Half shaft drivers side front


Recommended Posts


Yes, that is correct, use a prybar to 'pop' the shaft out of the transaxle. Be sure to lube the shaft and seal with tranny fluid when you reinsert it

Has anybody had experience replacing their half shaft, or cv joint?

I cannot seem to remove the shaft from the transaxle. Already have it off the hub or knuckle.

2001 deville.

Two large screwdrivers worked for me. Just be careful when doing that because I've read about some people cracking the trans casing that way. For me I had someone apply a bit of pressure with the screwdrivers while I pulled it out by the base.

IF it hangs it will apply more weight to the joint, was your axle hanging when you were applying pressure? I have never had trouble removing them over the years, they just pop. It's hard to believe that the case could be damaged doing this and not be damaged from potholes, torque, etc
