Cv Joints Argh!

have a 1993 corsica 2.2 330,000 kms. My cv joint driver side is starting to tick when i drive it. can they be replaced at home easily without paying 50 bucks an hour on labour? if so where can i get a hold of the instructions on line to do it without buying the book?

I wouldn't say it's done easily for everyone. It depends on your mechanical ability. I did my wifes 94 Corsica in the driveway in about an hour and it wasn't a big deal. You will need basic tools and a couple specialties. It's nice to have a floor jack while doing it and you will definitly need a joint splitter.

Couple of suggestions:

1. Get a manual.
2. Replace the entire axle assembly and do both sides. If one side is shot the other one is not far behind.

My $.02 worth.

Your local library may have a book or online subsciption to a site with service manual info that you could print out.
