OK so I have read the axle replacement for ea series cars on the site. Saying that I have ran into a problem. When I went to knock the pin out of the whole, its stopped at the end and it wont pull out to save my life. I even tried drilling it. Broke two bits. I have tried twisting on the end and pulling on it but it wont pull out. Any help would be great.
Thanks Tim

Yeah - drilling spring steel is pretty futile.

At this point you probably have a real mess on your hands. You'll just have to knock it out - try to work it back and forth and get a proper pin punch - the pin is 6mm. 3/16" pin punches work ok, but a 5/32" is better and a proper 6mm is even better yet (hard to find).

Thanks. I got it out. Just came in to order some pizza and check the site. Now to get the new one in. Man I hate this type of work. I'd rather be modding then repairing. But after this its a much needed stereo:headbang: and then a 2inch lift.:grin:

good job. maintenance sucks, but enjoy the fact that you did it and didn't pay someone $150 to do it.
