I believe all the Nissan transaxles ending in A are non-locking, but you can try doing the spin test; Jack up your car's entire front and turn one of the wheels with your hand. If the other front wheel turns in the opposite direction as the one you're turning, you don't have a locking diff.

REMOVEING DIFFERENTIAL ON A 1999 300M FRONT WHEEL DRIVE


The diff is part of the trans axle automatic transmission assembly and is not a separate part that can be removed.

97 ford explorer/bad front differential..can I remove it completly with the cv joints and let front wheels freewheel?


Yes is the short answer. Did you blow the gears in your front differential or you going to put a whole new pumpkin in? If you are replacing the entire pumpkin drain it first. Then make sure to support it with a transmission jack first. Remove the tires. Then remover the CV axles and lower the pumpkin. Your vehicle requires a 75w90 synthetic axle lube for a refill. Good luck.

I need to remove my front axel on my 1989 toyota camry


Jack up car and apply e-brake. car will roll if one of the front tires leaves the ground. remove tire , spindal nut and lower ball joint bolts. remove axle from hub then use a prybar to pop it out of trans. the passenger side will have a braket holding axle to engine , remove bolts from braket or squeeze snap-ring to rmove axle from braket.

1999 Subaru Forester has developed a shake when accelerating, esp. between 20-30 mph. Wheel bearings replaced - didn't help. Tires checked, balanced, etc. - didn't help. Front end allignment - didn't help....


Auto or 5-speed?
Subarus have CV axles in front and back. And a drive shaft from the center differential of the transmission to the back differential.

Yes, it could be the drive shaft or axle. If you turn the car hard left or right do you hear any noises - usually a 'clicking' sound? This is likely a CV axle in front.

Check the fluid in the transmission (Automatic) (info is in the Owner's Manual) to make sure it's full and/or gear oil in the front differential.

If it's an Automatic transmission, the fluid may need changed - NOT FLUSHED - if it has more than 30K miles since last changed.

Need help removing right side cv axle on 94 toyota


Assuming you have the spindle off - you need a pry bar between the inner mount and the transaxle. Give it a bit of a snap as it is held in with a lock ring around the spline. Note the gap - when replacing it - pop it in fairly well till you feel the snap ring lock back into position. If you are replacing it - inspect the new one - the lock ring should already be installed.

I have a 1991 Subaru Legacy right hand drive wagon. I put in a new front axle assembly and I still have a knocking sound. Everything I have read with that sound says it is the cv joint. Someone told me it...


A CV joint - when going bad - is more of a clicking sound.. Not so much a knocking sound.. And tends to get louder when turning & accelorating..

Hope this helps !!
Rate me good ;o)
