I question the statement that the axle may be broken and that you cannot push it either. If there is an axle problem then you would be able to push it as there would be nothing to stop it from moving as it won't now in any gear Look some where else like the park brake stuck on ( not being able to push it) or the auto stuck in park or the brakes stuck on. If auto check flexi plate is ok at torque converter and there is oil in the gear box. If manual check that the clutch is engaging and not being held off by a faulty master cylinder

Well first you need a floor jack to put under bottom a-frame, then unhook shock from bottom a-frame or take off completely its up to you, unhook sway bar from bottom a- frame, and remove caliber off rotor and hang it off to the side, when all thats done you will have to pop the bottom ball joint, then you can put in new axel. Should not take more than 2 hours to do.

I don't think this will work. Your car is all wheel drive and power is distributed to all 4 wheels, with most of the power going to the front. If you remove the front axles the entire system is broken and your car won't move.

Front drive shaft axle


Its possible one of the axle yokes is not completely inserted into the differential. You have to use a hammer to push the axle in beyond the small spring clip in most cases.

Front axle not fully engaging and makes really loud noise when this happens which in turn ruins a gear in front axle have replaced cable, gear and now am being told vacuum switch transfer case needs...


Its sounds **** you are haveing a problem with the vacuum actuator that moves the gear in and out of 4 wheel drive mode. Its located under the battery tray. You need to remove the battery and the tray then its easy to serivce its a diaifram and if it isn't holding vacuum eighter its bad or you have some kind of a vacuum leak leading to it If you can fix it now your gear should be ok just don't let this go to long it could lead to some expensive repairs It cuuld also be the vacuum actuator at the transfer case but this sounds like you are haveing someone do this work for you. Iwould ask them why they didn't fix the problem correctly in the first place thats what you pay them for and it sure sounds like they misdiagnosed the problem in the first place

Cant get rear axles out


IT SHOULD HAVE THE C-CLIPS HOLDING THE AXLE IN. WITH THE REAR AXLE COVER REMOVED YOU SHOULD SEE THE END OF THE AXLES. THE WAY TO REMOVE THE AXLE C CLIPS IS BY REMOVING THE SPIDER GEAR (PINNION GEARS) THROUGH SHAFT. AFTER THE SHAFT HAS BEEN REMOVED, THE AXLES WILL BE FREE TO PUSH INWARD AND THIS WILL ALLOW YOU TO REMOVE THE C CLIPS FROM THE END OF THE AXLE AT THE AXLE GEARS. YOU CAN ALSO GET AN IDEA IF THIS IS THE TYPE AXLE LOCK YOU HAVE BY JACKING UP THE VEHICLE AND PUSHING THE AXLE IN AND OUT. THIS TYPE AXLE HAS RIGHT MUCH END PLAY. IF THE COVER IS OFF THE AXLE HOUSING YOU WILL SEE THE END OF THE AXLE MOVE IN AND OUT.
