How to remove the left axle on 97 odyssey

I have already removed the right axle. I just popped it out of the transaxle but the left side has an intermediate shaft. Does the left side pop off the intermediate shaft? Or how does the left axle come off?

Yes, the left (driver) side pops off similar to the right side, however, it just pops off of the intermediate shaft instead of the transaxle. for some reason the first time i had tried it, it would not move. later when i tried it again it came off easily. go figure!

How to replace a CV joint on drive side of a 97 Buick Avenue

Do youself a favor and replace the whole halfshaft. Disconnect lower control arm from spindle, remove axle nut move strut spindle outward from bottom, pop axle from transaxle, sometimes it takes a prybar to get it to move. ( be careful of axle seal). Fluid will run out. Compare new halfshaft to old one if ok push into transaxle till fully engaged then re-assemble

Remove right drive shaft

best done on a lift, but there are 2 ways. 1- purchase a slide hammer from any auto parts or harbor freight, and get the cv axle remover adapter to screw on the end. Slide between the axle where it meets the trans and operate the slide hammer. (Assuming you are already with unbolting the wishbone, lower ball joint, etc...) 2- is to wedge a prybar between the axle and transmission to pop it out. The wrong leverage can destroy your transmission.

How to remove a transmission?

Hope this is not your first, if it is you picked a tough one to learn on. Here goes:1 disconnect negative battery cable 2 Raise and support the car, a lift is the best tool for the job here, but you can do this on jackstands, they just need to be tall ones at least 2 feet of clearance under the car. 3 Install engine holding fixture, this supports the back of the engine when you remove the crossmember and trans.4 remove left front wheel, seperate ball joint remove drive axle retaining nut then remove drive axle from transaxle by prying at joint closest to transaxle. Do not pull on the outer joint or you will pull the inner joint apart. 5 place transmission jack under transaxle pan. 6 remove bolts from crossmember then remove the crossmember 7 remove inspection cover then remove three torque converter bolts 8 remove transmission cooling lines from fittings on transmission 9 remove shift cable 10 unplug 4 wire plug from front side of transmission 11 remove 6 bolts from bell housing 12 remove speedometer cable 13 remove three bolts from around right hand drive axle, then pry axle loose from transmission. You do not need to remove axle from car, just let it hang.14 pull transmission away from engine far enough to disengage the alignment dowels and finish pulling right hand drive axle from transmission housing then lower the transmission to the floor 15 pull transmission from under vehicle.

How do I remove the front left Cv Axle?

To remove the driver side cv axle:
place a large flathead screwdriver between the transaxle housing and the axle. Then place a chisel behind the screwdriver. The order will be: transaxle housing, chisel, flat screwdriver, axle.
Then give the chisel a hit or two with a hammer and it should pop out with ease.

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.

  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.

How do i change the drivers side transaxle in a 1994 dodge carava

To change the CV axle, you have to remove the lower ball joint, remove the axle nut, remove from hub, (you can pull the strut out far enough to do this), and the axle will pull out. Install in reverse order. Sounds like you were trying to remove the transmission.
