This RTJ supersedes TNN 46-10 released 4-27-2007. The procedure for joint replacement is now in VIDA. Changes have also been made to this
document concerning the handling of the prop shaft. This info will be in VIDA 2009A. PLEASE UPDATE YOUR FILES.
When loosening the propeller shaft from the bevel gear, final drive or when replacing the propeller shaft, it is important that the following method steps
are taken to prevent damaging the rubber boot on the joint.
Note: When handling a propeller shaft out of the vehicle, it is important to support it so that the boot on the center joint is not damaged. Allowing the
shaft to 'fold' at the center joint may
cause the boot to be cut by the edge of the joint.
