In Topic: Oil Leak Out Of Of Wishbone

yeah it should be fine. basically you have 3 pins sticking out from the end if the shaft. and 3 big wheels that sit on those pins. Those wheels rotate on roller bearings which are cylindrical. Basically clean it all up so its spot less.


Then fill a wheel with rollers and then shove some fresh grease in there and put it on the pin, do the same for the other two.

the fill the drive cup with the rest of the grease, and then sit cup on top of the rebuilt shaft assembly then using some cable ties fasten the boot back up and refit to the car.

Ive been out all day with my flap wheels and removed all the paint from the sides of the van and all the fillerdisillusionment.png 

I only rubbed down the roof because the paint job on there was actually really good. However I have subsequently primered the whole van now with 2k etch primer which will create a good base for the filler to adhere too later this week. Im gonna go n have a lie down in a darkened room in a sec cos im sweating like Jimmi Saville on Top of the Pops, and I need a beer or ten. Anyhoo heres the evidence

No the splines are different.


And TBH you may find that youve strained the inner joint too much and a roller bearing has fell out. Its easy enough to pull the boot back and rebuild the bearings. Youll find the errant bearing inside the boot when you slide it back. 


All youll need is some CV joint grease and a couple of cable ties to do the job, and a shed load of paper towel to clean the old grease out so you can see what yer doing. A lot cheaper than changing the shaft,

Me again!!

Right after my little rant about AA Autowindscreens, Ive taken the screen out completely and its behind my wardrobe where it cant get bust. Glad I did cos there was some nasties under the sealer. So will drown them in rust treatment in a sec. Ive also taken all the doors off and put them in the shed outta the way so I can get on with painting the shell. And finally ive fitted my rear caliper brackets. 

Like a mong again I ordered the wrong ones, but I made em have it. Granted its only got 3 bolts in BUT they are welded on on the other side so are going nowhere in a hurry. Just need my wheel bearings to arrive now and I can put the hubs back on and forget about them for a bit.

Heres the evidence so far
