Its just held in place with a snap-ring on the end. Use a pry bar and try to pry it out, if not successful use a Big long flat screw driver or a long extension bar and a hammer and tap axle out from tranny. It would come right out but you should have a pan to cat transmission fluid some will come out. (rember to refill tranny) Good Luck contact if you need more help.

Loosen, but do not remove, the halfshaft nut while the vehicle is on the floor with brakes applied. Raise and safely support the vehicle. Remove the wheel. Remove the brake caliper assembly and support it from the strut coil with a piece of strong wire. Remove the brake rotor. Remove the halfshaft nut and washer. Using the proper tool disconnect the tie-rod end from the steering knuckle. If equipped with abs, remove the speed sensor cable routing bracket. If you need to, disconnect the sway bar link from the damper fork. Remove the damper fork lower through-bolts and upper pinch bolt. Remove the damper fork assembly. Using the proper tool disconnect the steering knuckle from lower control arm. Remove end of halfshaft from steering knuckle, sometimes you have to a puller to it loosened.

At the other end/inboard, use a pry bar of some kind between tripod joint and transaxle, pry the joint from transaxle, be careful. when you go back with new halfshaft be sure to use proper torque specs. I copied this info from my database. I don't know tool sizes, here is where you need a basic set of tools, wrenches and sockets, standard and metric, if your going to work on your own vehicle.

How to disassemble a cv joint


FSM
Remove the halfshaft from the vehicle and secure in a vice equipped with jaw covers.
During joint service, reference marks should be placed on the joint housing, halfshaft and joint spider to ensure that all components are installed in the same position from which they were removed. If this precaution is not observed, uneven or premature component wear may result.
  1. Remove the large differential boot clamp by drawing the clamp hooks together using tool J-35566 or equivalent.
  2. Remove the small differential-side boot clamp. Slide the differential-side boot toward the center of the halfshaft. Place a reference mark on the differential-side joint housing and halfshaft.
  3. Remove the differential joint housing from the Tripod joint spider. Place an index mark on the Tripod joint spider and halfshaft.
  4. Remove the snap-ring and Tripod joint spider from the halfshaft.
  5. Remove the differential-side boot from the halfshaft.
  6. Remove the boot clamp from the wheel-side boot.
  7. Remove the small clamp from the wheel-side boot.
  8. Remove the wheel-side boot from the halfshaft. Place a reference mark on the wheel-side joint and the halfshaft.
  9. Remove the wheel-side joint from the halfshaft by expanding the snap-ring.


Do not disassemble the wheel-side joint. If any abnormality is found in the joint, replace it. Do not disassemble the Tripod joint spider. If any abnormality is found in the spider, replace it as an assembly. Do not wash CV-joint boots or spider in solvent. Clean the spider assembly and boots with a clean, dry, solvent-free rag.


best it to buy the FSm book and see photos.

My 1999 Dodge Grand Caravan Sport is having issues. Recently, it has started shaking when accelerating, slowing to a crawl when in drive


if it happens only at this time and not just holding a steady speed or not accelerating you could have a problem with cv joint which is located on the halfshaft/drive axle.it will have to be checked out at a shop to try to narrow down which side is causing this.if it is a cv joint replace the halfshaft not just the joint.it could also be a possible transmission problem like a lock up torqur convertor.if it was a bad belt in a tire then you would feel it at other driving speeds as well.

How do you remove the cv joint on the left side from the transmission?


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.

What do i need to take apart to remove the drivers side front drive axel to replace the universal joint at the hub? could the axel slide threw the hole for the axel berring assembly or do you need to take...


Have not done this on your truck but book says just the upper ball joint needs separated. See procedure below from autozone.com. Please let me know if you have questions.
  1. Remove or disconnect the following:

    Front wheels (left side should be sufficient in your case) Front hub cotter pin, retainer and nut (axle nut)
  2. Using a floor hydraulic jack, support the lower suspension arm.

    Upper ball joint cotter pin and castle nut Knuckle from the front suspension upper arm
  3. Lower the lower suspension arm and steering knuckle slightly to facilitate easier halfshaft removal.
  4. Remove the 2 disc caliper mounting bolts, then lift the front disc caliper off of the front disc brake caliper anchor plate and position aside. Do not allow the caliper to hang by the brake hose; suspend it from the vehicle's frame with strong cord or wire.
  5. Remove the 6 front halfshaft-to-differential bolts.
    WARNING Use care to avoid damaging the hub seal when removing the front halfshaft.

7. Remove the inboard end of the halfshaft from the differential case or extension axle case. Separate the front halfshaft and joints from the hub, then remove the halfshaft and joints from the vehicle.



To install:

  1. Slide the halfshaft outboard end into the hub, making sure that the splines engage.

How to remove cv 1994 pulsar to replace outer d/side boot


  1. Raise the front of the vehicle and support it on jackstands, then remove the wheel and the tire assembly.
  2. Remove the cotter pin from the drive axle.
  3. Have a helper firmly apply the brakes, and loosen the hub nut.
  4. Remove the caliper assembly.

It is not necessary to disconnect the brake hose from the caliper. Position the caliper out of the way and secure with mechanics wire.
  1. Using the removal tool HT72520000 or equivalent, remove the tie rod ball joint from the steering knuckle.
  2. On 1982-86 vehicles, disconnect the ball joint from the lower control arm, by removing the mounting nuts from the bottom of the control arm.
  3. On 1987-90 vehicles, disconnect the ball joint from the steering knuckle, using removal tool HT72520000 or equivalent.
  4. Using a block of wood and a mallet, separate the halfshaft from the hub/steering knuckle assembly. If the assembly is difficult to separate it may be necessary to use a press/puller tool.

In order to protect the halfshaft from damage, it is a good idea when striking the halfshaft, to temporarily install the hub nut.
  1. Drain the lubricant from the transaxle.
  2. Support the engine properly and remove support bracket if so equipped.
  3. Remove the halfshaft from the right side on automatic transaxle equipped vehicles and on all manual transaxles as follows:
    1. Insert a suitable prybar between the inner CV-joint and the transaxle.
    2. Carefully pry the halfshaft from the transaxle.


When removing the driveshaft from the transaxle, do not pull on the driveshaft. The driveshaft will separate at the sliding joint (damaging the boot).
  1. Remove the left side halfshaft on automatic transaxles as follows:
    1. Remove the right side halfshaft as outlined above.
    2. Insert a slotted screwdriver, from the right side of the transaxle.


Make certain that the screwdriver is properly aligned into the slot in the halfshaft.
  1. Tap the screwdriver with a mallet to remove the left side halfshaft from the transaxle.

  1. Pull the hub/steering knuckle assembly away from the vehicle and remove the halfshaft from the transaxle.

After removing the halfshaft from the transaxle, be sure to install a holding tool to hold the side gear in place while the axle is removed.
To install:
  1. Always use a new circlip on the driveshaft and install a new oil seal to the transaxle.
  2. Install the halfshaft into the transaxle.

When installing the driveshaft into the transaxle, use oil seal protector tool KV38105500 or equivalent to protect the oil seal from damage; after installation, remove the tool.
  1. Align the halfshaft with the hub/knuckle assembly and connect the lower control arm-to-ball joint.
  2. On 1982-86 vehicles, connect the lower control arm to the ball joint and tighten the control arm-to-ball joint nuts to 40-47 ft. lbs. (54-64 Nm).
  3. On 1987-90 vehicles, connect the lower ball joint to the steering knuckle and tighten the stud nut to 43-54 ft. lbs. (59-74 Nm).
  4. Connect the tie rod to the steering knuckle and torque the tie rod stud nut to 22-36 ft. lbs. (30-49 Nm).
  5. Install then hub nut and tighten to 87-145 ft. lbs. (118-197 Nm).
  6. Install new cotter pin in drive axle and mount the caliper assembly.
  7. Install the wheel and tire assembly.
  8. Road test for proper operation.
