re: CV Joint Replacement
>Is the 12 point tool required to remove the bolts from the inner CV flange
called a "triple square"?
Yes...and the size depends on which car.
5K takes a 10mm
4k takes an 8 mm
>Are there any good Internet sources for this tool?
Look for brand name Lisle in many discount type car parts stores.
They sell these packed three sizes to a card for about $10.
I think it has 6, 8, and 10 mm on it.
After trying to corner a Snap-On dealer for a long time I finally found
these at CarQuest.
They appear to be good quality. I've done several axle shaft R&R's with
them and they still look pretty good.
The counter guy said he never heard of triple square. When I described
what I was looking for in more detail he said something like..."all we have
is these here pointy things for VW's"...and pointed to the card which was
labelled "Triple Square"!
