      Posting in General Chat thread.   11/11/2017

      it has been noted that too many Members are posting messages in the General Chat area instead of the correct Forums. Any messages posted in the General Chat area that are not General Chat will be deleted without warning and offenders may recieve warning points if repeated instances are seen from that Member. There are plenty of different Club areas that encompass 99% of Ford related posts, please select and use the correct one. If anyone is not sure of which area to post something then feel free to P/M myself or other Senior Staff for guidance. The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

  2. Ka Drivers Side Cv Joint - No Circlip

    To remove the drive shaft, complete with outer cv, from the hub do I just undo the hub nut? Will I need a new hub nut? Many thanks for your help - It seems like the Haynes manual was written for a different car sometimes!
  3. I've been trying to work on my daughters 2004 Ford KA and fix a host of MOT fail problems. In doing so Ive damaged the boot on the drivers side outer cv joint. Oh hum I thought better replace it so I removed the old one and cleaned up the joint only to discover that there is no circlip - as described in Haynes manual. Ive tried inserting some circlip pliers but the joint is too small; I tried a safety pin and it only just fits. Is there a varient where there is no circlip - I don't know what to do :-( and she's coming home from holiday tomorrow. I really don't want to give in and go to ford as I might as well have paid their extortionate prices in the first place and saved myself the pain of 2 weeks lying on the garage floor! Ive attached a picture of the joint in case anyone can help
