2000 Ford Escort ZX2. I began replacing my passenger side CV shaft. Although it was not necessary, I also removed the halfshaft that the CV shaft inserts into. (The book indicated use of prybar if you are not removing it and I didn't have enough space or strength to use a prybar to separate the two) For some reason, this other halfshaft will no longer reinsert back into the transfer case. It goes in far enough to just touch the splines, but no farther. No visible obstructions or damage are visible or "feelable" on either piece. Is there a trick to aligning them? Do I need a special tool to press it? It pulled straight out, no problems. I did not remove the driver side shaft. Help!
have the same problem?
