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
Sanding your knuckles before starting work can help. That way you cant skin them
