Remove the wheel, the castle nut in the axle, then break calliper and place it out of the way, carfull not to damage the brake line. It is usualy held down with a ten mil. bolt on the control arm. You dont have to remove the line from the calliper. remove the lower shock bolts, sway bar, stearing arm. I have always been able to press down the lower control arm enough to work the axle out of the hub. Carfully pry the other end from the transmission with a tool, or hefty screwdriver. Becarful not to damage the axle seals on the trans. I ussualy yank out the axle on my old cars.

This is quite a simple task. you need to remove the wheel, the axle nut (outside end of axle, center of rotor), and the lower ball joint. when the ball joint is seperated, you can swing the whole steering assembly to the side. tap on the end of the axle, being careful not to damage the threads, and pull out of the steering knuckle assembly. to remove the axle from the transmission, you should be able to pull it out. if it is stubborn, use a prybar to pry it out. installation is reverse of disassembly. when reassembling, you need to torque the axle nut properly. sorry! but i do not have that spec on hand, it does sometimes come in the new axle box. they are aproximately 170 ft lbs. hope this is helpful, and good luck!

Can you remove the driver side cv axle from a 2005 Chevy asteo van AWD permenanlry


The CV axle stub (end with the axle nut on it) supports the wheel bearing, removing the axle then driving on it would cause the bearing to wear prematurely. I would not recommend this. The front differential is also sealed by the cv assembly, removing it would cause the diff fluid to leak out . CV shafts for this van run $50-80. I would replace if it is bad, instead.

How do I remove the front left Cv Axle?


To remove the driver side cv axle:
place a large flathead screwdriver between the transaxle housing and the axle. Then place a chisel behind the screwdriver. The order will be: transaxle housing, chisel, flat screwdriver, axle.
Then give the chisel a hit or two with a hammer and it should pop out with ease.

My front differential is leaking!


I cannot see it, but I am guessing that you need to replace your axle seal. To do this,you have to pull your CV shaft out. Remove the tire, remove the caliper from the top of the rotor. Using a hammer on the back, remove the rotor. Take off the spindle (axle) nut, separate the axle (CV shaft) from the hub. Replace seal. It should pop right out. Good luck!

raise vehicle, remove wheel(s), take off your brake caliper(s) (two bolts). hold caliper in place with wire/string out of the way careful with brake line (you don't want to damage that(don't actualy remove the brake line from the caliper either) . separate steering knuckle from strut. (two large bolts on the strut) you may need to separate tie rod end from steering knuckle as well or if you can just push it far enough to the side, then remove the cotter pin from end of cv axle its the huge nut in the center of the wheel hub. then you remove the nut from the cv axle, now you're able to remove the wheel side of cv axle. do so by bending the cv at the (outermost boot and pushing out on the steering knuckle,there are teeth between the two you will have to line up when installing. next is the tricky part getting it out of the transaxle. you'll want a rubber mallet & long flat head screw driver to carefully tap the cv with the mallet while very carefully prying with the screwdriver. (small prybar prefered.cv is held in by a circlip basically a small circular piece of metal thats too big for the hole its in. once you get the cv seperated from the transaxle/transmission. remove it from vehicle and install in reverse order of removal. making sure all teeth line up and the cv clips firmly into trans. very important put in a new cotter pin when you get the cv though the hub and nut very tight . good luck (repair based on 93 eclipse gs 1.8l manual trans. other models similar.)
hope this is helpful. Good Luck ; )
