HELP!!! Can't get CV Joint apart !

I recently noticed that my left outside CV Joint boot was tore. So I ordered my parts and proceeded to tare the machine apart to work on it...I didn't get very far... I got both wheels and hubs off and raised the top a-arms up so I could work on the driveshafts and pull them off (the right driveshaft has to come off to get the left off) and the right driveshaft will NOT come off ! I thought the spline on the CV Joint was seized into the inboard joint so I've had it soaking with PB Blaster for 2 days and I went at it again tonight. I've had everything from a 3 foot prybar to an air hammer on it and it will not budge, which is sooo frustrating when in the manual they say a flatblade screwdriver should do it. I have noticed that the splines are actually moving just slightly inside the inboard joint but I'm guessing that the stopper ring on the end of the splines is binding up. If anybody could give me any hints or tips on how to get this thing tore apart it will definitely save me from pulling alot of my hair out. Thank you.

Thanks for trying to help but I already have it tore down that far. I am down to removing the right driveshaft from the machine. I sure do appreciate it though !

you dont have to remove the right shaft to get to the left. there is a clip in side the inside cv joint, pull the inside boot down and clear away some of the grease arounf the inside of the joint by the lip and you should see a circlip that needs to come out once thats out the axle will just slide out, and one the very end is another clip that will actually remove the bearings and race then slide the boots off

Omg. You have no idea how simple that sounds compared to what I've been trying to do. I swear if I would go to the Dr. right now I would fail a blood pressure test b/c I have just been so frustrated it almost makes me sick every time I walk past our shop and see the quad sitting there. I guess that shows there are much easier ways to get something accomplished when you dont listen to what the manual says to do. I am not kidding when I say that the manual says remove the right driveshaft then start pulling the brake disc and inboard joint out. Thank you so much sir, I will forever be in debt.

it is a pain in the ass because most of the work has to be done between the frame rails and a-arms, i'm guessing the manual wants you to dissassemble the rear final drive, and the link that was posted is true for the left but the inside joint stays on the quad

For future reference just pull on the axle a couple of times (like a poping in/out motion) then turn axle 1/8 or so then give it a couple more pops then turn again repeat until it comes out of the carrier. Has always worked for me when the keeper on the splines won't fall down and come out. Don't ever use a prybar!

Thank you ein, I will remember that if it ever absolutely has to come off in the future, I was about ready to rig something up to fit a slide hammer over it but it would be the same concept. And yea, the manual wants you to pull the entire inboard joint out to get the left driveshaft off and from what your telling me I say f*** that !
