Do you mean the drive shaft. if so you just need a good lever bar to prise the drive shaft out of the transmission.if you mean you want the drive shaft out of the front wheel hub then you may need a good pller to femove it as it can be very tight on the splines

Is it necessary to remove the cv axle to remove the transmission from a 2001 ford escort?

interesting challenge! if the axle nut is not rounded there are some powerful electric impact guns out there, the other side of the street, the transmission once unbolted and the axle pryed loose and there is enough room between sub frame and engine it will come out, automatic is easier but heavier... heat wrench would be nice (torch)

Do I have to remove the engine to remove the transmission from a 1997 ford escort lx automatic?

Yes and no. If you don't remove the engine the transaxle has to come out from the bottom in most cases. That means the cradle has to be lowered and the suspension taken apart.

Need to replace a front passenger cv axle shaft in my escort zx2 and i cant figure our how to do it

  1. Jack the car up
  2. Remove the wheel
  3. Loosen the axle nut at the center of the hub
  4. Remove the lower ball joint and tie rod from the hub. Disconnect the strut from the hub.
  5. As you're swinging the hub out of the way, tap the center of the axle stub with a hammer a few times to loosen it, then push it back out of the hub, toward the transmission.
  6. Insert a pry bar between the transmission and inboard CV stub, and gently pry outward in a couple places, until the axle pops out.
  7. Place a drain pan under the inboard stub, and remove it.
  8. Installation is the reverse of removal.

I want to remove front axel driver side please

Basically, you loosen the axle-nut (could be pretty tough, so spray some lubricant on it) and the wheel nuts. Jack up the car and support it on jack-stands.
Reomve the brake calipers and tie it up to frame. Remove the two bolts holding the struts bracket and steering-knuckle. Push down/sideways to separate both strut-bracket and steering-knuckle. Use large screw-driver or pry bar to pry off axle from side of transmission. Block-off transmission fuild with a nylon rag or similar; take out axle-shaft. Installation is reverse of removal.

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.
