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.

Best regards from Norway.

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?
