Those cv shafts should just pop rite out the trans with a pry bar. Then you need to undo it from the hub. Then once off you must release the retainer that holds the cup to the shaft in order to replace the boot. Then reverse to put it all back. I hope that helps a little
More info than I had this morning, thanks!
I tend to grumble, but it is interesting to learn about new-to-me technology.
Does the p/s axle disconnect from the intermediate shaft (and the intermediate shaft from the diff) in the same way?
