Axle Replacement

Asked by Apr 04, 2010 at 05:01 AM about the 1990 Toyota Camry STD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I am having a problem getting the new upper tripod bearing to fit into the coupler housing attached to the transmission. Are there two different sizes? My car is a Japan Model (Leading character in VIN is a J), automatic trans and 4cyl. My local auto parts storeis of no help and the repair manual does not mention this.

Any help would be appreciated.

I do not understand .. WHen you purchase a reman axle it has the complete unit including the piece that goes into the transmission. Are you trying to install a partial USED unit ??

It did come complete. To get to the tripod bearing that inserts into the coupler attached at the trans, i had to remove the new coupler. Now the new tripod bearing wont insert. i dont see a way to remove the old coupler, looks welded to axle inside the trans.
