Well, ok maybe I didnt do it with a screwdriver. Might have been a pry bar but still lol. Ive used em to pop out many shafts on cars but for some reason this one didnt want to come out. (also yes its the one on the right by the brake disc).They are CV shafts. Drive shafts are between the trans/transfer case and the differential.
And it's the right side, the way I can tell is it is up against the brake rotor.
I find it amazing you got enough leverage with a screwdriver to snap it like that.
it should have a dust cover in the end to keep the dust and other contamanints out of the bearing grease so just punching trough will not work unless you plan on replacing that dust coverThe only suggestion I could make to anyone with this issue is removing the left one which would mean taking off the boot and the clip holding the bearings in the cup and pull it out. Then take a punch or something and place it on the end of the right cv axle shaft from inside the left side of the joint and trying to pop it out that way. Hopefully this doesnt sound confusing lol
This one was in there REALLY good. I didnt see it moving even a little until it broke.Dave,
Was the inner CV joint loose in the brake rotor hub like it wanted to come out, but wouldn't? Mine wobbles around and will slide out about 1/16 inch but will not budge beyond that.
You sir are correct and man I wish it was a joke.... :steamed:I don't think those are the lug nuts that is the brake rotor. I wish it was april fools
