You shouldn't have to. Keep a drain pan under the area to catch any that may spill. If you have just the once side of the car jacked up then I doubt if any will come out at all when you finally pull the shaft from the trans. Eve with the car level on a rack very little will come out.

Remove axle

if you need to remove the axle from the spindle side then you need to take the axle nut off which you have to remove the rim n tire and it will be dead center approx 1in size nut or bigger not sure exact size

second have to remove the nut on the lower ball joint n seperate the lower control arm and strut. will need a ball joint fork which you can get at any parts store and a pry bar to push down on control arm once ball joint is broken loose to seperate the strut. this will allow you to push the axle back troungh the spindle to remove it.

last but not least where the axel goes in to the transmission you will need a small pry bar to pop it out from transmission. jus put it between axle n transmission and apply pressure till it comes out. the axel has a oring style clip which holds it in place so not able to pull it out by hand. caution when you pull the axel it will leak out some fluid so make sure you have a drain pan .

to install jus follow the process backward jus make sure the axel pops back in place securely other wise when you go to drive it you risk it poping out. good luck n hope this helps you

How do you flush all the transmisson fluid2004 hyundia accent

Before draining the fluid you must make sure you have an adequate amount of the correct fluid to put back in. There will be a round plug under the transmission with a square lug on it, which a 1/2" spanner will fit onto. Undo it completely after placing a pan under it. Once it is drained completely put the plug back on and tighten it firmly. There will now be a similar plug on the front of the transmission, take this one off and insert a funnel (perhaps a long hose to a funnel will make it easier). pour the transmission fluid in slowly as you will need to stop once the fluid starts spilling out of the hole, when this happens it is at the correct level and you can now replace the plug and tighten it up firmly. Take it for a test drive for the fluid to warm up and then check it for leaks.

Remove cv shaft 2002 hyundai accent left side

It will be pretty hard to remove as there is a a clip on the end that makes it hard to remove and install. You may be able to insert a pry bar in between the transmission and the axle, or wrap a chain/rope around the axle where it goes in to the transmission.

Where is the transmission pan on a 2001 accent

They do not have a regular trans. pan for sevice, but it has a drain plug underneath -- horizontally located facing the tire. It's pretty much in the centre of the transmission/axle.
Remove that to drain the fluid and it has a magnet in the drain plug -- clean that out before you put it back.

Will a 2001 Hyundai Accent transmission fit a 1999 Hyundai Accent?

Yes it will, but you need to make sure that the engine and transmission bolt patterns are the same. The drive axles might not fight the splines of the '99 front splindels. The lenghts of the drive axles might be different as well. Other than that you should be able to replace it.

How do you remove axles on a 2000 hyundai accent?

Very carefully. 1. Loosen the wheel nuts slightly. 2. Raise the front of the vehicle, and support it with safety stands in a proper location. 3. Remove the wheel nuts and front wheel. 02590df.jpg 4. Remove the split pin, the castle nut and the washer from the front hub. 5. Drain the transmission fluid before the driveshaft is removed. 6. Using a plastic hammer, make the driveshaft disconnected from the axle hub.

4d4e228.jpg caution_icon_eng.gif Be sure to apply the pry bar to the rib of the transaxle case. Do not insert the pry bar too deeply, as this may cause damage to the oil seal. [max. depth : 7 mm (0.28 in.)] For automatic transaxle equipped vehicles, insert a pry bar into the groove of the driveshaft to remove the driveshaft from the transaxle. Do not pull on the driveshaft; the joints may come apart. Be sure to use the pry bar. 9. Pull out the driveshaft from the transaxle case. caution_icon_eng.gif Place a plug in the hole of the transaxle case to prevent contamination Support the driveshaft properly. Replace the circlip each time the driveshaft is removed from the transaxle case.

1997 Accent trans. trouble after torque convertor replacement.

okay. there could be a couple of problems with your transmission.
1). it's quite possible that the clutch discs inside of your transmission have finally burned out. Hyundai has been known for making faulty transmissions for the accent for the first generation models.
2). if the car doesn't go in first gear, try driving it in normal mode and not economy. the accent purposely pulls in second gear in economy mode, when warmed up, in order to get into the high 30 mpgs.
3). faulty shift control solenoid. These have also been known to be defective with the first generation accent (1995-1999).
4). Your transmission fluid leaked out, prior to the mechanic fixing it, and the high heat building up in the transmission as well as the low amount of fluid in the transmission helped to burn it out.
for options 1 and 4, you wont know the actual problem unless you pull the transmission out and examine all of the clutch discs.
hope this helps...

Slow acceleration and jerking when put in drive or reverse

Just wondering if you had checked your trans fluid?
If it's at the right level I might go back to the place that did the tranny work and have a chat with them,
If your fluid is low you have to get it at the dealer, I think it is call sp5, I'll go check the bottle I have.
