Question about 2002 Pontiac Sunfire
Replaced drivers front axle shaft and the new one keeps slipping out. The parts store says they have given us the right shaft but it looks shorter than the old one. Are there different shafts for these or is there something else to look for. ****** is fine. The old shaft was starting to make noise so decided to change it.

It has been my experience that a small amount lateral and axial play is usually acceptable because the splines aren't normally press fit but held in with a spring clip. Some models are secured with a roll pin through the axle. I don't have any first hand experience with the Sunfire/Cavilier though. Is there any fluid leaking past the seals at that location?
The output bearings will usually require the transmission to be pulled. If you are capable, pull the CV shafts and see if the play is in the transmission output or in the splines. Note that some vehicles have special procedures for removing the CV shafts because they support internal parts of the transmission, so get your hands on a Chiltons or Haynes manual first for the proper procedure.

Had the same problem. PONTIAC has issued a TSB that dealer know about. The Engine is MIS-ALIGNED and needs add'l rods to be installed to fix this problem. This will be done AT YOUR EXPENSE. I found this out the hard way.
Best of Luck
