I need the proper tool for pulling cv shaft
Yes I know that i can pry around all day long trying to get the darn thing to pop out (i have for several weeks now)but i would like to find the correct tool to add to my collection.
I have several kia's, at the moment i am working on my 2004 Rio.the drivers side CV shaft got destroyed with what started out as a lug bolt replacement project.
now i have the outer section of the shaft sitting on the ground and the inner hub still connected to the transmission.
i have tried using an OEM brand adapter(OEM#27058) for my slide hammer,but it is to wide and to thick to fit between the trany and the hub.
And no! attaching a ratchet strap is out.
i know that the dealership's must have the correct tool but i can't get a straight answer out of them other than they can fit it in next week.
i have checked the snap-on and several other tool site's but don't really see anything that looks like it will work.also bought an adapter kit that allows me to use my channel locks to clamp on. didn't work either.
If you know of the proper tool please let me know,I am not going to make this any worse by prying on an aluminum transmission housing.
