2002 chevy trailblazer_ls
I got it almost out but how do you get it out of the front differntial? I tried pulling and prying but cant seem to get it out. Any help is appreciated
What was the answer? I'm curious because my cv axle just busted out of the awd actuator and I didn't have time to even think about fixing it myself so I paid a shop nearly 1,000 and the whole time I was thinking to myself do I even need this right now as long as I have plans on using awdcv axles
Would it hurt anything if i removed a cv axle and didnt replace it right away? I have a busted cv axle and dont have the funds right now to replace it but it is the only vehicle i have to drive to work. Any help would be appreciated. I dont really want to mess it up.
Sorry I'm just now getting back to you. So, according to the "transmission specialist" I spoke with, in theory we don't have to have the cv axle if we don't plan on using all wheel drive except for the fact that the design of wheel housing requires that the cv axle be in place to keep itself from tearing apartWhat was the answer?

Exactly what I thought! Question... On the highway cruising at about 45 and engine starts free revving. All gears simply disappear. Shop says new transmission needed. They order it and install it. Still doing the same thing! 2005 trailblazer ls 4.2 with awd option??? Any ideas?no, wont hurt anything, you can remove the cv axle, but need to use the stubby end to keep the wheel bearing in place.
break the joint closest to the wheel and reinstall that.
iif you really wnat to disconnect 4wd completely, remove the drive shaft connecting to the transfer case. from what i hear, its not that hard.
its a diy cheap way of keeping the vehicle on the road in 2wd, without the expensive repairs (especally on a 12 year old vehicle) of front differential or transfer case repair/replacement.
