How to remove a cv axle from transmission

The inner joint (the one in the transmission) has a retaining clip which makes it a little difficult to remove the axle. The easiest way to get it out is to place a pry bar in between the inner cv joint and the transmission.

how to replace axels and cv joints


The most cost effective way to service these axles and C.V. joints is with a remanufactured drive axle.
The lower ball joints will need to be separated at the steering knuckle, the axle nut removed with an air impact wrench. Then the drive axles are popped out of the transmission with a large pry bar. Only a retaining clip holds the axle into the transmission. Good luck

Axle will not come out of the axle housing


I quote from service manual

1 . Raise and support the truck. Remove the rear wheels, the brake drum or brake caliper and rotor. If this is a disc brake, support caliper with wire. Remove seal retainer nuts from axle
housing.

2 . Pull out the axle shaft from housing. Remove the snap ring and bearing race from the axle shaft. Cut the bearing retainer. Break the bearing cage using a hammer and chisel and remove cage and rollers.

3 . Remove the oil seal, the seal retainer and the parking brake assembly (rear). Using a hydraulic press and bearing splitter, press the inner race from axle shaft. Inspect axle shaft for seal wear. Ensure that the shaft is not bent.

Don't forget to transfer any axle seals, ABS rings, or other parts to the replacement axles. ccr20051001cv_s09.jpg
Guide the replacement axle into place. Depending on the type of retainer, the axle should click firmly in place. ccr20051001cv_s10.jpg
Always use the proper torque on the axle bolts. Check axle rotation. Reassemble dismantled components.
