Front Right CV Axle - With Driveshaft support base vs with Intermediate Shaft

363 Views 9 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  kevinschyf
I'm trying to replace my front Right CV axle on 2016 Honda Pilot (AWD/6Speed). I bought a right front CV Axle (CV boot on each end). I'm struggling to separate the old CV axle from the inner axle at the support base. I did notice you can buy one with the Intermediate shaft included as one assembled unit. Does anyone know if there are some versions that don't come apart at the support base? ie: should I be able to separate the old CV axle at the support base and install my new one, or is it possible my vehicle requires me to remove the support base, pull the CV axle and inner axle out and replace as one unit? (see attachment - 2 is "with driveshaft support base" and 3 is "with intermediate shaft")

I don’t see any reason for it not to come out. It appears that a slide hammer is the necessary tool to use with a chain around the cup.

Yes, thanks for sharing the experience. Will you be trying the slide hammer chain method?
