Where are all the cv posts was created by markmano
I must be going mad!
Popped the nearside cv and thought I'd order one easily but
1.Cv and shaft appear to be joined together by witchcraft, you can see they're seperate but you can't split em.
2.There's no spare CV joints on this site or not what I can find anyway.
3.There's no Haynes manual for a Jimny
4.There's no posts from anyone with similar problem.

54 plate auto. Cv is 8 ball bearing type passenger side with long shaft.

To remove the cv off the shaft....
i find putting the shaft end into a piece of metal pipe thats longer than the shaft then dropping it vertically so the end of the pipe hits the floor and "pushes up" and it will pop the CV off, just watch it doesn't fly off and hit you ;) or loose the small clip.
Haynes manual- can't help with I'm afraid
CV ebay has them or local motor factors, i would assume on a 54 plate you want the one with less splines..... i think from memory, but I'm sure someone will come along and correct me :)

How to change them is here in the Wiki - its always worth looking in the Wiki.

The Wiki has links to the CVs which are in the BigJimny Store (although just awaiting further stock)

The Type 1 is available overnight www.bigjimny.com/store/cv-joint-type-1.html
The Type 2 is due in again soon www.bigjimny.com/store/cv-joint-type-2.html

Ok great so I have to force shaft out of cv to break it off hidden circlip? That's gonna do the circling groove no good at all I might just cut the cv so I can find this clip. I'm considering getting replacement axle though as no oil came out when I stripped it meaning crown wheel and pinions will have suffered, hub bearing grease was very poor too and steering knuckle is pitted meaning it was probably left standing for a long time at some point. Overhauling each side is looking like £150 each now at this rate and that's if I'm lucky enough to find the super rare 8 ball cvs that are in mine. Bit gutted to be honest.

Yes. There's a circlip you have to break somehow.

I think you're the first one I've ever seen mentioning that it's easy to remove a shaft from a CV ;)

You do not need to break the circlip, the trick is to hold the joint very straight when driving it off.

But if they are pretty much joined together then what makes you think it is an issue because generally they explode into bits when they fail

And pitting of the ball is of no consequence, just rub it down with filler.

What exactly are the symptoms you are trying to cure?

A piece of tube to slide over the shaft and mate with the hub of the joint slide it in a downward direction until it hits the floor and you have it removed....brinell free.....strip clean reassemble.

I tried clamping shaft in vice about 4"down ie not on seal surface then put spacers upto bottom of cv so when I levered stub shaft it was pulling in an upwards motion. I'll try a bit harder next time now I know it's a snap ring. Cv not blown to pieces just one piece of cage broke but it's broke for sure. Can't I just put 6 ball cvs in and matching shafts if they're easier to find. Are these stronger than the 8 ball type?

Thanks for all the help I'm new to Jimnys but it looks like I'll be learning a lot!

Also I didn't mark up vacuum pipes but assume I can trace them to find correct one.

Might remove ABS ring too as it's daft I need to strip bearing to replace the 4 hub bolts. I'll be putting high tensile bolts back in there too those things were soft as muck!!

In The Olden Days I just used to hold the driveshaft upright in one hand, and whack the joint down with a mallet and they would fly off. (usually missing the carefully positioned cardboard box- good job I'm not a bomber pilot)

If it suddenly breaks, go back to the last thing that you did before it broke and start looking there :)
