Question about Chevrolet Impala

1 Answer

I am replacing my CV axle assemblies on a 2000 Impala LS. On th driver side, the innner joint will not come out of the trans. I have tried prybars, screwdrivers, crowbars, etc. I actually broke a prybar trying to get it out. Do you have any suggestions? I have thought about heating it up with a propane torch to try aand "break the seal". I am at a loss and I can not finish the project with out getting this old part out of my trans. Thank you for any advice you may have!

Cant get the cv axle out of my 99 regal gs. On the new axle theres a chip on end of shaft go into trans. Is that whats keepin the old ine from coming out


Yup... You have to get a prybar in behind the inner joint and give it a push in order to release the axle assembly. Sometimes it takes 2 prybars to snap it free. There are special tools/wedges for doing this

How do i change the front axle on a 2004 impala


You will need a large socket to fit the nut on the end of the CV axle shaft. You will also need a breaker bar to remove this nut. You will need a torque wrench capable of achieving the correct torque when replacing the nut on the replacement shaft. You will need a relatively heavy (3-pound) hammer and a pry bar to remove the axle shaft from the transmission housing. You should break the axle nut loose prior to raising the vehicle off the ground as it is very tight and may not come loose easily once raised. If you use an impact wrench then the need to do this before raising the vehicle is not as great. You need to raise the vehicle on jack stand(s). Remove the wheel from the side you are replacing. Remove the brake caliper and rotor assembly as well. Remove the axle nut. The axle must be pulled free of the hub spline by pushing it out backwards. This is not usually possible without either (1) separating the lower ball joint from the lower control arm, or (2) unbolting the lower control arm assembly from the subframe and pulling it outward and to the side.
Be careful when pushing and pulling on the axle shaft. The outer CV joint is fixed, but the inner joint can be pulled out too far and become separated. This will make removal much more difficult. Once you have freed the outer CV joint from the hub, then you need to use the prybar and hammer to tap the inner joint out of the transaxle. It snaps in place and will take a few attempts to achieve. Be careful if trying to pry on the transaxle housing as it is cast metal and can break easily. Once you have the inner joint free you can remove the shaft. There may be some transmission fluid leak from the seal when you remove the shaft. Insert the new shaft into the transaxle. Push it in to snap it into place. You can pull back about an inch or two to help get the force necessary to pop it in, but again be careful not to overextend the inner joint. Once the inner joint is in place, slide the outer joint back through the hub splines. Reconnect the ball joint/lower control arm. Replace the axle nut (use the one supplied with the new shaft. Torque to proper specifications. Replace the rotor/caliper/wheel.

Show me hoe to repair a cv joint for a Saturn Vue 2006?


Buy the shaft assembly instead of trying to change the cv joint on your shafts. They aren't much more expensive and will save a ton of time. Remove wheel, brakes, rotors, axle nut. Slip the shaft inward and press out if the hub. Then simply pop it out of the other end. There is a retainer clip on the differential side that springs in and out of place. A prybar or long screw driver helps pop it past the detent.

Can not get axle out of trans axle, passenger side.


Put a pry bar or large screwdriver between the transaxle case and the CV joint housing, and try to pop the axle out. Be careful of the axle seal in the transaxle case-if distorted, it will need replacing. Shops use a slide hammer with a forked end that fits around the CV joint housing to pop out the axles-if you use a prybar, you can usually pop them out. There is a circlip near the end of the axle splines that fits in a groove inside the transaxle- a little force pushes the circlip out of the groove, and axle is free to come out.

Replace bent cv shaft


most shops charge 149.95 including the part but if you want to do this yourself here goes. remove the wheel on the side your replacing. remove the center big nut. (need impact or reall big breaker bar) unbolt the lower ball joint get a big prybar and insert it to where you can push down on the lower control arm. unbolt the tie rod end and smack it a few times to make it dislodge. smack the side of the ball joint with your big hammer a couple times then push down on the lower control arm till the ball joint separates from its stud. then tap on the end of the cv axle and pull out on the wheel assembly till the axle releases from the wheel assembly. using a smaller prybar get on the ground and get behind the big part of the axle near the transmission as you pull you need to pry between the transmission and the axle to get it to pop loose. put a drain pan under the transmission to catch the little bit of fluid that will come out. reinstall in reverse order. good luck

How to replace a CV joint 2000 Cavalier Drivers side


Buy the right CV axle. Raise right front of vehicle. Remove wheel. use a lugnut and washers to secure brake rotor so that it is not flopping and trapping rust behind. Remove axle nut. Loosen nuts from outer tie rod end stud and lower ball joint stud almost all the way off, but do not remove them completely. Seperate the studs from knuckles by striking each knuckle with a ball peen hammer. After the tie rod and lower ball joint are seperated from the spindle knuckles, pry down on lower control arm and push end of axle through hub toward transaxle until hub and spindle assembly is free from axle/CV joint. Place drain pan under transmission. Carefully place pry bar between innner CV joint and transmission and pop axle assembly loose. Install new axle in reverse of the dissassembly.
