How do you remove the rear axle or hub on a 1990 f700


Remove the nuts holding the axle to the hub. remove the lock washers. Hit the center of the axle with a 10lbs or 20lbs sledge hammer (careful not to hit axle studs) to break it free. Take a small screw driver and work wedged split cones between axle and axle studs out. Then axle can be removed.

How do you change the rear wheel bearings on a 2004 chevy express 1500 van?


Axle Shaft Bearing & Seal Removal & Installation To Remove:
  1. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  2. Remove the axle shaft.
  3. If replacing only the seal, remove the seal using a suitable seal removal tool.
  4. If replacing the seal and bearing on the 8.6 inch axle, install the slide hammer and adapter behind the bearing and pull out the bearing and seal together.
  5. If replacing the rear axle shaft seal and the bearing on the 9.75 inch axle, install the J 29712 or equivalent bearing puller into the axle housing behind the axle bearing.
  6. Remove the axle shaft seal and the bearing by tightening the nut on the J 29712 bearing puller.
Use a slide hammer, bearing puller and adapter to remove the old axle bearing 88457g81.gif

To Install:
  1. Install the axle shaft bearing using a suitable size driver. Drive the bearing into the housing until the tool bottoms against the tube.
  2. Lubricate the seal lip and install the seal with a suitable seal driver. Make sure the seal is fully seated in the axle tube.
  3. Install the axle shaft.
  4. Fill the rear axle with the correct lubricant.
  5. Lower the vehicle.

How do i chage a c/v axle on a hyundai tiburon


Specifically for 2003 Tiburon V6 6 speed, but may work for you as well.
-Loosen tire lugs
-Remove center caps with screw driver or similar tool (careful not to scratch caps)
-loosen axle nut

-Jack the car up and place on jack stands
-Chalk rear wheels
-finish removing tire lug nuts and tire
-remove cotter pin and finish removing axle nut
-remove brake pads
-remove caliper and brake assembly
-remove rotor (possible PITA), use extreme caution hammering a stuck rotor!

IMPORTANT STEP:
*remove 2 bolts from strut mount assembly. This will allow you enough clearance to "cleanly" pull axle out with minimal force/hammering. No axle puller tool necessary and no messing with the lower ball joint.

-Now gently tap the axle out of the hub assembly
-pull the rest of the axle out of the hub assembly by hand or pry with long screw driver or pickle fork. Again, since you removed the 2 strut assembly bolts, your hub assembly should have dropped down and away from the axle quit a bit to allow you enough clearance to remove axle from hub assembly

**Follow next steps for DRIVER SIDE ONLY**
-Next, place a fluid pan to catch any leaking trans fluid before removing axle from transmission side.
-Using a long screwdriver or pickle fork, pry the axle away from the transmission
-Remove entire axle and replace with new one
-Installation is reverse of removal steps. (not difficult, just line up the splines and everything should "pop" in place

Passenger side cv axle keeps breaking


Contact your local parts store. Some are the same and some are different. I believe that the passenger axle shaft is longer than the drivers side.

Removing the front axle


I am going to assume that this is the driver's side axle you are having problems with. If so, there is a tool that is required with a slide hammer to pull this axle from this transaxle. If it is the passenger side, there is a tool that is inserted through the transaxle after the driver's side axle is removed.
