Honda HR215K1HXA Drive Axle

Hi all:

Drive axle keeps falling out on engine side. Replacing clip didn't help. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Not quite sure I understand what is falling out of place.

Pin holding driveshaft in place comes out and then driveshaft falls out so there is no more self propelling. Not sure if that answers your question. You are the only one who has responded so not sure what that means either.

Sorry for the delay in getting back. You said you replaced the clip, and as long as it is in place the pin shouldn’t fall out. Especially if the rubber boot is in place too. If I remember right, the two pins are supposed to be parallel to each other also.

Thanks so much for your help.

There is only one pin. You slide the drive shaft into the shaft on the engine side and then place the pin through the matching holes and then slide the clip into place. Hope I am describing this well. The clip is not the same size for its entire circumference. If the clip were to somehow rotate a bit it would be possible for the pin to start coming out. I have no idea why this is or if the clip is not supposed to rotate or what? I thought for sure the clip replacement had solved the issue but when I checked it the other day the pin was starting to come out. I am not sure why the boot would be a factor as you mentioned. I am not a mechanic but I love to try and solve these problems myself and love to learn. Mower is 18 years old so I don't want to spend much money on it.

The following is a link to the parts picture if you are bored. Also a link to a youtube video that shows replacement of shaft like my setup.

Any thoughts or have I given you a headache?

When I referred to the two pins being parallel to each other, I mean the one that attaches the drive shaft at one end and the one that attaches to the transmission at the other. Just as they appear in that video.

The clip should slip on and snap tightly around the shaft locking the pin in place. The boot then slides up over the end of the shaft covering the pin and clip.

Thanks for your help. The clip is narrower in one location and the pin could physically slip past it. Don't know why this happens especially when I had the thicker part of the clip over the pin. Still puzzled.

I guess I’m still confused as to how that pin can get passed the clip. I’ve never had anything like that happen to mine or any I’ve worked on.
I looked at my spare parts inventory and each of the clips on the driveshafts is nothing more than a “wire” that snaps into a grove that holds it in place on the shaft over the pin.
Is yours different than this?

he clip should be a tight fit on the housing and not rotate easily
Even the rubber boot without the clip will hold the pin in.
If yous is popping out then the coupling is probably stuffed & the pin is transmitting drive which it is not designed to do

Sorry for my tardiness. I will see what I can do to better explain.
