SVT Focus CV Half Shaft Passenger side questions *Torque Spec?*

Hi, me again, well, I got into my front end last Friday to change, what I thought was a bad wheel bearing, turns out the bearings were fine, my CV half shaft was bad though. Ordered a new one from rockauto, going to tackle this Friday. Just had a couple of questions about the procedure.

First, do you have to separate the knuckle from the ball joint to remove the axle? Or is there enough slack to push the axle out without removing it? Or what is the right way to go about this?

Then after pushing the axle out of the hub, there are two bolts holding up the axle, remove those and then you should be able to just pull/pry the axle out of the transmission right? And that's basically the procedure correct?

Thanks

Dan

Pulling the strut should give enough wiggle room without having to disturb the ball joints.

Once bearing bolts are off the axle pulls straight out, support axle while removing the last bolt & slide out rather than letting it dangle.
