CV axle help

I changed the clutch on my 1992 honda prelude and im putting the axle back on and i think its in all the way but im not sure. When i first put it in it when in about half way and i had to push it a good amount and then it slid in more but im not sure if its in all the way wanted to see if anyone could help me out to know if its all the way in? These are some pics of how it looks right now

Re: CV axle help

Put grease on the splines skipping every 3rd one so air can release as you slide it into the tranny. That also greases the seal and helps avoid leaking tranny fluid.

I take a segment of 2x4, say 6" long and place it against the knuckle boot and give it a couple good whacks with a 3 or 4 pound hammer to ensure the set ring is all the way 'home'.

Give it a good whack or two, rotate it 180 and repeat. When it's home all the way you'll feel the difference when striking the 2x4. It'll feel more like you hit a solid object.

Careful not to hit it so hard you damage the rubber boot.

Re: CV axle help

^^Good MO

By the pics it's looks like you got it. The little C-Clip can be a sketchy lil thing sometimes though.

Re: CV axle help

Looking at the pix it looks fine.

The 2x4 is just added insurance.

Check it from time to time for leaks. Sometimes the seal will leak while it's moving but not when sitting and not leave a drip spot. You'll know by see-ing tranny oil on the inner knuckle and on the bottom of the tranny itself.
