I need the driver side front axle replaced on my 2013 Ranger 900 XP. When I pull on it, it’s loose and has lots of play. Looking for recommendations on a good ATV mechanic or repair shop in the DFW area that I can take my Ranger. TIA

If you can get in Todd Kirby in Rowlett Polaris ATV Repair is a great dude to get to do it. He stays pretty busy and the last time I tried to get mine in for some maintenance we never could get our schedules to align.

Good luck.

Yeah, I’ve watched some videos. It doesn’t look too hard. I’ve already ordered the axle. Hopefully it will pop right out when I pull on it…..otherwise, it might get ugly. I have plenty of tools and floor jacks etc. thanks

Is the play your seeing in the suspension of the chassis? are the rubber grometts or holders where tie rods and support brackets all missing? Mine is a
2009 all the rubber spacers in bottom line is all gone, rides ruff, but all intact. Dealer want over 700$ for repairs, i refuse to go that route, will sell as is,
figure after 11 yrs i got my moneys worth! thinking about another one, but now a 7 week wait plus here in texas dealers what im told....
This one is a 700 EFI single seat. Awesome machine, yes getting another one, not sure if i want a crew cab?



Be safe all.....

I’m not sure I understand your question, but when I pulled on the axle there was lots of play by the joint next to where the axle goes into the gear box. I ended up taking it to Todd Kerby, who is a nice guy and I had other things that needed to be repaired, including, the rack and pinion steering, all the bushings and one of the wheel bearings. I probably could have done all these repairs myself but it’s a better use of my time for me to work harder at my day job and pay a professional for repairs on my toys.
