IF by the "main axle" you mean the crankshaft, then no, you HAVE to split the cases to get it out!

How to remove the left cv axel from the the housing case of a 2005 ford escape split ring is keeping it from being removed

Enough force applied will pop it out. But you can't grab hold and yank-you might pull apart the cv joint. Shops can use a slide hammer with an attached fork that slips around the cv joint housing. Another method is using a large screwdriver or pry bar between the axle housing and the cv joint housing. Slip it between them and place tip of bar against the cv housing. Now give it a good stiff push with your hand to pop out the joint and axle. Be careful of the aluminum axle case and the axle seal-don't break or damage anything. Just remember: enough force applied will pop out the circlip from its groove inside the axle case.

I need to replace an inner CV boot on a '89 Chevy K2500 truck. How is the easiest way to accomplish this?

You need to remove the shaft to do a good job (I don't recommend the split boots). Once the shaft is out, I usually just replace the whole thing, as the difference in price between CV joints and shats is small compared to the labor of taking the CV off the axle. To change the shaft, you have to separate the lower ball joint and possibly the tie rod end as well. Remove the axle nut. Then you swing the hub assy away from the trans and pull the axle out of the hub. Next, put a drain pan under the trans in case it leaks a little with the axle out. Pull the axle straight out of the trans and reverse procedure to reinstall.

Front diff. wont lock into 4x4. Transfer case is working. Vacume Dia. under battery tray is working. Could the shifting fork in the diff be broke

The cable from the differential to the accumulator should move somewhat freely. If it does not, then the cable may be froze up. You can lubricate it with some penetrating oil and work it to free it back up. You may have to remove it to free it up properly.You may find the cable shield towards the bottom end is broke off and the cable may completely be froze up, it's common on the Blazers. You can try pulling on the rod that the cable clips into in the front diff to disengage the front axle. If you cannot get it to engage that way, then you will likely have to pull off the passenger side extension housing to access the engagement collar and fork. If you cannot get it to engage by pulling on the fork in the axle, then you will likely have to disassemble it.

You will likely have to file down the leading edge of the gears. They should be beveled on the sides of the spline to aid in engagement. Hopefully yours is not chipped like the one in the front of my old S10. Mine chipped the splines on the axle and split the collar from being partially engaged under power

The right axle and has splines at the end of it. The Output Shaft slides into the carrier and has large teeth on the other end. The collar it has large teeth inside it that mate with the Output Shaft with the Fork.

The collar rests on the axle, the fork wraps around the collar. Then you push the 4x4 button or shift your transfer case into 4x4 it starts spinning the front drive shaft, which spins the carrier and the short shaft. Now your in 4x4, BUT the front axle needs to lock the right axle with the carrier. A switch on the transfer case routes engine vacuum to a diaphragm under the battery tray, that diaphragm pulls a cable which pulls the collar and forces it over the short shaft. Now your front diff is locked. When you take it out of 4x4 the vacuum switch closes and a spring pushes the fork and collar off the shaft unlocking the front diff.

The problem with mine I think is that the large teeth on the Output Shaft and the inside of the collar are worn at the tips, not allowing them to join together, and the more I drove it around with it clicking, thinking it would lock eventually it just wore the tip of the teeth more.

If that is the problem, You should not have to mess with the differential case. You should be able to get the passenger axle extension tube off, but it may require popping a ball joint, then disconnecting the CV shaft from the axle extension tube, which would allow you to then pull the extension tube.

Good luck and hope it's just the shift cable retaining clip in the housing that broke.

Rear axle brake calipur broke and split my rim, i need to remove my axle shaft so i can replace my parking cable bracket, ive removed my bearing caps and pin from the center of my axle but my axle still...

Bearing caps? Put them back in. and retorque, I hope you didnt ruin anything. After you take the bolt and and the large pin out, you push the axle in towards the center of the axle housing and there is a large clip that you remove, sometimes it even falls out, then you can pull the axle out. The clip fits into a groove at the end of the axle. Inspect the axle bearing and seal while its apart ant replace them if anything looks like its worn, To install push the axle all the way in, and get the clip back in th egrrove, then pull axle out to seat the clip. then the large pin can go back in.

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.
1817034.jpg 7. Push the axle hub outward and separate the driveshaft from the axle hub. 8. Insert a pry bar between the transaxle case and the tripod joint case, and pry the driveshaft from the transaxle case.
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.

I am replacing my axle on the pasenger side ive got everything apart just havnt taken the axle out yet should it just pull out or is there something to it if you can help it would be nice

With a large screwdriver, CAREFULLY pry the axle out of the differential case about half an inch. This causes an internal snap ring to disengage from it's locking groove, you can then pull the axle out of the case. Countrycurt0
