You're going to need an axle puller and a slide hammer, or you may be able to do it with a ball joint tool or a pry bar but the axle puller is best. You probably should change the axle seal when you remove it also so you'll need a seal puller too.i have to change the cv axle on my 90 corolla i just bought and ive never done it before. i know my way around cars i was just wondering if theres anything special i should no before buying the axle which i dont even no the price of and replacing it?
if its the A131L, the 3 speed, the diff is actually seperate, and has its own drain plug and fill hole on the back side. no pan pulling. the diff I believe holds 1.5 quarts.If it's an AT you'll have to pull the pan (get a new filter and seal)
