Tow strap tied around the axle and attached to a truck hitch. Ease tight then gun it. Should come out nicely then.

I have a 4runner, what I did on my axle was take a length of chain, loop one end around the axle and tie the other end to a sledge hammer. Yanked it right out.

What you need to do is turn the cv axle 90 degrees each time you try to pry on it. There os a c-clip holding it in and the sweet spot is to have the open part of the c-clip facing down. If you still have problems, get a wedge peice of wood and hammer it in between until it releases.

you removed the pin right?

have you tried heat?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 77744034


I did remove the pin but I am not sure what to heat. The trans were it fits in or the bracket where the bearing part fits in?
 Quoting: Bananafighter


heat expands metal so the idea is to heat the outer metal mass

have you sprayed anything like PB B'laster, let it soak a while?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 77744034


I have tried that. Right now I have some evaporust soaked rags sitting on it over night for one last effort before I just cut the whole thing.

Re: Need some help with car repair.. Final Update pg.7
You must live somewhere with lots of snow.
The bearing gets so rusty do to salt it basically becomes part of the bracket.
I live in the N.E.and have worked on cars all of my adult life and that job you are doing SUCKS.
You can try and letting penetrating oil soak for a day or so but it probably won't help.
The only thing I have found to work is heat and lots of it.
Oxyacetylene is the answer just don't over do it I actually melted a bracket on one.
Good luck!!
 Quoting: angryonion


yeah sounds like that is the case!

had to use oxyacetylene to remove a trailer hitch adapter once, no way it would have come out otherwise

Re: Need some help with car repair.. Final Update pg.7
So I've got a 2009 toyota sienna minivan. I am trying to replace the passenger side cv axle but it will not come out of the transmission.

I have tried pry bars (bent them), air hammer (hasn't even moved a bit), slide hammer (not even a budge), I even tried renting a set of tie rod pry bars/ball joint separators and hammered away on them. Nothing.

[link to www.autozone.com (secure)]

The part of the axle left to be removed is the right side of the picture.
No matter what i have tried nothing is working and I am losing my mind with it. It will not budge. There is a bracket attached to the engine that the bearing fits into. I cannot remove this bracket due to the location of the 3 bolts holding it in.

Please, if anyone can help. I am losing my mind with this thing.
 Quoting: Bananafighter


Would THIS be the solution???

I tried that. Didn't work
 Quoting: Bananafighter


Sure seems to be a common problem when you start watching the how to videos on the subject.

Instead of the towing to a shop might it be possible to call one of those mobile mechanics to help with just this aspect of your repair? Might be cheaper...just a thought.

The problem is that I cannot get to the 3 bolts. I can only reach one. The actual axle is in the way of the other 2 and preventing me from getting even a little bit of leverage.

I had a vehicle that was giving me this exact issue. What I did was jack the front end off the ground extremely high and supported the car. I took a long heavy piece of pipe and shoved it in to the axle mount from the drivers side. I then beat the piece of pipe with a ten pound sledgehammer. Make sure to hit the axle only and to realign the pipe after each hit. After about 10 hits the axle popped right out.

 Quoting: Bananafighter


I love working on cars but these situations are the worst. Old exhaust system and suspensions/drive-trains can be really stubborn. Like someone else said if they salt the roads in the winter this is even worse.

I would soak it in PB B-laster (can't really soak it but try to spray it a few times, if you heat it up a little but the cooling should draw it inside more, heat it too much and it will just evaporate though).

Then I would try to have something either constantly pulling on it (like a come-a-long hand winch) or prying on it (prying tool with a breaker bar).

Then I would heat it up as hot as I could get it.

Then I would beat the hell out of it with the biggest hammer I could fit in there.

All the while I would be cursing up a storm.

I have not worked on that specific vehicle though, make sure you have removed all the components that are supposed to hold it in place before you do all that. Usually it is just a roll pin/spring pin whatever they call them.

Good luck OP. Asking in the internet is a good way to take a break and let the solvent breakup some of that rust.

After you get it off, I would put some anti-seize lubricant on the spline to save yourself some headache should you have to replace the CV shaft again. I put anti-seize on brake rotors where it meets the hub too, basically anything that I have had trouble removing in the past...

That reminded me of another idea too, using the weight of the vehicle to assist. Jack up vehicle, position pry bar so as the vehicle lowers it pries it off. Slowly lower vehicle with the jack.

I've done that for the axle nut.

Spray WD40 towards the spline. Hammer it out. If you’re prying, you need to apply pressure to 2-3 spots at the same time.
