I'm trying to get the outer cv joint off, but I'm tired of hitting than thing! It just won't come off. I've been looking for snaprings or anything similar, but can't find nothing. Am I missing something? This is not the first time I have this problem, but when I did the cv joints on my previous swift I just cut that thing with an acetylene torch :mrgreen:
I also can't get the drive-shaft off the center bearing. The manual says to hit it with a plastic hammer :huh: ?? I even tried with a regular hammer and it won't come off either.

Thanks in advance for any help you guys can provide.

thanks, I guess I need to hit it harder. What about getting the inner cv and drive shaft off the center bearing... any tips? I want to install the intermediate shaft without the drive-shaft.

dont mind my awesome MSpaint skills. im at work.

to remove the boot just cut/pry/whatever to get the clamps off then slide it out of the way.

1. outer cv. the part you hit. remove the cv, and you want to hit the INNER race with a brass drift and heavy hammer. dont be a bitch about it. its gonna take some force. personally i didnt use a drift but if you hit the cage you could crack it.

2. inner CV. remove the clamps and move the boot as seen in the photo for access. this ring (2) is in a groove (3 in the pic) in the outside housing of the joint assy. use a small pick to get under it and work it out. this will allow you to remove the outer part of the inner joint. this gives you access to part 4 seen in pic 2. the snap ring. remove the snap ring (location 5 in pic 1) and you can remove the inner race of the inner joint.

I already saw that post, that's what I was thinking him for. My question is about getting the inner joint out of the intermediate shaft... it's the passenger side I'm working on.

Its just a snap ring like the drivers axle in the trans. The last one I pulled off was pretty badly rusted. Took some good hits with a large hammer.

At the end I couldn't get it off. I hit that thing so hard the pieces of metal were flying all over the place! So one more time, I did what I should have done from the beginning... cut that thing open! :mrgreen:

I am from India. This is my first post. I have a Swift DDIs diesel with fiat 1.3 sde. I was recently trying to remove the outer cv joint from the shaft but could not with a reasonable amount of force since I didnt want to break it. I think its designed not to come out. Has anyone been able to get it out without damage. Thanks in advance

Sometimes there is just no way to get that outer joint to come off without breaking something, the snapping just lodges in and won't come free. If this is the case, and you are just replacing a boot, it's best to remove the inner joint and replace the outer boot this way. It's a pain to have to disassemble the inner but really your only option, and it's mostly just messy, not terribly hard.

The FSM says" Notice: Do not disassemble the wheel side joint (outer joint). If abnormality is found replace as an assembly."
