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

Rear passenger axle needs replaced

A Sunfire is front wheel drive, so there should not be a rear axle.
There is a rear strut, the hub and bearing is bolted to the trailing arm and strut. The tire and wheel bolt to the hub.
I would get two estimates for repairs before making a decision. It could have under-body damage too.

Shocks and Struts

Shocks are pretty easy but struts are a different story so just take it into your local mechanic.
Heres what to do with the shocks, jack the van up either on the front or back first and put some axel stands under the axels, then unbolts the shocks and they should slide out from inside the springs and then replace them with your new shocks and then repeat the process on the back shocks and your all done.

How do you get the alternator out?

I am trying to remove the alternator in a 2004 Mazda Tribute--I have removed the belt, dropped the crossmember, removed the exhaust under the alternator, and taken loose the axel carrier support in hopes that it would move far enough to remove the alternator but it doesn't have enough flex.

How to install rear struts on 94 pontiac grand prix

Struts are pretty easy to remove. 3 nuts in trunk under carpet then there are 2 bolts with nuts that hold the bottom to the rear axel. then 1 stabalizer bolt. Once the nuts are off the 2 bottom bolts you drive them out with a hammer. They are tapered so that hammer wont hurt them.

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.

"tumbling noise" when braking, bumpy roads, or turning right.

If you just replaced the strut on the other side thats where i would be checking first, did it make the noise before you chg. it? If not, maybe something came loose. The only sure way to know if its an axel is to get under it and see if there is any play or loosness in the cv-joints of the axel.

Wheel bearing & drive axel replacement

lift the car support on jack stands remove the wheels remove the brake systems remove the wheel hub locking nut and then remove the strut (this must be compressed or it will hurt you)
remove the axles then when that is complete you need to have the wheel bearings knocked out of the brake hub or removed from the strut assembly and then a new pair reseated, or bolted on then you can assemble in reverse, if you are not mechanically inclined I would recommend a mechanic to do this.
