Okay. The instructions for replacing this are below. Once the vehicle is in the air and the tire is removed this is pretty easy. If you need more help let me know.

Removal Procedure

  1. Raise and support the vehicle. Refer to Vehicle Lifting
  2. Remove the tire and wheel assembly.
  3. Remove the wheel drive shaft nut. Insert a drift (1) or a flat-bladed tool into the caliper and the rotor to prevent the rotor from turning.
  4. Carefully loosen the wheel drive shaft splines from the wheel bearing/hub assembly using a wood block and a hammer. The nut can be partially reinstalled to protect the threads.
  5. Important: Be sure that the wheel speed sensor wiring harness is repositioned away from the ball joint after disconnecting the electrical connector from the sensor. Disconnect the ball joint from the steering knuckle.
  6. Separate the wheel drive shaft from the wheel bearing/hub assembly, then support the shaft assembly.

  1. Assemble the J 45341 and the J-2619-A to the wheel drive shaft inner tripot housing assembly.
  2. Using the J 45341 and the J-2619-A, separate the wheel drive shaft from the transaxle, then remove the shaft assembly.
  3. Inspect the transaxle output shaft seal for damage and/or contamination and replace if necessary.
