Question about 1989 Chevrolet K1500

1 Answer

Ive got a 1989 k1500 and the right front inner axle slides in and out about an inch or two. so that means the spring clip isn't on the end of the axle. I'm told I can replace the clip by putting it on the axle and sliding it back in and finally tapping it in place. Is that the correct way of doing it

How do I replace my inner axle on the passenger side of my 2002 Dodge Ram 4x4 4.7L. I lent my truck out and the C clip let go of the CV axle. The intermediate axle spline is stripped and I need to change...


Lift and support front end on suitable jack stands preferably on frame. Remove right front cv axle, stub shaft, and seal. You will need to pull the right front brake caliper assembly loose and place to the side. Then remove bolts from shock and upper control arm and hub nut to do this. Next, remove axle lock actuator on passenger side of front axle. Place a drain pan underneath front diff cover and remove cover and drain axle. In the center of differential there will be an 8 mm head bolt holding spider gear cross-shaft. Remove bolt and cross-shaft only! Push inner axle in until clip clears inside of passenger spider gear. Set clip aside and push/pull axle shaft straight out to passenger side.

01' Mitsubishi Eclipse cv axle removal passenger side


The passenger side has a inner and outer shaft and you would remove the axle nut and shaft from spindle then the center bracket and bearing (two bolts against engine block), sliding out the axle assembling at that point, or jerking it out, careful not to pull on the cv axle end but rather the jack, or inner, shaft. After removal, separate the middle by hanging upside down and taking a hammer to it, striking the inner shaft while turning around. Dont hit the dust shield or seals. Install in reverse order. Quick tip: you may get around removing ball joint by only removing both strut bolts, and possibly tie rod end bolt.

How do you replace a front wheel shaft rubber boot


Split wrap around boots are not a good option. If your axle joint is in good shape rebooting is an option. It is extremely messy and often takes a special tool to install the new boot clamps. A new axle or a factory rebuilt is always a good option. Beware of local rebuilders they may short cut and not replace all the worn parts.
With the wheel on the ground take off the axle nut, jack up the car, take off the wheel, unbolt the strut, take off the caliper, pull the disc and bearing holder down, and pull the axle out the back side. Pull the axle out of the transmission and take it over to your bench. Remove the inner boot clamps, pull back the inner boot from the transmission bearing cup. There is a large ring clip holding the bearing into the cup , remove the clip and slide the inner cup off of the bearing. With a circlip plier remove the clip from the end of the shaft and slide the inner bearing off of the shaft. Now take the clamps off of the outer boot and slide the boot down the length of the shaft. Clean all of the parts thoroughly and regrease before reassembly. The new boot has to slide down the length of the shaft, from inside to out side, to be installed on the outer joint.

I have 99 zr2 pickup and where the cv shaft slides into the differential is leaking.i have the cv shaft off and i have to pull the old seal off but the axle shaft is in the way, do i have to drop the hole...


Open the bell. Take off the rear gear cover. U will loose all the fluid if any still in it so only remove some of the bolts loosen leave like 3 in around the bottom loosen them out a oil pan under the cover pry the cover off the diff leaving the 3 bolts to keep the cover from just popping off it will also help slow the rush of fluid. Once the fluid is drained remove the bolts and cover. On the inside u will se side gears. Have a helper push the axle shaft inward then u will see there is a C clip holding the axle carfully pry off the clip. Only do one side at a time. ... Then slide the shaft out where ur helper is. .. remove and replace the leaking seal. Then clean the axle. And u have to be easy sliding it in. Some times when the axle shaft is slide in u hit the end of the tube push the axle down toward the ground with variety of pressure as u push in this is tricky. But it will pop in. Then replace the clip and gentle have a helper try and pull back on the shaft. This sets the clip from falling out. Clean the bell area and scrap the old gasket off both sides if u have no replacement gasket get high heat black rtv silcone apply it to the cover or diff face and reverse the steps to install fill it with fluid and road test all this can be seen on youtube under inner axle seal repair. Good luck.

Change a cv boot on a 1996 isuzu trooper


First their are two different front axles in 1996 troopers. Isuzu changed the 4wd system from auto lock hubs to drive control axle.auto lock hube are on the older trooper's with the light and wiper switches on the dash. The same way to change both. Auto hub remove the six hex. screws slide off the hub remove the sirclip from the driveshaft. Newer hub has 6 alan-head screw's again remove them then the hubcap then the sirclip on the shaft and slide off the round spacer. Next 4 bolts from the lower balljoint and the brake's. Pull out the hub until it clear's the shaft remove the inner boot clips slide the inner boot out the shaft. Clean the grease from the end of the axle then with your fingernail feel along any of the 3 tracks in the axle and near the outer end of the track you will find a wirelike split ring slide a screwdriver under the ring and lever it off . Pull out the drive clean off the grease. You will see a sirclip on the end of the joint remove it and slide off the joint. You can replace either boot from that end. The outer joint is held on with a snap ring on the shaft inside the joint and is not easily removed need a hammer and drift to drive off the end and when removed its hard to get the snap ring on the shaft back into its place.You can change both boots from this end as well. Cheers

I can't get the radio out of the dash of my 1990 740 turbo sta wa


In order to remove the radio, first pull off the the radio knobs (tuning and volume, etc.) there is an outer knob, and an inner ring on each side, first pull off the outer knob....pull straight out- it's tight but it will come off with some hard pulling...then slide the inner ring straight off. Do the same to the other side. Use a flashlight, and look thru the knob hole, between the knob shaft and the outside edge of the knob hole, and you will see and you will see a silver spring clip. Use a slim screwdriver or pen knife to gently pry the end of the spring clip toward the center of the radio, as you try to pull the radio towards you. It will come out about 1/4 of an inch. Then do the same thing to the other side, and the radio will easily slide right out. Good luck.

How do I get the drive axle out of its transmission housing?


Yes ,it should just pop off.Have someone pull a little on it while you tap on the axle.There is an inside shaft that the outer shaft slides onto and there is a c-clip holding the two together. Sometimes the inner shaft pulls out with the outer axle if the clip doesnot release.If this happens you'll have to be carefull putting the inner shaft back in,because there is a washer at the end that may fall down and the axle willnot go back in.There is a pilot bearing at the end inside that the tip of the inner axle goes into and just before it is where the washer is.

Axle


You'll have to remove the rear diff. cover. Remove the tires and brake drums if equipped. There is an 8mm nut holding a rod in that is in the middle of the diff. After removing the set screw, the pin will want to slide out. Position the rear diff. in a way that you can see the axles clearly and still let the pin slide out. Once you remove the pin, you don't want to rotate the diff. Push the axles in to remove the "C" clips holding the axle in and slide the axle out. The "C" clip is located at the end of the inner part of the axles.
