So the son and I replaced the cv axle and we cant get it to snap in and keeps coming out. The one we took out was snapped in to place hard so I cant figure out y this on wont. It si a reman. so could the length of the splines be different or Trans be giving out and just to loose to snap in or? Not sure just guessin now Any help is appreciated. Might just be better to rebuild tranny. any thoughts? Thanx

Not sure if it makes a difference or not, but when you putting in the half shaft, the snap ring, its facing up? I know I read that somewhere that it needs to be facing in that direction (there is a write up on here about it).....I followed that guide when installing mine and had no problems. Went right in and held!

I thought it said to be open down think something that simpl;e could sto it from snapping in? Might. Im going to take it off tomorrow and redo. I think my tranny is shot also. MIght redo the whole thing:(

Yeah, it does say open side down......huh. I did mine open side up and it went in no problem. Its a snap ring, and I cant really say how it being a certain direction or not would hurt it. I've had no problems since the install.

We just did the drivers side CV axle in my '96 ragtop. We couldn't get it to snap in at first. We used a heavy hammer (10 pounds) to lightly tap, but to no avail. So we got serious and used a sledgehammer. Wacked it a couple of times, and it clicked right in! (It's not like he just went crazy or anything; my buddy just got a little more leverage and power into the taps.) I was a little nervous about using so much force, but it's been absolutely fine the last three weeks! So... Maybe you need to "convince" it a little bit more?

thats exactly what I was wondering Im going to try it. Thanx for responding. As soon as I get this done I m probably going to rebuild my tranny anyway. Time to whack a axle!!! laugh.gif
