Myles I Pm'd him the full directions he should be good to go. And for putting those boots on Your right.. I hate doing those so bad I won't even try anymore. And he will have to loosen and remove the upper ball joint to get enough room to get the shaft back into the carrier bearing without damageing it. And always remember to use anti seize on the splines. Helps the next time YOUR removing... LOL

Now I know how I pulled a axle apart when removing it from the diff and had to use a blind bearing puller to get the other half of the shaft out of the diff LOL!! I need to start using anti seize. LOL!! Gary I'm getting some.

Gary thanks for info. New axle delivery Tuesday.

Axle removed only needs a boot. Going to check around and see what it will cost to repair.

FYI-dealer wants $78 to replace the boot.

I found the "kit" on line for $20. Includes Grease, clamps and boot.

Just need pliers for the clamp. Advance auto sells them.

Instructions on how to replace boot? In Maintenance manual.

I'll let you know if I'm successful or not.

So the new axle is on. Pretty straight forward following directions.

Take it for test drive and it looks like it wants to pop off again. If you look in the original picture you see three colors on the spline. Doesn't it look like its been riding with some of the splines exposed?

Anyway, I'm at a loss. Do I need to take it apart again and get it to catch again???

From what I see in the picture, the snap ring isn't in place and the axle wasn't in all the way. Are you sure there isn't a bent A-arm or the frame? Have you hit anything HARD lately?
Are the wheel bearings good? Something isn't letting that axle go in the whole way.

What axel did you buy and did it come with a new spring ring? When you installed did it snap in place?
I know on rzr's there have been some issues with after market spring rings not holding the axel in.
As Monkeywrench asked did you do any damage lately that could have caused another problem.
You can try to re-seat it as is but you'll prob. have to start over.

Monkey-that's the old axle and the way I found it. Bearings are good and no bent a arm.

Gary- aftermarket axle with new circllip.

Jim. I'm actually a member there. Did not see that post. And I think that's exactly what's happening with mine!

I did not hear a snap ( as the circllip grabbed). But I yanked it and it did not pop out. It was clean and I lubed with anti seize. Will try one more time and then do what the last poster did. Move the diff 1/16" towards right or passenger side.

Sounds like polaris had a template problem with the machine that drills holes!!!!
