DIY cv axle 2008 chevy aveo


Jack the vehicle up at proper jack points and lower onto jack stand or stands.remove drivers side wheel. Use needle node pliers and a screwdriver to remove the cotter pin in the axel nut and determine the size of the axel nut. It will most likely be metric 28mm to 36mm. Use an impact to remove the axel nut. Now you will need to remove one or both of the ball joints. Start with the bottom one first and hold the axel in place and pull out on the hub. After you have the hub off of the axel note the splines and how the line up. Now turn the hub so that it is out of the way. You may be able to just yank the axel out of the transmission. If it didn't come out easily you will need a crow bar to gently pry the axel out of the case. Be careful not to put too much pressure on the transmission case. It's aluminum and it will crack and break if you beat on it. Just pry gently and with the transmission in neutral ( be sure to chalk the rear wheels so the car won't run you over) slowly rotate the axel and pry until it comes out. If that doesn't work you will need to rent a slide hammer. Thread it to the free end of the axel and forcefully slide the weight out to knock the axel about of the trans. Installation is reverse. DO NOT USE A HAMMER to force the axel back in you will mushroom the threads and never get the nut on.

Remove axle


if you need to remove the axle from the spindle side then you need to take the axle nut off which you have to remove the rim n tire and it will be dead center approx 1in size nut or bigger not sure exact size

second have to remove the nut on the lower ball joint n seperate the lower control arm and strut. will need a ball joint fork which you can get at any parts store and a pry bar to push down on control arm once ball joint is broken loose to seperate the strut. this will allow you to push the axle back troungh the spindle to remove it.

last but not least where the axel goes in to the transmission you will need a small pry bar to pop it out from transmission. jus put it between axle n transmission and apply pressure till it comes out. the axel has a oring style clip which holds it in place so not able to pull it out by hand. caution when you pull the axel it will leak out some fluid so make sure you have a drain pan .

to install jus follow the process backward jus make sure the axel pops back in place securely other wise when you go to drive it you risk it poping out. good luck n hope this helps you

How do I remove the front left axle shaft on a chevy 2007


remove the axle nut first, always took the upper ball joint loose just take the nut off apply some upwards pressure and hit spindle with hammer and it will allow you to move the hub and all out enough to remove axle. the upper ball joint nut has to come off
and seperate the ball joint from the steering knuckle
then plenty of room. good-day ! then just slide axel out,or pry between axel and ****** to pop it loose, it has a locking clip on transmission side. when putting back in make sure axel is locked in ******. and do not forget to torque axel nut when done.

Are the threads on the front wheel axles left or right hand threads? having trouble undoing the nut.


Daewoo is'nt using any left hand threads on cars for sale in the USA. The front axel nut's are sussosed to be very tight, ( 250 Ft- Lbs ) I use a 3/4 in inpac air gun that has 1000 ft-lbs take off toque with the wheel still on the ground and the parking brake on with the wheels choclked. You can still get them off with a 1/2 breaker bar the correct socket and a pipe ( that fits over the handle of the breaker bar) and a sheadge hammer. On the drivers side of the car with the breaker bar parrleell to the floor and sticking out the front, put the pipe over the handle and pust down on the end and wack it hard where the handle is inside the pipe. once it turns it'll turn easy, so watch out! The axel will be stuck in the hub and may be very hard to get out. I use an high powered air chiscil with a pointed bit in the very end of the axel with only the axel nut removed with the wheigh of the car still on the ground, it'll push in about an inch with it all put together. Hopefully after it's moved some it'll be able to be pulled out. Remove the wheel and tire assembly and unbolt the lower ball joint. with it separted from the lower control arm the steering knuckle can be pulled away from the car and the axle pulled out of the knuckle while staying in the transmission. The ball joint part of the job needs to be done with both sides of the car jacked off the ground and supported well with jack satands. I ussally do both sides of the car for axels unless one has already been changed or money for the other axel is'nt available. If your just doing the job for yourself and you don't normally do car repair work, The cost of the tools that you only use to change the axel cost alot more than what you should pay to have the axels changed. I charge $100 to change both axels and $75 to change just one. I buy the rebuilt axels at my local auto parts store for $46 or new ones for $75 sometimes the new ones are cheaper in time as you just buy them straight out and theres no core charge and you just but them go home and put them on and go about you bussness.. It's easy to get hurt putting in axels as the car can fall on you. ( not useing good jack stands and a good hard level hard surface to work on. A good floor jack. a ball joint separterater. the correct axel scoket. The impac scocket and the powerful enough air gun to remove the nut, acess to compressed air to run the air tools. Really a lift to raise the car and hold it good enough that it does'nt fall and kill you. a large pry bar to pry the axel out of the transmission and a large hammer to beat the new axel into the transmission and the brawn and strengh to do all this heavy work.

1993 Dodge Grand Caravan Transmission issue


A broken engine or tranny mount should not cause a front wheel to wobble. If this is happening with a grinding noise I'd expect more of a failing bearing or such. The grinding noise may also be a rotor of the brakes with poor pads. Yes, if a axel, or CV joint, is failing this can make noise too, often times a "clicking" type of noise. Best get the front of the van up on jack stands, remove the tires and inspect all of the front-end components; pay special attention CV joints, rotors and front axel area, loose movement in the axels?
I hope this may have helped,
Tom

I want to remove front axel driver side please


Basically, you loosen the axle-nut (could be pretty tough, so spray some lubricant on it) and the wheel nuts. Jack up the car and support it on jack-stands.
Reomve the brake calipers and tie it up to frame. Remove the two bolts holding the struts bracket and steering-knuckle. Push down/sideways to separate both strut-bracket and steering-knuckle. Use large screw-driver or pry bar to pry off axle from side of transmission. Block-off transmission fuild with a nylon rag or similar; take out axle-shaft. Installation is reverse of removal.

How do i get the ignition switch off my 1997 vw golf i took off the safety boly steering wheel and all plug conectors just left with shaft and spring


This is a how-to from VWVortex.com

You WILL need the following,
10MM wrench
13MM wrench and socket or another wrench.
a eyeglasses phillips head screwdriver. (very small)
a regular size phillips head screwdriver
new ignition switch
vice grips (may not need them)
Instructions.
1. lock the steering wheel, and make note where it was just incase.
2. disconnect the battery with 10mm wrench.
3. remove the plastic around/behind the steering wheel by the two screws underneath using a phillips head screw driver.
4. now go under the dash, and remove the plastic peices covering up the steering wheel axel. and unscrew the bolt using a 13MM wrench&socket. Its a "U" joint.
5. Unplug everything behind the wheel including the ignition and the airbag.
6. using a vice grip, or your fingers if it is loose, to unscrew a gold bolt on the left side of the steering wheel column, its right behind the steering wheel on left underside.
7. Gently pull out the steering wheel, and the whole thing, including the axel, and steering wheel will comeout, be careful the end of it is greasy.
8. now with a small screwdriver (phillips), eyeglasses size is what i used, remove the screw where the ignition switch is, its a pretty long screw so it may take some time and it the switch wont come out until its fully unscrewed.
9. replace everything opposite of how it was took out.
Note- when your putting the steering wheel axel back, be sure to put back the large spring and align the axel correctly.

How do i change the rh diff axle seal on a hyundia accent 2002 auto


place the vehicle on a lift (preferred) and remove the RH front wheel. Remove the driver axel retaining nut (1 1/4" nut) and washer. Remove the lower ball joint retaining nut (17mm nut). Using a 10 oz hammer, strike the nuckle where the lower ball joint is attached to it (be careful not to strike the grease boot) while applying downward force on the lower control arm until it pops loose. Once loose, pry down on the lower control are while simultaneously moving the strut to one side untill the joint is clear/away from the knuckle. Now remove the drive axel from the the spline of the hub bearing. Using a pry bar, pop loose the axel from the transmission differential. Installation of the new axel is in reverse order.
