I am unable to fit the fork on the front wheel axle bar. It is too tight and won't fit. Do I need to force and open it a little bit?

If it is the original tire than you might have to spread the forks a little bit. If it is not the original front tire than the axle might be to long for that bike. In any case you are on the right track be careful when trying to spread the forks as to not spread to much and also don't get hurt in process. Good Luck...

2003 gmc envoy 4x4 problems. 4200 vortec engine. my front diff doesnt seem to be


The Selectable Four Wheel Drive (S4WD) Front Axle consist of the following components:
• Differential Carrier Housing
• Differential Case Assembly
• Inner Axle Shaft
• Intermediate Shaft Bearing Assembly (located on the right side of the oil pan)
• Electric Motor Actuator
The front axle on Selectable Four Wheel Drive (S4WD) model vehicles uses a disconnect feature mounted on the right side of the oil pan in order to engage and disengage the front axle. When the driver engages the 4WD system, the Transfer Case Control Module sends a signal to the electric motor actuator to energize and extend the plunger inside. The extended plunger moves the clutch fork and clutch fork sleeve across from the clutch fork outer gear that is splined to the right side wheel drive shaft to the clutch fork inner gear that is splined to the inner axle shaft. The locking of the two gears allows the axle to operate in the same manner as a semi-floating rear axle. A propeller shaft connects the transfer case to the front axle. The differential carrier assembly uses a conventional ring and pinion gear set to transmit the driving force of the engine to the wheels. The open differential allows the wheels to turn at different rates of speed while the axle continues to transmit the driving force. This prevents tire scuffing when going around corners and premature wear on internal axle parts. The ring and pinion set and the differential are contained within the carrier. The axle identification number is located on top of the differential carrier assembly or on a label on the bottom of the right half of differential carrier assembly. The wheel drive shafts are completely flexible assemblies consisting of inner and outer constant velocity CV joints protected by thermoplastic boots and connected by a wheel drive shaft.

Can not get axle out of trans axle, passenger side.


Put a pry bar or large screwdriver between the transaxle case and the CV joint housing, and try to pop the axle out. Be careful of the axle seal in the transaxle case-if distorted, it will need replacing. Shops use a slide hammer with a forked end that fits around the CV joint housing to pop out the axles-if you use a prybar, you can usually pop them out. There is a circlip near the end of the axle splines that fits in a groove inside the transaxle- a little force pushes the circlip out of the groove, and axle is free to come out.

How do I replace the rear axle


Is it rear or front wheel drive?
Rear wheel drive. take of the wheel. Behind the hub there should be bolts that hold the axle in place. Undo these, then yoy need something to pull the axle. They are sometimes a bit tight and need a bit of force.
What is wrong why do you need to remove it?

I am trying to put on the front wheel but it is not fitting, there is a washer tightened on each side towards the wheel. Am I supposed to take those off before trying to put the wheel on? Otherwise, what...


If you're talking about the washers which can screw in and out you don't take them off. They hold the ball-bearings, that the axle turns on, in place. If you have moved them you should adjust them so that when you hold the wheel by the axle at each side the weight of the valve, for pumping the wheel, moves to the bottom i.e. next the ground. Any tighter is too tight any looser is too loose. You need to pull he forks of the bike frame slightly apart to get the wheel to fit between them.

If you're talking about washers that can pull off rather than screw off they can be taken off and put on the axle outside the forks next the nuts which hold the wheel on.

I have just purchased a Kawasaki 98 GPXR motorbike and need to replace the front wheel tyre. How do i go about removing the wheel so that i can take it to the mechanics to get this done?


Torque specs:

Front axle = 80 ft/lb
Front axle clamp bolt = 15 ft/lb
Front axle caliper mounting bolts = 25 ft/lb

Front Wheel Removal:

1. While the bike is still on the rear stand (but before putting it on the front stand), loosen the front axle clamp bolt with a 6mm hex bit. You do not need to remove it fully, just be sure it's loose.

2. Using the 14mm hex bit, loosen the front axle bolt. A breaker bar makes this step easier. Once it is loose you can go ahead and place the motorcycle on the front stand.

3. Using the 12mm socket, remove the front brake caliper mounting bolts. Once you have the brake off of the rotor, replace the bolts back in the caliper to prevent losing them. Hang the brake using cable ties or twine. BE SURE NOT TO PUSH THE BRAKE PEDAL! This will compress the brake pads and make it difficult to re-install. Repeat the process for the other side.

4. Once the brakes are tied off out of the way, finish removing the front axle bolt. It's helpful to use some wood to support the wheel while removing the axle bolt. Be sure to note the spacers on the wheel between the forks and the wheel. Remove them so they don't get lost. These will need to be greased before reinstalling.

5. Installation is the reverse of removal. Be sure to replace the calipers and torque them to 25 ft/lb. Once the front axle bolt has been torqued to 80 ft/lb, be sure to drop the front to the ground and bounce the front forks 4-5 times. This will seat the forks on the axle. Then you can tighten the front axle clamp bolt to 15 ft/lb.

I am assembling a 24 inch girls Traverse bike. Not quite sure how the front wheel goes on the fork! Seems obvious but I got confused when I saw the quick release assembly packaged with the pedals. Not...


The Front Quick release is used on the front wheel, if the axle is hollow. If it has nuts on the outside of the axle then it does not belong to the front wheel.

The front quick release is actually quite easy.

1) Place the front wheel into the forks.
2) unscrew the nob end of the skewer (opposite the handle end)
3) insert the skewer through the axle (from right to left if looking at the front of the bike)
4) Screw back on the nob a few turns.

The actual working of the quick release skewer is a cam (there is an imprinting on the handle that says open and close. make sure the handle has "open" facing out for the next step.

5) Holding the handle in your right hand, turn the nob with your left hand until the unit is almost tight.
6) Test the tightness by flipping the handle from "open" to "close". this is a cam. if you have the correct tightness then it will have some resistance to close the lever but not be difficult. If it is really hard, then back off the nob a little and try again. If it is too easy then tighten the nob a little and try again. After a couple of tries you will get it.
7) final test. Take a finger and try to flip open the lever, if you can't then its good, if you can then go back to step 6.

We just bought a womens lakeshore 26" and the assembly instructions are terrible. How do you affix the front wheel?


The front wheel axle fits into the fork, there is a U shaped notch in each fork leg at the end of the fork. There are two washers with bent tangs on them that fit into holes just above where the axle fits into the fork. Slide the washers onto the axle, one on each side. the tangs on the washers should fit into the small holes above each U shaped notch that the axle is in. Next screw on the nuts supplied for the fork. The tire should be centered between the fork legs before you tighten the nuts to secure the front wheel to the fork.

Placed new tires on 1982 goldwing but forks will not fit axle properly. the axle is inside of outside end of the right fork


There are two possibel reasons for this:
1. the most likely is that you installed the axle the wrong way around - try to fit it form the oppososite side. See if it fits the fork better.
2. second possibility is that one or both wheel bearings have moved in their housings a little when you tightened the axle in the wheel. You should investigate the condition of the wheel bearings before you go any further.
Lastly, it is not uncommon fo rthe axles to be a little way inside the fork ends due to manufacturing tolerances. What should not happen is that their position changes without obvious reason.
