Folks, I purchased aftermarket axles for my 89 CRX/ Vtec swap. Unfortunately, I failed to remove the knuckle ring before installing the axles. Some folks called these "spacers" but it sure didn't seem like a spacer to me. I seemed like more of a dust shield. So bottom line, I didn't remove it. (I did remove the seals though). So I installed the axles, tightened the hubs up, etc. and was calling it quits for the day (still have a tad more wiring to do). Anyway, the car wouldn't roll, even with the tranny in neutral or clutch in. I couldn't believe it. So I went to pull the axles and see what the heck was up. I pulled the driver's side with some difficulty and sure enough there was the darn knuckle ring stuck on the outboard portion of the alxe. That was probably why it was binding, so yes I removed it. (the tranny was fine otherwise and the axle could spin it. Here's the problem, I can't remove the passenger side axle. I wedged a large screwdriver, no go. I used a chisel as a wedge like I did on the driver's side. I tapped it to wedge the axle from the tranny case. It's out about 1/4" by that is absolutely as far as it will go. Now I can't get the passenger side axle either back into the tranny or out. Any ideas what's holding the axle up? I called the axle vendor up and he suggested the following: Remove the boot band from the inner hub, carefully extract the axle guts (spider, rollers). Then tap/hammer the inner hub back into the tranny. I tried this, it didn't work. I pounded using a hammer (against a block of wood) and even a sledge hammer (against a block of wood). No go. If anyone's run into this problem and solved it, let me know how you accomplished it! (I'm stuck, literally and figuretively). Thanks, Dave K. Thanks again.
