Having problems with your Cars & Trucks ?

Front c/v axle will not come out of the hub/bearing assembly...need help!!!

\015 I am trying to replace the ball joints, I've removed the hub nut, beat on the end of axle with a three pound sledge, I've loosened the three bolts that attach the hub to the knuckle and rented a hub puller this was also ineffective, also I've applied heat with a propane torch, (small size), according to what I see and heard there isn't anything else holding this thing on the axle. Does anyone know how to get this axle out of this hub???\012\012Tired And Frustrated!!!\015 Posted / edited by AnonymousUser on : 12-11-2018

Answers :

I have had them so stuck that I have had to pull the whole spindle off with the axle still attached.....be prepared to buy a new axle and probobly a new hub and bearing assembly....when out try more heat....I had to borrow a torch last time it happened to me on a Stratus....ended up having to almost cut it out with torch....a new axle will have a smaller core charge than a reman. one if you ruin the axle....and all that pounding cant be good for the bearing/hub assembly...good luck...Lee
