    CV Axle replacement 2002 Honda CRV

    Hello all, I've owned my 02 AWD manual trans for about 3 years now and have had no major problems. It has ~ 160,000 miles and I just noticed that the driver's side front CV axle boot busted open pretty significantly and has shot out a significant amount of grease. I'm going to replace both axles while I'm at it. But I have a question. Are the axles different for a manual vs. an auto trans. I cant seem to find too much info about this but I want to make sure before I purchase the axles. Can anyone help? Thanks in advance!

    They are not the same. Here is yours:

    The one for the automatic:

    If your axles are okay I would just replace the boots - way less duckies.

    Now that I've learned my lesson, I'm supremely confident that next time I'll make a different mistake.

    I appreciate the help! I might replace just the boots. I need to inspect the rest of the axle to see if the rust is just superficial and. I'm glad I didnt just buy the first ones I saw, thanks!

    If they have made that much of a mess already your better off just buying new axles. If your seeing any rust that means moisture has already penetrated. Might as well buy new and do the job once. But you don't have to buy the Honda ones listed. Get Cardone rebuilt ones, a lot cheaper and still good quality/warranty.
