Question about 1997 Isuzu Rodeo

1 Answer

1997 Isuzu Rodeo. How do you connect the cv axles into the differential? I have tried everything, from putting the snap rings on the axle and trying to push them past the bearings in the differential so that seat into the grooves, to installing them without the snap rings but then they just back out of the differential and grind really noisily. Nobody can answer this question it seems.

Another sort of more experiance answer than techincal ,its easy on the ends of the shaft is a split circlip ,well this circlip is damaged so it will never go in ,now what you do it use a thin screwdriver and take the clips off then using a vice close the clips up nice and tight till the open end is touching its opposite ,then very gingerly refit them trying not to prise them open too much when refitting ,look for a master spline and if you cannot find one then with assistant offer them up and in .Keeping them dead level and in line place a block of wood over teh threaded end so you dont damage the thread then hit it short sharp and hard with a 7kg hammer and they will go in ,if it doesnt go in on first wallop then check the clip again .EASY just need a bit of patience and 40 yrs experiance of bodgeing things ,--- sorry constructive engineering

How to remove both front cv axles from front diff, i have every thng off and this aint my first rodeo, so whats up with getting the inner cv joint out of the diff.


If you have everything loose so the CV axle will pull out of the diff, try this: Using two flat head screwdrivers, put them beteween the inner edge of the joint and the diff. GENTLY pry with both screwdrivers 180 degrees apart ( like at 3 and 9 o'clock). there is a clip in a groove that has to retract al the way in to release the halfshaft. It can be very frustratiing as I have been there done that. try rotating the axle about a quarter turn and then use the two screwdrivers again. some times you just have to find the "sweet spot".

I have a 1999 isuzu 4wd rodeo 6 cylinder and was wondering if Need to install a new boot kit or if I need to replace the entire front left cv axle shaft. I had a tear in my rubber boot and noted some...


Do not try to get the cv axle out ot the axle housing. It is a major operation. Remove boot and disconnect the inner cv joint and save about five hours of time. The choice is yours ,boot or reman cv axle. You will need to take the reman. axle apart to install it though and some new clamps. Not a simple operation.

My front differential is leaking!


I cannot see it, but I am guessing that you need to replace your axle seal. To do this,you have to pull your CV shaft out. Remove the tire, remove the caliper from the top of the rotor. Using a hammer on the back, remove the rotor. Take off the spindle (axle) nut, separate the axle (CV shaft) from the hub. Replace seal. It should pop right out. Good luck!

Cv joint removal


Get the replacement cv axle and remove inner boot and clip and bearings. Do the same on the old axle. Replace bearing clip, cv shaft and reassemble. Do not try to remove the part from inside the front axle unless you want to spend about six hours of time and money.

Cv joint


Loosening but not removing the strut top mounts and sway barend link bushings can provide a bit more suspension travel for easieraxle removal. ccr20051001cv_s04.jpg
Loosen and remove wheel side axle mounting bolts. ccr20051001cv_s05.jpg
Separate the axle from the wheel. Do not allow axle to hang from thetransmission or differential. Oil seals could be damaged. ccr20051001cv_s06.jpg
Gently pull, pry, or otherwise liberate the axle from the transmissionor differential. Do not bend axle seals. Be careful not to teartransmission or differential oil seals. ccr20051001cv_s07.jpg
The axle splines on the right show damage. Note the c-clip on both axles. ccr20051001cv_s08.jpg
Don't forget to transfer any axle seals, ABS rings, or other parts to the replacement axles. ccr20051001cv_s09.jpg
Guide the replacement axle into place. Depending on the type of retainer, the axle should click firmly in place. ccr20051001cv_s10.jpg
Always use the proper torque on the axle bolts. Check axle rotation. Reassemble dismantled components.

Rear Axle Bearing Replacement


That absolutely sounds like an axle (wheel) bearing. Jack up that corner of the truck and grab the top and bottom of the wheel, and shake like crazy. If you have any play whatsoever, it's a sign of a bad bearing (although you could have a bad one and not have any play - it would only mean the bearing isn't worn badly enough to cause looseness in the wheel).

You should be able to remove the axles without opening the diff up. If the axles have c-clips or snap rings on the ends inside the diff, you can usually get the axles out by dismounting them from the hubs and getting them free of all attachment except the diff, and then use a large flat-tip screwdriver as a pry bar. Use it right where the axle body mates to the diff, and lever it while you pull/yank/shake/swear at the axle, and you'll manage to pop the axle out of the diff. Sometimes it takes some time and profanity, but so far it's worked for me everytime.

Installing a cv joint axle on the driver front


The trans side of the axle has a round spring clip on the drive splines it just snaps in and out of the transmission, they can be very difficult to remove, esp. the first time they are taken out, takes allot of brute strength. I would suggest you push the axle in, it will move inboard a little, then try to pull back in a snapping motion, another thing the axle need to be in as straight a line as possible.
