I took some pics... As you can see the right side axle/cup/hub whatever you call it is able to move side by side and when it moves all my fluid dumps out. The other side I cannot get to move whatsoever so I feel like this isn’t suppose to be happening and perhaps a nut/clip or some other restraint is suppose to hold this in place?? anyone know how these work or what might be missing?
Well so yes I discovered the problem. One side axle has about 1/1.5” side to side play. So i can pull the axle right out of the seal with no effort at all. I’m just guessing here but shouldn’t there be something that holds the axle in place to keep it from just sliding off and out of its seal?
I know it's very late to reply but I still want to share my experience here,maybe it will be helpful to others.
What I have is 2012 kubota rtv 900 and one of front cv joint axle (Driver side)was worn out.
So I went to the kubota dealer, they told me the front cv joint axles of 2009-2014 RTV 900 4x4 are the same and wanted to charge me $200 for a new one.
I think it's very expensive so google cv axle replacement cost online when I got home.
What I found it's between $50-$70 for a new kubota rtv 900 cv axle replacement, for example,Hex Auto Parts has kubota rtv front axle for sale ,only $60 free shipping.
Much cheaper and save me a couple hundred dollars.
Finally I got my axle for my 2012 kubota rtv 900 and install by myself in two hours.
Now I am waiting for spring and really want to ride my rtv 900 when the weather warms up.
