DESCRIPTION & OPERATION
Power from transaxle is transferred to driving wheels by 2axle shafts. Both axle shafts use Constant Velocity (CV) joints atinner and outer ends. CV joints are enclosed in CV boots, andconnected by an intermediate shaft. Intermediate shaft is splined onboth ends.Retaining rings retain intermediate shaft in both inner andouter CV joints. A retaining ring retains inner CV joint stub indifferential side gear. Outer CV joint stub is splined into wheel hub,and secured by a spindle nut. Left axle, on most FWD applications, hasa dynamic damper to reduce vibration. See DYNAMIC DAMPER INSTALLATIONSPECIFICATIONS table.
TROUBLE SHOOTING

BAND & BOOT IDENTIFICATION
Band identification numbers are stamped on inside edge ofband. See Fig. 1. Boot identification numbers are stamped on largestridge of boot. See BAND & BOOT APPLICATION table.NOTE: The following are possible types of Constant Velocity (CV)joints used on axle shaft: Birfield Joint (BJ), DoubleOffset Joint (DOJ), Rzeppa Joint (RJ) and Tripod Joint (TJ).Determine type of CV joint used prior to disassembly. SeeAXLE SHAFT SPECIFICATIONS table. Note type of boot andlocation prior to removal. See BAND & BOOT APPLICATIONtable.
