SOURCE: 4wd to 2wd

Ok i'm no expert but if you're trying to get the front axles out you will need to take the hubs apart and it should all disconnect somewhere around the cv's. If you take your time and think about what you're doing it won't be that hard a job.

Alternativly the simple solution is to leave the front end complete and only remove the front propshaft. By doing this and just leaving the hubs disengaged none of the front end will turn and you will have 2wd. This option also means that if you come accross a cheap transfer case later on down the track you won't have to worry about putting the front end back together.

Hope thats some help to you. - Neil

SOURCE: remove front axle from differential on 2003 dodge ram

That works fine on a relatively new vehicle but one that has run in salt etc you'll save a lot of time if you remove the steering knuckle completey by separating lower ball joint and outer tie rod end ball joint and bring the whole steering knuckle to a bench to separate the hub/bearing. Soak everything with penetrant, loosen the bolts a few turns and try hitting right on the bolt heads. I also made a very sharp wedge from a chisel and rammed it hard on the other side to seoarate the hub. It will finally come apart then you'll see all the **** that was binding it due to an alumininum knuckle re-acting with a steel hub. Clean the hole and grease everything and fit new bearings

Here is the easiest way . take a 14mm socket and extentsion and place it on the bolts and place againt your axle tube and start your truck and turn your wheel against it instead of pounding you will use your powersteering like a press to get your hub out its quicker and less strenous than pounding on the bolts ive done this many times i even made a extentsion for it i use a 14mm 1/2 drive shallow socket and a extension thats about 4 inches long i know im posting late on this one but if it helps anyone out then great

Ford f150, drive shaft from transfer box to cv axle slides out, what is supposed to hold this in place, front passenger side, 4wd 1999.


It is held in place by an internal snap ring. It sounds like you may have a worn transmission case where the snap ring snaps in. Other issue like suspension modifications can cause thwe axles to pull out as well.

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.

Transfer case troubleshooting


no year.????
what are tires touching , ice, nah, dirt? must we guess?????
its and offroad vehicle so we need that. data.
both front tires have zero torque? to the ground or what.?

you can check this out on jack stands.
put it in 4wd and make sure the front drive shaft spins, does it.>?
yes, good, no then transfer case
yes then front axle lock failure. the FSM covers all this.
my wanglers all have part time 4wd drive. not AWD.
so do the testing on dirt or damage the transfer case.
wind up is bad.
the car has no center differential. so do not drive it on pavement ice free. in 4wd. or bam, bad happens.

I have a 96 chevy 4x4 and my front wheels aren't pulling. i replaced the acuator and still nothing. 4x4 light flashes in 4L and 4H. what could be the problem. is there auto locking hubs on that model...


no there is no auto locking hubs. 96 chevys have a ifs (independent front suspension) this give it more ground clearance but does not have lock out hubs, the cv axles go into the front differential an spin freely until you put it in 4wd, how this works is your transfercase spins the drive shaft that goes into the front differential an while you put it in 4wd it sends power to the actuator to lock the front differential. if your front end isnt pulling you either popped your 1 of your cv axles but if you did this you would know because it makes a very loud thunking noise while you're driving, my guess is you have a short thats not sending power to the actuator. check to see if the wiring harnesses are connected and check if the fuse that operates the 4wd in the cab of the truck is not blown. also actuators for these trucks are horrible they go out alot. also you can try reversing a few feet putting your truck in neutral an then try putting it in 4wd

  • Lift the rear end of the Explorer with a floor jack. Place jack stands underneath the rear axle, by the leaf spring perches and lower the Explorer onto the stands. Pull the floor jack out of the way. mark both ends of the shaft for reinstalation.

  • 2

    Crawl under the rear end and unbolt the universal joint retaining straps from the rear differential yoke.

  • 3

    Pull the drive shaft and universal joint away from the rear differential yoke by hand.

  • 4

    Remove the retaining rings that hold the universal joint into the drive shaft with needle-nose pliers.

  • 5

    Support the end of the drive shaft on a jack stand and place the socket extension against the universal joint cap in the drive shaft yoke. Tap the socket extension with the dead blow hammer until the universal joint cap comes out of the yoke.

  • 6

    Clean the sockets in the drive shaft yoke with the tip of a pocket screwdriver to remove any built up road dirt or other gunk.

  • 7

    Remove two of the caps from the opposite ends of the replacement universal joint. Be careful to keep the bearings in the caps.

  • 8

    Position the replacement universal joint in the drive shaft yoke and put the cap on the outside. Use the socket extension and dead blow hammer to tap the cap through the yoke far enough to expose the retaining ring groove. Put the retaining ring on that side with the needle-nose pliers. Repeat this for the other cap.

  • 9

    Move the drive shaft back up to the differential yoke, line up the new universal joint with the differential yoke and reinstall the universal joint retaining straps with the wrench. Lower the rear end off the jack stands with the floor jack.

    Where do you place the jack when changing a front tire on a 2001 ford excursion


    First step. be sure that the vehicle is on a level surface with the transmission in Park and parking brake set. Chock the wheels if possible.
    For a 4 Wheel Drive (4WD), a flat on passenger's side, position the jack so that it cradles the front axle. For a flat on the driver's side, position the jack so that it fits into the notched area of the 4WD differential. For a 2 Wheel Drive, position the jack so that the jack cradles the large pin that protrudes out of the cross-member to the front of car. Hopefully, this will FixYa problem!

    • Body structure other than approved jacking points
    • Bumpers
    • Fuel lines
    • Fuel tank

    CAUTION: Place a piece of hardwood or a rubber block between each axle stand and the jacking point to avoid damaging the body / component. If any damage occurs to the washers on the front mounting points of the rear sub-frame, then the washers must be replaced. Carefully lower jack until vehicle sits securely on axle stands.

    WARNING: Always support the vehicle on axle stands when using a jack. Before commencing work on underside of vehicle re-check security of vehicle on stands.

    Reverse procedure when removing vehicle from stands.

    Wheel-free lift
    The following warning must be read before attempting to lift the vehicle.

    WARNING: The vehicle cannot be supported safely in a wheel-free condition using the wheel-free facility of a four post ramp, and under no circumstances must this method be employedA wheel free condition may only be achieved on a four post ramp by raising each end of the vehicle and positioning axle stands beneath the recommended customer jacking points.

    CAUTION: Place a piece of hardwood or a rubber block between each axle stand and the jacking point to avoid damaging any components. If the propeller shafts are to be removed, select NEUTRAL in the main gearbox. WARNING: The front and rear suspension lower arms must NOT be used as lifting / jacking points.
