It is a snap ring, and you need a snap ring expander.

SOURCE: How to remove 1991 Toy Celica front drive axles?

i have a 91 celica st. i went to replace the axle and had the same problem you have. you just need to get enough leverage to try and pry it out. get a large pry bar and get in a spot where you can get behind it on the trans. if that doesnt work if the axle is free from the spindle try pulling out as hard as you can. it will most likely be a pain in the a** but eventually you should be able to get it.

SOURCE: rear end

If you have a Chevy diff, you have "c-clips" These clips are located inside the diff. Remove diff cover. Remove lock bolt that holds cross shaft in place. Slide cross shaft out. Push axles inward and remove C-washers. Remove axle shafts being carefull not to damage axle seals. Question Why are you taking this apart?

SOURCE: I'm trying to remove the left rear axle so I can

Have someone try to move the axle in and out while you watch the end of the axle inside the spider gear carrier. The 'C' clip should be near the end and will drive off with a small punch. If there is no clip, then the axle/bearing is retained by a plate that is bolted at the end of the axle housing behind the wheel. The bearing and seal should be removed and replaced with the aid of a shop press.

How do I remove the rear end on a 1999 ford F150

Turn the differential around until you find the small bolt that is holding the differential pinion shaft into the carrier housing, this is the shaft thar runs through the carrier housing that the spider gears rotate on. Remove the bolt and slide the pinion shaft out towards you, if you have limited slip there will be a metal spring shaped kind of like an S that will need to be carefully pried out using a screwdriver or pry bar. You will need to remove the brake drum or rotor depending what type of brake you have on the left side, then just push the axle into the housing about half an inch, look in the center of the carrier housing on the end on the axle you just pushed inward, there will be a C clip on the end of the axle. The C clip looks like a washer with a notch cut in it, remove the C clip using needle nose pliers or a magnet, the axle should now just pull out.

Cannot get rear axle out of rear end

most axles you have to take off the differential cover and there will be a large pin that goes through the center of the carrier. this pin usually has a small bolt holding it in place. remove bolt and pin and that should allow you to push axle in enough to remove the c-clip on the end of the axle.then you can pull axle out of housing.

Rear wheel bearings are shot. How do I pull the shaft out?

You'll have to take the back cover off the rear end and drain off the gear lube. Inside you'll see the ring gear and in front is the pinion gear. Inside the housing of the ring gear you'll see small spider gears. These spider gears run on a gear that is on the end of the axle. The end of the axle will have a C-clip or some kind of retainer. When you get the retaining divice out and the bolts out that hold the bearing housing on the vacuum plate, the bearing and axle should pull out.

Need to change rear seals in axcles how to? 98 gmc jimmy

First i would check to see if the axle air vent was clear if its not the oil is vary heavy and expands a lot this will build up pressure inside the houseing and cause the axle seals to leak if you can clear it the problem may fix it self its 80 90 weight oil thats thick stuff. If not you need to remove the rear wheels and brake drums then you have to remove the cover from the rear carriar catch the oil. Look inside the carriar houseing you will see the ends of the axles theres a small clip on each axle called a c clip remove them you can pull them out with your fingers. Then you can slide the axles out past the brake plates pry the seals out you might as well replace the bearings when your doing but thats up to you. Lube and install the bearings then the new seals you will need new seals lube the seal lips and vary carefuly slide the axle in taking care not to damage the seal install the c clip do the other side put a new gasket on the rear carriar tighten bolts to 20 ft lbs. Refill carriar 80 90 weight oil through filler plug on the side of the houseing until it just starts to run out hole put the plug in the rear drums on and wheels

How to replace rear axle bearings on a 87 thunderbird

Jack the car and put stands under the body just ahead of the upper control arm perch, next pull off the rear wheel and tire assemblies, next go under car with a 1/2" socket and drain pan and remove cover from rear end housing. Now turn drive shaft until you see a horizontal bolt with a 5/16 head, remove this bolt and place in cover so you remember to put it back. Now push the axles in at the lugs (push towards center of car) they will only move about 3/8". Now inside the housing there should be two c-clips one on the end of each axle. Remove these using a pair of long needle nose pliers. Once these have been removed go back to side of car and pull on the axle flange and remove axles. Now the axle bearing and seal are exposed. A slide hammer must be used at this time to remove bearings. CAUTION!!!!! once the c-clips and axles are removed DO NOT turn the driveshaft for ANY reason!!!

How do you take apart the pasnager rear axle?

You need to remove the rear wheel and brake drum, support the axle housing with a good jackstand. Remove the rear diff cover and find the bolt that goes through one end of the spider gear shaft (smaller gears in center section) Be careful when removing shaft or turning gears that the small gears don't walk out of the housing. Once the shaft has been removed, push the axle in and remove the retaining clip on the inside end, then pull axle out. Reverse procedure to install.

I'm trying to remove the left rear axle so I can replace the outer oil/greese seal. Seems pretty straight forward, however I'm not totally sure where the ''C'' c;ip is located that I need to remove to...

Have someone try to move the axle in and out while you watch the end of the axle inside the spider gear carrier. The 'C' clip should be near the end and will drive off with a small punch. If there is no clip, then the axle/bearing is retained by a plate that is bolted at the end of the axle housing behind the wheel.

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.
