Question about 1997 Toyota Camry
97 toyota camry CE; removing the drivers side front axle assembly from the trans-axle. The passenger-side extracted easily.
I decided to call the local/regional non-official Toyota repair business on the off-chance that they would tell me how and why. They were very kind and obliged me. There is a serious amount of resistance on the driver-side axle due to a 'round' wire circlip embedded in a groove in the spline-end that is in the transaxle. It will release if enough prying/wedging effort is applied to the black cv housing...with care not to damage the aluminum transaxle case. I used any convienent bolt-head in the case as a fulcrum, and a stout prybar/flat-blade screwdriver as a lever. With a flushed-red face, a deep gutteral grunt, and a mighty heave, the axle gave up the fight and slid out like a good bowel movement. I regret that I could not use your services, but I have no credit cards. And the fact that $9 at this time is about enough gas for me to run for a week. Every penny counts out here in the wilds of western Montana. Thanks for being there, regardless. I will refer to you in the future when I am back on my feet. Warm regards. Michael aka peterjmoose.
