Question about 1993 Toyota Pickup
4wd is not working upon further inspection I noticed that the axle on the passenger side is sliding out from the differential. Is there a lock ring or pin that holds the shaft in place?
I'm certain there isn't anything other than what ever holds it at the hub. when you disassemble the hub and hub bearing there is a retaining ring or snap ring and 6 axle to diff housing bolts... The issue I'm trying to wrap my mind around is that there really isn't anywhere for that axle to go unless it is broken in the housing. My advise is to pull that axle out through the steering knuckle and make sure that the snap ring didn't brake or the axle. good luck, bearing grease is messy

Looks like you have your answer. most toyota's I have dealt with were full floaters, no lock ring needed. good luck

more than like have a broken axle shaft, un hook the rear drive shaft and put it in 4wd if it wont move then you know you got a broken axle shaft or spider gears broke in the pumpkin

have you undone the main hub bolt, if yes, there could be two different items holding the cv joint on, one is a small circlip in the joint end, or the other is just like an expanding metal ring again only small. what i had to do to change my one was take the driveshaft out (easier to see whats there) then gently (rubber hammer) hit the CV joint it should then fall off to allow you to change the CV joint. I spent over an hour trying to get the metal ring off, then after taking driveshaft off it was changed and back on in ten mins. Or you can go to a motor factors or similar and get a boot puller, my opinion hammer works better lol

There is a pin in the differental that has to be taken out to pull the axles out. 1-bolt to remove the pin, then the C-clips will come off to slide the axles out.
