Hi,

I am a newbie here and to be honest don't know anything on Subaru's, as my main line is on another brand of vehicle!

I have lately got a Subaru E10 2WD van into the family, but unfortunately it failed it's yearly test as the rear CV joint bellows are ruptured!

I would like to have a go at them ASAP. I am a competant mechanic and engineer, but I like to ask questions before doing a job I never done before, so I am asking anyone here, what the proceedure for removing the drive shafts is!

Your urgent replies would be greatly appreciated.

Best regards from Malta,

Since nobody bothered to post a reply , I am hereby replying to myself and hope that this information will be helpful for someone else.

I have now successfully tackled the job of replacing the rear CV joint bellows on the above vehicle. The proceedure is a s follows:

1) After jacking up vehicle and putting on axle stands, remove the undertray.

2) Cut off the two old bellows and discard.

3) Drive out cotter pin ( item 11) that holds inner joing to gearbox splines using a pin punch. (refer to exploded diagram 220-2 found here or else try here www.subaruclub.cz/graphics/manuals/57/images.zip).

4) Remove large snap ring (like item 9) from the inside of outer CV joint.

5) Slide drive shaft off and out.

6) Working on bench, remove circlip (like item 5) from top of shaft that holds outer CV in place and remove CV. Take note of its location to re-fit as it was.

7) Fit new bellows onto shaft.

8) The inner CV bellow must be greased and fitted over CV now.

9) Refitting is the reversal of the above. DO NOT FORGET TO REFIT THE SNAP RING INTO OUTER CV, PACK GREASE INTO BELLOW AND FIT BELLOW OVER CV.

I do hope that someone esle will find these useful!
