  • This also prevents leaks.

- Tap on the front side of the stub shaft using a plastic mallet.

Continued for Both Sides

- Install the new circlip into the stub shaft groove on the transmission.

- Apply approximately 2 grams of grease all around the splines on the transmission. Refer to the Parts Catalog.

- Now push the ball joint with one jerk onto the transmission stub shaft.

- Slide the joint piece with the drive axle onto the transmission pins until the circlip engages.

  Note

Never use a hammer or mallet!

- Make sure the joint is seated correctly, to do this pull the joint against the resistance of the securing ring.

  Caution

When checking, only pull on the joint piece and not on the drive axle.

- Lightly coat the splines on the outer joint with assembly paste before installing the outer joint into the wheel hub. Refer to the Parts Catalog.

- Tighten the twelve-point bolt on the driveshaft. Refer to → Chapter "Drive Axle Threaded Connection, Loosening and Tightening".
