1992 ford probe axle

I bought a new pass side axle. It did not come with the bushing mount (that is bolted to the engine block) or the shaft from bushing to tranny. I took off the old axle but can't figure out how to get the 2 pieces apart. I thought it might be pressed in, but when I try to pull the old axle from the bushing it does move about an 1/8" and then stops.

You probably got the wrong axle. Typically those things come with the axles. Or the axle is 2 shafts usually disconnect after the mount on the trans.

now on your drivers side, you need to pop the axle out of the trans. it is held in by a C clip. try a big screw driver between the trans, and axle hub stub that goes into the trans, and try to get it to pop. if that doesnt work, take two of them, and pry at the top, and bottom at the same time with help, and it might pop. if that doesnt work, (and usually the 1st thing i even try) use a ball joint separator/ pickle fork. slide it between the trans and hub, and hit the base with a hammer. that gets them out the vast majority of the time.

now onto the passenger side. this is a bit easier.

the axle on this side does not go to the trans, but connects to the midshaft. all it does is slip onto the midshaft, so once you have the end out of the wheel hub, you just have to tap the back side of the axle from the midshaft. a few light wacks with a hammer directly to the hub usually get it going.


found this in another forum

looks like its a 2 piece axles on the passenger side

Thanks. I took a few smacks with a hand sledge but it finally came apart.
