with less then 70K on it. Ran great for weeks and then the right front tire felt like it was going over a rumble strip. Then about a mile later it stopped. It has been coming and going and hard to explain to the mechanic what it is doing. Seems to happen after going around a sharp right hand turn.

Thanks for any feedback.
