Very simple. Shops charge by the hour for half shaft replacement, so hours are high.

On Toyotas, much like Hondas, removal is fairly easy. Jack up the front end, secure with jack stands and remove the tires. Put a drift in the fins of the rotor through the caliper. Loosen the half shaft bolt. Remove the calipers and tie them off so that the hoses do not stretch or get in a bind. Remove the caliper mounting bracket. Remove the tie rod nut and separate with a tie rod separator tool. Loosen the lower ball joint nut and separate with a ball joint separator tool. Lift the entire spindle unit up and swing it out so tha the half shaft is out of the hub. Using a small pry bar, remove the half shaft from the transaxle case. There is a small clip on the end of the half shaft which is used as a retainer to hold it in the transmission. Make sure that you have a drip pan below because fluid will run out a little. Replace the same way and torque to specs. Should only take a couple of hours to remove the old shafts from both sides. Also, don't think about rebuilding the axle if you don't have to because it is usually cheaper and the rebuilt unit sometimes comes with a "lifetime" replace warranty. Repair On!!!

I had the same thing happen to a 91 celica. I pryed. I pounded. I even used a hydrolic wedge. I finaly gave up and just replaced all the bearings. come to find out, my prying, pounding and wedging must have pulled something loose in the transmission/diferential because the car just grinds when it is in gear.

#1 axle is the steer axle, #2 axle is the front drive axle, #3 axle is the rear drive axle.

Only if the rear axle is a drive axle.

it should be with the c -clamp that is already installed on the axle. if it don't stay on, the clamp may need to be changed.

The exact same thing as the first drive axle.

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.

When working on a car, it can come in handy to have a diagram of the parts. The parts diagram of this cars rear axle can be found in its maintenance manual.

My Toyota Sienna 2000 axle nut measures 30 mm Sprayed the threads as I will be replacing an axle shortly. Probably the same size.

Odds are the diaphragm is shot, in the central axle disconnect (CAD). You need to check if you have vacuum at the front axle, and if the vacuum switches from side to side, when you engage four wheel drive. If it does, your CAD is bad. If not, trace your vacuum lines to find the leak.

Wheelbase on heavy 3 axle trucks is measured from the center of the steer axle (1st axle) to the trunnion, or the midpoint BETWEEN the 2 drive axles (axles 2 and 3), not to the center of the rear drive axle (axle 3). Axle to axle is only used on 2 axle trucks. Note: be careful using wheelbase to calculate bridge laws, which can use 1st axle to 3rd axle measurements in its calculation depending on the state/province.

You need to exchange the front axle, transfer case, and the transmission to change a 1992 2-wheel drive to a 4-wheel drive. It is not an easy project and will require a lot of time and effort.

My Chilton's manual says to drop the front crossmember holding the front drive axle ! You will also need to remove the front driveline from the front drive axle ! Chilton's book #68602 !

The 2001 Forrester front drive axle nut torque specification is 90 pounds. The front drive axle nut should be torqued in 45 pound intervals.
