    tried this, any other suggestion(s)?

    Have you any other suggestions?

  • ricere May 14, 2009

    This was mention in conversation with others, but the question as to what will come out of the transmission (how much fluid, ball bearings etc.,) has kept me from doing this. The spindle - when I remove the snap ring - how long of a shaft will come out? Will there be any need to 'tug' this piece to get it out? I know this shaft doesn't go through to the RH side, but fits in a gimbal of sorts????? Any alignment issues to be concern about on the re-installation of the spindle? I have to tools to remove the spindle!!!

    Guru,

    Are you still available to answer my last series of questions concerning the hub/spindle removal?

  • ricere May 15, 2009

    I'll attempt to try the heat application next and reserve the removal of the output shaft and hub as a last ditch consideration. I'm satisfied with the responses given, thanks!

Tap with wedge or chisel between hub & spindle. Usually 2 pry bars between hub & spindle face will do it. Side to side, top & bottom, keep it as straight as you can coming out.

    It may come down to removing spindle so you can get at hub & bearing from back side, on a bench, or a press to push it out. Sorry, but it will probably take less time, than you've probably spent on it so far.

    Drive shaft will stay there and spindle will slide off drive shaft. Spray splines good before with penetrating spray.to be sure.

    Have you thought about using a puller in the center of the shaft, and around back side of spindle just to crack it loose? I have to apologize, I thought the problem was getting bearing and hub off of spindle. A little heat in the right spot might crack it loose too.

    If you end up taking spindle, & shaft all out in one piece, all you need to do is put a small pry bar between shaft & transmission & carefully give it a quick snap, prying out on housing. There's usually just a little snap ring that snaps in when shaft goes in, & be sure you hear it snap back in when you put everything back together. You may get a little fluid coming out, but that should be all.

  • Mike Butler
    Mike Butler May 16, 2009

    You'll get it. Good Luck, let me know how you made out & thanks for taking time to rate solution.

Sorry for the confusion!


If you've removed the 3 bolts holding hub to spindle on the back,and nut holding shaft to hub in center then prying with 2 bars, side to side should do it, but it sounds like your not having much success. Have you tried tapping side to side, top & bottom, to keep it as straight as you can when coming out?

Front cv axle 1995 dodge intrepid


Naturally you need to remove the tire then the brake caliper. After the brake caliper is removed then you need to remove the 34mm axle nut that is inside the hub. After that is removed then you can remove the hub. Becareful not to damage the hub seal on the back or you will have to buy a new hub (100 or more). Then you need to remove the strut knuckle assembly. Once the knuckle assembly is removed then you can pull the CV axle. Take care the inner CV housing is held in place by an inner snap ring. You will probably have to pry off the inner housing. Once the axle is off then install the new axle (if you buy complete axle). Make sure if you are doing both that you take care which side you are installing. I made that mistake and double the work. Slide the new axle on the spline and make sure it is seated completely. Then put back together the reverse of removal.
