For the life of me I can not knock off the outer cv joint off a axle I started with the Bently instructions with an aluminum mallat the I moved up to a steel 3 pound sledge and it will not pop off the axle.
Does the axle nut have to be unbolted from the hub for some reason, any help or advise would be appriciated, I am trying to make some stubs to roll the car around

Re: outer cv joint issue (toplessvw)

there should be a retaining clip in there somewhere... u need a special pair of pliers or good pair of wrenches push them apart then pull. might wanna use a vise to hold it still. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

I got it off. I trashed the old cv joint but I just had to beat it like a red headed stepchild, while the other side came off with no effort, aluminum mallat my a$$ I had to use a sledge hammer to get it to budge.
