Hi, the driveshaft or cv shaft usually comes out with a good hard pull.
but if that does not work? between the trans and the shaft. there is a little gap, put a cheese wedge shape tool or bar and tap it and it should come out, it will help if there is two of you working on it.

Good luck!

How do u get the female cv knuckle off the trans output


Look for a roll pin that must be punched out, so the axle can slip off. It is a stub shaft out of the transaxle? That is the kind with a roll pin to hold the axle onto the stub shaft. Use a hammer and proper sized punch to drive out the roll pin. It fits in a hole in the center of the axle and stub shaft.

How do i remove the front drive shafts on a 97 mazda b2600 4wd to replace the cv boots?


When you did the ball joints you should have pulled the axles

I would guess that you know the axle nut has to come off & that
in most cases you break the bottom ball joint loose, so you can
get the axle out of the steering knuckle

So I will guess you can't get the axle out of the trans

You use a long pry par,3 foot or more & put the end against
a piece of wood, so as not to pry on the aluminum trans case

Then you pop it out with the pry bar.
You don't pry on the axle ,you use the side of the pry bar
to bang it with the end against the wood

99 geo metro automatic transmission grinds when put into gear,it happened with no warning of a malfuction,what happened?


CV Joints can break internally and cause the sound similar to trans problems.

You will either need a new axle/CV Joint, or to probably replace/rebuild the Transaxle completely.

You may be able to tell more from underneath with someone turning the wheel as you watch the CV Joint housing to make sure it's moving at the same time on both ends. If one end of the shaft moves, the other should move equally, not just the axle shaft, the ends that go into the trans and through the front wheels!


Good luck!

I need to remove my front axel on my 1989 toyota camry


Jack up car and apply e-brake. car will roll if one of the front tires leaves the ground. remove tire , spindal nut and lower ball joint bolts. remove axle from hub then use a prybar to pop it out of trans. the passenger side will have a braket holding axle to engine , remove bolts from braket or squeeze snap-ring to rmove axle from braket.

I recently changed the cv axle on right hand side of my 04 kia sedona, the cv axle went into like a mid bearing and had a small shaft from there into the transmission. that seal at the transmission is...


The seal you need is called a transmission/transaxle output shaft seal. The 2 best things to do, either get the number off the original seal and have it matched at a local autoparts store or go to Kia/Hyundai. they will know the proper seal. Be sure to install the seal evenly into the trans or it may leak again. If you need anything further, please let me know.

How to change a Cv joint on a 1997 Pontiac Grandam


While the car is still on the ground remove the half shaft nut then jack the car up and support it with jack stands and remove the tire. after you get the tire off you may have to remove the break caliper and the rotor, if you have to do this now. Remove the lower ball joint nut and break apart the ball joint with a large pry bar by prying down on the lower a frame. grab the steering knuckle with both hands and pull until the half shaft is free from the bearing hub assembly. then grab the half shaft and give it a good tug to remove it from the trans axle, you may have to pry it out with a small pry bar wedged between the inner cv joint and the trans axle. at this point I would replace the entire half shaft it is cheaper and a lot easier than replacing the cv joint. installation is reversed but be careful of the splines when installing the half shaft back into the trans axle and the bearing hub. Good luck.

I heard a loud pop, then the vehicle wont move in any gear.It then grinds when I try to put it in park.


It sounds like you broke a Constant Velocity joint (CV Joint). The pop was probably the joint breaking. When you put it in gear it's just spinning. Think of one of your hands as the transmission. Hold a pencil that would be the CV Joint(s) and axle, and use the other hand to hold the other end of the pencil. That's the front hub (part that makes the wheel turn). So you have ...hand, pencil...hand = trans, axle... wheel. If you hold the pencil firmly with both hands, and spin the pencil with one, both hands still move.

If the pencil breaks...the one not spinning does nothing.

So...The transmission is trying to make the van go, but the cv joint is broken, so the wheels aren't spinning. When you put the van in park, the transmission doesn't know the vans not moving. Therefore it's making the same noise as if you put the van in park while driving. If you must start the van and put it in gear to see if the driver's or passenger's axle is just spinning. Shut the van off, wait a minute for the axle shaft to stop spinning, and then put it in park.
