Once you pull off the cap, you will find (burried deep inside the grease) a C clip. Remove the c clip and apply force to the shaft. A press is easiest, but I have had success using a hammer and drift.
: Heya all, I'm putting in a LSD and was wondering about the halfshafts. I'm trying to avoid buying 4 shafts at the junk yard, and assembling them there. How do you get the cv joints off of the shafts?? I took the cap off but couldn't see any kind of retaining devices. PLEASE HELP, I only have 1 week left with access to a junkyard before I go back to Alaska....
