Replacing a half shaft

The CV boot on my 01' Aurora split and greased up my wheel well nicely. Now I have a 'clicking' noise from the drivers side half shaft. I have a new part and intend to swap it out myself. I'm not very good at navigating this website and am wondering if there are instructions for this replacement here? I'm much better at putzing with cars than I am at putzing with computers.

Five thousand years ago (around 1970) I got my degree in computer science...and now I have to ask my 12 year old grand-daughter to show me how my damn smart phone works. Any direction here will be greatly appreciated.

They had Computer Science degrees back in 1970?

Btw, many of the Mechanical Engineers (just single degree, not even a dual degree) that graduate today are very good at doing embedded programming, using a real time OS, using an Arduino, using a Beagle Bone, Super Loop for an OS, etc.
And, good.

Btw, for others:


The first computer science degree program in the United States was formed at Purdue University in 1962. Since practical computers became available, many applications of computing have become distinct areas of study in their own rights.

Wow, learn something new every day. :-)
