I recently replaced both rotors on my 97. You have to separate the rotor from the hub. They are actually 2 separate pieces.

Either remove the trans, or remove the front axle on a 4x4.Either remove the trans, or remove the front axle on a 4x4.

You will have to remove the transmission and pull the toqure converter out of the front of the trans. then you will see a seal in the center of the trans. Remove it with a screw driver, then clean and install new seal it will drive in with a hammer if your good. You may need a seal driver.

Yes , the transmission on a front wheel drive car is called the trans axle

A trans axle is a transmission and differential rolled into one in a front wheel drive vehicle. The trans axle delivers power from the engine to the drive wheels.

On front wheel drive vehicles it is easier and quicker to remove the trans and engine as one unit. then you can separate them if you wish

That depends on the type of vehical, front wheel drive or rear wheel drive. Rear wheel drive vehical: Removing the transmission is the best way to go. there is less to un-hook from the trans then the motor. Also during reassembly the torque converter has to be placed on the trans and turned twice, you will feel it click into place (go on further) it must be seated before reassembly. Front wheel drive: Sorry i have no experience with front wheel drive.

theres a lot to try to explain but i'll try.Remove air cleaner assembly[easier to get to top of trans]All sensors need to be disconnected,drain fluid [plug on drain pan] makes it a little lighter,remove cooler hoses at top,remove shift linkage[top of trans],remove torque convertor bolts and speedometer cable.Remove top trans mount bolts,jack up car to remove front tires,then remove cotter pins and nuts from front axles,it's also easier if you remove the plastic inner wheel wells,you'll have to split lower ball joints to pull out hubs and remove front axles from trans,now,remove all trans bellhousing bolts,leaving in two loose ones to hold trans in place,jack up car high enough to get trans out from under car-SUPPORT CAR- put trans jack under trans and remove two bellhousing bolts,trans is ready to come out,you may have to pry to get it loose

you have to remove trans.after trans is removed remove tork.conv.check bushing in front pump you will find that it is bad

The trans axle is the transmission on a front wheel drive vehicle

I'm pretty sure the 85 maxima was front wheel drive?

remove the trans. and get a seal puller

replace tail shaft seal. to do this, remove drive shaft first. It helps if the front of the car is pointed down a steep hill. This way you won't loose any trans fluid.

If it is 4 wheel drive then there is a solid axle in the rear and a trans-axle in the front. the trans-axel has two CV shafts on either side connecting to the front tires. If it is 2 wheel drive then there is just a solid rear axle. and your front tires mount to spindles.

The way I removed my manual trans was to start at the rear end. Pull the rear drive shaft, pull the front drive shaft, un bolt the transfer case from the transmission, support the transmission with a jack, pull the trans cross-member, pull the exhaust y-pipe, un-bolt trans from motor and there you have it.

first you remove the shift linkage, and all wires and lines going to and from the trans. Then you remove the drive shaft. You do this by loosing the u bolts that hold the drive shat to the rear end. then you support the rear of the trans with a jack or a piece of wood just something to hold it up. Then you remove the rear mount at the aft of the transmission. Then you unbolt the trans bell housing form the back of the block then slid trans down to the ground and its out.

Easiest to remove drive shaft to rear (4X4 remove front one also) Remove torqe converter bolts. Disconnectcooler lines from right side of trans. Put floor jack under trans. remove cross member. Then remove trans bolts from around bellhousing. Block engine up under oil pan. Take engine weight off trans then put trans back away from motor until you can get air wrench on fly wheel bolts. After changed put back together. Be care Full and put boards under oil pans to prvent damage.

6 bolts actually hold trans to engine. 4 from back, 2 from the front.6 bolts actually hold trans to engine. 4 from back, 2 from the front.

Yes and no. Hard to think of good answer but Trans-axle is where you have the transmission and axle drive unit built into one. Front wheel drive. But you can have a transmissione do both front and also supply power to rear axle, AWD(All Well Drive). 2000 is where everything starts to change, in some vehicles other then P/U trucks still use a regular trans and a transfer case to direct power to the front axle.

You rent or buy a hoist, undo motor mounts trans mounts etc then lift it over core support without trans or leave trans attached and roll it out the front. This is easiest way, but have to take apart front end

you have to un bolt engine at the bell housing where the engine and trans meet and and un hook wires from trans loosen or remove mounts un hook drive shaft and slide trans back be careful and check if any vacuum lines to to the trans too if vac lines go to trans u have to un hook them as well take torque converter off and then u can get to the front seal u pop the front seal off and pop a new one in then hook every thing back up and it is done

You have to remove the passenger front fender. The blower is located on the firewall inside the fender.

The yoke on the driveshaft of a gm turbo 350 trans has a small vent hole in it. If the trans is over filled to the point fluid comes out of it you will do serious damage to the trans if you try to drive the vehicle.

I believe it's called a trans-axle output shaft seal. Could also be the front differential pinion seal.
