Removing left front axle - stuck? Am I missing something?

Everything was disassembled, the axle would not come out of the transmission. I did not see any bolts, so am I missing something. The right axle was replaced recently and it was easy. Help!

Around the inner boot... either inside the boot or around the outside edge should be a circle of bolts... often torq type sockets are required.... by inner boot i mean the one where the axle goes into the transmission.... sometimes you do need a puller for them but be certain you have removed all the bolts. and you shouldn't have to apply much force on the puller... if you do need to then all the bolts have not been removed.

How to remove front left drive axel 2004 cadalic deville


front left is the drivers side. remove the wheel, remove the axle nut, disconnect and separate the ball joint, remove the axle from the spindle then pull the axle out of the transmission, you will loose some transmission fluid.

Automatic transmission removal


Derrick, yes those bolts must be removed in order to separate the transmission from the flywheel. You can turn the motor clockwise from the bolt that holds in the harmonic balancer in the front of the motor. Use a prybar or flywheel tool, if needed, to hold the flywheel stationary while removing the bolts with a wrench. Careful not to damage teeth on flywheel...DW

Hello, I just want to confirm something with someone that has a little knowledge on the subject... The question is: on a 97 k1500/5.7liter 4x4 would you have to remove the transfer case in order to...


The transfer case could be left on the transmission when the trans is removed from the vehicle to be rebuilt. The transfer case would need tobe removed from the trans in order to complete the rebuilding procedure. However, the problem seems to be in the front axle, which has nothing to do removing the transfer case. The 97 uses an actuator on the front axle that is responsible for actually engaging the front axle. This is a really common failure for this part. Outs not that hard to make sure there is power to it, the ground is good, and/or the fuses are good. There is a switch in the transfer case that supplies power to the front axle actuator when the transfer case is placed in 4WD. it wouldn't hurt to make sure that was plugged in as well.

Tri-pot joint housing stuck on driver side of 2000 chrysler 300 m while removing cv joint axle shaft , outer and shaft removed iner tri pod joint stuck to axle shaft on trans. tried prying hammering heat...


I have had this problem many times. I have always had to take the clamp off the drive axle boot near the transmission and take it apart there. I have never been able to get one off that did not pop off easy even after I had the transmission out. You just have to reuse the part that is stuck on the transmission and get a new clamp to re clamp the drive axle together. If you have any more questions feel free to ask and Ill do my best to answer them.

Removal procedure of oil pan for a 1997 chevy


To remove the engine oil pan either the engine has to be lifted all the way off of the motor mounts and the oil pan should just clear the flex-plate and transmission, or the front axle dropped down out of the way, or the transmission and flex-plate will have to be removed.

Usually if the engine can be lifted enough to fit a piece of 2x4 wood between the motor mounts and the frame then the oil pan will usually just have enough clearance to be removed from the rear and the oil pan should just clear the transmission and the flex-plate. Also, be sure to check that the fan blade does not damage the fan shroud when lifting the engine.

Let me know if you require any further assistance.

How do i chage a c/v axle on a hyundai tiburon


Specifically for 2003 Tiburon V6 6 speed, but may work for you as well.
-Loosen tire lugs
-Remove center caps with screw driver or similar tool (careful not to scratch caps)
-loosen axle nut

-Jack the car up and place on jack stands
-Chalk rear wheels
-finish removing tire lug nuts and tire
-remove cotter pin and finish removing axle nut
-remove brake pads
-remove caliper and brake assembly
-remove rotor (possible PITA), use extreme caution hammering a stuck rotor!

IMPORTANT STEP:
*remove 2 bolts from strut mount assembly. This will allow you enough clearance to "cleanly" pull axle out with minimal force/hammering. No axle puller tool necessary and no messing with the lower ball joint.

-Now gently tap the axle out of the hub assembly
-pull the rest of the axle out of the hub assembly by hand or pry with long screw driver or pickle fork. Again, since you removed the 2 strut assembly bolts, your hub assembly should have dropped down and away from the axle quit a bit to allow you enough clearance to remove axle from hub assembly

**Follow next steps for DRIVER SIDE ONLY**
-Next, place a fluid pan to catch any leaking trans fluid before removing axle from transmission side.
-Using a long screwdriver or pickle fork, pry the axle away from the transmission
-Remove entire axle and replace with new one
-Installation is reverse of removal steps. (not difficult, just line up the splines and everything should "pop" in place
