How do you get the cv joint off the axle on a 82 vw pickup?
The manual says remove circlip though an opening in the bearing race. There is no
opening in my bearing race so I can't see the circlip.
It's a real bear getting that off...you basically have to clean the joint of ALL grease and dirt to see into the tiny area to get the snap-ring pliers in to compress the ring and beat the joint of the axle. I ALWAYS recommend getting remanufactured axle assemblies...saves time, blood and sweat, and usually money.
