Question about 1994 Land Rover Discovery
I need to change my front driver side c.v joint on my 91 discovery.
Remove wheel, brake caliper and disc, end cap and circlip (if fitted) 6 bolts that hold the hub drive, undo and remove the hub nut by knocking back the lock washer, remove the inner hub lock nut and remove the hub assembley. remove the 6 bolts that hold the hub shaft and remove that.There will be either oil or liquid grease in it, Now you will see the drive shaft and CV joint, just pull it out. Clean all the oil or grease.knock off the old CV joint and knock on a new one, they have securing clips inside but will knock off with a hammer.refit is reversal of removal. Use silicon sealant to seal the hub shaft when you put it back. You will need to fill the swivel assembley with liquid grease. you will see the filler plug on the swivel housing, put in about half a liter Its possible you may need to replace oil seals, check as you go along. to adjust the hub play, tighten the inner hub nut until it goes tight then back it off until the hub can move freely and effortlessly, then grab the hub and pull back and forth to see how much play is there, a little is permissable, so adjust to suit. Fit and lock the washer and tighten the outer locknut. Then as i said refit as you removed. These are safety related parts , so please make sure the items are tightly secured, aftreall you dont want the wheel to fall off.
hope this helps
