I may not use all of the proper terms, but I think you'll figure it out. I have a 2013 Edge FWD 3.5l with 26K miles. Something poked a hole in my cv boot and it's cheaper and easier (in my opinion) to replace the entire axle instead of just the boot. I got an axle through eBay from Detroit Axle for $48 free ship. Here goes...... After removing the wheel, I removed the abs sensor from the back of the hub (5/16 bolt). I removed the 10mm bolt that is in the middle of the flexible brake line so the caliper can move more. Remove the bolt in the middle of the hub holding the cv axle in (don't remember size but is metric). You will more than likely have to give the end of the shaft a good whack with a hammer to get it loose.  I removed the two bolts holding the strut assembly to the hub (dont remember size). Don't let it hang by the brake line. It will damage it. Use wire or something to hold it up. You will now be able to remove the outer part of the cv axle. The inner part is a little more tricky. There is a compression snap ring holding it in the half shaft (tube/shaft connecting cv to the transmission). Side note; sometimes the new cv axles come with the half shaft. I found that removing the half shaft with the cv is easier than trying to separate them as is. there were three bolts holding the half shaft to the engine block. (2x15mm 1x13mm) After you remove those bolts. the shaft will come right out of the transmission. (no fluid came out of mine) Give the cv a couple good whacks with a hammer and it will come right out of the half shaft. My cv did not come with the dust seal already on it so i had to take it off of my old one. (seal where the cv mates with the half shaft).  - Caleb

Did both of mine on a 2007.  Bought them from Detroit Axle.  Also had to remove the dust seals on both sides.  These are really nice quality parts.  The boots on my old ones were fine but the drivers side was getting noisy making left turns.

Hello, first off great write up, I was wondering if there was any trick to getting the three bolts holding the half shaft in?

Did you take the intermediate shaft out? I have a seal leaking where the intermediate shaft goes into the transmission. I am just doing a little background Intel before I go digging into this. I have a 2008 FWD edge
