Hi there,

Hold a small hammer against the side of the trans to act asa pivot, then engage a pry-bar into the notch in the axle stub and just pop it out.
The passenger side axle can be 100 times more difficult than the dirvier's side because the center shaft bearing often freezes (rusts) into the rear motor mount bracket. This requires removing the rear motor mount with the axle then beating the axle loose with a hammer.

post further comments for more help or information....

Good Luck!!

Thanks

Cant get bolts out of cv axel support braket in a mazda 626


This is a bracket mount that has the axle shaft going thru it on the passenger side . the axle must be removed from mount before it can be removed . there is a single bolt that presses against the axle shaft bearing and a snap ring that holds the bearing in the mount once removed the axle will slide out .

What tools do i need to remove a 1996 lexus es 300 cv axle from the transmission


You will need a lug wrench for the wheel, a jack, a jack stand, 14mm socket and ratchet for disconnecting the lower ball joint, a 32mm socket and impact wrench for the axle nut, a dead-blow (no-bounce) hammer to tap axle from steering knuckle, and then there are two options.

Left (driver) side: a pry bar to pop the axle from the differential (pry between diff. housing and axle knuckle. This can be really stuck so don't be afraid to put some power to it!)

Right (pass.) side: snap ring pliers to remove snap ring from carrier mount (rear engine mount houses this carrier bearing), and i think a 14mm socket or wrench to loosen the jam bolt that keeps the bearing outer race from spinning.

Good luck and be safe!!

Nick.

Front axle removal


remove the axle stub retaining nut, disconnect the lower ball joint, disconnect the tie rod end, pull the spindle out and away from the axle stub tapping on the end of the stub if necessary with a hammer (just be careful) to pull the bearing hub loose from the axle stub. after separating the outside slide under vehicle (make sure the car is on jack stands and the rear wheels are blocked from rolling and very secure before crawling under any vehicle) look at where the inside axle stub goes into the transmission. you'll need a good sized pry bar to pop the axle out of the transmission. work the pry bar in between the inside axle stub and a good thick part of the transmission and pry the axle away from the trans., there is a snap ring on the inside axle stub that internally retains the axle you have to pry hard enough to compress the snap ring into the axle groove which will release the axle for removal. it's not a bad idea to replace the axle seal in the transmission while you're there but if it's not leaking and you don't damage it in the removal of the axle it's not necessary. measure and compare the new axle to the old one, it may have some differences in the shaft like missing vibration dampeners but if it's the same length and both axle stubs match the old ones in size and number of teeth you should be good. when you install the new axle line it up by hand and slide it in as far as possible manually then tap it in with a wooden or rubber mallet. if you don't have a mallet use a scrap of wood to protect the new axle stub threads and tap it in with a hammer. after you feel the snap ring collapse and the axle slide in tap on it gently to make sure it's fully seated then grab the inner axle stub and tug on it to insure the snap ring is in place. then reassemble in reverse order of removal making sure all nuts and bolts are tightened properly and all retainers are in place. good luck

Pass cv joint will not come out of carier, removed clip, what next ? 97 toyota avalon...


This is for the removal of the passenger side cv joint. If the Avalon carrier is like the Camry you will have to remove the snap ring and the set bolt. You have 2 choices to get the carrier bearing out,(1) remove bracket, and take it out with the cv joint as yiu noticed the bolts are in tight spot (2) You will need a torch with a rose bud tip and put a lot of heat (red hot)on the cast iron bracket and be in postion to hit the cv joint bearing (on the tire side of carrier) with a hammer and drive it out. This is the way I prefer but, take caution with flame. Do step 2 only if you are planning on replacing the cv joint anyway.

Procedure for changing bent r rear axle on 1997


if it has the four bolts that have a flange piece on it also then its just a unbolt and pull one.another sign of the unbolt/pull type is there is no removable cover on the back of the diff. i never undo nothing but the 4 bolts. i leave twn in but real loose so when i yank on the axle it wont break nothing when it cuts loose all of a sudden.

You might have to hit the joint the wrong way to reveal a c-clip on the shaft to remove first.
