1985 Mazda glc axle removal
how do I remove the drivers side axle from the transmission on a 1985 mazda glc
Take the wheel off, unbolt the main bolt on the hub and turn aside the rotor. You may need to unbolt the steering knuckle ball joint, the brake caliper, and the strut assembly also to make room for the rotor and hub to turn out of the way of the axle spline
Pull the other end of the spline out of the transmission and you have removed your half shaft.

All front wheel drive cars are more or less the same procedure.
Please let us know how it goes.
