147 twin spark

Iner cv joints


I could do with some info on the iner cv joints on my 147.
How difficult is it to replace both sides. Are both joints the same part. Just seen some on eBay and they say it's the same part for both sides.

Any info greatly received .

Inner bolts aren't hard but fiddly as they are partially covered by subframe so it's one at a time and a bit of a time with a hex socket on the bolt and open ended spanner on nut ... 6 of the blighters.

Under the end cap and the moly grease is a large circlip .. then the joint is on splines.

First one I did was easy to fit .. second not so and tight on the splines ... so possible manufacturing fault.

I did mine when I had to do the lower arms so took the hub assembly and driveshaft off as one piece saving me the pain of that large hut nut!

cheers, Gary
