Question about 1996 Kia Sephia

1 Answer

We have been trying for a week now to take out the drive axle on a 96 Kia Sephia. Could not do it, took it to a mechanic out where we live, he tried for 6 hours to get it out and also could not do it. He even removed the passenger side to try to push it out, no go. Something about the drive axle and the transmission with the left cv axle. On a lighter note since he could not do it he only charged us $35 as he felt bad for it being our only transportation.

    We will give this a try. Will still accept any more solutions. I had someone say get a slide hammer and a steel cable and it would come off with no problems, I paid for that answer and came no closer after another 8 hours of getting it off. I will be thankful for any and all solutions to this problem. Thank you as this was our only running vehicle till this problem.

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.
