  1. Happy Birthday georgewhite!

  2. 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
