Do you have to remove the snap ring on 1994 saturn sl 2 to get axel out

The left axle is a little tricky I use a crow bar and tuck the curved end in behind the cup of the axle then look for a good sturdy position on the transmission and do a quick snap on the crowbar and the axle pops out. Be ready with an oil pan if you did not drain the transmission oil as it will come out. Also Saturn transmissions get serviced with dexron III even the manual transmissions. When reinstalling the new axle place the transmission end in first and get the snap ring to hold before re-assembling the rest of it. Is best to insert the end of the axle into the transmission, then hold the axle straight while pushing inward on the axle until you feel the cv joint bottom out inside the cup then with a dead blow hammer, strike the outer end of the cv joint and you should be able to feel the inner snap into place. To make sure that it is reach in and grab the inner axle you should not be able to pull it back out by hand. If you try to hammer on the inner cv joint during installation you take the chance of damaging the boot. And causing premature failure of the inner axle cv joint. Hope this helps.

How do you remove the front drive shaft

Remove the axle nut from the spindle, remve the spindle from the strut to allow room to remove the axle from the spindle, tap the axle out of the spindle. Once loose put a pry bar between the transmission and the axle and pry the axle out of the transmission. Might be a little hard to pry out but it will pop right out. Then to put the new one it just put it in, line it up and tap it in, be sure to torque your axle nut to the correct specifications when tightening or you will have a bad wheel bearing in no time.

I have a poulan 500ex the rightrear axle came out of transmission i pushed it back in but it keeps coming out what do I need to do to make it stay in?

check that any cv joints are not seized up and if there is a slip joint in the axle check that it is not seized up as well. Check for a circlip on the end of the axle in the transmission end that is there to keep it in the transmission. If there is supposed to be one you will see a groove at the end of the axle.

The drive shaft has completly come apart. My husband put it back together temporarliy. Does this mean we need a new transmission?

If your transmission still functions fine-you should be good. The number one cause of worn front wheel drive axle wear is from worn transmission and motor mounts. As they wear they change the position of the axle, increasing wear. I would swap out the axle and have the mounts checked.

End of cv joint wil not come out of transmission

Use a large flat-blade screwdriver, and pry with it right where the axle meets the transmission. Lever it back and forth while you pull and shake the axle. There's a c-clip style snap ring on the axle inside the transmission, so you have to work it this way to get it to pop out. Keep at it, and pull/shake like crazy while you lever with the screwdriver, and it will come out.
