Question about cv axle 98 v70 awd

Post by Jamvo » Fri Mar 29, 2019 11:56 am

So I’ve been batteling this cv axle (passenger front) for two weeks now. First the parts got messed up in shipping, and took a week longer to come, then I couldn’t get the dang axle nut off. Finally got that off to find out I got the wrong axle. So it’s going to be another week for that to come. I only have a 1 car garage, so it’s taking that all up. I need to do the brakes and oil on my daily like ASAP. Can I limp it out without the passenger cv (the one I removed it completely destroyed at the outer joint so can’t throw it back in), I swear I saw somewhere in the forums of someone doing that?! I would roll it out of my garage but getting it back in without driving it would be the hard part. It’s fairly flat besides the slight incline into the garage. I feel like it would work physically, but wouldn’t the trans just leak like crazy!? Thanks for the help in advance

Without a load on both drive wheels the differential will just spin and you will sit still - just like how one wheel spins on ice in winter. Just get someone to help push the car back in when the axle comes!
