Replace cv axle passenger side

Recommended Posts

1998 es300 150,000 miles. Any advice on replacing the passenger side CV axle after a motor mount has been replaced. I went through all the typical problems with this had to cut the CV axle out that was in there and press the bearing out of the carrier, just about pulled my hair out. Now I am reinstalling and the CV axle does not want to slip back into the transmission differential. I have tried lightly tapping on the outer end of the CV axle with a block of wood And just don’t feel like this is the proper way to do it. I have measured the new CV axle. I do not have a micrometer but it all appears to be the same size. I’m wondering if I need to loosen the motor mount back up. Any suggestions?
