Question about Mazda 626

Open Question

I am changing the CV axles on a 1999 Mazda 626 with a V-6 engine. The passenger side CV axle has a female end on the end that goes toward the trans. It ends at a carrier bearing, and what I am wondering is if you still put a pry bar in between the Carrier bearing and the CV axle and pop the axle out and is there a snap ring on the Male shaft that is in the carrier bearing? Basically how does this come apart and go back together? Thanks for any help you may give! Ivan

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: how do take out the cv joint on the front axle of

assuming you have the 2wd version....

1997-99 Models

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Unlock the steering column so the linkage is free to move, then raise and support the front of the vehicle safely using jackstands.
  3. Remove the tire and wheel assembly.
  4. Insert a drift through the brake caliper into one of the brake rotor vanes to prevent the drive axle from turning.
  5. Remove the axle nut and washer from the hub end of the shaft. Hold the hub from turning and loosen the axle nut. Once the nut is loosened unthread it and remove the washer.
  6. Remove the brake caliper and support it with a piece of wire to avoid damaging the brake hose. Remove the brake rotor.
  7. Remove the ABS and brake line brackets from the top of the upper control arm.

Be careful when supporting the lower control arm that any components are damaged with the supporting device.
  1. Place a jackstand or jack under the lower control arm.
  2. Separate the axle shaft from the hub by placing a block of wood against the outer edge of the axle (to protect the threads), then strike the block of wood sharply with a hammer. Do not remove the axle at this time.
  3. Remove the cotter pin and retainer, then loosen and remove the upper ball joint stud nut away from the knuckle. Tip the knuckle out and toward the rear of the vehicle. Suspend the knuckle from the upper control arm or frame in order to prevent straining and damaging the brake line.
  4. Remove the lower shock absorber retainers, then compress the shock and secure it out of the way using safety wire.

Once the lower ball joint is separated from the knuckle, simultaneously push the axle shaft in towards the differential to allow room for the knuckle and assembly to be removed.
  1. Remove the cotter pin and retainer, then loosen and remove the lower ball joint stud nut away from the knuckle.
  2. Lower the safety stand or jack at the lower control arm to relieve pressure on the torsion bar, then separate the axle from the knuckle.
  3. Remove the differential carrier shield, being very careful not to damage the axle seal.
  4. To remove the shaft from the differential carrier, place a block of wood or a brass drift against the tripot housing, then strike it outwards using a hammer. You will have to hit it hard enough to overcome the snapring pressure retaining it.
  5. Support the drive axle, then pull the axle straight out from the carrier being careful not to tear the boot.

SOURCE: how do i remove the drivers side cv axle on a kia.

The answer is NO... you do not pry it 'OPEN." I'm assuming you've already removed the cotter key and the 1 1/4" nut from the axel hub? The DOJ (Dual Offset Joint) that is inserted into the differential side of the trans has a retaining ring which "COMPRESSES" when you pry the DOJ out using a large pry bar or extra large screwdriver. The same 'COMPRESSION' happens to the ring when you install the new axel.... once fully inserted, the ring 'EXPANDS' inside the differential splines creating enough tension to keep the DOJ in place.

Cv joins - knocking


If they're a knockin, they won't last long. Time for an axle replacement. You can get re-built axles for this car, less expensive and easy to replace. You DON'T want them to break while you are driving!! DANGER!!

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.

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.

Hi, The front end of my mazda clunks real bad and loud, while turning the wheel at any speed. Both directions. Help!


Check boots on CV joints for tears. Torn boots result in CV wearing out. The boots are at each end of the axles going from your transmission to the front wheels. The normal repair is to replace axles. Both can be more carefully inspected on a lift before deciding if only one or both axles should be replaced. Any questions, please reply. I'm going to bed now, but will answer any replies tomorrow.

Put in a new trans...the passenger side wheel axle...cv joint did not go in all the way...still like about an inch?


Would remove it and try to reposition it.There is a clip at the end of the axle that sometimes will stop it from going in all the way.When repositioning it should slide in a bit making sure that the splines are lined up.If it does not go in all the way and you are sure it lined up correctly tap the other end of the axle with a deadblow hammer or a block of wood and a hammer.The axle should drop into place.Be very careful when hammering on the side of the axle that goes through the steering knuckle as not to damage the threads on the axle.

Mazda 626


First put a jackstand under the car have it jacked up fairly high where you can get under it easily then take a really strong regular screw driver or a small pry bar slide up between tranny and the axle piece you are trying to get out and tap with your hand or a rubber mallet the bottom of the pry bar or the handle of the screw driver towards the opposite side of the car of what you are working on.
