2005 Arctic Cat 4x4 Axle Replacement???

Recommended Posts

:confused:I know I have asked this before but just want to be sure! The axle's do just " pop " out correct? I have never taken one apart before. I tore a boot and toasted the cv joint. I have a slide hammer and will attempt this tomorrow. Does anyone know what a shop will charge to replace one? Sorry its been a long time since I have been on site but with two kids in hockey and construction the way it is did not have the money to mess with it. Hockey is over know but unfortunatly I tore my rotator mucles in shoulder and will be out of work till June. I now have nothing but time to mess with stuff so figured I would get the ATV ready for summer.

After trying myself gave up. I am not supposed to do anything with my left arm and this was a little to involved to try with one good arm so I took it over to my dads and explained to him what I was going to do. We decided we would wait till tomorrow and that was that. My dad just called me an hour ago and he has it out already. One light rap and it was out!

Nice, glad to hear that. Most of the time you can take a small pry bar or large flat head screwdriver, and wedge it between the case and joint. Then edge it out.

What type of ATV was this on?

      Was using the quad the other day to shuttle wood from my pickup to my wood pile.  When the job was done I turned off the Quad and heard a bit of a racket from the front end.  When I got down underneath the sound seemed to be coming from the fan housing.  fan was moving in spurts and not quickly... much like a computer case fan that's had it's day.  What I know.
      Temp sensor is ok, as the fan tries to activate fan is getting some voltage as it is attempting to spin.  When I first bought it used I tested the fan direct to battery and it was fine. The fan was working ok even not direct wired as I went on a couple of rides and when stopped and idling the fan did run Seems to be free spinning with my finger read up in the manual and they require me to drop the rad.  now I'm not opposed to that as the rad has some damaged areas I want to try and straighten out.  But if I can get the fan working without, I can leave the rad as it is until next year.
      Fan assembly is about 300 bills, any work arounds or alternatives?  I even thought large computer case brushless fan.  smaller ones are about $7 larger ones better quality probably far below the 300.  They run standard 12v DC.
      Anything I should be doing before dropping the rad... other than check for obstructions even though it seems to spin, and trying to hardwire it to the battery again for a test to see if it acts the same?
