not only do i agree with matt_tiffany, but if you have metal on the out side think of whats on the inside. get a new axle clean out all metal particles you can. and change your trany fluid when everything else is done.

I would suggest getting a new CV axle. If it it stripped it probably wasnt installed right at some point in time and needs replaced before you end up needing a new tranny.

Removing right side axel

Remove the tire, remove the axle nut, disconnect the lower ball joint. Remove the axle spline from the bearing.(sometimes they have to be beaten out). Clear the axle from the bearing(push or pull on the bearing/spindle). Use a pry bar to pop the axle out of the transmission. Replace in opposite order. This is generic. Year,make, and model does help.

Drive axle seal leaking 2005 Honda Civic DX

Remove the ball joint stud from the lower control arm. Remove the axle nut and remove the axel from the hub. Pry axle out of the transmission. Use a suitable tool to pry or pull the seal out. Clean seal mating surface. Lube seal lip and instal seal in transmission. You may need to tap the seal in but there are times when you can install it by hand. Then install axle, tighten axle nut, and install ball joint back into control arm. And tighten. Don't forget to put cotter pin in and check the transmission fluid.

Remove axle

if you need to remove the axle from the spindle side then you need to take the axle nut off which you have to remove the rim n tire and it will be dead center approx 1in size nut or bigger not sure exact size

second have to remove the nut on the lower ball joint n seperate the lower control arm and strut. will need a ball joint fork which you can get at any parts store and a pry bar to push down on control arm once ball joint is broken loose to seperate the strut. this will allow you to push the axle back troungh the spindle to remove it.

last but not least where the axel goes in to the transmission you will need a small pry bar to pop it out from transmission. jus put it between axle n transmission and apply pressure till it comes out. the axel has a oring style clip which holds it in place so not able to pull it out by hand. caution when you pull the axel it will leak out some fluid so make sure you have a drain pan .

to install jus follow the process backward jus make sure the axel pops back in place securely other wise when you go to drive it you risk it poping out. good luck n hope this helps you

How do I remove the front left axle shaft on a chevy 2007

remove the axle nut first, always took the upper ball joint loose just take the nut off apply some upwards pressure and hit spindle with hammer and it will allow you to move the hub and all out enough to remove axle. the upper ball joint nut has to come off
and seperate the ball joint from the steering knuckle
then plenty of room. good-day ! then just slide axel out,or pry between axel and ****** to pop it loose, it has a locking clip on transmission side. when putting back in make sure axel is locked in ******. and do not forget to torque axel nut when done.

How do i change the rh diff axle seal on a hyundia accent 2002 auto

place the vehicle on a lift (preferred) and remove the RH front wheel. Remove the driver axel retaining nut (1 1/4" nut) and washer. Remove the lower ball joint retaining nut (17mm nut). Using a 10 oz hammer, strike the nuckle where the lower ball joint is attached to it (be careful not to strike the grease boot) while applying downward force on the lower control arm until it pops loose. Once loose, pry down on the lower control are while simultaneously moving the strut to one side untill the joint is clear/away from the knuckle. Now remove the drive axel from the the spline of the hub bearing. Using a pry bar, pop loose the axel from the transmission differential. Installation of the new axel is in reverse order.
