Question about 1998 Nissan Maxima
What's the best way to remove the long axle. If the caris in neutral would that make it easier.
It odes not matter if the car is in gear or neutral. The r/h side axle is kind of a pain to remove. You will need a long extention and 12mm swiwle end socket and a ratchet. You need to remove the 3 bolts on the side of the support bearing to get the axle out of the support bearing bracket. Those bolts are a pain in the *** to get to. You have to be looking at then from underneith the transmission. Remove those bolts. Then you will need a big punch an a hammer to spin the bearing in the support to free it up enough to get it out. This is not really a job, that you want to be laying on your back doing it and its not exactly a job for a person, that doesn't work on cars or is machanically inclined. Anyhow, good luck and let me know how you made out.
