I need thread on pulling AX 5

Can somebody point me to a thread on helping me remove my AX5 from my 92 yj. I am not sure if I have to remove the exhaust pipe or not. Also do I need to remove the starter...it has two torx bolts holding it on...doesn't seem like they connect to the tranny. Thanks

This is a basic repair that is covered in repair manuals such as Haynes or Chiltons. I would suggest picking one up.

Thanks....I have a book...sure looks like the exhaust is in the way....sure looks like the 4x4 handle needs removed...and I wonder about the starter. Anybody dealt with these items? I do not want to pull the tranny out, get stuck and have to remove any of these items.

If it's in the way, remove it. What could be simpler.

Just did a clutch replacement on my 92YJ. It is a lot easier if you remove the exhaust.

Pulling a manual from a 6 cyl yesterday/today and the exhaust is in the way on that engine. Not understanding why they want you to mark the driveshafts for reference, unless you're only pulling the transfer case end and sliding them apart at the slider joint.

This is really a case of use your judgement. If it's in the way you need to pull it whether or not the book says to.

BTW if it's not already apart, run the engine til the manifolds are hot then touch the downpipe studs with a candle. As it cools and pulls the wax in your odds of removing instead of breaking are much better

good luck!

Taking the exhaust out makes it much easier.
Removing the 4x4 handle and the shifter tower makes it much easier.
Starter needs to be removed.

Not sure if you have yet, but removing the transfer case first, and then the transmission makes it much easier as well.

X2 on this. If you've got a professional tranny jack they're easier to remove as a unit. If you're balancing on a floor jack or just manhandling it out, then remove & install them seperately. The individual weights are not bad at all.

replaced my ax5 twice(don't ask) + an internal slave cylinder. never had to remove the starter. Definitely better to remove the exhaust. Don't forget the crank position sensor( i think that's what it's called). If you don't have a trans jack, but do have a soft top/ no top, and access to a hoist of any kind(and a safe place to hang it over your jeep), you can use the hoist to lift/ lower the trans and t case. Hope this helps

Ps, while it is out, check/ replace your trans mount(again, don't ask)and if you do pull the starter for any reason, those bolts are not torx(unless changed from stock) they only require a 12 point socket or wrench.

don't forget the crank sensor, I did! Once!
ripped the wires right out of it, good thing I had a parts jeep. And the reason i mention the trans mount is this, mine was weak, but I put it back in anyway. When it broke loose, it led to a broken motor mount, and an trans that was stuck in gear, hence the second trans change.

don't skimp like I did, the $25 that a new mount cost would have been cheap compared to a new trans

Thanks again brizee...I got the crank sensor. Do you know what the single bolt mount is called....it sits next to the tranny mount? Mine is bent up...thought I would replace that too. And how do you get the handle off the 4x4 shifter...I see the tabs but it is pretty tight.
