Transmission and drive axels question.

Wile I am tore down for the winter making chassis mods and installing a turbo conversion, I figured I would open up the gear box to inspect everything (change what's needed) then add a second vent line and re-seal it BUT, my axels seam to be stuck........haven't spent much time on it yet (got plenty of other things to do right now) but eventually I will need to get it apart LOL!

Anyone have any tips for removing a stubborn axel? I plan to get some bigger pry bars this weekend and maybe that will get them right out? I also figured on shocking them a little to break them loose. Still yet, any advice is MUCH appreciated!

Re: Transmission and drive axels question.

Pry carefully & evenly on each side of the C/V, the axle is held in with a snap ring.
Push & release, push & release with care & they will pop out.

Re: Transmission and drive axels question.

They likely have some rust in there too. I heavily grease the splines on mine at install to avoid that. Get some penetrating oil and spray what you can in the splines.

I think I spent 4 hours getting the axles out of my Riot the first time. Get a slide hammer type CV Joint Puller and that can help remove a stubborn axle too. I pull the driver side out first and then use a large socket and extension through the newly opened driver side and pound the passenger CV out.

Re: Transmission and drive axels question.

First off, I try and never pry on the stock case. I would rather pull a cv apart trying to pop it out. By hard level pulls to the axle. I soak mine for about a week before removing them.
I like the idea of pulling the drivers side first and driving on it to get it moving but I would still pop it the rest of the way out.
I always coat my splines with a good anti-seize. Anti-seize will hold up better to the heat than grease will.
Cv joint slide hammer seems to be the smartest thing I guess.
Either way when they have come out, change the stock bearings in the trans. I get mine from Mike at RedRock. Good luck.
