i am doing a clutch for a buddy of mine this is the second one i have done the first one did not work well...i did the whole job with a pair of vise grips and a screw driver ..lol..i did it on the side of the highway lmao...that was many years ago and sense than i have boughten a couple thousand dollars worth of tools...and Alot more experience ...

Anyways i had to remove both axles to get the bell-housing to get at the clutch....but right after i did this i decided to read the haynes book i bought and i noticed it said in big caution letters to make sure if u remove both axles at once to put wooden dowles in to keep the gears or something from falling out or something like that....so am i screwed now or what?....

i have found a couple posts on here one person says hes done a couple of these jobs and removed both axles and everything was fine.

this car is a 93 ford escort 1.9 liter standard :eek: :eek:[/quote]

I've never removed both axels at the same time, because of that same warning so I don't know what you're going to be up against. When in doubt READ first.

if you can look into where the axle goes and you see the diff pin you're still fine. It's just a round piece that goes between the spider gears of the differential.
