So after doing my front hubs, I'm hearing an occasional clicking from the front end at low speeds. I'm assuming it's my CV joints checking out (170k mi on the car).
I didn't have a lot of trouble getting the axle backed out through the hubs when replacing them, but here's my dumb question: How do I detach the other end of the axles from the transmission? I'm in the south so I don't have a lot of rust to deal with.
I got so sick of trying to pry the drivers side axle out of my old transmission (to do an engine and tranny swap) that I pried so hard that the entire output shaft popped out. I tapped on the axle with a hammer and everything...the ring on the axle just wouldn't release.
I don't think I broke the housing but since I was doing a swap and selling it I really didn't care.
