Mitsubishi Repair Problems? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi,Where in the process are you currently, is the outboard end of the axle removed from the spindle and resting clear of the caliper/spindle so it has room to go out?
Thanks.There is an internal circlip that holds that in that can be a real bugger to get loose as it needs not just a popping action but very heavy load too.The tripot that plugs into the transmission has three sides to it that you need to be prying on from below.... are you using a substantial prying tool? We need something 24" or longer to pry it out, otherwise you won't have enough leverage.
We definitely need something 24" or longer to pop it loose... is nothing available or are you working on jacks and too close to the ground to have room?You won't break anything as long as you keep the pry bar on the tripot and leveraged against the small raised boss on the transmission.
The tripot is the "cup" of the axle that plugs into the transmission. The differential case will have a reinforced area on the bottom for you to use leverage against.
