CV removal woes.

I am removing my right hand cv - have already removed left hand and half shaft and both were fine. Now with the right, I've immediately noticed shards of metal in the housing and am seeing that the right side is the point of failure.

However, the cv isn't budging. I've yanked on it as hard as I can. I've banged it both ways. No movement out.

If I pull it out it will budge a few millimeters and actually lock in splines to where it can be turned to where it activates the final drive. Push it back in and it spins freely as before.

Any tricks to getting this out? Remove entire swivel housing?

Picture just for a visual, even though everyone knows what it looks like...

Are you saying that it doesn't activate the final drive until you pull it out some..??..it should always activate (turn) the differential if you turn the shaft...if it spins freely then you've stripped the splines and that would explain why it only comes out a couple of Mm and then locks up...you may have to finish up getting onto the axle and prying it out...

Even with a 2 pinion diff you're gonna have to try and get around the spider (sun) gear shaft.. And unfortunately this is the sort side so you will need a bloody long drift to punch it out....

Thanks. Yes, it spins freely. Pulling it out a few mm it 'locks' of 'clicks' and then activates final drive as if there was no issue to begin with.

So by the slide hammer option I'm assuming that I am not missing a step.. It's just stuck and some level of force (pry, hammer drift, etc) will move it...

I'm in a tough spot because I just have it on axle stands in my apartment complex... Ugh. Beer time

You can't tap through 2 pin diff. The shaft for the pinions is in the way.

I would just keep going in. Take off the swivel housing. You should then be able to pry on the CV and get it out. If that does not work then pull the swivel ball.

Also have a look through the diff filler. You can see a fair bit that way. To see if there is anything bad with the diff.

There's gotta be a piece of metal lodged somewhere it shouldn't be, making it hard to pull. I would see if you can get another hand and continue to pull back and forth as someone rotates the far wheel. Maybe eventually it will get unlodged


I don't think your missing anything. Just something broke and is now wedging itself somewhere it shouldnt

All great advice - Much appreciated! I think I'll take another shot at yanking it out tomorrow. After that l will strip the axle further and hope I can pry it out!

I would take apart the swivel housing at the 6/ea 12 point bolts, and give a yank. Then you can get it sorted correctly, install new swivel seals and such on the reassembly.

The ends of the shaft splines inside the carrier can wear and "mushroom" a bit over time, making removal of the shaft harder. You just need to overcome this friction by the methods mentioned above.

Got out and did as directed today - was able to pry the cv after removing the swivel housing.

Turns out the short half shaft sheared in the diff. Pulled the final drive to get the sheared portion and it looks like no damage anywhere other than the halfshaft.

It seems like the drive flange should have stripped before this happened!?! Any insight?

Yah. That is normally where they break on a 10 spline axle.

Perfect time to convert to 24 spline.
