P.s My 96 passed it MOT to day, fun times are here again!

CV joints should be available there, brand new.
I hope you succeed!

|09/02/2005 13:22:16||Tom K||Bill haven't been able to find the thread. Any other clues?
How tricky are the CV joints to change and what sort of time will it take? Will a hub puller be required (as the Haynes does mention it) and if l do need one can you get away with using a four nut type?
|09/02/2005 19:59:08||paul||unless youre going to replace the whole suspension upright, you need to pull the hub off the driveshaft (although the shaft will wtill need pressing out of the bearing after the upright is removed). I couldnt find a hub puller, but found a large gear puller from machinemart did the job nicely (cheap too!!)|
