Please help! Can't reinstall front axles after clutch job.
I am finishing up with a clutch job, and everything went well, even easy! Most people seem to have problems with getting the engine and trans to separate, and even more have trouble getting them back together. My problem is one that NO ONE else seems to have a hard time with. I can not get the F'ng front axles to go back into the trans!!!!
My car is an 05' Saabaru (WRX wagon), so there are no roll pins. I thought it would be one of the simplest parts of the whole job. I didn't fret at the idea of taking them out one bit, because I knew that I would be able to get them to pop right back in. Well now I'm going crazy. They aren't going back in.
What might I be doing wrong?
What might I be overlooking?
What tips/tricks might help?
If you would have normally replied, "They just pop back in.. not hard at all", then PLEASE think for a moment what else might be wrong and preventing them from just popping back in. What might I have done? What might be wrong? What!?! How!?! HELP!!!!
P.S. I've reattached all of the shifter linkage. Would it make a difference if I put it in gear instead of neutral? If so, Ok, but why?
