Question about 1995 Geo Metro

1 Answer

CV Axle removal and installation

A friend recently replaced my Drivers side CV axle on my 95 Geo Metro, manual trans, 3 cyl, 1.0L. During the process he somehow tore the output axle seal and it started leaking tranny fluid all over the place. $183.00 later I had that problem fixed but now they told me the boot on the passenger side is torn. I got another axle but how do we safely remove and install the new one without tearing that output axle seal? Where is the output axle seal and is there a tool that will make removal of the halfshaft easier so we don't tear anything up it was really difficult to remove?

The axle should be able to be removed by using a flat ended pry bar tool with a dull flat end. Or possibly a very large flat screw driver. Put the pry bar between the axle and transmission. With light pressure, the axle should pop out of the transmission. The axle just snaps into the transmission. There should be no need or cause to damage the seal because the seal is inset into the transmission. Just watch what you are doing. As far as replacing the seal, I do not know. I have not had to do that yet, and I have replaced both sides with new boots more than once.

Cv joint popping out right front

The CV Joint would have to come out, take the boot out. The cv joing is probably coming out of the end. There is like a washer that holds it in place and is possible that is out of place.
I hope this helps!

99 geo metro automatic transmission grinds when put into gear,it happened with no warning of a malfuction,what happened?

CV Joints can break internally and cause the sound similar to trans problems.

You will either need a new axle/CV Joint, or to probably replace/rebuild the Transaxle completely.

You may be able to tell more from underneath with someone turning the wheel as you watch the CV Joint housing to make sure it's moving at the same time on both ends. If one end of the shaft moves, the other should move equally, not just the axle shaft, the ends that go into the trans and through the front wheels!

Good luck!

How do i replace the front axle assembly on my 1992 honda accord?

loosen the axle nut and then put the car on jack stands. take the tire off and then you have to remove the brake caliper, pop the lower link and tie rod loose. if you have a friend you can loosen the strut mount bolts and hold it to the side when you pull the axle. you can hammer the axle out of the wheel side but you will need a large pry bar or large flat head to pop the inner cv hub out. there is a retainer ring on the axle that keeps it popped in the trans. it will take some force to pop it out and sometimes there is indents on the cv to aid in the removal. be careful when prying against the trans. good luck

My front differential is leaking!

I cannot see it, but I am guessing that you need to replace your axle seal. To do this,you have to pull your CV shaft out. Remove the tire, remove the caliper from the top of the rotor. Using a hammer on the back, remove the rotor. Take off the spindle (axle) nut, separate the axle (CV shaft) from the hub. Replace seal. It should pop right out. Good luck!

Seperate outer cv from axel 99 chevy metro

First, did you check the price difference on a complete axle (saves time and aggravation of doing joint & boot) Most times you can get them apart by just putting the axle in a vise and giving the joint a good smack with a hammer. There is a small clip in the end that you can spread, but you have to look carefully to find it. Most people have a hard time getting the boot to stay on and find it has come off a few weeks after they installed it.
That's why I suggest replacing the entire axle which if far cheaper than they used to be!!!

Replacing my CV Axles

Hi, your axles on the metro are actually called half shafts, any larger name parts house can order them for you. Call them with the Make, Year, and Model and they will take care of you. you will need to tell them,drivers side or passengers side. Hope this helps!
