I have a 2003 toyota highlander with a failed cv joint. I want to change the whole axle, but i cannot get the axle out of the transaxle.

Okay after you get the outter part of axel free with rotor off and everything ,,,you have to get a small pry bar or flat screw driver what ever works and pry the small hub right after the boot there should be a small space where you can fit the pry bar between the hub on axel and trans houseing and pry it out Im doing a hyundai right now and looking for that just right space to do the same thing,,also when inserting the new axel it will push right in and you will hear the click when in all the way, if you cant get it send me a pic of the axel inserted into trans,,,,,,,, Ill help you get it out.

I need to remove the driver side axle and i cant get it out of tranny

There is a "C" clip that holds it in there. Put your pry bar on the fat part of the halfshaft (axle) and give it a few smacks with a hammer. These jolts should knock it loose to be able to remove it. If you cant get room to hit it with a hammer you will have to use a pry bar and just keep working at it on both sides.

How to replace 1996 dodge neon cv joints

Remove the wheel and the lower ball joint from the spindle. It will also make it easier if you remove the tie rod end. There is a large hut at the tire end of the axel. Remove that nut and washer. Take a rubber or brass Hammer and hit the end of the axel to push it through the bearing assembly. If it is really stuck, put the nut back on so that the nut is even with the end of the axel and uses a heavier hamer to break it loose. Once you break it loose, pull back on the rotor while pushing the axel to remove it from the hole it passes through. (Becarefull with the brake hose. If it is pulling too tight it might be best to remove the caliper and use a hanger to suspend it until you are done.) You will need a really BIG screw driver or a pry bar. Put the pry bar between the case and the hub of the axel and push in quickly and firmly to pop it out of the trans axel. It might take a few tries. If it resists look for a ridge and put a big screw drive on the ridge and use a hammer to pop it out.

Once it is out, reverse directions. Do not use the hammer on the new axel any where.put the end into the trans axel as far as it will go and then put the other end through the wheel bearing. Use the leverage you have with the rotor and bearing side to push the axel into the trans. You should hear it snap into place. Before you put the ball joint back on go to the trans axel side and use that pry bar and gently try to remove. if it resists it is seated, if it slides out, you need to seat it again. ONce you are sure it is firmly seated back into the trans, you can bump the ball joint and tie rod back together.

Good luck and be careful

I just bought a house and the garbage disposal is a peerless, it hums but doesn't run. I hit the reset button but nothing changed. I bought a wrench they said to insert in the middle and turn the opposite...

Home Depot sells a disposal wrench that you use from the top side. When it's held, it looks kind of like a T but the top part will pivot so it will go into the opening. You can use it to try and turn if from the top. If this doesn't work, then replace it.
