1998 Toyota Camry Repair Question
1998 Toyota Camry axles
How do I pull out the passenger side axel (out of the carrier bearing)
You'll need a socket large enough to remove the axle nut, and a tool to break the ball joint free. Then just pull the strut rotor and all outward until the cv-joint clears the knuckle, I would change the whole shaft, Reanufactured axles are pretty cheap, and it's quicker and easier than messing with seperating the old joint! Use a bucket under the inner joint to catch any tranny fluid that might leak out! If you have trouble with the inboard joint, use to large flat blade screwdrivers, or prybars and pop it out of the differential...
Toyota says to disconnect the tie rod and remove the fender apron and seal as well, and drain the tranny first.
