Question about 2000 Chevrolet Blazer
1997 S10 Blazer, 4WD, Standard suspension package. Am replacing the right front CV shaft (drive axle). Have everything apart , with the shaft resting on the lower control arm. Question: How do I get the thing out of its differential or transmission housing? Is it supposed to just pop out with a little prying pressure like the left side does or is there another trick to it. This is the one that has the female end, with spline on the inside of the end of the part that goes into the transmission...as opposed to the left side which has a male end, with spline on the outside of the shaft. I have t tried to pry it off and put some relatively high pressure on it with a pry-bar, and there is no give. Do I just use a "bigger hammer" or is there an intermediary step? Thanks for the help.
Yes ,it should just pop off.Have someone pull a little on it while you tap on the axle.There is an inside shaft that the outer shaft slides onto and there is a c-clip holding the two together. Sometimes the inner shaft pulls out with the outer axle if the clip doesnot release.If this happens you'll have to be carefull putting the inner shaft back in,because there is a washer at the end that may fall down and the axle willnot go back in.There is a pilot bearing at the end inside that the tip of the inner axle goes into and just before it is where the washer is.
