Re: 2005 Volvo XC90 V8 propeller shaft removal

So, after much debate and careful surgical procession. An oxy-acetylene torch was used to cut and remove the CVj. I'll post pictures of the removed CVj. It was rusted in there bad.

Re: 2005 Volvo XC90 V8 propeller shaft removal

Thanks Jimmy. Unfortunately I’m well past the point of no return on this project to do that. The entire CV joint from the front separated from the entire prop. shaft, with what’s remaining in the angle gear. I’ll send some pictures out. Best guess is that it’s seized in with rust.

2005 Volvo XC90 V8 propeller shaft removal

I've been working on removal of the front propeller shaft CV Joint from car for a couple of days. Finally the entire shaft for the exception of the CV Joint stuck in the angle gear.
