DIY: CV Joint Removal Tool Follow-Up

Post by cn90 » Sat Oct 26, 2019 2:36 pm

As a follow-up...

I finally bought this CV tool on ebay for < $20 ($17 or so).
This is the best investment ever.

Once the circlip is released, slowly crank the tool (I use a piece of old radiator hose as cushion),
and the CV joint comes off like butter.

In the past I had to use the vise and hammer/drift combo, which I hate.
This tool is a must, plus it is so cheap at $17.
