    Pulling axles from a FWD...HELP

    What the ****? Alright this a 99 dodge avenger... but it would be the same on a 2nd gen eclipse, talon, etc. How the hell do i get the axle off of the tranny? This is the only setback i have from pulling the tranny out, i have EVERYTHING off of it except the main bolts, hell i even have half of them off already and held up with an engine hoist. I cut the clamps and pulled the boot out of place like the book says to, but there is nothing under the boot but a mess of old grease that i cant see through. Does it pull straight out now? That means i would have to completely disassemble the front driver rotor and everything connected right? What about the passenger side? its the same thing only longer correct? I havent pulled the boot off of the passenger side yet because i was getting frustrated and got **** in my eyes so i quit. Pictures always help right?

    Here...this is the boot im talking about...


    See where it is? your upside under my car...thats the bottom of my rotor to your left...

    Is that a question? that would require me to pull apart everything you see in the 2nd picture right?.... to basically pull the rotor and **** out of the way

    Does your edit mean i dont need one? Okay so tomorrow i will have to start tearing it apart then.... if it should pull straight out like your saying it really shouldnt be hard....just a ***** to do. After that, i will take off the main bolts holding the tranny on and hopefully feel very good and accomplished that i pulled my first tranny out of a FWD car in 3 days with no help except you guys right now. Havnt felt so good about a one man team in awhile! Once i pull it ill make sure to post more pictures of the tranny itself...

    which part are you struggling with? to get it off the trans you get it free from the spindle first by removing the big nut and using a punch to drive it out if it doesn't just fall out. Then when the outside end is loose (the end at the wheel) you just stick a prybar between the trans case and the inner cv joint and pop it free. Sometimes they are stubborn and you have to try and pop it with the axle in different places (turn it) but it's really pretty easy. Hope that helps.
