Drive Train Axles Bearings problem
1995 Geo Prizm 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual
I have never did much work on axles or cv joints before. Especially on a geo. I pulled the old axles out without a problem. In the process of re-installing them I noticed there were seals on the old axles and not on the new ones. I compared the old seals to new ones that I purchased and it appears that there's only half of a seal on the old axles. I cannot tell if there is still a piece of the old seal in there or not. Also, I had to yank out of the old axles hard just to get them to release from inside the trans. Now how can I tell if I have the splines lined up and do I need to knock the crap out of the new axles to get them to go in? I don't care if I break the new axles, their replaceable. I just don't want to damage the inside of the trans. Then all the money I saved by doing this myself would have been spent on repairing what I've screwed up. Please, any advice is welcome. Thanks.
