IF its a 1990 Ford f-150 its easier than looking at pictures,pictures in black and white are sometimes hard to understand, here is some steps to do it: pull off brake caliper then pull off 4x4 locking hub or the 6 allen head bolts,then there is a large o ring that holds in the aluminum hub,pull that off,then there is a smaller snap ring around the axle shaft,pull that off then the whole 4x4 locking hub unit comes right out.then you need an axel nut socket which is about $15.00 at the auto parts store to pull off the large nut that holds the hub on,that socket has to be for that year and if its heavy or light duty,pull off the rotor and hub together,then there is about 6 bolts that holds the hub shaft to the spindle,unbolt them and work the hub back and forth till it comes out.you can use a piece of wood against it and hit it with a hammer but dont hit the threads on the hub or you wont be able to reassemble the rotor and hub tight.then the axle just pulls straight out with a little wiggling.For reassemble reverse this order and it should go pretty well.Both right and left comes out the same way,but on the right there is a rubber boot with a clamp where the axle seperates towards the center of vehicle.

How do I replace my inner axle on the passenger side of my 2002 Dodge Ram 4x4 4.7L. I lent my truck out and the C clip let go of the CV axle. The intermediate axle spline is stripped and I need to change...


Lift and support front end on suitable jack stands preferably on frame. Remove right front cv axle, stub shaft, and seal. You will need to pull the right front brake caliper assembly loose and place to the side. Then remove bolts from shock and upper control arm and hub nut to do this. Next, remove axle lock actuator on passenger side of front axle. Place a drain pan underneath front diff cover and remove cover and drain axle. In the center of differential there will be an 8 mm head bolt holding spider gear cross-shaft. Remove bolt and cross-shaft only! Push inner axle in until clip clears inside of passenger spider gear. Set clip aside and push/pull axle shaft straight out to passenger side.

1999 ford f350 7.3 litre diesel.....I have the front apart and need help with a diagram of how to replace the cv joint for the FRONT drive shaft!! Having a brain **** and can't think how! Thanks


I assume that you have removed all the front parts and that you problem is that the axle won't come out of the axle housing easily. Some axles are held in place in the diff by a round shaped circlip that depresses and allows the axle to slip out when there is sufficient force applied (pull) and a sharp hit with a hammer. Replacement is the reverse with a sharp pish to refit. AS to getting the cv joint apart that is another problem

My front differential is leaking!


I cannot see it, but I am guessing that you need to replace your axle seal. To do this,you have to pull your CV shaft out. Remove the tire, remove the caliper from the top of the rotor. Using a hammer on the back, remove the rotor. Take off the spindle (axle) nut, separate the axle (CV shaft) from the hub. Replace seal. It should pop right out. Good luck!
