    Hi all.

    I would like some tips of how to remove the drive shaft from my car. at first i thought about taking it off at the inner CV by undoing bolts, but got to a stage where it was hard to fit a spanner, and gave up, as i needed some hand cleaner ASAP.

    When i went to my work place Halfords, a friend of mine said that i can do it that way, but the better way is to remove the wish bone, and then pull, and it should pop out, nice and easy and no real mess. I have undone the ball joint the thing that connect to the disc brake and what have you. I then undid the rear bolt on the wish bone. I have taken off all the other bolts, like the anti roll bars, and the steering bar. I got round to undoing the other bolt on the wish bone where its in a little capsule but this bolt will not come undone, and is now hindering my progress.

    As i need to put a new engine in as the other has broken, and this it the only way I can get it out, by using a engine lift, so the it will have to be broken at the gear box...

    I hope that makes sense.. just leave any tips you have.

    yes your friend is right they should just pop out of the gearbox but sometimes they need a bit of a lever - try a big pry bar not slow push but sharp this should release the clip and allow it to come out along with the oil

    Agreed, just tug it firmly and it will pop out. Make sure it is as straight as possible when you pull it.
