Outer CV joint replacement - help needed
In the process of replacing inner and outer CV joints on drivers side of the TS. The outer CV joint from Buypartsby came with a new spring clip but there is no groove on the CV. It also looks to be too big (diameter) for the groove on the shaft and I doubt if I can get the CV over it.
I don't fancy leaving it off altogether but with nothing to locate to even if I do somehow manage to get the CV over the spring, I cant see what good it will do...
Any advice welcome. Unfortunately bpb are shut on Saturday otherwise I would give them a call.
