CV Joint Removal

Hello,
I have searched with no success. I am a Defender Noob and have learned a good lesson about lockers, big tires, and throttle! I have broken either a CV joint or an axle shaft and don't have the manuals yet. I need to get it fixed as soon as possible. Can anyone point me in the right direction with either a link or a post as to how to remove everything? I am a weekend warrior and have a '94 D-90.

I have found the following picture with the key as follows:

Front axle hub and swivel housing
1. Axle casing
2. Ventilation pipe
3. Axle shaft
4. Wheel studs and hub
5. Stub axle
6. Wheel bearings
7. Inner and outer hub seals
8. Axle shaft seal
9. Hub lock plate, thrust washer and nuts
10. Brake disc
11. Drive flange
12. Shim washer and circlip
13. Dust cap
14. Constant velocity joint/shaft
15. Thrust collar for CV joint
16. Roller bearing
17. Spacer
18. Circlip
19. Top and bottom swivel taper bearing
20. Top and bottom swivel pins
21. Spherical housing, seal and retainer
22. Swivel housing
23. Constant velocity shaft seal


Many thanks in advance,
Chuck

Its a lot of steps, but not all the difficult. You will need a cir clip tool, and you need the large hub nut socket (approx 2 3/32"). Often, you can use a drift to get the hub nut off. You will also need a tube of one shot cv grease for the new cv. You can give me a shout today on my cell if you have more questions.

Like David said it's a lot of steps but not that difficult at all. I broke the star and cage in the CV causing the splines to become damaged on my axle shaft. I would just recommend start taking the front hub apart you will be able to figure it out just by looking at it. Once you have the front hub apart and can get the CV out you can check for the damage.

Alan Dobbs website really help me with the removal of the ball bearings, cage and star. Here is a link to his website. http://www.yellowdefender.com/how_to...pair/index.htm
hope this helps.

Buy a new one or a used one. Make sure you keep oil in it.

It did have oil in it, but there is no drain plug on the CV housing. I've read somewhere that if there is no drainplug, you should use grease (One Shot CV grease)? Which do you recommend and how much? Also, if it's oil, how do you fill it?

Are there any torque values I should use?

To educate a Noob, how would this damage keep the truck from driving? It seems like the broken cage would not stop the axle shaft from turning and thus turning the wheel. I had to lock the CDL to get it to the road for a tow.

Many thanks,
Chuck

Been there and done that
One tube of CV grease per side. Fill plug is an 11 mm square thing on the front side of the swivel housing.

Also if you use the CV grease, turn the swivel housing out so it will go in easier.

I'd like to know as well. Unless the broken cage allows the inner part to move without turning the cage (but takes more force than you can apply by hand), you have something else broken as well.

What has happened to me was that the inner cage breaks and the pieces jam up in the hub and impede forward momentum. Also, as you continue to drive, the rest of the inner cage shatters and then eats the end axle shaft.

Red face Shafted!

Well, since the left CV cage was broken, I figured the right side was okay. Today I checked it just to be sure, and this attached picture of the right side components is why the truck was not driving forward unless the CDL was locked...

Now that you have both axles out anyway, pull the diff and make sure it is OK.

Why not upgrade the axles and CV's, since you have them out.

Contact Keith at Rovertracks and see how close he is to having his bomber set up back in stock. Pics like these make me happy I got in on his initial shipment.
