How do I remove the passenger side half-shaft from a 2003 tiburon with a 2.7 v6 and automatic transmission? The inner shaft goes into a small square housing and then a shorter shaft goes from there to the trans axle. Does it disconnect from the first housing or from the trans axle? Is it held in by a c-clip like some GM vehicles, where you give it a good pry with a bar? Thanks in advance.
Unfortunately I dont have a solution for you. I highly doubt that the car will be similar to a GM vehicle but its always possible I guess. I would go to your local Hyundai dealer and ask one of the technicians or contact Hyundai directly if they have any way to assist you I'm sure they will. They also have all the schematics available for the vehicle when you sign up with them. Also, alldata.com is usually a reliable source as well. You'll find many service departments utilize it.

The transmission is transversely mounted in these vehicles. The mount that secures the transmission to the body is also supporting the engine. If you want to remove the transmission without also removing the engine you will have to support the engine once you remove the transmission mount. You will need to remove the drivers side wheel, caliper, and rotor. You then need to remove the drivers side CV shaft. You will need to separate the lower ball joint in order to remove the shaft and to provide working room to separate the transmission from the engine. You need to disconnect the Shift cable (automatic) or slave cylinder (manual) from the transmission. You must separate the passengers side CV shaft from the transmission, but you do not need to full y remove it. Ensure that you do not separate the inner CV joint when pulling the transmission free from the inner splines. Remove the flywheel shield plate. If automatic transmission, unbolt the torque converter from the flywheel. Disconnect any electrical connections from the transmission. If automatic transmission, disconnect the hydraulic lines running to the radiator. Unbolt the transmission from the engine at the bell housing. Automatic transmissions will come out fairly easy...manuals you must pull back to disengage the transmission splines from the clutch disc.
The passenger side has a inner and outer shaft and you would remove the axle nut and shaft from spindle then the center bracket and bearing (two bolts against engine block), sliding out the axle assembling at that point, or jerking it out, careful not to pull on the cv axle end but rather the jack, or inner, shaft. After removal, separate the middle by hanging upside down and taking a hammer to it, striking the inner shaft while turning around. Dont hit the dust shield or seals. Install in reverse order. Quick tip: you may get around removing ball joint by only removing both strut bolts, and possibly tie rod end bolt.
YOU NEED A PULLER ON THE OUTSIDE WHEEL HUB PUSHING THE HALF SHAFT FROM THE FRONT HUB,THEN TAP THE SHAFT UNION AT THE JOINT CASE WITH A PLASTIC HAMMER TO REMOVE THE HALFSHAFT AND INNER SHAFT FROM THE TRANSAXLE. IF YOU HAVE AN INNER SHAFT REMOVE THE HALFSHAFT BY SETTING UP A PULLER ON THE OUTSIDE WHEEL HUB AND PRESSING THE HALFSHAFT FROM THE FRONT HUB. AFTER PRESSING THE OUTER SHAFT INSERT A PRYBAR BETWEEN THE TRANSAXLE CASE AND THE HALFSHAFT AND PRY THE HALF SHAFT FROM THE TRANSAXLE DONT PULL ON THE SHAFT.
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
the procedure to remove them is here As for the seal you should be able to pry the old one out once you have removed the half shaft with a screwdriver or ask at your local parts store if they can rent/sell you a seal removal tool hope this helps!
if you have a 4 cylinder you wiggle the clutch shaft up and down remove the lever and this will get the fingers off the releasbearing / 2 starter bolts 2 large bolts up top 3 under exhaust and 4 0n the other side lower one is above right inner cv axle, remove left axle from car right axle can moved over un do ball joint 3 mounts remover upper side and reaar , strap engine to a cradle or 4,4 post chained to support engine you can slide tranmission over14 inches with room to stick your hands in and remove pressure plate ,fly wheel can be removed but takes good hands tricky,now thats a hyundai flat rate tech procedure for 4 cyl, IF YOUR NOT SURE ABOUT or if the engine is V6 cylinder THE SUB FRAME COMES OUT you can remove rack hose on sub frame and 4 bolts and wire or strap the steering rack to body at that can stay in car or you will have to take rack out with sub frame
