CV trouble

Recommended Posts


I recently stumbled upon a spare front axle, its a 1996 300tdi defender front axle with vented discs but i have a problem with one of the output shafts. I thought it may have been the drive flange having its thread stripped but it turns out it is the CV shaft thats got ruined splines.

Now i am planning on fixing it but i am unsure how and which part i need to buy, can anyone help?

Also is it worth buying the cheaper pattern parts or is my money better going on a Hardy spicer or similar, which are double the cheaper ones.

Any info and help.....please.

just replacement CVs and hub drive member gasket, plus the lock tab washer for when redo the bearings. if bearing are suspect i would change them and the rear disk oil seal at the same time.

Any chance of a quick qalk through of changing a CV??

Just which bits i need to remove, i am sure i could work it out but just havent got time to look at it at the mo, also unsure which CV i need.

Thanks again
