It’s bad enough you had an axle brake cutting short your last ride, you have spent hours trying to get the STUCK RZR AXLE CUP out of the transmission or front diff to no avail. If you’re working on a RZR then you are in luck. Polaris conveniently stamped holes in the front and rear of the frame to help you out. (The Turbo S does not have these holes up front.)
These holes are perfectly placed so you can slide a medium sized prybar or large screwdriver through to get in between the cup and the transmission. With the prybar inplace you can leverage it against the frame and not the transmission and your cup should pop out.
You may have to spin the cup a few times and wack it over and over but it will eventually work.
Rusty splines are why the cup won’t come out by just tugging on it. Before reinstalling any axle, make sure you clean the splines thoroughly.
A thin layer of grease or Anti-Seize lubricant will prevent this from happening again. If you ride in a lot of water or even live in a damp climate, we suggest pulling your axles, even when your car is new and greasing them up.
