93 Civic CV stuck in transmission
Any of you dealt with a CV axle end stuck to the transmission on a Civic? The new CX tranny for my 93 DX has the passenger side axle end in it still, and it hasn't budged. Bent a 4' crowbar on it, tried rapping it with a mini-sledge while prying, no luck. Access isn't the greatest since I already installed it in the car :rolleyes: Usually these things pop out easy, the old ones sure did. Any sure-fire ways to get this thing out? Next up I'm trying a big pickle fork and sledge hammer but i don't want to crack the case or something. We got a light and mirror and looked in from the drivers side and there is no visible issues (ie mangled circlip). Thanks for the help.

That sounds pretty stuck! I would just hit it with a wedge and a baby sledge until it pops but I don't know if this is the best way to do it...

All that holds it in is a "C" clip, I had one that was tough that I ended up just using a very flat pry bar on either side of the axle, if you try to pull it out from just one side then the axle gets pushed to the side and the clip catches, you need to pull is straight out, so two thin bars or large screw drivers work really well.
