Remove the tire, rotor... take the tie rod out... ( may be in the way ) from this point you should be able to take loose the axle, once the outer end is loosened the rest of it should pull straight out. in replacing it... just follow the stteps in reverse.

1994 geo prizm replaced drive axle and wheel bearings and it sounds like the drver side axle is binding or broken or not in all the way it makes a loud knocking from the driverside like the axle is hitting...


I see there are two different axles listed, with and without abs. One is slightly longer than the other. You could have the wrong axle or it could be something inside the transmission. I doubt the passenger side axle would affect the driver side.
Can you raise the front end and make the noise with the car parked ?

Need to remove rear axle to replace tire studs


You don't need to remove the axle. Remove the rotor or drum. pound out the broken studs with a hammer. Install the new stud into the hole. Use a wheel nut and some washers to pull the new stud into place. They also make a stud installer tool which makes it a little easier.

I have a 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee with a 5.2. I am experiencing problems with the 4x4. The front Drive-shaft spins however its not making the front tires turn. What could cause this?


If the driveshaft is turning then you need to check both axles to see if they turn. If you see that an axle is turning but the wheel is not, you have a broken "u" joint or c/v joint (I think either was available on that year.) If neither axle is turning then likely you have broken some gears inside the differential. To verify that remove the cover on the diff and look. Broken gears are obvious and you do not need to be too experienced to see the damage. Gear damage is expensive to repair and you cannot do that work yourself. You can replace an axle or the entire differential, end to end. Instructions can be found for axle and complete diff replacement in both chiltons or haynes manuals. Or you can try it without instructions ans ask me if you need help with any part of the job.

Cant figure out how to get the front driverside axle out of my 05 dodgeram


Remove the hub if the axle nut is loose. Look at the inside of the spindle, you'll see three bolt heads. They hold the hub and bearing in place. Once you remove them, the hub and bearing will come out giving you enough clearance to pull the axle out through the hole.

How do I remove the driver-side inner axle shaft


its retaind with a roll type snap ring. you need to POP it out. being carful not to damage it seal, pry with a good jolt between the trans and cv cup, or take a pry bar or pipe and jab at it like your stabbing it lol. dont use a hammer or go crazy but it takes a good wallop to release. then slide it out, to install, trun till it drops in and POP it in by hand with the slop in the cv joints.good luck!

Hyundai 2005 Elantra cv boot replacement instructions.


There are no instructions available except with the purchase of SOME boot kits. Depending on the CV joint design, you may not be able to remove the joint from the axle. However, most Hyundai CV joints can be removed from the axle by using a drift and a 2 pound hammer to knock the joint off the axle. Once you've done this, it's a simple matter of removing the old boot and installing the new one w/fresh grease and tension bands. Otherwise, you have to remove the DOJ from the other end of the axle and replace the boot that way.

REAR AXLE SEAL LEAKING ONTO BRAKE SHOES NEED INSTRUCTIONS ON HOW TO FIX


Jack up vehicle and support on stands. Remove wheels. Remove differential cover . Locate and remove lock pin that holds cross shaft in. Slide cross shaft out. Push axle inward to release axle c clip. Remove axle and pry out old seal. Install new seal with proper tool.Add some lube to the seal lip to aid axle intallation. Revese removal procedure. This is for a "c" type axle.
Another type has 4 nuts attaching a retainer plate to the backing plate behind the axle flange. In this case the 4 nuts are removed and the axle will come out. This may require a little effort. I think that you have a "c" type axle in your vehicle. Hope this helps. Moe
