The inner joint (the one in the transmission) has a retaining clip which makes it a little difficult to remove the axle. The easiest way to get it out is to place a pry bar in between the inner cv joint and the transmission (see diagram)removing right front axle inner cv from diff does - nvannoy_1.jpg

I04 Lincoln Navigator. Front differential pass seal leak. remove the drive shaft and unbolt the flange. the inner flange does not have a bolt to access the seal and bearing. How is the seal accessed?


If I understand you correctly the drive shaft you took out is actually a CV axle. The inner axle shaft goes into the diff. That is held in with a snap ring in the diff. It might not come out easy, sometimes they do, use a pry bar to pop it out. Be careful not to break or damage the aluminum housing. There have been times where I had to use a strong air hammer to beat on the back side of that flange to get the axle shaft out... It's sort of like taking a CV axle out of a front wheel drive car.

How do I replace my inner axle on the passenger side of my 2002 Dodge Ram 4x4 4.7L. I lent my truck out and the C clip let go of the CV axle. The intermediate axle spline is stripped and I need to change...


Lift and support front end on suitable jack stands preferably on frame. Remove right front cv axle, stub shaft, and seal. You will need to pull the right front brake caliper assembly loose and place to the side. Then remove bolts from shock and upper control arm and hub nut to do this. Next, remove axle lock actuator on passenger side of front axle. Place a drain pan underneath front diff cover and remove cover and drain axle. In the center of differential there will be an 8 mm head bolt holding spider gear cross-shaft. Remove bolt and cross-shaft only! Push inner axle in until clip clears inside of passenger spider gear. Set clip aside and push/pull axle shaft straight out to passenger side.

What tools are needed to chang rear cv joint in a 2002 mercury mountaineer


Basic tools..remove wheel, remove axle nut, remove brake caliper, remove lower control arm bolts,remove the bolt for upper control arm, remove the outer tie rod bolt, support vehicle and suspension, the hardest part is getting the axle out of the rear diff, sometimes a simple pry bar will pop it out, but I've run into a lot where you either need the special pickle fork or even have to remove the complete rear diff with axle still attached, remove cover and take out c clip.if you continue prying and hammering between inner cv joint and diff, you will cause damage to diff.the cv joint is steel, cast maybe, and diff is aluminum so guess what will be damaged first? That'll lead into a pretty expensive repair.the special tool to remove axle is 205-529

How to remove both front cv axles from front diff, i have every thng off and this aint my first rodeo, so whats up with getting the inner cv joint out of the diff.


If you have everything loose so the CV axle will pull out of the diff, try this: Using two flat head screwdrivers, put them beteween the inner edge of the joint and the diff. GENTLY pry with both screwdrivers 180 degrees apart ( like at 3 and 9 o'clock). there is a clip in a groove that has to retract al the way in to release the halfshaft. It can be very frustratiing as I have been there done that. try rotating the axle about a quarter turn and then use the two screwdrivers again. some times you just have to find the "sweet spot".

How do you remove a front cv axle on a 1997 trooper


You can't just pop the axle out of the front diff assembly. There's a circlip behind the plate that mounts the housing to the frame where the axle passes through. Not a fun job. I usually rebuild those axles by disassembling the axle at the inner joint. If you're ready to take on the task, I'll walk you through it.

you have to undo inner cv boot and remove clip inside cv then pull out outer cv with shaft and inner bearing of inner cv,leaving inner cv outer section in diff.If you want to get out inner cv end, diff assembly must come out of vehicle then unbolt plate retainer on diff tube.
