Question about Cars & Trucks
I fought with my car for the last two days....tried all kinds of stuff to pop out the axle from the trans-axle but the little clip just would not let go.
Since the strut and brake are in the way and by this time you already pretty well have the strut off anyway .... take off the 3 bolts on the top and lay it on the floor, out of the way. I hung the brake with a small piece of chain through the Strut hole. Don't leave it hang by the brake hose.
Way better for working on!
My buddy came over and suggested hooking up a strap (like a ratcheting type strap). We put a slip knot in it and was able to get right in beside the seal on the trans-axle....tied the other end to a sledge hammer (tie a half decent knot). We left enough slack to get a good swing at it. Took 4 swings and it just popped out.
For the price of it always change the seal.
Popped out the seal with a claw hammer. Put in the new seal with a large socket (remember to oil the seal and shaft). Had the new CV joint back in within ten minutes or so. Ready to bolt back together.
It is hard to believe how much the Garages used to charge for this when Front-Wheel-Drive first come out. It really isn't that hard to do.

Yes, there is a circlip on the shaft, which fits in a groove inside the transaxle. It just fits tight enough that it can be pried, or actually popped out of the groove. Put a prying bar between the CV joint housing and the transaxle case, and just try to " pop" the axle out and loose. It should move out about a half inch, then you can grab hold and slide it out easily.
