If you have rear wheel drive you could have a broke C LOCK on the inside of the differential whicn means you have to remove rear differential cover to replace C LOCK on driver side.

You need to disassemble the front diff as there is a clip that holds the shaft in the housing. You should just be able to remove the housing if it is the right side, whole diff for the left side.

Show me hoe to repair a cv joint for a Saturn Vue 2006?


Buy the shaft assembly instead of trying to change the cv joint on your shafts. They aren't much more expensive and will save a ton of time. Remove wheel, brakes, rotors, axle nut. Slip the shaft inward and press out if the hub. Then simply pop it out of the other end. There is a retainer clip on the differential side that springs in and out of place. A prybar or long screw driver helps pop it past the detent.

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.

I was changing one of my axles the other day and now I can't get the pinion shaft to go back in, I was wondering if there is a special tool used to fix this because I have the limited slip differential...


Usually you can put your finger into the hole where the shaft goes and gently turn the driveshaft yoke 'till you can feel it is properly aligned. Keep your finger in the hole and turn the carrier 'till you can slide the shaft back in place. Do this with both wheels off the ground and the transmission in neutral.
You need to do this very gently unless you don't want the end of your finger though. Obviously, make sure you have the c clips in place before you begin....you don't really want to do it twice!!! If you have turned the carrier to the point that the spider gears have fallen out and are now out of phase, it is generally easier to remove the carrier and get everything re-set. Either way, you shouldn't need to mess with the posi springs or plates. If you do end up removing the carrier, make sure you torque the end caps when you put it back in.

1992 Mazda MX3 driver side cv axle won't come out. Took off nut axle stuck and won't come out. How can I get it out?


Get a good pry bar and wedge the bar between the CV shaft and where it goes into the tranny.You should be able to pop it out.If not rotate the shaft and repeat untill it lets go.It is only held in place by a round clip on the shaft inside the tranny.Be patient its been there a long time. Good Luck

My front differential is leaking!


I cannot see it, but I am guessing that you need to replace your axle seal. To do this,you have to pull your CV shaft out. Remove the tire, remove the caliper from the top of the rotor. Using a hammer on the back, remove the rotor. Take off the spindle (axle) nut, separate the axle (CV shaft) from the hub. Replace seal. It should pop right out. Good luck!

Rear axle leaking


Block the front tires. Break the rear lugs loose. Jack up the rear of the truck at the center if possible. remove the wheels & brake drums. Remove the brake shoes,return springs & all the other hardware. Remove the differential cover & drain oil. If you have a posi the next step sucks. You need to remove the threaded pin from the housing & remove the axle retaining clips. All the while,being carefull of the spring in the posi unit. If no posi,then same procedure,minus the "pucker factor". After the axle is out,take a large flat blade screw driver or pry bar & pop the seal out. Keep in mind the axle bearing is probably gone too , so that's another procedure. Keep it apart,you'll be glad you did.

How do I do a front drive shaft on a 99 silverado? My ujoint is out towards the back. I can see the front just has the 4 bolts to take that apart. what I am wondering is if the back slides out of the deal...


I see that the solution given is for an axle shaft and not the drive shaft that was asked about. I am 99% sure that if you take out the bolts the other end will slide out of the t-case. Then the u-joint can be replaced as normally done.

Diff does not need to be removed to change axle. If you are good at this stuff, you can figure your way through it, or get a manual as a guide (haynes etc. are OK for this stuff) Axle is held into carrier by a "c" clip so you do need to remove the cover and spider gears to get it out (not difficult) If you run into a problem, someone here will surely help!
