Question about 1994 Subaru SVX
Tried to fix my 1994 subaru SVX cv axle and I want to know if it's the same cv axle of impreza legacy or forester.
Wrong place to ask
You look on parts web sites
You look at auto part sites
You may at a salvage yard get cross reference data
Auto Parts Store if want to may look up several vehicles
to answer that
What you NEVER do is install any used part in any vehicle
What you do is go to Rock Auto.Com & buy a new or reman
& install it
No reason to even get into this
Just buy a new part,you do not want used in a
drive axle & have an unsafe vehicle

Ok here's a couple helpfuls before i start if you have PB Blaster, that works great on spindle bolts. Another thing you will need is a long pry bar (maybe a crowbar if you had to) with a flat tapered end. You will need to remove your tire, spray the PB Blaster on the axle nut, and the 2 spindle bolts going through the strut.remove the axle nut, and the 2 spindle bolts, and seperate the strut from the spindle. Then swing the spindle and push down on it as you remove the axle spline from the hub. Once you do that, check the transmission side of the axle, to see if it has a "doul roll pin" that you need to tap out with a hammer and punch, but it may be the simple locking ring internaly at the end of the splined shaft. Then all you do is pry it back, make sure you have a very firm place to use for leverage, and give it a hard shove and it should pop right out. or you may need to repeat the prying step a few times. When installing the new axle, make sure it's snapped in completely on the transmission side so you don't damage it. Then all you need to do is reassemble it all.
Also when doing this, make sure you support the car by the body, behind the front wheel under the fender/door area. you will need to let the lower controal arm hang to do this.
Hope that does it for you,

ALL DATA time to R&R valve cover gaskets both sides is 2.1 hours. you will need to remove brackets and connectors on either side, It will also help to take the upper plenium bolts out but not completly pull the plenium. If you don't have a lot of mechanical experiance and some basic tools. you may want to consider to have a local a shop to perform this service for you after you get a estimate. RON.

When I replace the axle halves, I run the Nut off till it is level with the shaft end. THen take a piece of wood and set it across the shaft and hit the wood with a hammer. Usually only takes one or two hits and pops right out.Then I remove the nut and finish removal . Hope this helps, Good luck and have a great day.

the truth about thse engines is they are hard to work on. if the valve covers are unbolted and still ****, try getting a rectangular peice of wood and putting it on the side of the cover neer the gasget, tap on the other end with a hammmer from all angles to try to break the seal.
this is a common problem with valve covers that havent ever been removed and they heat up, and cool down so many times they practically bake onto the head
