Hello and Welcome to Justanswer, My name is XXXXX XXXXX I am here to try and assist your with your question
sounds like the spindle threads are striped and the nut will not come off
if you cannot get the nut off and it just spins then you will need to replace the whole assembly cv shaft and all
you will need to remove the whole assembly via the ball joints and replace the cv shaft
Do I have to remove cv boot and upper control arm?
since it is striped yes
you will need to replace them unless you can get the nut off
I don't fully understand do I have to replace cv boot also or just the spindle shaft or all of it?
it is all attached as on need the whole cv shaft
NEED TO BUY A COMPLETE CV SHAFT
So to take off CV shaft I need to remove upper control arm?
unless you can get the nut off
if not all needs replaced
I have the new hub assembly so if I order a CV shaft will that come with new bearings and all or will that be a separate cost?
that is seperate
the cv shaft is just the shaft the bearing is just the bearing need spindle what the shaft goes through
So to remove cv shaft I have to take off the boots and the snaprings?
to take the shaft out you need to remove the nut that is striped
to remove cv shaft I have to remove all the boots and the snaprings?
if the nut does not come out then you need to remove the cv and spindle as a assembly
no snAP RING
THE PROPER WAY IS YOU REMOVE THE BIG NUT and push the cv through the spindle
since its already stripped should I try to get bolt off any way possible like using a prybar to hold hub in place to get bolt off?
shure but you will still need to replace the cv shaft
the threads are striped you will never get it back together
so if I understood you correctly I need to replace the whole cv shaft assembly thats including the cv joint?
ok just trying make sure I order all the parts I'm going to need
no problem sometimes over the internet hard to understand
after I get it off I should obviously inspect the internal parts and replace the ones that are bad or how do I know which ones are bad?
wHAT IS THE ORIGINAL PROBLEM YOU ARE TRYING TO SOLVE?
I went in for an alignment originally and they said I needed to replace the wheel bearings on front passenger side
I get it and you tried to remove the cv and the threads are striped
ok click here for what needs to be replaced
I have a chilton's manual and it talks about a locking hub assembly is that what my model vehicle is because it talks about a locking key and that I need not break it
click on the blue link and all in pics needs replaced since nut is striped
no on the question
you do not have a locking hub
normally yoiu remove the big nut get the cv out of the way remove three bolts replace bearing
can i print or save the pictures on that site you sent me to?
yes it is a pdf
just save it or print it out
ok thanks I think I'm good for now thank you.
