MacGuyver TSB - CV R&R
Application: '87 5k fwd 135k
Project: Replace R outer CV joint boot, ripped, rebuild CV joint
ET: 2 hours drive to drive, no removal of driveshaft necessary
Problem: Retaining clip tabs on outer CV missing. All indications are that
without the tabs, no removal. Called 4 audi techs, and audi zone service.
New driveshaft only remedy. No, not considered rebuildable core. New
driveshaft? I don't think so Tim.
TSB: Remove driveshaft without downpipe or heat shield removal. 2 Paper
clips straightened and pushed under retaining clip from both sides gives just
enough room for the retaining clip to clear the spline ridge. R&R success.
Install new boot, rebuild CV, install driveshaft.
AT: 4.5 Hours
