Forward-Most Univ. Joint In Fr. Ds: How?`


Recommended Posts

The clips should pop out without any special tools. You should be able to use a punch and a hammer to push one end far enough to hook a screwdriver between the clip and cap to pry it out, Sometimes they rust in so bad they will break and go flying so be careful.

I torch the cross out and then tap the cap in and then pull the clip. Use this method with all u-joints anymore, the newer ones are held in with a plastic epoxy that needs to be melted out anyhow.

 

I learned that last fall. Ugh. Plastic injected u-joints on a 2005 Dodge Ram (Cummins). I would have to say it is easier.
