How to replace CV joint?

For replacement of the car outer CV joint a specialist will lift the car with the help of a jack, demount the wheel, from the side of which works are performed, remove the brake disk and the caliper, the ball joint and the tie rod end.

The car is set on a servicing pit or a lifting platform, after this, bolts fastening the CV joint are unscrewed from under the car bottom, the part is removed from the gearbox housing and the CV joint is removed from the drive shaft splines. Then a new component is installed and assembling in the reversed order is performed.
