What say you? I'm in the middle of it, and it can only stay apart for so long before my lovely bride starts asking lots of question.
The CV is not properly seated within the stub axle (spindle). If it won't come free, you will need to pull the spindle. It is critical to ensure it is seated fully and keep it pulled out while installing the hub and drive flange.Okay - well one thing leads to another - felt like everything should be cleaned and repainted, and now it's all back together but there is ZERO float on the half shaft. I can just see the groove for the circlip, but I cannot get it back on. I am certain that it is important, and I am also concerned that it won't move even a little bit in and out.
Am I missing something easy? And yes the races are fully seated on the hub, and the oil seal is 4 mm below the lip of the hub.
