Tip & How-To about Toyota Corolla
This is for the 93 Toyota Corolla _ however, applies to (nearly) all front wheel drive (all wheel drive) vehicles.
If you bought new drive axles,(or are re-installing drive axles) they may not have given you the right ones (too short) - or, you have not pushed the axle(s) into the transmission all the way. There is a ring that pops into place. You will feel this as it is put into place.
Make sure that you are pushing the drive axle in as far as it will go into the tranny - and when putting the other end in the hub assembly - make sure it is lining up (there should be grooves on the axle that MUST lign up with the grooves on the inner portion of the hub assembly.
After pushing the drive axle into the transmission you should not be able to pull it out by hand at all (without effort).
