Inner c/v joint

DISASSEMBLY

(1) Remove the axle driveshaft.

(2) Place the inner C/V joint housing in a vise.

(3) Remove the inner boot retaining clamps. Pull the inner boot back onto the interconnecting shaft.

Discard the retaining clamps.

(4) Pull the tripod and shaft straight out from the inner C/V joint housing.

(5) Remove the snap retaining ring from the groove behind the tripod (Fig. 9). Slide the tripod toward the center of the shaft. Remove the C-clip on the outer end of the shaft (Fig. 10).

(6) Remove the tripod from the shaft. Replace the boot, if necessary.

(7) Remove the lubricant from the interior of the housing and from the tripod.

(8) Inspect the needle bearing raceways in the housing and tripod components for excessive wear and damage. Replace the tripod as a unit only if necessary.

ASSEMBLY

(1) Slide the boot down enough for work access.

(2) Install the snap ring past the ring groove (toward the center of the shaft). Slide the tripod onto the end of the interconnecting shaft. Be sure the chamfered end of the tripod is adjacent to the C-clip retaining ring groove (Fig. 10).

(3) Install the C-clip in the groove. Slide the tripod out against the clip. Install the snap ring in the inner groove. Be sure the snap ring and C-clip are seated.

(4) Apply the required quantity of lubricant to the housing and boot. Coat the interior of the joint housing and the tripod.

(5) Insert and seat the tripod and shaft in the housing.

(6) Position the large-diameter end of the inner C/V joint boot over the edge of the housing. Insert the lip of the boot into the locating groove at the edge of the housing (Fig. 11).

(7) Insert the small lip into the locating groove in the interconnecting shaft.

(8) Retain the small-diameter of the boot on the shaft with a ladder-type clamp in the boot groove.

Verify that the boot and lip are properly positioned on the intermediate shaft. Position the clamp locating tabs in the slots and tighten the clamp.

(9) Compress the clamp bridge with Remover/Installer C-4124. Squeeze the tool handles to complete the tightening of the clamp (Fig. 12). Care must be exercised when using the tool to avoid cutting through the clamp bridge or damaging the boot.

(10) Position the large-diameter end of the boot on the C/V joint housing.

(11) After the inner joint boot small clamp is installed, the inboard hub must be set to a service build length.

(a) Compress the inner hub down the connector shaft.

(b) Use a small blunt drift between the large end and the boot seal to relieve the pressure.

(c) The distance edge of the lip to the edge of the flange should be 181.00 mm (7.13 in.). This will eliminate excess air that can cause a ballooning affect and possibly cause damage to the boot.

(12) Verify that the boot is not twisted and that it is correctly positioned on the housing.

(13) Install the large ladder clamp on the boot and secure as done with the small ladder clamp (Fig. 12).
