REMOVING CV JOINT FROM AXLE

1992 Ford Festiva

Drive Train Axles Bearings problem
1992 Ford Festiva 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 190000 miles

Hi,

I am trying to remove the CV joint from the axle while the inner part of the axle is still sitting in the gearbox.

Is there a way to remove the CV from the axle without removing the whole axle?

It seems to be held in with a clip of some sort, but I cannot see one! There is about 1mm of play on the shaft with the CV.

Or how do I remove the whole axle if this is the only way?


Thanks!

Use a ball peen hammer and just tap it off! I recommend the remanufactured axle, just use two prybars or large screwdrivers and pop out the old axle, put a bucket under it!
