Tranny/axle problems


Recommended Posts

Tranny problems

So I decided to replace my rear wheel bearing myself and save the 1000.00 the not so local guy wanted. Found out I could pull the carrier and take it to a shop and for 50.00 have my old bearing pressed out and the new one in. Well thats true except…when I pulled the carrier off, the axle, together with the CV joint and I believe the joint flange pulled out of the tranny. The car was tipped so I lost some fluid, but the problem is now I cannot get the joint flange which is still attached to the axle to go back into the tranny. It goes in to within about 1/2 of pressing into the seal. It goes in far enough to insert into the spline, because I can turn the opposite wheel with the car in gear and the axle Im working on turns. Any ideas out there of why that CV joint and assembly will not seat all the way to the seal in the tranny. Hope this makes sense to someone who has worked with this before. My email is rwyma@att.net if anyone can shed some light on this. I cant even get it to the point of taking it somewhere, and if I do, my wife hinted I could live in the car too! Shes not happy,$$$. FYI, I have been working on Porsches since 1977 and many other types as well, so I am not a novice. Use to be changing a wheel bearing was a ½ hour job, if you took a 15 minute break…no more. Any help might just save my marriage!

UPDATE: I removed the circlip at the end of the shaft and the spline slid right in up to the seal. Its seems that clip was holding it out. But if thats the case, why did it come out of the tranny to begin with. It is there I assume to hold it in the tranny. Any ideas how to get it in the clip on the shaft?

Thanks for any help.

Have not done this myself, but if you go to Pelicanparts.com they have good pictures that should help in their tech section

There is a snap ring about 1/2 inch from the end of the axle flange that does create some resistance. I few light taps with a wood mallet should be enough to get it to seat propertly..
