A lot of play in cv axle at hub

Postby MightyMO0o » Mon Mar 12, 2018 7:28 am

HeY guys I have been noticing a rattle coming from both front wheels when I drive in rough road or hit small bumps, for a while now and decided to finally look at it, it appears that the cv axle is moving in the hub, I have manual locking hubs and he cv boots are torn on both sides but are not clicking, I’m just wondering is this a hub problem or is this a cv problem, I don’t feel like replacing both cv joints if I only need to do the boots and maybe have a look at the hubs, any help appreciated, cheers fellas.

There is a needle roller bearing in the hub which the cv passes through. These do fail. You are 80% of the way in by the time you do the boots. Tap it out from the outer side of the axle and back in very gently from the inside. Dont know the bearing number but unless someone has the number they are not expensive at holden dealer

Hi Alan, would you be able to point me to the correct workshop manual so I can hunt down these needle roller bearing and new seals. I don't even know what they are called, front hub drive shaft bearings? When I grab hold of the outer CV's I can move them up and down quite nicely. They will be full of sand and mud by now. Thanks heaps.

As far as I know the seal is dealeer only. Also the original seal has been superseded with a new version. The catch with this new seal is that it is 2 parts which are sold separately. 1 part goes on the stub axle the other on the cv. You might as well get the needle roller from the dealer as well. It is cheaper from a bearing shop but they dont list it. You need the bearing number off the old one unless buying from a dealer

Awesome guys. I will go hunting for parts. I will replace the top and bottom ball joints at the same time as those rubbers have split a long time ago. Should have done all of this when I first got the Mu but only did the CV boots, bugger. I'll let you know how I get on but might take some time to get round to it. Thanks heaps.
