There's nothing holding the axle to the hub (aside from the axle nut) besides maybe some rust. I like to either spin the nut on the axle until it's flush with the end of the axle and tap it with a hammer or use a block of wood and a hammer on the axle being careful not to mushroom the end of the axle.

Axle on drivers side won't snap into place over the little c clip


pack the channel the ring sits in with grease. The grease will help hold the clip centered on the axle. You don't need a lot just enough to keep the ring from moving. Then slide the axle into place using a rubber mallet to gently "convince" the axle into place.

Can i replace my frobt hub with the axle still attached


if the nut is stuck , way not get expert help.

it will come of in the right hands (heat, and impact gun)

or

heat axle to about 200F. to 300f

the as it cools hit it with penetration oil.

as it cools it may suck in the oil (physics trick)

and now the impact gun. no shop air, makes hard work on any cars.

so if no shop air, use a 1/2 drive or more breaker bar.

and use a pipe extenson, most 1/2 will snap at over 150lbs.

so 3/4" works better

but the impact gun works best.

you can youtube this > why not do that.?

here is first google hit on hubs

tell my how would you pass the hole hub

thru the small, hole in the knuckle spindle.

you going to buy a whole new axle and knuckle.

Having a hard time installing the passenger side cv because of the clip moving when i try to put it in on a 2000 mazda millenia s.


Hello
Please explain what clip you refer to, the snap ring that holds the CV to the axle shaft? If this is the case do you have the proper snap ring pliers and the area around the clip is clean and free of grease? There is really no "magic solution to this other than having the proper tools and having the skill to use it.

How do I remove an axle from a cv joint


Use a vise,to put the axle in,and pull,holding pressure on the knuckle(cv)and hit it with a hammer pretty hard,there is a snap ring that will be holding it in,and this will allow the axle to come out of the knuckle.

How to replace front wheel hub 2001 cavalier


remove the wheel. remove the brake caliper and brake rotor. if the car has abs, unplug the connector and undo the clip from the knuckle. remove the axle nut. tap on the end of the axle with a soft faced hammer until it begins to move back, being careful not to damage the threads on the axle. remove the 3 bolts on the backside of the hub that hold it onto the knuckle. use a hammer with a chisel, or an air hammer if available to free the hub assembly from the knuckle. reverse for install. dont forget to torque the axle nut to spec.

Any help on replacing the drivers side cv joint


remove the large nut on the end of the axle, unbolt the strut from (tie it out of the way with bailing wire, avail from any hardware store) the steering knuckle, pull the steering knuckle out of the way while pushing the axle stub inward and out of the knuckle, once the axle is free of the steering knuckle the axle just snaps out of the transmission, this can really be a bear, but it does just snap in and out, it uses what is called an internal snap ring to retain it into the transmission, u might also want to replace the axle seal as it most likely will suffer damage when u pull the axle out.
