Hello there:
the easiest way to do this would be to jack the right side of the car up and take the tire off remove the carter key from the axle then remove the axle nut then pull the rotor away from the spline and let it slide out then you can take a pry bar and get net to the transmission and the back side of the haslf shaft and pry outward you should feel it pop out of the transmission install in reverse... hope this helps sincerly D.Jones please give me a review

1994 geo prizm replaced drive axle and wheel bearings and it sounds like the drver side axle is binding or broken or not in all the way it makes a loud knocking from the driverside like the axle is hitting...

I see there are two different axles listed, with and without abs. One is slightly longer than the other. You could have the wrong axle or it could be something inside the transmission. I doubt the passenger side axle would affect the driver side.
Can you raise the front end and make the noise with the car parked ?

Front passenger side broken axle

Need to replace the drive shaft. Aftermarket parts work fine. The biggest issue is removing inside connection to the half shaft. The clip ring tension is stronger than the boot holding the inboard joint on the drive shaft. To break it loose get a large screw driver and from under the car in front hit the inboard joint hard several times until it over comes the clip ring. Remember... always use jack stands when working under the car.

Trying to change a bad alternator that is on the bottom

must be a v-6?

You will need to remove the drive axle on the passenger side in order to get enough room to pull the alternator out. Its not to bad to do.

Separate the lower ball joint from the passenger front knuckle.

remove the axle nut and push the axle out of the hub.

remove the two bolts that hold the carrier bearing on the drive axle to the support bracket.

You will then be able to remove the entire axle from the vehicle. Have a drip pan ready to catch any trans fluid that may come out of the opening the axle goes into on the transmission.

Once the axle is out of the way you can remove the three bolts that hold the alternator in place. the top one only needs to be loose as the hole in the alt should be sloted. Unplug the connector and remove the battery cable from the alt. It will be a rubix cube but there will be a position that the alt will need to be in that will allow the alt drop come out of the opening left by the removal of the drive axle.

Clicking noise down by the front tires.

check your axles, for an open cv boot, this clicking is on straigth or turning, if turming to your rigth you hear noise to be louder on your left then your left axle is bad, do the same to your left and if noise exists then your rigth axle is bad.good luck

Inner spline will not disengage from the diff on the drivers side

Hi, its a tough one, but it will come out. try to use a pry bar with a slightly bent tip, you miHT have to turn axle till one of the "bells"is in a reachable place to put the tip between the axle and the trans case. prybar should have its length towards rear of car, maybe add a 3 to four foot pipe over it to add leverage. if that fails, then you have to remove the passenger axle, using a railroad spike or old 1/2 drive extension, you can drive out the driver side axle from the passenger side axle housing.

I have a 97 trans sport and when i drive it it pops real loud, and almost feels like passenger side front end jumps

check your front wheel drive axles/half shafts, see if the rubber boots that cover the bearings are not torn or missing.. sounds like you might need to replace the axle/half shaft on the passengers side
