hi there i think i've put this post ages ago :huh: but i did'nt see and thread on the tech archive. but it's quiet straight forward the only bit which is tricky is to remove the old cv on the shaft i've secure the shaft in a soft grip and use a copper mallet to knock the cv off. don't forget to put a new circlip when putting the new cv. also i've cable tie the caliper first instead of rmoving the brake hose so avoiding the bleeding hassle. ask if you are stuck with something
