I need to replace CV booth on my 1981 300TD. To do that I must take
the drive axel off replace the inner boot and put it back on. I did
this once on a car that was front weel drive, but "things" look quite
different on a rear weel drive Mercedes. I know I need to remove the
drive axel nut and "something else" before attempting to pull drive
axel out, but I would like to know what is that "something else" and
it what order.
If anyone would be so kind to explain this procedure step by step or
if there a site with this information, please let me know where it is.
Thank you in advance,
You should really get a workshop manual before attempting this job.
Removing the bits is one thing, but replacing them is something else.
What torque should the nut be tightened to, 10 ft.lbs or 200 ft.lbs?
Should it be done up just finger tight or to 50 ft.lbs and then backed off ?
If you don't know, then you WILL be changing the rear wheel bearings in a
very short time.
Good luck, but if you're not sure, don't
