If it's 4 wheel drive, but it won't be without the front driveshaft. Newer vehicles may have issues without it if there are stability control systems or the like.

2001 chevy blazer transfer case removal


How to Remove a Chevy Blazer Rear Transfer Case The transfer case on a Chevrolet Blazer is underneath the vehicle, mounted to the rear of the transmission. On four-wheel drive vehicles, the transfer case takes power generated by the engine and channeled through the transmission and directs it to the front and rear drive axles. Over time, the gears and bearings inside the transfer case can wear and the transfer case must be rebuilt. The transfer case on this vehicle must be removed before it can be serviced.
Things You'll Need
  • Wrench set
  • Floor jack
  • Jack stands
  • Socket set
  • Masking tape
  • Marker
  • Needle-nose pliers
Hide Instructions
  1. Removing the Driveshafts
    • 1 Disconnect the ground cable from the negative battery terminal, by using a wrench to loosen the retaining bolt and pulling the clamp off the terminal.
  • 2 Raise the vehicle and support with jack stands placed underneath the frame.
  • 3 Drain the transfer case. Locate the drain plug near the bottom of the transfer case. Place a waste oil collection pan underneath the plug and use a socket to remove it. Once all the fluid has drained out, reinstall the plug.
  • 4 Remove the bolts that connect the rear driveshaft to the rear axle yoke using a socket. Lower the driveshaft, and slide it backward underneath the rear axle to disengage it from the transfer case. Remove it from the vehicle.
  • 5 Remove the bolts that connect the front driveshaft to the front axle yoke using a socket. Lower the driveshaft, and slide it forward underneath the front axle to disengage it from the transfer case. Remove the driveshaft from the vehicle.
  • Removing the Transfer Case
    • 6 Label and disconnect the electrical wires and vacuum lines connected to the transfer case. Use masking tape and a marker.
    • 7 Remove the transfer case shifter rod. Using needle-nose pliers, remove the clip that connects the shifter rod to the transfer case. Slide the rod away from the transfer case.
    • 8 Position a floor jack underneath the transfer case. Raise it enough to take the weight of the transfer case off the transmission.
    • 9 Remove the bolts that connect the transfer case to the transmission using a socket or wrench.
    • 10 Slide the transfer case rearward to disengage it from the transfer case. Lower the floor jack, and remove the transfer case from the vehicle

    How to remove axle from front of 1998 windstar


    1. Raise and support the vehicle safely.
    2. Remove the front wheels.
    3. Insert a steel rod into the brake rotor to prevent the rotor from turning and loosen the axle wheel hub nut. Discard the nut.
    4. Remove the ball joint-to-front wheel knuckle retaining nut. Drive the bolt out of the front wheel knuckle using a punch and hammer.
    5. Remove the front brake anti-lock sensor and position it out of the way.
    6. Separate the ball joint from the front wheel knuckle using a prybar. Position the end of the prybar outside of the bushing pocket to avoid damage to the bushing.
    Use care to prevent damage to the front wheel driveshaft joint boot.
    1. Remove the stabilizer bar link at the front stabilizer bar.
    Make sure the CV-joint puller does not contact the transaxle shaft speed sensor. Damage to the sensor will result.
    1. Install a CV-Joint Puller (T86P-3514-A1) or equivalent between the inboard CV-joint and the transaxle case.
    2. Install a CV-Joint Extension (T86P-3514-A2) or equivalent into the puller and hand-tighten.
    3. Using an impact slide hammer, remove the driveshaft from the transaxle.
    Do not allow the front wheel driveshaft and joint to hang unsupported. Damage to the front wheel driveshaft joint may result. Do not wrap wire around the front wheel driveshaft joint boot. Damage to the boot may result.
    1. Support the end of the driveshaft and joint assembly by suspending it from the chassis using a length of wire.
    Never use a hammer to separate the outboard front wheel driveshaft joint from the wheel hub. Damage to the outboard front wheel driveshaft joint threads and internal components may result.
    1. Separate the outboard front wheel driveshaft joint from the wheel hub using a Front Hub Remover/Replacer (T81P-1104-C) or equivalent. Make sure the hub remover adapter is fully threaded onto the hub stud.
    Do not move the vehicle without the outboard CV-joint properly installed, as damage to the bearing may occur.
    1. Remove the front wheel driveshaft and joint assembly from the vehicle.
    To install:
    Do not reuse the retainer circlip. A new circlip must be installed each time the inboard CV-joint stub shaft is installed into the transaxle differential.
    1. Install a new retainer circlip on the inboard CV-joint stub shaft by starting one end in the groove and working the retainer circlip over the inboard shaft housing end and into the groove. This will avoid overexpanding the circlip.
    A non-metallic mallet may be used to aid in seating the retainer circlip into the differential side gear groove. If a mallet is necessary, tap only on the outboard CV-joint stub shaft.
    1. Carefully align the splines of the inboard CV-joint stub shaft housing with the splines in the differential. Exerting some force, push the inboard CV-joint stub shaft housing into the differential until the retainer circlip is felt to seat in the differential side gear. Use care to prevent damage to the inboard CV-joint stub shaft and transaxle seal.
    2. Carefully align the splines of the outboard front wheel driveshaft joint with the splines in the wheel hub, and push the shaft into the wheel hub as far as possible.
    3. Temporarily fasten the front disc brake rotor to the wheel hub with washers and two lug nuts. Insert a steel rod into the front disc brake rotor and rotate clockwise to contact the front wheel knuckle, to prevent the front disc brake rotor from turning during front wheel driveshaft and joint installation.
    A new front axle wheel hub retaining nut must be installed.
    1. Manually thread the front axle wheel hub retaining nut onto the outboard CV-joint stub shaft housing as far as possible.
    A new bolt and nut must be used to connect the front suspension arm to the knuckle.
    1. Connect the front suspension lower arm to the front wheel knuckle. Tighten the nut and bolt to 40-55 ft. lbs. (54-74 Nm).
    2. Install the front brake anti-lock sensor.
    3. Connect the front stabilizer bar link and tighten to 35-45 ft. lbs. (47-65 Nm).
    Do not use power or impact tools to tighten the hub nut.
    1. Tighten the front axle wheel hub retaining nut to 157-212 ft. lbs. (213-287 Nm).
    2. Install the front wheels and lower the vehicle.
    3. Using the recommended type of fluid, fill the transaxle to the proper level.

    1. NOTE: Removal of the LH front wheel driveshaft and joint (3B437) requires removal of the transmission support crossmember (6A023) to allow access with a pry bar. If the LH front wheel driveshaft and joint is being removed, continue with step 11. If the RH front wheel driveshaft and joint is being removed, continue with step 15.

      Support the transaxle with a transaxle jack or equivalent.

    HELP PLEASE !


    When you get under the driverside of the vehicle you will see the front driveshaft coming from the transmission to the front differential. At the two ends there will be I think 6, 8mm bolts. 12 total. Loosen them all up. To get to them by rotating the driveshaft you'll have to put the front end of the vehicle on jackstands and put the transmission in nuetral. Remimber to have the parking brake on. Once loose hit the ends of the shaft with a rubber mallet( not a steel hammer). Sometimes corrosion builds up in the joint and can make it a pain to break free. Once the joints are loose, remove the screws you loosened earlier and the shaft should come out. Good Luck
