8th gen v6 accord cv joint/axel

So I seem to have diagnosed my car with a bad cv joint / axel based on Google searches. I'm not good with cars, today I changed my spark plugs on my own for the first time because of a misfire. My car has been making a "clicking" sound when turning and seems to get worse/louder as I accelerate during the turn, also feel like when I first use the car for the day the turn doesn't have to be as sharp to make the noise, then if I'm driving it for a little while, if that makes sense. Did I diagnose this correct ? Am able to do this myself ? Please help thank you.

Sounds about right. If you look under the car can you see a visible tear/crack in the rubber of the cv boot? It'd be fairly obvious - there'd be a spatter of grease all over the axle/inside of the wheel area. If the boots aren't torn, that doesn't mean the cv isn't still bad. It's just a for-sure indication.

I've replaced axles in older accords (5th gens) before; it wasn't too tough. I would imagine the process is similar. Getting the axle nut off is probably going to be your most difficult challenge. It requires a huge socket and a lot of torque.

What is your car is not very good, these are not important, those who can not afford the car how to do it? To say to you I do not know very much about this area, you can go to ask the garage area, they should be able to help you.

You sound judgment is correct, but still to be tested in order to know the specific
