OK- I got the CV axle out pretty easy-- even the lower ball joint came off the knuckle easily. I removed the three inner bolts and pulled the whole shaft out... But the new CV axle doesn't include the new inner shaft (that goes through the bearing support and into the TC). Is there some secret to separating these shafts?
OK.. Question.. I'm hoping someone gets back to me quickly (fingers crossed)
I have everything removed, Steering Knucle, Brakes, Etc. Ready to pull the passenger side CV axle which I've purchases a rebuilt from AutoZone. Now, it seems on the AWD (unlike the 2WD) you do NOT need to unscrew anything once you have everything free. It seems with the AWD (2006 SL AWD) that the Axle should just slide off once you've remove everything and removal of the Support Bearing Bracket on FAX-9 is only for the FWD model?
At this point I've tried beating the hell out the the back of the axle to get it off and it's not budging. I put Liquid Wrence on but then someone told me about PB Buster so I got a can and resprayed where the axle connects to the transfer case (passenger side) Hoping tomorrow it will had loosened up. But the big question it, which the FAX guide seems to suggest is that I DO NOT have to remove the anything from the dust shield since I'm AWD and the AWD axle is completely different than the FWD only version??
FYI, this is a '06, SL AWD.
