You are definitely right about the engine swap. I think I've been overthinking it alot. Picked up a axle today and I'll be swapping it in a few!

Look up "crows foot flare wrench", that's typically what you would use to torque a bolt that you can't get a socket onto, to remove the bolt however you would just use an open/box wrench. If you can get a gear wrench on it that will speed things up immensely.

Everything was going great! Until I got to the last bolt which decided to strip on me lol. So now I'm at a standstill until thy wife gets home and I can use the other car. I did notice this though



Seems as though you can use and Allen key of some sort (or maybe a hex) to remove it just in case the bolt strips?

Tune in later to find out lol. Also I still have the option to remove the 3 bolts at the diff but it seems a 1/4 ratchet socket combo would work best because of the lack of space

Update.

Torx or hex socket didn't work, I'm assuming the bolt is seized so it's either the chisel and hammer technique or a bolt extractor. Might just forgo the headache and remove the three bolts in the differential. Thinking a 1/4 ratchet might do the trick

now i feel like crap for telling you it'd be easy. i hate stuck fasteners and i get plenty with my 06 in new england. i'd heat the crap out of that one and try the hex head wrench again before i gave up on it. unless you already stripped out the head...

Oh it's stripped lol. Was hoping inserting the t30 on top would do the trick but no dice

It's never a fun time when it comes to suspension (for me anyways) I removed the boot so I could slip an extension and a ratchet on it and it worked but bolt is still stripped. Sigh

Lmao it was a pain but I did, grabbed an axle from the junkyard and swapped it out. Unfortunately I'm only using 5/6 bolts but they've been holding on just fine lol

I had extra bolts lol. Just was so frustrated after the whole ordeal I never drilled out the remaining bolt that was left on the other side of the axle lmao. It's probably quite easy but haven't gotten around to it yet. Ive been checking them weekly and so far so good lol. And yes very sketchy lol

As a person who never worked on cars before. This car is extremely difficult to work with. question for you our G's are pretty much same mileage. Have you done a trans flush on your car before? I havent a lot of ppl tell me not to and suggest me to do a drain and fill instead. But when i go to infiniti they tell me there is no transmission bolt. is this actual true? Thats pretty much the only fluid i havent replaced.

Me personally I don't touch the trans fluid because I don't know the last time it was serviced. If you decide to I would go with a drain and not a flush.

You won't ever hurt the transmission on these newer vehicles by drain/filling fluid with the proper fluid. You WILL hurt it by ignoring the service interval, especially since it doesn't have a real filter but rather a fine mesh screen to catch large chunks.

All the friction material is washing around through the transmission and will take it's toll on the valve body solenoids and cause excessive wear on all the other friction plates.
