They are called half shafts or CV axles and are between the front wheels and the engine.

    OK, first, try to get the book for it (I use Haynes manuals myself, but there are others out there)
    it will take a few ( or alot) of fairly expensive tools (in that you may only use them this one time) but you can rent some or borrow of them (EG the spindle nut socket can run $40-50 USD alone) while I have not pulled the axle for a sorento before, it would usually take a set of internal 12 point wrenches, a spindle (or axle nut socket) nut socket (probably 30-32 mm to give you an idea of what you would be in for, try going to a front-end shop and have a mechanic show you what has to be taken off and put back on, then see if you want to try it.

A drive shaft, driveshaft, driving shaft, propeller shaft, or Cardan shaft is a mechanical component for transmitting torque and rotation, usually used to connect other components of a drive train that cannot be connected directly because of distance or the need to allow for relative movement between them.
Drive shafts are carriers of torque: they are subject to torsion and shear stress, equivalent to the difference between the input torque and the load. They must therefore be strong enough to bear the stress, whilst avoiding too much additional weight as that would in turn increase their inertia.
Drive shafts frequently incorporate one or more universal joints or jaw couplings, and sometimes a splined joint or prismatic joint to allow for variations in the alignment and distance between the driving and driven components.

Which of these does your vehicle have ?

Transfer Case - NVG 233-NP1 (Two Speed Selectable)
Transfer Case - NVG 136-NP4(One Speed Automatic)

The New Venture Gear NV233 is an electronic shift transfer, with the following three modes of operation, Two-wheel drive high range, Four-wheel drive high range, Four-wheel drive low range. The gear reduction for low range is provided by a planetary gear set. The floor-mounted shifter has been eliminated. A switch, located on the upper right side of the instrument panel, is used to select the operating range. The indicator lamps on the switch show the current mode of operation. When the four-wheel drive has been selected, the four-wheel drive indicator lamp on the switch is designed to turn on when the front axle has engaged.


Automatic Transfer Case
The single speed automatic transfer case system shifts automatically from rear wheel drive to four wheel drive when the transfer case shift control module (TCSCM) senses the difference in rotation speed of the front propeller shaft and the rear propeller shaft . Two vehicle speed sensors, one located at the rear output shaft area of the transfer case, and the other, located at the front output shaft area of the transfer case, send front and rear propeller shaft rotation speed information to the TCSCM.
When the front and rear output shaft rotations remain the same, the TCSCM sends pulse width modulation signals to the encoder/motor to keep the transfer case in rear wheel drive. When the front and rear output shafts rotations are different, the shift control module sends pulse width modulation signals to the encoder/motor to engage the transfer case into four wheel drive.
The system will automatically transfer a percentage of torque to either the front or rear axles as required to stop all wheel slip. When the front and rear output shafts rotations return to the same speed rotation, the shift control module sends pulse width modulation signals to the encoder/motor to position the transfer case back into rear wheel drive.
When the transfer case is engaged into four wheel drive, a lamp indicator on the instrument cluster will light. The automatic transfer case system is completely automated, no transfer case control button switching system is required.

Where is the prop shaft located?


Your vehicle doesn't have a PROP shaft. Yours has a drive shaft. Prop shafts are normally on 4x4 trucks and refer to front drive shaft. What trouble are you having with the cruise control?

How to locate screw on windows wipers to fix. ..not working


  • Which screws are you looking for? Are you trying to find the pivot ball or the drive shaft to the transmission. If its the transmission shaft that bump at the bottom of the Wiper Arm is a cover over the Nut that holds it to the Drive Shaft which has Splines on it. If it is turning and the Arms are not could be the Splines are compromised.The Transmission is what that long metal frame with the Pivot Balls on it is called. That is located under that Cowl at the Wipers.

Cv boot failure


The best thing to do is completely remove the front drive shaft (assuming you are talking about the front CV boots).
1) Jack up the front end of the vehicle.2) Remove front wheel(s), track rod ends and slacken [don't remove completely just yet] the centre hub nut and remove split pin.3) With the gear in neutral, and using an appropriately sized round punch and hammer, punch out the location pin from the drive shaft where the drive shaft meets the gearbox output shafts.4) With the assistance of a flat screwdriver, lever and pull the drive shafts off the gearbox output shafts and let them drop down. 5) Using a rubber mallet, hammer the drive shaft through the front hub. You kept the nut on the end of the shaft initially so as to prevent damage to the drive shaft threads during hammering. This nut will have to be backed off and eventually removed as the shaft slides through and out of the hub unit.
With the entire shaft removed from the vehicle:
1) Cut off or slacken and remove any rubber boot retaining clips.2) slide the rubber boot(s) towards the centre of the shaft.3) Remove the inner joint first by using a small, flat screwdriver to flick out the retaining wire from the inner lip of the joint. (Keep this wire)4) Slide off inner joint cup and clean.
5) Locate the spring clip from the inner end of the shaft and carefully remove without over-stretching. if you have no replacement.
6) Slide off inner C.V. joint, and clean.
7) Remove damaged boot(s), clean all components, re-grease with LM grease and replace.
8) Reinstallation is the opposite of removal steps.


Note: Take care when re-installing drive shaft to gearbox output shaft. This will usually only align to a single position. Before tapping retaining pin back into place, visually inspect alignment of the shaft's holes. You can use your round punch to help align the holes before re-installation of the retaining pin.


Tip: With the removal of the front drive shafts, it may be a good opportunity to also replace front gearbox output oil seals and front wheel bearing-drive shaft dust seals. These are fairly inexpensive and may prolong the life of components as well as reduce the need for repetitive removal of parts.
