On most axels there is a lock ring on the transaxle end, if not all the way in axel could leak tranny fluid.check to see if the axel is all the way in the tranny. or maybe it needs a new one.

Do you have to remove the snap ring on 1994 saturn sl 2 to get axel out


The left axle is a little tricky I use a crow bar and tuck the curved end in behind the cup of the axle then look for a good sturdy position on the transmission and do a quick snap on the crowbar and the axle pops out. Be ready with an oil pan if you did not drain the transmission oil as it will come out. Also Saturn transmissions get serviced with dexron III even the manual transmissions. When reinstalling the new axle place the transmission end in first and get the snap ring to hold before re-assembling the rest of it. Is best to insert the end of the axle into the transmission, then hold the axle straight while pushing inward on the axle until you feel the cv joint bottom out inside the cup then with a dead blow hammer, strike the outer end of the cv joint and you should be able to feel the inner snap into place. To make sure that it is reach in and grab the inner axle you should not be able to pull it back out by hand. If you try to hammer on the inner cv joint during installation you take the chance of damaging the boot. And causing premature failure of the inner axle cv joint. Hope this helps.

The best thing to do is check double check it yourself. Run the car up to normal operating temp first. Pull the transmission dipstick, with the car running, and look at the fluid. Check the level while you are at it. The fluid should look pinkish and should smell like oil. If it is more brown than pink or smells burnt then it should be changed. It doesn't need to be flushed.
GM recommends changing it every 100,000 miles except under hard driving, so if you chang3d it a couple years ago you should be alright unless you notice something wrong when you checvk it yourself. ope this helps.

1996 Toyota Camry LE. Took it to the shop to have the CV joints replaced, both of them. Mechanics are unable to get either side axles out of the transmission. They have tried using heat, impact hammer,...


There is a small "circlip"holding the axle in place. Place a pry bar between the cv joint and the transmission and pry the axle out with a sharp snapping movement. This should pop the axle loose from the "circlip". The steering wheel can be turned to gain more working room. Tell those guys to lay off the heat. Hopefully no damage was done and they will be able to get the new axles in without too much trouble. Merry Christmas.

Leaking Axle


IThis car im not sure if it is front wheel drive or not. Assume it is then it could get expensive. If it is just rear wheel drive then its just packing bearings with grease, no big deal.

I have taken everything apart on the right side but can't get the axle to come out of the tranny. What is the best way to get it to come loose. 2001 Kia Sephia with auto trans, right side. thanks


Sometimes these axles are tough to remove, sometimes you may have to tap the outside of the axle with either a brass hammer or rubber mallet (as not to damage the outer part of the axle) adthen try and pull out the axle shaft. You may also have to try pry bar behind the axle shaft (where it goes into the transmission) and slightly pry out away from the transmission to release the ring lip that holds it in place inside the transmission. Hope this helps.

Transmission fliud


To check the trans fluid you have to have car on a lift or over a pit (like at oil change place) so it is level.

On the lower pass. side of trans. right near the rt. front drive axle there is a small plug (takes 7/16" wrench) Pull plug and fuild should run out W/ engine hot and running.

If you need to add there is a red cap on the driver side top of the trans right at the back of the engine. Unscrew cap and fill thru small hole.
