Is the spline allowed to come out of the shaft in the transmission?
Yes it is. The spline is part of the shaft.
It has to be able to get longer or shorter during turns. hence the spline to allow it to move.
Good morning FordNut.
Good morning back at ya. Happy Valentines Day sweetheart
Opps. just kidding all in fun eh?
ROTFLMAO! Yea happy VD to you to, Darling! LOL
How can you get the spline out? Im having trouble getting it to come out.
Large hammer and ply bar. You do have the brake assembly off and out the way, right?
Yes. And the cv shaft is already off and everyone has been telling me to pull out but its coming out extremely hard.
If you can see the splines soak them with PB Blaster. Let is soak for a bit then continue with the hammer and large pry bar/crowbar. Soak and repeat.
The problem i might the having is the ring on the spline inside the shaft isnt compressing like its supose to to so how can i make it to compress or will lubricating it make it work?
I just YouTubed a video on it. The guy just got behind it with a curved pry bar and walked his bar around it and it popped right off in a few minutes. No snap ring to worry about.
Could you send me the url?
Sorry I don't know how to do that. Just go to YouTube type in rendezvous shaft removal. It was like the second one. The guy is from Canada, Wisconsin, Minnesota or the UP.
Sorry i cant find it.
