How to Remove CV Joints in a Chrysler PT Cruiser

69

The Chrysler PT Cruiser melded classic panel van styling with current technology. When the Cruiser was first introduced in 2001, it set the auto world ablaze. Various iterations of the Chrysler PT Cruiser have included a wagon, the original two-door coupe and a two-door convertible. The Chrysler PT Cruiser is a front-wheel drive vehicle, which means that the engine is backed by a transaxle that drives a pair of axle half shafts. These half shafts utilize constant velocity joints to allow them to rotate at any angle as you drive the car. When a CV joint fails, replace it or the half shaft.
