Due to some Major surgery and being incapacitated and unable to do it my self, I allowed my cousin to try to replace my right passenger side Cv Axle.... some how he broke the Intermediate shaft and I need to find another to replace it... I am having no luck finding one..... does anyone know of a good place on line that sells after market parts CHEAP, or is there another name for the intermediate shaft??? please help!
Hi, I'm new to the forums and a new Mazda owner :) whenever I cut the wheel all the way to the right or left I hear a slight popping noise coming from somewhere near the front wheels. I've replaced both CV axles, before I did it was much louder, but haven't replaced the front passenger side Sway Bar Link. Maybe this is causing the sound? I also need to replace both bushings. What could be causing the noise? Also I believe I am in need of an alignment could this be the issue? I've attached some pics of something else I think may be causing it but I don't know what it's called. It's the grey plunger looking thing. Thanks in advance! :)
I have a 1997 Mazda 626 2.0 4 cylinder. There is a shaking in the steering wheel that feels like the tires are wobbling, and when pressing the brakes it feels like its pulsating. First I started by changing the front brakes and rotors because those were needed them and I also changed the caliper and brake hose on the passenger side (that is where the problem seemed to be coming from). After this the problem was still there and I had a mechanic look at it and was told to replace the axles and that the new rotors were warped. When pulling out the old I noticed the teeth on the intermediate axle shaft were messed up (like they had been ground down in certain spots). I bought aftermarket axles from Autozone and got the intermediate shaft from a junkyard that seemed to be in pretty good shape. I also took back the rotors but they turned them instead of trading them for new ones. I also changed the back wheel cylinders and brakes because they were needed as well. Well the vibrating is still there. The problem is that the shaking/vibrating isn’t always there. It seems like is starts after a lot of braking. Before it felt like a wheel was going to shake off and now its not near as bad but you can still feel the steering wheel. Does anyone have any suggestions on what this could be?
**when i say seized i mean when its seized in the hub** this guide can also be used to remove cv axles that are not seized TOOLS REQUIRED: Impact gun with a metric impact socket set or a ratchet respectively 25 ton press with collar and blocks Torch Picklefork or hammer Needle nose pliers Flathead screwdriver Size 17 wrench Cauter pins So first you have to remove your tire, the lugs are size 21 remove your brake hose clip, use the flathead to kind of pry the clip off then you need to remove your brake caliper by taking off these 2 bolts remove your rotor now remove your cv axle spindle nut now remove one of the bolts on your strut tower by putting a wrench on one side and the impact on the other the size is 17mm leave the top one in to remove the ball joint and tie rod end then remove the top bolt. remove the bolt on the ball joint, you need a wrench to put on one size and impact on the other to remove it im sorry but i forgot the size lol remove the nut holding your tie rod end on, it should have a cauter pin in it, just use the needle nose to remove it and when you reinstall it make sure to put a new cauter pin in use either a picklefork or a hammer to seperate the steering knuckle/hub from the lower control arm with the ball joint in it, do the same for the tie rod end if neccisary and there you go! you should be able to remove it all in one piece! the video footage is just below this along with the pic of my new cv axle and a bit more of the removal proccess before the machine shop put it in their press which is much better than ours lol thanks for reading guys! the rest of the videos will be up soon! thanks again for reading!
