4.5L 04 Cayenne S Inner CV Joint

Recommended Posts



First time posting and in need of some advice as to how screwed I might be...


My front left inner CV is completely shot and I have a new drive shaft assembly to replace it but my problem is when I was releasing the old one from the hub I could see it separating from the final drive without me undoing the six square drive bolts. Looking at a diagram I'm guessing the shaft its attached to (17) has disengaged and I'm assuming that should be held in by a circlip (16) but I'm not confident enough to just pull out and see what's going on without getting some advice first.


So really my question is do I have a circlip rattling around in the final drive or am I wrong about the set up and worrying about nothing?


Worst case scenario, how much disassembly is needed to fish the old clip out out and reattach the shaft?
