I was trying to take out the drive shaft today, but it will not move. Its on the right hand with the visco drive unit. I removed the 3 bolts at the bearing. I have used a hammer , but it will not move at all. Anyone had the same problem, and a solusion to the problem? I am afraid to destroy the drive shaft. I removed and changed the seal on the left side without problem.
With the 3x bolts removed from the half shaft bearing housing you can gently apply pressure using a pry bar behind the flange using the alloy casting as a lever point, sometimes they need a tap to get it started.
Thanks for answer. I did try that, but no movment. I can try again tomorow. But i belive the bearing may have rusted. I did try very hard, so i am afraid i can destroy the shaft or alloy casting. Have you experieced a shaft sitting so hard?
