Remove A Broken Can-Am Maverick X3 Front Axle Tip
It’s very odd how the front axles in the Can-Am Maverick X3 are two different lengths. The left (driver’s) side is slightly longer than the passenger side. The long splined shaft has been known to break off internally exactly where the retaining clip groove is in the shaft. If this happens, you will see a gap between the housing of the front differential and the stub axle on the driver’s side and you may not feel 4WD working. In this case, the half shaft will be very easy to remove, but due to a small rod in the center of the diff, the broken piece is very hard to get out. Here’s the easy way.
