Home  \  Repairs & Maintenance  \  Trouble with driveaxle on a ford probe 93 ...any suggestions?

I have a 93 ford probe se 4 cylinder 2.0 liter engine and i am having problems popping the driveaxle from the transmission. I have used all the suggested crowbars, long screwdrivers, ect. I have taken the stabilizer bar and link off as well as the opposite side of the drive axle from the wheel. Any suggestions on how to pry it out of the transmission?

Slide a prybar between the cv shaft and the tranny, put some pressure on it and smack the cup part of the cv joint with a big f'ing hammer (also known as a Ford wrench) to release the c-clip inside the tranny. It may take a few whacks. :thumbs:
