t31 Joint Sub-assembly


Hi all - quick question.

I couldnt find this anywhere on the board - but is there a way to actually pull out the Joint Sub-Assembly or do I have to pull out the entire drive shaft?

The outer CV boot is ripped - so while the rest is fine, trying to do it such that I dont have to take the entire left shaft out.

Thank you emoticon

Hi Matt,

You should just be able to pull the driveshaft out from the hub and replace the outer CV boot with the driveshaft still located into the transmission.
You'll need to disconnect the swaybar linkage, steering linkage, caliper and rotor though to get to the hub nut and release the hub from the end of the driveshaft.

Hey Thanks Kev - I thought I could. I have done all the relevant disconnections, however, the assembly is not coming off. Is there a special tool or way to remove it?

Trying to attach a pic to this reply, but have no idea lol

Re: t31 Joint Sub-assembly


It's been a while since I replaced one, but there should be a large inner circlip that you take out of the hub end that allows the hub to slide off the ball carrier/assembly. Then there's another circlip on the end of the driveshaft to remove the ball assembly from the shaft. If possible, mark the position of the ball carrier/assembly to the shaft so that it goes on the exact same spline it comes off. Check your inner cv rubber boot as well as it may be close to cracking. If that's the case, check the topic "T31 CV joint Boots" in the "4wd System and Transmission" thread and see how that one is changed. Then you can slide the outer boot on whilst replacing the inner as well.

Hey Thanks Eric. I will check into that. You wouldnt by any chance have any images relating to the circlip on the hub end right?

The drive shaft itself is a reconditioned one that we had changed a couple of years ago, so will check into the inner boot too.

Thanks heaps emoticon

Re: t31 Joint Sub-assembly


No I don't Matt, sorry. Try and clean all the grease around the inner edge of the hub assembly. If a large inner circlip is not visible, maybe they have gone to a press fit for the ball carrier. The shaft will have an outer circlip at the end of it. If the shaft doesn't have a vibration damper on it, take the boot off the other (inner) end and remove the large circlip that is clearly visible. The shaft will slide out of the housing easily, and change them both from that end. The whole shaft doesn't have to come out of the gearbox, just the inner cv joint comes apart. Refer back to the cv joint post I mentioned earlier and you'll see how it comes apart. Hope this helps.

Hey cheers for that Eric. Come to think of it, if they put a reconditioned shaft in there, it could be a press fit ball carrier like you said. This means, I may have to go through the inner boot.

Thanks heaps man - this is starting to make more sense now emoticon

Re: t31 Joint Sub-assembly


So I have ordered the sliding hammer and also the inner boot and oil seal as I dont know what is going to be the final outcome at this stage.

However, looking at the joint itself, I can see that this doesnt have the circlip on the outer part of the joint. Manual says to try sliding hammer so that is what I will do first.

If it still doesnt come out, then entire shaft is the way to go.

By the way, I was looking at the inner boot, and its got some minor stretching - so potentially 12 months left on it.
