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.

Can't get my 92 f-150 flare side 4x4 shift lever to shift in to 4wd I've yanked and yanked on it to no avail seems to be stuck in 2wd and won't budge. ( go into 4wd)

If you have to push your shifter to one side or the other to pull back, the mechanism is frozen, rusted. If its a straight pull back, you will need to remove the pivot bolt (1") and remove the shifter assy. The pivot bolt retains 2 plastic/nylon bushings. You will need to get this bolt out of the shifter without heating it. When you get the bolt out, you will need to wire wheel the shank on the bolt, to remove the rust and corrosion. When installing the bolt and bushings back into the shifter, use anti seize on the shank of the bolt, and install it.

How remove the rotor to change bearing for 2005 chev colorado front

first you remove all the lug nuts and the wheel and tire. To get the rotor off you will need to remove the brake caliper. they are held in with 1/4" hex screws. If you don't have an allen wrench you can use a socket extension to removes these. Once unscrewed the calpet simply lifts off the rotor and the rotor is ready to come off. You will need to remove the axle nut and keeper then the rotor slides off towards you and the wheel bearings will come out with the rotor.

How do u take off the oil pan on a 1999 awd bravada 4.3

Hello skullz, this is a fairly big task but it can be done in your driveway. Take your time, keep track of all your parts you remove. Use masking tape and a sharpie to label stuff if you feel like it will make easier to reinstall....These steps are for a 99 blazer 4x4 with an aluminum pan. You wont need to do some of the shift linkage removal due to the AWD and electronics the Olds has.

Disconnect battery and remove battery tray. Disconnect shift cable at actuator. Raise and support vehicle.

Remove underbody shield from steering linkage and engine oil pan. Drain crankcase. Remove starter motor.

Remove oil cooler pipes and both front wheels. Disconnect electrical connector and remove wiring harness bracket at shift cable housing.

Remove 3 shift cable housing bolts and disconnect shift cable from differential carrier. Remove both front drive axles. Remove differential housing.

Remove 10 oil pan bolts, 2 nuts at crankshaft rear oil seal and remove 2 transmission to oil pan bolts....Remove oil pan from vehicle....When you reinstall & tighten the oil pan bolts, start in the middle of the pan and go back to the bellhousing, directly across from each bolt---left, right, left right...then, from the middle towards the front of engine, right, left, right left...Torque to 18 ft/lbs

Good luck... if you tackle this job its a fun one....

If you have the C5 trans, here is the info:

C5 Transmission
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Raise and support the vehicle safely.
  3. Remove the downshift linkage rod from the transmission downshift lever.
  4. Apply rust penetrant to the outer lever attaching nut to prevent breaking the inner lever shaft. Remove the transmission downshift outer lever attaching nut and lever.
  5. Remove the two neutral start switch retaining bolts.

  7. Remove the neutral start switch from the transmission.

To install:

Always wear a protective face covering, such as a painter's mask, when working on the brakes. NEVER blow the dust from the brakes or drum! There are solvents made for the purpose of cleaning brake parts. Use them!
