CV joint/stub axles replacement

Recommended Posts

I'm not seeing any DIY on replacing the front CV joints and or stub axles.  I assume this is because it is really easy...  I'll take pictures just in case.


Tools needed:

32mm 12 pt socket.  (not 36mm as some online guides suggest)

I have bought new fronts as well and will be doing this myself just been putting it off. 131kmi on my 04 Turbo. I have an Assenmacher socket I'll order too, for that axle nut. Very high torque spec on that nut and was curious how you'd do that.

I used a short breaker bar with a floor jack under the end to get the nut loose.  I believe it's 380ft-lbs but not positive.  A 2-3 foot long wrench means ~200lbs of force so either reverse the floor jack plan, or stand on it.  I probably won't even bother if I don't have a torque wrench with that range handy, just make it REAL tight with my breaker bar.  I bought to the socket at Northern Tool.  You may want to get a deep well so you don't need an extension to reach it.
