Have you greased it thoroughly? If yes then try this:  With the front wheels off the ground and the gearbox in park put the shaft in; when it's almost blocked ask someone to rotate/shake the other wheel a little in both directions, it will be enough to unblock it in short steps.

It is not uncommon for this to happen. Take some wheel bearing or other heavy grease and pack the end with the c clip with the grease as to hold it in place then gently place the shaft into the transmission and push until it clicks into place and then you should be home free. Let me know if you need anything further.

    thanks for getting back to me. There was no c clip on the old one or the new one. I did pack it with grease. I can only get it on a smidgen and then i cant push it any more.

    I apologize. I was for some reason thinking you were working on a front wheel drive axle. Inspect the splines for any damage. If there are any burs on the shaft or the t-case. File it down if necessary.

If you are talking about the splines that go into the hub ,for the wheel,then it should not be that hard to do,you may have got the wrong part,or the part is defective,make sure the size of the shaft,at that end are the same,and it has the same amount of splines,it should just slide right in,with no problem,so make sure it is the right shaft.

    Ok,and make sure there is no bur on it,keeping it from going in,and that the size is correct also.

  • vanzee1 Jul 05, 2010

    okay just checked. Same amount of splines. The new one looks identical to the old one. I just can't seem to get it to go on all the way. Do i have to use a hammer or something to tap it in? I assumed like you said, that it would just slide in but it's not. ( im referring to the side that goes towards the engine)

  • vanzee1 Jul 05, 2010

  • Ronny Bennett Sr.
    Ronny Bennett Sr. Jul 05, 2010

  • vanzee1 Jul 05, 2010

_i need to replace the intermediate shaft on the drivers side how do i get the old one out?


Girlfriend had a New Yorker with an intermediate shaft, but like most of them it drove the front passenger side wheel. When it went out instead of trying to find another one, which I found you can't, I just bought the right side front drive shaft for the version of the car which did not have the intermediate shaft. The big Chrysler one step down from the New Yorker. So she had a standard left side drive shaft and much longer drive shaft for the passenger side. As I recall there was a small bracket which held the intermediate shaft bearing which had to be removed and discarded. It worked just fine until the rear axle beam rotted through, you can't find those either, and she had to junk it.

The knuckle has to be separated from the lower control arm and pulled out to install. Did you compair the two shafts? You might have one that is boxed wrong.
