The cross-shaft goes in so that the hole in it lines up with the bolt hole in the carrier. Place one spider gear in contact with the side gears on one side and the other on the opposite side, one at the top, one at the bottom. Rotate the gears into place. before pushing the pin through, put your finger inside each bore and make sure that the spider gear shims are also aligned so the shaft can pass through without interference. then after it's in, align the bolt hole and replace it. Don't forget to put the axle clip back before putting the pin in.

Which Axle Shaft Fits In Chevy Blazer 1998 LS


You have to figure out which differential you have. There are two versions based on the size of the ring gear and an optional third version for a wide track off road model.
The ring gear sizes are 8.5 inch and 7 5/8 inch. The wide track option is ZR2.
The 8.5 inch gear uses a cover plate that is 10 bolts and round, the 7 5/8 gear uses a plate that is also 10 bolts but more square. You should be able to look the gasket up online or check with your auto parts store to match it up to your plate. If neither gasket looks like your plate, you may have the wide track option. The option sticker is usually in the glove box.
The 28 inch axle is normally used with the smaller ring gear, and the 30 inch is used on the 8.5.

I cant get the front hub assembly off my 03 buick rendevous


Items/Tools needed:

35mm or 1 3/8" axle socket
3/4 or 19mm socket for lug nuts or lug wrench
15mm socket for brake caliper and bracket
13mm socket for wheel bearing bolts (extentions as well)
Breaker bar or impact wrench to remove lug nuts and axle nut (Note: Do not use impact driver to install axle nut).
Torque wrench for axle nut
Hub puller - Optional
Hammer

Directions

1. Jack the appropriate side of the car up. Make sure the rear wheels are blocked and/or set the parking brake. Use a jackstand to support vehicle at subframe for safety.
2. Remove wheel.
3. Remove brake caliper and bracket.
4. Remove rotor.
5. Using 35mm axle socket, remove axle nut, turn counterclockwise. You will either need an impact or a long breaker bar. They are installed with a lot of torque or may be rusted out or corrroded.
6. Push the axle back as far as possible. It won't come all the way out or through the hub, but will become loose. You can either get a tool that will push it out like a hub puller, or just use a hammer making sure not to hit the axle shaft threads and damage them. Put the axle nut back on the axle shaft so it is flush with the top. Then place 35mm axle nut socket on the axle nut and tap on the 35mm socket with the hammer not the threads on the axle shaft spline.
7. Disconnect the wheel sensor connector and then remove hub side connector from the bracket (unclip).
8. Take a 13mm socket with extensions as needed and remove the 3 bolts on the backside of the bearing around the axle. Be sure to use PBBlaster to help loosen the bolts.
9. The hub/bearing should come loose without need needing a hub puller. Be sure to note the sheet metal spacer between the hub and spindle with also has the bracket for the wheel sensor connector.
10. Double check both parts (hubs) to make sure they match.
11. Lube the axle shaft splines with good quality bearing grease before installing the hub. Clean off any old grease and crud first.
12. Install the hub assembly with the wires from the bearing at the bottom. Line up hub splines with axle shaft splines and push in on hub. Note: Don't forget that sheet metal plate between the spindle and wheel bearing. Note: Make sure the wheel sensor wires don't get pinched by the axle shaft.
13. Install the 3 13mm bolts to 96ft lbs. Service manual recommends replacing with new ones. Some hubs like AC Delco will come with new bolts which have threadlocker.
14. Install the axle nut. As tightened down it will pull the driveshaft the rest of the way in. Torque axle nut to GM specs of 159 ft-lbs or the figure specified by the hub manufacturer. It is recommended to use a new axle nut but not necessary.
15. Install the rotor, brackets and caliper. Torque caliper bracket bolts to 137 ft-lb and caliper pin bolts to 63 ft-lb.
16. Install the connector to the sheet metal bracket and reconnect both connectors.
17. Install the wheel. Torque lug nuts in a star pattern at 100 ft-lbs each.
18. Road test car and ensure any ABS and TRAC OFF light are off.

How do I remove the rear axle


The rear axle shaft?? Or the entire axle? I'm going to go with the axle shaft. Secure the vehicle. Loosen the lug nuts. Jack it up. Take the wheel and tire off. Remove the caliper and/or bracket. Remove the rotor. Place a pan under the rear differential cover. Remove the rear differential cover. Spin the axle shaft to reveal the center pin. Locate the 8mm-5/16 bolt that holds the center pin in place. Remove that bolt. Slide the center pin out, BUT DON'T TURN THE AXLE SHAFTS WHILE ITS OUT! Push the axle shaft in from the outer portion (where the wheel goes). A "C" clip will fall out inside of the differential. Pull the axle shaft out. Slide the center pin back in. Replace the 8mm-5/16 locking bolt and spin it a few times to keep everything in place.

I have honda city 1994 model, pls advice me on how to change front wheel axle/cv joint/boot thanks madaan


  • Loosen the lug nuts (turning counter-clockwise) to finger tight on the front wheel with the damaged CV joint. Buy, borrow or rent a CV nut socket. Some auto parts stores will sell you one for about $30 and refund your money when you return it. Because the CV nut in the center of the wheel hub is locked in place with a safety tab, it is loosened initially with a long breaker bar or a hollow pipe placed over the ratchet handle to increase the torque needed to break the nut free. Loosen to finger tightness.
  • 2 Set safety brakes and jack up the front of the car toward the side of the damaged CV joint using at least a 2 1/2-ton jack. Both the car and the jack should be on a hard, level surface and the lifting point must be a load-bearing member on the chassis or engine cradle. Place two jack stands under the front end and slowly lower the car onto the jack stands so the car chassis is fully resting on the stands. Now, pull out the jack and move it out of the way.
  • 3 Remove the wheel lug nuts and pull off the wheel from the hub. If it doesn't cooperate, kick the bottom of the tire sidewall with the back of your heel or the flat of your hand to dislodge it. Unscrew the center CV nut. To dislodge the male spline outboard end of the CV joint that fits into the female spline in the back of the wheel hub, take the CV nut and screw it back on three or four turns, then strike it with a hammer to partially disengage the splines.
  • 4 Remove the ball joint stud on the lower control arm from its socket in the spindle behind the wheel hub, after you remove a locking bolt, cotter pin or other device that holds the ball joint stud that protrudes from the lower control arm. Then, wedge a pry bar (called a pickle fork) between the tie rod and sway bar. To gain greater leverage, insert the pry bar handle into a length of pipe and apply downward pressure to remove the ball joint stud from the spindle.
  • 5 Remove the CV joint and shaft. With the lower ball joint disconnected from the wheel spindle, the hub can be moved to the side just enough to remove the outer CV joint from the spindle socket in the back of the wheel hub. Do not stretch the brake line that is attached to the wheel brake cylinder as you move the hub aside. With the outboard end of the shaft free of the wheel, pull the shaft straight out from the transmission housing. Because of the labor involved with repairing or replacing CV joints, it's more cost effective to simply replace the entire shaft assembly including the two CV joints and boots.
  • 6 Install the new shaft and CV joint assembly. Clean the transmission seal that came off the old unit; pack it with grease and place it over the inboard spline of the new unit before inserting new shaft into transmission. Make sure splines are lined up before tapping the other end of the shaft with a hammer to seat it in its socket. Carefully insert the other end of the shaft back into the wheel hub and loosely thread on the new CV bolt that came with the assembly.
  • 7 Reinstall the ball joint stud into the spindle by re-inserting the pry bar between the tie rod and the sway bar and leveraging down the lower control arm with the ball joint stud positioned just under the spindle hole. Then release pressure on the pry bar so the ball joint stud re-seats into the spindle. Push the wheel hub all the way onto the shaft spline to seat and torque down the CV nut tight. With a flat head screwdriver tap the lip of the new CV nut into the groove cut into the screw end. Now, re-attach the ball joint locking bolt, put the tire back, replace lug nuts and tighten. Remove the car from the jack stands and finish tightening the tire lug nuts.

    How to remove axel on 2002 cadillac deville


    this procedure is for replacing the axle bearing, it has all the info u need to do whatever it is u are doing with the axle removed.

    Instructions Things You'll Need:
    • Floor jack
    • Jack stands
    • Axle puller
    • Set of 3/8-inch drive sockets
    • 3/8-inch drive ratchet
    • Needle nose pliers
    • Set of ¼-inch drive sockets
    • ¼-inch drive ratchet
    • Hammer
    • Lug wrench
    • Tube of RTV silicone
    • 2 bottles of rear axle oil
    • Bucket
    1. Step 1 Raise and support the rear of the vehicle. Remove the wheels. Remove the rear cover on the third member or axle. Place the bucket under the rear to catch the fluid. Remove the brake drums if the vehicle has drum brakes.
    2. Step 2 Rotate the outside axle until the center carrier is in a position where the small 8 mm or ¼-inch bolt is at 7 o'clock and clear of the housing so that it can be removed. This is the bolt holding the center through pin that runs through both spider gears. Position the carrier so that when the bolt is removed, the pin can be dropped straight down without contacting the housing.
    3. Step 3 Remove the center pin and lay it in the cover with its retaining bolt. Do not rotate the carrier with the pin out, since the pin is what holds the spider gears in place. If the carrier is turned, the spider gears would need to be adjusted so that they line up again with the hole for the through pin.
    4. Step 4 Push both axles in toward the carrier. This is now possible because the through-pin has been removed. This will expose the C-clips that hold the axles from coming out of the carrier. Remove the C-clips with the needle nose pliers and lay them in the pan. Pull the axles out of the housing and stand them up.
    5. Step 5 Remove the outside axle bearings and seals with the axle puller. The axle puller has several ends of different sizes; pick the one that fits through the center of the bearing. The axle puller is a sliding hammer with a T-end that can swivel. When the puller end is inserted through the bearing, rotate it slightly to get the T-end to swivel up and grab the bearing. Using the slide hammer, hammer the bearing and seal out of the housing.
    6. Step 6 Clean the housing surface where the bearing will be seated. Place the new bearing into the housing as far as it will go, and make sure it goes in straight. Place the old bearing on top of the new bearing and hit it with the hammer to drive the new bearing in. Tap it on in a circular pattern and continue until there is a resounding difference in sound as the bearing contacts the lip in the axle (it will sound more solid). Remove the old bearing.
    7. Step 7 Install the seal by tapping it carefully on four corners, avoiding the rubber part of the seal, until it is seated. Do not bend the housing or it will leak.
    8. Step 8 Install the axles and push them in all the way. Insert the C-clips on the ends of the axles and pull the axles back out to seat the C-clips in the carrier. Insert the pin back into the carrier through the spider gears and install the small retaining bolt to keep the pin in.
    9. Step 9 Clean the face of the housing and the axle cover where the gasket material will seal. Use brake cleaner or alcohol to remove all the oil from the surface to be sealed. Smear some RTV silicone sealant on the axle cover around the edge in a continuous line about a quarter of an inch thick. Allow the cover to sit until the RTV silicone sealant cures to the point that it will not transfer to the fingers when touched. The proper terminology is when it "skins," or is still wet inside but starting to dry on the outside; this way it will stay in place.

    How do i fix a driveshaft on a 1995 vw golf


    take off the wheel.
    remove the nut at the end of the axle.36mm socket or so.
    on the lower control arm there is a castle nut with a cotter pin.take out the pin and remove the castle nut.
    then with a pry bar,put pressure on the lower control arm so the ball joint is free out of the lower control arm. pull on and swing away the hub assembly until it clears the spline from the outer axle.swing the hub out of the way so the axle can be pulled out of the transmission.
    tie it out of the way with a tie down cord.
    using a prybar,separate the inner axle knuckle from the transmission.
    there is a spring on the end of the inner spline,some are quite tight on there.
    remove the axle.

    installation is reverse of the above.
    first the shaft is put into the transmission, then you will have to hammer it in until it "sets". use a soft material like wood on the end of the axle .do not hit the spline directly with a hammer,it will damage the splines!
    make sure not to damage the transmission seal where the drive shaft goes into.you will lose a little transmission fluid and will have to top it up.once the shaft is installed,turn it and make sure it meshes proper inside the transmission. then move the hub into place over the driveshaft.tighten the axle shaft to vw torque spec.
    install the lower ball joint into the control arm and tighten the castle nut to vw torque spec.and install a new cotter pin.
    install the wheel nuts and torque to spec.
    alot of heroes out there use a straight impact gun and that can bend rims,rotors and cause other problems.TORQUE them.they are 80lb ft for a reason, not 300 lb/ft like an air gun.a torque extension bar is perfect and an 80 lb stick is about 20 dollars.
    it takes a special stick to measure the vw tranny fluid if it is an automatic.a dealer will be able to check it unless you want the vw special tool for that.
    tools needed will be an impact gun,axle nut socket,torque wrench,socket set with 1/2 inch drive,36"pry bar,jack stands,and a trouble light .
    it takes about half an hour to do if you do alot of them.
    go slow do it right and it may take a couple hours,but you will feel good about it.

    Rear Wheel Bearings - Diagram


    It would help a lot if I knew what kind of vehicle you have!!! If you have a vehicle with a rear differential, the diff cover must be removed. You will find a small bolt on the left side of the carrier that retains a large pin that goes through the spider gears. To remove axle, remove that small bolt, slide the pin out, then push the axle in. Remove the "c" clip on the axle end and slide axle out. DO NOT turn diff after removing pin or spider gears will fall out. Sometimes the small bolt is sheared off & when you remove it the end remains in the carrier. If this happens, you need to drill (very small bit) it out & remove with easy out or other removal tool.
    If these instructions don't apply to what you have, it's because you did not say what you are working on!!!
