Does this CV joint need replacing?

Have been hearing a clunk when turning wheels hard especially backing up. I've checked CV joint/axle with no luck. Today doing brakes I found this having out of its spot.

Hi,

Where is that located? I ask because it appears to be a bearing issue and not the actual CV joint.

If I'm correct, this has an intermediate shaft bearing and that is what appears to have failed. I added the directions below for replacing it. Check this first.

Let me know.

Joe
