Outer Constant Velocity Joint, Checking

It is necessary to disassemble the joint whenever replacing the grease or if the ball surfaces show wear or damage.

Removing

-

Mark position of ball hub to ball cage and to housing before disassembling, using electro-writer or grindstone.

-

Swing ball hub and ball cage.

-

Remove balls in sequence.

-

Turn cage, until two rectangular windows - arrow - contact joint body.

-

Lift out cage with hub.

-

Swing segment of hub into rectangular window of cage.

-

Fold hub out from cage.

6 balls for each joint belong to a tolerance group. Check stub axle, hub, cage and balls for small depressions (pitting build-up) and chafing. Excessive
circumferential backlash in joint makes itself noticed via tip-in shock, in such cases joint should be replaced. Flattening and running marks of balls are
no reason to replace joint.
