Left CV Axle
I cant seem to be able to pry out the left side CV axle half shaft. Took everything apart just like the hanes book said and still nothing. Took apart the right side popped right out. Still nothing on the right. Anyone have any idea

Re: Left CV Axle
As far as i know you can' t remove the C clamp before removing the shaft. Can' t you get a slide hammer on it to remove the shaft? Its probably just sticking.

Two mechanics at a jeep dealer couldnt even get mine off. They had to call someone from another shop to do it

Re: Left CV Axle
I hope you are using a mopar replacement axle. The aftermarket ones are junk

Had to go in the front of the diff. Popped out good that way. Was a little more work but it did the job. Thanks guys

Re: Left CV Axle
So what did you do in the front of the diff to get the axle out?

With it in neutral. Took off the front plate off the diff/pumpkin. Rotated rear wheels so the gear axis hole faced down. From there you can see about 1/4 inch of the axle shaft. You can wedge a larger screwdriver between that and the inner yoke and tap, TAP it free of the C clip. No stress at all
