SOURCE: cv half axles

Hey tconley3
I have done the front CV half axles in my '96 WRX and did not require a special tool, mine was an Auto, but I suspect a manual car is similar. Firstly, while the car is on the ground, unlock the lock tab and loosen the main hub nut - it can be very tight. Then lift the car up off its wheels and use stands to make sure it is safe and won't fall on you - I have a hoist which is really nice. Take off the wheel, brake caliper (I hang this by a piece of wire from the spring, saves disconnecting and bleeding the brakes) and take off the disc. Take off the main hub nut. Then release the two strut to hub carrier bolts and then knock them out. Note that they are slightly different - put them back the way they came out. The hub will now hang down on the bottom ball joint. At this stage you should be able to push the drive shaft back out of the hub assembly. This is not easy, but I managed to do mine. If this cannot be done then I guess you would need to take the hub off completely by releasing the bottom ball joint. You now have the drive shaft hanging down from the gearbox. The shaft is on a spline. Inside the gearbox on the end of the spline is a radial groove on which sits a wire ring. I assume this is to stop the shaft falling out. As you pull the shaft out, this wire ring comes up against a taper in the gearbox which is supposed to compress the wire ring into the groove and allow the axle to come out. Sometimes this does not happen easily and you will need to **** it out. If it wont come out because the spline or the wire ring is damaged you have a major, major problem which I can't help you with - Gearbox disassembly I suspect. Anyway, that should have the shaft sitting on the floor. The axle shaft pulls out of the CV the same way (spline, wire ring thing). Assembly is easy, but in the reverse order. Use the factory torque settings for all the main nuts/bolts. A few things: get the wheel alignment done after the job. If you cannot get the disc caliper back on the disc, use a "G" clamp and gently push the caliper pistons back into the caliper a bit which will allow you more room between the disc and pistons. If you do this, you will need to gently pump the brake pedal a couple of times to restore the pedal, it will go straight to the floor on the first application - don't find this out on the way out of the shop!!!! Be prepared to loose some skin and get very dirty. If possible, when you have finished, get someone else to check all the bolts for tightness, leaving some of these loose could cause a serious accident.
Hope this helps
Cheers
Keith

SOURCE: what is the procedure to

You don't need the special tools that they use in this procedure, you can use a hammer and a block of wood to get the axle out of the hub and you can use a pry bar to get the axle out of the transmisson.



Notice: Care must be exercised to prevent the constant-velocity joints from being over-extended. When either end of the drive axle is disconnected, over-extension of the joint could result in separation of internal components and possible joint failure. Drive axle joints and seals should be protected any time service is performed on or near the drive axles. Failure to observe this can result in interior joint or seal damage and possible joint failure.
Notice: Prior to removal of drive axle assembly, cover all sharp edges in the area of the drive axle with shop towels so that the seal is not damaged during removal.
Removal Procedure

  1. Raise and suitably support the vehicle. Refer to Lifting and Jacking the Vehicle in General Information.
  2. Remove the tire and the wheel assembly. Refer to Tire and Wheel Removal and Installation in Tires and Wheels.
  3. Place shop towels underneath the outer joint to protect from any sharp edges.

  4. 141983.gif
    tif.gif
  5. Insert a drift (1) into the caliper and the rotor to prevent the rotor from turning.
  6. Remove the drive axle nut (2) and the washer.
  7. Remove the lower ball join from the steering knuckle. Refer to Lower Control Arm Ball Joint Replacement in Front Suspension. If you remove the right axle, turn the wheel to the left. If you remove the left axle, turn the wheel to the right.
  8. Disconnect the wheel speed speed sensor harness. Refer to Wheel Speed Sensor Replacement in Antilock Brake System.
  9. Disconnect the stabilizer link from the lower control arm. Refer to Stabilizer Shaft Link Replacement in Front Suspension.

  10. 442393.gif
    tif.gif
  11. Use the J 28733-B in order to disengage the axle from the hub and the bearing.
  12. Separate the hub and the bearing assembly from the drive axle. Move the strut and the knuckle assembly rearward.

  13. 500285.gif
    tif.gif
  14. Remove the inner joint from the transaxle using J 33008 attached to J 29794 and J 2619-01 for the intermediate shaft, if equipped.
Installation Procedure Notice: Prior to installation of drive axle assembly, cover all sharp edges in the area of the drive axle with shop towels so that the seal is not damaged during installation.
Any time the front halfshaft is removed, the transmission (the halfshaft male and female shank) and the knuckle sealing surfaces should be inspected for debris or corrosion.
If debris or corrosion are present on the sealing surfaces, clean them with a 320 grit cloth or equivalent. Transmission fluid may be used to clean off any of the remaining debris. The surface should be wiped dry, and the halfshaft should be reinstalled free of any debris or corrosion buildup.

    189013.gif
    tif.gif
  1. Install the drive axle (2) into the transaxle (1). Place a non-ferrous drift into the groove on the joint housing and then tap until the drift is seated. Be careful not to damage the axle seal or dislodge the seal garter spring when you install the axle.

  2. 442471.gif
    tif.gif
    Important: Verify that the drive axle is seated by grasping on the inner joint housing and pulling outboard.
  3. Install the drive axle (1) into the hub and bearing assembly (2).
  4. Install the stabilizer link. Refer to Stabilizer Shaft Link Replacement in Front Suspension.
  5. Connect the wheel speed sensor harness. Refer to Wheel Speed Sensor Replacement in Antilock Brake System.
  6. Install the lower ball joint to the steering knuckle. Refer to Lower Control Arm Ball Joint Replacement in Front Suspension.

  7. 141983.gif
    tif.gif
    Notice: Use the correct fastener in the correct location. Replacement fasteners must be the correct part number for that application. Fasteners requiring replacement or fasteners requiring the use of thread locking compound or sealant are identified in the service procedure. Do not use paints, lubricants, or corrosion inhibitors on fasteners or fastener joint surfaces unless specified. These coatings affect fastener torque and joint clamping force and may damage the fastener. Use the correct tightening sequence and specifications when installing fasteners in order to avoid damage to parts and systems.
  8. Install the washer and the new drive axle nut (2).
  9. Insert a drift (1) into the caliper and the rotor in order to prevent the rotor from turning.
    Tighten
    Tighten the drive axle nut to 200 N·m (144 lb ft).
  10. Install the tire and the wheel assembly. Refer to Tire and Wheel Removal and Installation in Tires and Wheels.
  11. Lower the vehicle

SOURCE: How to remove CV Axle from Manual Transmission on 2002 cavalier

the axle just pulls or snaps out of the trans, it is held in by an internal round spring clip, they are a real bear to remove the 1st time, u must pull straight out with a sharp jerking motion to get them to release, be patient it will come out.

SOURCE: How to change cv axle Chevy Impala

Ok CV axles are ones used only on front wheel drive vehicles so if this is the case here you go....before you jack up the car, try to loosen up the spindle/hub nut using a good size strong breaker bar and pipe assembly once loose jack up take opff tire,remove the disc caliper assembly,reve the axle bolt/washer, remove the rotor and bearing hub and assembly, place a pan under the outboard side of the transmission (where the axle slips in to catch any trans fliud that may leak out) pry the axle shaft out....remember to always support any vehicle with jack stands to insure your safety....wear goolgles rust and grease **** when it hits the eye balls and try to wear mechanics gloves to help prevent any nasty cuts and or grease paws...replace using the same proceedure....when you have everything in....tighten up the axle shaft bolt once the car is lowere with the wheel on the ground as this will allow you to fully torque that large nut to its full capacity, hope this helps.....John.

How to remove front axle on a 1996 Chevy Corsica


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

You will not be successful replacing just the switch. Cars with delay wipers utilize different wiper motors, and wiring harness's than cars without.

1996 jetta, drive shaft seals


Best way to remove the axle is yo place a prybar between the transmission and axle housing and give it a quick jolt. The axle is held in the transmission slines by a retainer ring so all you have to do is pop it out. But be careful not to tear the cv boot and do not pull on the shaft or you will seperate the cv joint. Good luck.. Hope this helps.
