Default Driveaxle replacement blues

Hi.
I'm in the midst of replacing the left and righthand driveaxles in my wifes
93 Camry with 2.2L engine, no ABS. Left side went fine, no problems, but
the right side is making me want to throw things......there is a carrier
bearing attached to the driveaxle that is inside of the motor mount bracket,
and the bearing race is seized into this bracket.......I'm faced with having
to remove the mount to work on this thing on the bench, but room is tight
and I'm having trouble getting to the top nut on the motor mount, for one,
and it looks like I'll have to cut the intermediate shaft to get it all
apart.
Anyone gone thru this before? I'd appreciate any ideas anyone might have,
the manual I have, a Haine's, says that to remove this shaft you simply
remove the bearing retainer bolt, then a snapring, then grasp the shaft and
pull.......I have to laugh or I'd start throwing stuff.
Help?

Ed

Ran into the same exact problem several years ago. Driver's side axle came
out within 5 minutes of removing the tire. Passenger side took much longer.
I even have the same Haines manual you have.

I used a come along and a steel tube braced against the frame to pull the
axle out. I wrapped the cable around the driveaxle with chains, put the
hook over the end of the tubing and started cranking. Pop! and here she
came. I had to buy another carrier bearing becuase it got bent a little
from all the beating it took. Talked to the Toyota service guys who said
this sticking problem is commonplace, said they usually put a torch to the
bearing to pop it free. If this doesn't work, they only replace teh outer
end, which is where the rubber boots break down. Good luck.

Thanks for the reply Fireant, I wound up only replacing the actual driveline
portions including the inner and outer cv's, and left the intermediate shaft
and it's bearing alone, the only thing that bummed me out a little was
paying for parts I could not put in, but the car is fine now, so.....
Thanks again,
Ed
