Question about Ford Mondeo
Ford Mondeo 1.8 Driveshaft Fault. I have drive to the OSF wheel, but not to the NSF. The NSF drive shaft CV joints are ok, but the inner joint has slight grease leak at large end but has no splits. Could driveshaft have sheared in gearbox? How can you remove part left in differential gear? Have drive to OSF wheel but not to NSF wheel. Any other suggestions of a cause? Many thanks to anyone for any help you can give me.

SOURCE: How to disassemle CV joint
I have done CV joints here at my home garage for yrs, I recently did my 02 Esteem 1.8, I have a pic of the joint completely disassemble, and I mean as far as you can disassemble it. There are basically 3 types of joints, the rezeppa, which is the outer, the tripod and double offset joints are used on the inside.
The only tools needed are a large brass hammer, a vise, snap ring pliers, and CV boot clamp pliers.
You can remove both types of inners without special tools, the shaft has an external snap ring to hold on the race. The outer requires a vise and a large brass hammer, you hold the sahft in the vise, hold and pull on the joint and hit it close to the shaft, it has a circlip like the one used in the transmission, you have to "overcome" this clip. Then you simply turn the cage so to expose each ball out of the shell, and pluck it out, then rotate the inner race sideways and manauever it out, then the cage the same way.
The inner depends on what type, the tripod type come right out once the boot is removed, the double offset type is similar but it has a large circlip which can be plucked out with a small pick, it is a very weak clip. Then the cage and ball will litterally fall apart in you hands.
Clean and degrease all parts.
Assembly is a snap, the outer one goes on first, once the cage and balls are in the shell, and greased, put the shaft in and push down while working the clip smaller until is collapses enough to fit in the groove of the shaft, then tap it on down, the clip will emerge inside the joint and snap out to full size again. Again this exactly the same principle used on the stub that goes in the tranny.
The inners are just assemle in reverse order. Install the inner race, or tripod,depending on which one you have, then the balls and outer race, push it in the sheel (tulip), install the large circlip making sure the gap fall in between a ball race, then fasten the boot.

Hello,you need to remove driveshaft to be able to get to the nut.Remove the nut (MAY BE VERY TIGHT) and pull the yoke or flange as you called it out & you can pop old seal out & new seal in.You may want to smear a tiny bit of grease or vasoline on outside of seal for easier installation & also on the rubber part of seal so itwon't get damaged when you re-install the yoke.Hope this helps.
