It will come out. You can either try to use a slide hammer to bang it out or try to pry it backwards. They are designed to lock in so they can't slide out while driving. Just keep pulling on it. It will eventually come out. I am normally a lot more detailed and careful and try not to use a lot of force but sometimes. You just have to get a BIGGER hammer. Ha. Hope this helps.

It is held in by an internal snap ring, you must exert a straight out fast snapping motion to release the snap ring, a large wrench works well or a pipe wrench. You must snap it straight out, not at an angle.

How do I remove the cv axle in a ford telstar 1993 - both sides


Line the outer up in the right place and enter it until the circlip is against the splines . Use a large heavy hammer and rap the end of the shaft hard and the circlip will pop in the groove and allow the shaft to go home.. Removal from the shaft is much the same as it has a circlip inside the transmission. So remove the shaft from the wheel. Use a hammer to hit the cv joint so that it jumps the shaft out of the transmission .

How to replace cv axles


As with most CV axles, the complete suspension assembly must liberate the spline of the cv. The axle may come out at this time if it is not held by six screws at the transmission. These are easily removed if necessary and reinstall is actually easier (due to familiarity).

How do you remove a front axle


Hello
Welcome!
  • The replacement of the CV axle is much easier with the vehicle lifted on a suspension lift. With the minivan in neutral and the steering wheel unlocked, removal of the front tire and then caliper assembly will be required. Remove the entire caliper assembly with pads intact to save a step. Be sure to support the caliper assembly to the coil spring so it does not incur damage to the rubber brake hose.

    The disconnection of the lower ball joint and outer tie rod end will also be required to allow free movement of the steering knuckle. For Caravans that employ speed sensors, remove the wire harness from the knuckle connection as well.

    Remove the cotter pin and castle-headed nut lock from the CV spindle. Next, remove the spring washer and the hub nut. This will require a large socket and breaker bar or a pneumatic gun. To separate the CV axle spindle from the steering knuckle, thread the hub nut back onto the spindle so it's exposing a few threads at the top. Tap on the nut with a large rubber mallet until the splines of the spindle separate from the adjoining knuckle.

    At this point, it's wise to place a drain bucket beneath the transaxle side of the CV joint connection to catch trickling transaxle fluid that will leak out once the connection of the axle to transmission is separated.

    Because the tie rod end and ball joint connections have been separated, you'll be able to manipulate the knuckle from the CV axle spindle. This requires determination and having an assistant would be helpful.

    Once the outer spindle connection of the CV axle is free from the knuckle, you'll need a large pry bar to disengage the inner tri-pot joint out of the transaxle and remove the CV axle from the transmission. This is where some fluid will leak into the drain bucket.
  • To install the new axle, start with the inner connection to the transaxle so that the inner joint circlip seats in the transaxle side gear. An audible click of the circlip should be heard and then test the connection by trying to pull out on the axle by hand. There will be a little free-play in the axle, but if the circlip is seated, you will not be able to disconnect the axle without the aide of the pry bar.

    Next, align the splines of the outer CV axle spindle to the grooves in the steering knuckle. Do not force this connection. Rotate the axle by hand until the splines align properly to the groove. Reconnect the remaining components by reversing the procedure.

    Be sure to torque the hub nut, outer tie rod end nut and ball joint retaining nut to the proper torque specifications of your specific year Caravan. Since the Caravan has been around for quite a while and has employed different engine sizes, there may be a slight variance in the torque specs. A quality repair manual for the specific year and design of your Caravan will display the correct torque specs.

    Last, replace the wheel and then check and adjust the level of the transaxle fluid. Although only a little may have trickled out by the disconnection, the fluid should be topped off to capacity.

    Need help removing right side cv axle on 94 toyota


    Assuming you have the spindle off - you need a pry bar between the inner mount and the transaxle. Give it a bit of a snap as it is held in with a lock ring around the spline. Note the gap - when replacing it - pop it in fairly well till you feel the snap ring lock back into position. If you are replacing it - inspect the new one - the lock ring should already be installed.

    How do I replace a CV axle for a 1992 ford taurus


    It's easier to put in a rebuilt axle. The steps are as follows
    1. Remove the brake caliper, pads, and rotor.
    2. Remove the axle nut.
    3. Remove the lower ball joint retaining bolt and separate the ball joint from the steering knuckle.
    4. Push the splined axle out of the knuckle.
    5. Then, use a pry bar to pop the axle shaft out of the transmission. Insert the new axle shaft and give it a tap with a hammer to pop the "C" clip into position.
    6. Then reverse the procedure.

    Make sure you only do one side at a time. If you pull both axles, the side gears in the transmission can slip out of place, causing a real headache.

    Removing the right intermediate axle shaft


    i can only guess it is a 3.0l 4v well as far as the axle goes, the rh outer half shaft seperates at the splines on the intermediate shaft.
    the intermediate shaft is the solid shaft from the trans to a bearing support bracket and ends after that. it is externally splined.
    the rh axleshaft , inner cv joint, is internally splined.
    to remove the rh axleshaft, remove the rh wheel and splash shield.
    removed the lower balljoint pichbolt and seperate the lower balljoint front the steering knuckle. take the axle nut off and using a large brass drift or hardwood, drive the axle out of the bearing-hub assembly. DO NOT DAMAGE THE THREADS. also use some lubricant on the axle nut dissasembly. after the outer axle end is free, using the same brass drift or other, hit the inner cv joint and drive it off the intermediate shaft. inspect the splines closely because these fail and cause a no-drive condition.
    then the mounint bolts for the support bearing and pull the intermedate shaft out, you will loose some fluid.

    CV JOINT


    Remove the brake caliper and then remove the brake rotor, remove the large axle nut on the end, undo the lower bolt from the strut/spring assy and swing the assy out of the way as you pull the splined axle out of the the brake rotor hub, once the axle is free with a swift **** pull the axle from the transmission, it will most likely be a bitc.. to get out of the trans, but keep jerking until the internal snap-ring releases.
