trying to replace axil


IF THIS IS FRONT WHEEL DRIVE YOU HAVE A CV SHAFT AXLE AND THESE CAN BE QUITE A JOB. YOU SHOULD HAVE AN INNER AND OUTER CV JOINT IT WILL BE CHEAPER TO REPLACE THE WHOLE SHAFT.
YOU WILL HAVE TO JACK AND SUPPORT THE FRONT OF THE CAR WITH OUT GETTING ANYTHING IN THE WAY OF THE AXLE YOU ARE TRYING TO REPLACE. 1) REMOVE THE WHEEL 2) REMOVE THE NUT THAT HOLDS THE AXLE IN THE SPINDLE. 3) REMOVE THE CALIBERS AND PAD FROM THE ROTOR 4)REMOVE THE ROTOR 5) REMOVE THE TORTION BAR END BUSHINGS AND LOWER BALL JOINT. WITH A SOFT HAMMER DRIVE THE AXLE SHAFT END FROM THE SPINDLE WHILE YOU PULL THE STRUTT AWAY FROM THE CAR . THE AXLE END SHOULD SLIDE OUT OF THE SPINDLE AND THAT END SHOULD FALL TO THE GROUND. WITH A LONG PRY BAR YOU WILL HAVE TO PRY THE OTHER END OUT OF THE TRANS/AXLE HOUSING. TO REPLACE THE AXLE SHAFT JUST REVERSE THESE DIRECTIONS. YOU MAY WANT TO CHECK THE SPINDLE BEARINGS FOR PLAY OF ANY KIND. THERE IS NOTHING WORST THEN HAVING TO DO THIS TWICE. IT'S NOT TO BAD OF A JOB BUT CAN BE TIME CONSUEMING IF YOU HAVE NEVER DONE THIS BEFORE. HOPE THIS HELPS
