Default Possible drivaxle problem

I Get this sound when im turning, first it was just sharp corners, but now It's making the sound less sharp corners.

I'v checked the dust cover on the outer drivaxle copling, both look fine, not holes in them, they look Brand new...

Will grease change fix problem?
Or do i need to change coplings?

It's a 1998 camry 2.2 automatic.

If noisy, grease is not going to help.

Need to replace outer CV joint. Bad joint is typically on the opposite side of direction of turn. Since CV joints are typically not sold need to replace complete axle.

A friend of me said,

Se Picture: tap with a rubber hammer, and it will come of... If the car is old and full of corrosion, it may difficult to remove it.

When i change it, i can take some photos and post it.

On some Toyota cars this is possible but not sure on Camry.

Consider the following procedure in the video below which may work better then hammering:


Please post back with photos!
