Question NEED HELP with CV joints/axles

Have a US model 1998 ZX2 escort and need to change the passenger side axle. Are there any special tools needed? What is the basic procedure for removing and replacing?

Its a 5speed manual and while I have changed axles on other brands I have never done a Ford and am wondering if there are any things I have to watch for or any tricks/tips?

TIA

Mike

Re: NEED HELP with CV joints/axles

Is it a rear wheel drive or front wheel drive. I am guessing rear wheel, as per other Escorts. The proceedure is the same as per any other rear wheel drive car, undo the drakes, undo the retaining plate, pull the axle. FWD is different, but similar. remove the brakes, undo the bearing at the front, ( really big extension bar needed, maybe a meter long) remove disc etc., pull axle.
