(8) Clamp the outer C/V joint in a vertical position.

Place the stub shaft in a soft-jawed vise.

(9) Press down on one side of the bearing cage/hub to tilt the cage. This will provide access to a ball at the opposite side of the cage. If the C/V joint is tight, use a hammer and brass drift to loosen the bearing hub. Do not contact the bearing cage with the drift.

(10) Remove the ball from the bearing cage (Fig.

16). If necessary, a small pry bar can be used to pry the ball loose from the cage.

(2) Align the bearing hub, cage and housing (Fig.

15) according to the alignment reference marks.
