No easier way other than paying someone else to do it,Also the fluid fill plug is located half way up the side of the transmission and the drain plug is on the bottom.

First loosen the steering knuckle by unfastening either the tie rod end or the strut. After you've removed the center axle nut, tap the outer end of the axle with a mallet to get it started, then pry it out the rest of teh way. Use a pry bar on the inside end.

How do i chage a c/v axle on a hyundai tiburon

Specifically for 2003 Tiburon V6 6 speed, but may work for you as well.
-Loosen tire lugs
-Remove center caps with screw driver or similar tool (careful not to scratch caps)
-loosen axle nut

-Jack the car up and place on jack stands
-Chalk rear wheels
-finish removing tire lug nuts and tire
-remove cotter pin and finish removing axle nut
-remove brake pads
-remove caliper and brake assembly
-remove rotor (possible PITA), use extreme caution hammering a stuck rotor!

*remove 2 bolts from strut mount assembly. This will allow you enough clearance to "cleanly" pull axle out with minimal force/hammering. No axle puller tool necessary and no messing with the lower ball joint.

-Now gently tap the axle out of the hub assembly
-pull the rest of the axle out of the hub assembly by hand or pry with long screw driver or pickle fork. Again, since you removed the 2 strut assembly bolts, your hub assembly should have dropped down and away from the axle quit a bit to allow you enough clearance to remove axle from hub assembly

**Follow next steps for DRIVER SIDE ONLY**
-Next, place a fluid pan to catch any leaking trans fluid before removing axle from transmission side.
-Using a long screwdriver or pickle fork, pry the axle away from the transmission
-Remove entire axle and replace with new one
-Installation is reverse of removal steps. (not difficult, just line up the splines and everything should "pop" in place

1992 Toyota Corolla CV Joint

You can pick up an entire re manufactured axle assembly at your local auto parts store. In order to replace the assembly you will need to disconnect the tie rod end and the ball joint. Remove the spindle nut. Push the axle stub out of the hub. Now with a suitable container under the axle to catch spilled fluid pry the axle from the transmission housing. Install is the reverse of removal. For more detailed instructions and diagrams go to vehicle repair guides.

1989 toyota corolla base 4-door manual tranny, drivers side drive shaft has play in transmission side, both the driveshaft and transaxle bearings look okay, what else is there? what keeps those shafts...

There is a large lock nut that holds the axle into the splined end inside the transaxle. This nut is usually torqued into place very well though, but if it is loose or was not torqued properly then this could cause free-play in the axle. You can look up the torque specs online or use a chilton or Haynes manual to get the specification.

There is a little spring loaded clip on the end of the axle in the trans. Just uses a pry bar against the trans housing and inner axle joint to pop the axle out.

CV Axle removal and installation

The axle should be able to be removed by using a flat ended pry bar tool with a dull flat end. Or possibly a very large flat screw driver. Put the pry bar between the axle and transmission. With light pressure, the axle should pop out of the transmission. The axle just snaps into the transmission. There should be no need or cause to damage the seal because the seal is inset into the transmission. Just watch what you are doing. As far as replacing the seal, I do not know. I have not had to do that yet, and I have replaced both sides with new boots more than once.

Do i have to pry the axle out of the transmission

Hello, I guess that you dont have the expensive proper tools for the job and need to improvise without damaging anything?.
Probably the easiest way is to unbolt the bottom balljoint,which allows the strut with brakes attached to swing/hang freely.DO NOT pull on strut to remove axle,that will only damage the c.v joint(you can get away with it sometimes).If you have someone helping,ask them to keep a constant pull/pressure while you are doing the next step.Which is to use two large bladed screwdrivers(or similiar)on opposing sides(eg;top+bottom or left/right etc) of the big black c.v joint coming out of the gearbox.There is a 5mm groove to put the screwdriver into.Apply pressure towards gearbox and the axle will pop out,so will oil.
Hope that helps.
