Re: t31 Joint Sub-assembly


Definately no circlip there. The shaft may slide out as Kev said earlier, with a little effort on the slide hammer.

Re: t31 Joint Sub-assembly


Is there a specific reason such as wear or damage why you want to take the actual CV apart rather than just put a new boot over it and refill with grease ?

The service manual actually states that the joint sub assembly at the wheel end cannot be disassembled, only the joint at the transaxle end.

Re: t31 Joint Sub-assembly


hey Kev - the boots I have are not the split kind. So if the cv doesnt come off, then I will have to remove the shaft, remove inner, damper and get to the cv to replace it.

The manual I have says this:

13. Screw a drive shaft puller (A) into joint sub-assembly screw part
to a length of 30 mm (1.18 in) or more. Support drive shaft with
one hand and pull out joint sub-assembly with a sliding hammer
(B) from shaft.
CAUTION:
• Align a sliding hammer and drive shaft and remove them
by pulling firmly and uniformly.
• If joint sub-assembly cannot be pulled out, try after
removing drive shaft from vehicle.

So this is where (from my perspective) it gets a little complicated - do I try the cv? or go straight to removing the shaft?

Either way, I got the tools I need now, so just need to try it......

Re:


So just to update. Removed the left hand shaft now - its the only way to get to the boot. May as well replace both and the oil seal too.

Only question - what transaxle fluid should I use to replace the lost fluid? Seem to have lost a bit - maybe 0.5 to 1ltr?

Can I use another brand like Nulon Fully Synthetic or does it have to be Nissan NS2?

Nulon

And if I can use Nulon (or alike) does that mean I need to drain the current fluid?

*sorry for all the questions, this is all new - and have a pulsar that I bought to learn and work on, but sadly the x-trail is the one with the fixes now*

The service manual states
"Using transmission fluid other than Genuine NISSAN CVT fluid NS-2 will damage the CVT, which is not covered by the warranty."
There are no specs on oil grade so it is difficult to say if any other type of oil is adequate.

Re:


So its all in.

But found a crack in the new inner boot (on the edge). Plus didnt have the clamp tool, so have temp clamps on it for now. Will be getting the clamp tool and hopefully a replacement boot this week.....

But it was a pain in the arse to get the shaft back in.

There is also a slight scratching noise - I suspect this is the plate behind the disc.....
