Question about 1994 Chevrolet Cavalier

94 chevy cavalier drive axle

You responded to me question about getting the drive axle off of the tranny by using a prybar and that worked, thank you.

new question, now that i am looking at this before i put in the new drive axle, since I disconnected the ball joint in order to get things in and out, how and I going to get the ball joint connected back to the support arm, the tension seems like it is going to be to much for me to press it down far enough in order to connect it back to the support arm? any trick on this, should i loosen something else up or do I just have to muscle it back on?

Just a prybar that looks like a big bent flat screwdriver the axles just pop out when you have everything else disconected try not putting any holes in the oilpan watch what your prying on and it shouldnt take much than a rap with your hand on the prybar once it's ready to pop out.

1993 Ford Festiva GL cv axle broke off in tranny. Need advice on how to remove safely without damaging tranny.


Use a prybar to separate the halfshaft from the transaxle. Is the inner cv joint still attached, so you can pry against it?

How do you remove axle shafts from transaxle on a 99 chevy cavalier is there a clip that needs removed first?


Put a prybar between the shaft and the transmission and try to pop it out, it has a circlip holding it in. You don't remove the clip, it compresses when the shaft pops out.

96 CHEVY CAVALIER. R&R DRIVE AXLE SHAFTS. AUTO TRANS.


If your looking to replace them, wich is what most do today, it is cheaper to purchase a axle with new cv joints than to rebuild them. It is a very simple job in todays cars, remove tires remove lower tie rod , remove nut in center of the rotor and pull wheel assembley to the side hanging from the strut, pull axle out replace the transmission seal, push new axle in. When putting wheel assembley on, use a hydraulic jack on bottom of the rotor to push it to the axle splines and put the new nut on .

Replacement procedure for drive axle 94 chevy cavalier


1. Remove tire
2. Remove axle nut. (this is a large nut, maybe 19mm or even bigger. these can be tough to get off sometimes without an air gun.)
3. Remove cotter pin and nut from the lower ball joint.
4. You can first try hitting the side of the ball joint with a hammer and if it doesn't pop it loose you will have to use a Pickle fork. If you have to use a pickle fork and the ball joint is old it may get damaged so you may want to replace that while your at it.
5. If necessary use a hammer to tap on the axle to push it out of the hub assembly. Once it is out of there you can give it a tug and see if it will come out without a fight from the transmission. If it doesn't come right away you can get under there with a large screw driver and pry it out.
6. Install new axle carefully into the transmission and make sure you push it all the way in, than just do the above steps in reverse order and your set. Good luck!

Axle replacement


There is a clip on the inner axle spline that holds it in the tranny, the best way is to remove the tire,axle nut, and lower ball joint. The outer should come free when you push the knuckle foreward or backward. then you need 2 big screwdrivers or prybars and put them between the tranny and axle, one on each side and push equally. it is tight but will come out. Thanks
