cv joint

  1. 9-5 Workshop
    Awhile back the nut retaining the drivers side ball joint from the lower control arm came loose and ended up causing the ball joint to slip out of it's slot as well as pulling the axle shaft from the transmission. I replaced the nut and bolt that popped off, but that's it. I now have this weird...
  2. 9000 Workshop
    So I found a CV boot torn and am in the process of replacing it. I have the axle off the car and am trying to get the circlip out and have had no luck. At this point buying a whole new axle seems like the better investment than the process of trying to get this apart. The question I have is...
  3. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    I have a 2000 9-3 with 5spd manual. I have a pronounced rumble while driving. If I turn the wheel to the left at any speed, I can make the noise go away. Removed wheel this am and inspected. The inner cv joint housing that goes into the transmission is loos and wobbling. The cv Shaft...
  4. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    I just got my brand-new-to-me 2000 Saab 9-3 with 103k miles back from my local Saab mechanic today. I had them do a thorough inspection of all systems, and print me out the (inevitable) list of things I'll need to fix. First one that jumped out was "inner driver loose in transmission, leaking...
  5. 9-5 Workshop
    Hi all, I have a 2002 Saab 9-5 Aero, Manual trans @ 160k miles. When I press the brakes at low speed, more often than not, the ABS goes off. I have been told by many Saab veterans that one or both of my ABS rings are bad. I found this site, which has the rings...

    Driving. It Broke Down. Figured it was a CV Joint so I bought a new one. Upon installation That Spindle Gear COG Thing on the inside of the Gearbox where the CV joint would go in was really loose. I put My finger in there to center it and it moved completely out of the way like two inside on...
  7. C900 Workshop
    I'm experience a vibration and funny sound from the drivers side. I've also noticed that when I make a sharp turn, I hear a clicking or knocking sound, but I don't think it's the power steering. A friend thought maybe the issue is the CV joint? Anybody else have experience with this? Am I in...

    Help!!! I'm trying to replace the complete front RH axle (w/ inner CV flange) on my daughter's 93 9000 CSE Turbo and cannot get out the existing one. Do I have to remove the motor mount and half shaft? what am I missing here?

  10. C900 Workshop
    Hi I'm getting a high pitch noise, while accelerating. The noise could be described as a wine or humming. The noise ONLY happens above about 55km/h and only happens when the accelerator is in a certain position, light acceleration. too much acceleration = no noise, rolling = no noise. Also...

    I have 2 torn CV Joints. I am going to put them and re-grease them. The joint seam to be in good shape since I don't hear any clicking or other noises. I will inspect all part when I disassemble... What is the recommended grease to repack the CV JOINTS????
