i took mine all apart to check the grooves and steel balls. there is a 50 50 chance that you will assemble the joint so that it doesn't rotate on all three axises. so i would suggest to mark the relationship of the inner assembly with the outter assembly with a line drawn right across them with white out.

You can easily do it yourself provided you have the correct tool to remove the CV bolts.

I highly recommend the Snap-On tool to remove the bolts - Snap-on part number FTSM8E Do not use a allen wrench\allen head socket to remove the bolts!!

Do clean the bolts completely before trying to remove them. You do not want to strip out a bolt.

If you are doing it yourself, it is cheaper to replace the indivivual joints and boots - but it is more time consuming (and messy). You can replace both axles in about 1 hour.

If you take your old joints apart - remember the large flange on the outer race matches up witht he small flange on the innter race.

Hehe, I remember dis-assembling my CV joints. Yes, you have to be careful with how you re-assemble it, or it will not function correctly, especially if you forget how it goes together! Lost about 30 minutes figuiring it out again, makes me wonder what the inventor of the CV joint was thinking....

I have never had any luck pulling the CV's of the shaft.....

FOr the extra bucks the complete axle is worth the time (headaches) saved.

Removing the joints from the shaft is a bit of a PITA, but if you have a jaw type puller, you should be able to remove the inner race (or carrier?...) from the shaft once you remove the clip holding it in place. Mine was stuck on there pretty good, but with a puller, it did come off.

When I took my CV joint apart to repack, this is what I found:

I replaced the whole axle (previous post)

I win =)
My groove is about twice that deep.
It just howls on the high-way, and clicks around town. I'm hitting the local NAPA today to try to find a cheap replacement. I have a HUGE discount there (pretty much all parts at cost), so I'll see what I can do =)

Hmm, went to NAPA, $125/axle, and apparently there are only 6 left in Canada?.. Sounds like a load of s*** to me, but if it's true, there are now only 4 left. I get to pick my axles up on tuesday.

I tried almost every VW cv joint/shaft I could think of, with no luck.

Most of them were more expensive than the porsche one.

That is $125/axle, including both joints and boots =)
I didn't think I did too badly.

The normal price is $167 or something per axle, but for some reason my discount was not as big as it should have been, perhaps they are already discounted? I usually get 50-80% off.

I'm thinking about replacing my half shafts (axles and CV joints). Should I spring for new assemblies or are rebuilt adequate? Is there anything (other than being assembled incorrectly as mentioned above) that I should look out for?

If you buy rebuilt, do NOT buy ARI rebuilt shafts. I had never heard of the company before, but I picked up a set rather cheap. The axles were the wrong length, so I dug in and pulled the joints off, and installed them on my axles. Once I got them apart, I found that ALL of the races were already scored, and some of them were pitted BADLY. Next, I couldn't get the joints apart. The ball bearings that were installed were too large, and the inner/outer races were not matched sets, the angles on the grooves were different. Took me the better part of a day to re-match some new ball bearings, and match up some of my old races with some of the new ones.
I'm going to give the shop royal s*** when I return half of their new axles as cores.
