01 sportsman front outer cv joint removal from axle
found this site and hope its going to be as informative as other I have found for sleds/boats etc... anyway,, here goes.
I have a 2001 sportsman 500 and need to replace the front/outer cv boot. I have pretty much everything done up to the point of getting the cv joint off the axle to get the new boot on. And here is my problem,[I] I can't find the SNAP RING to expand to get the joint to slide off the splines[/I]. I cleaned alot of the grease out and can't find a recessed spot in the cv joint that the snap ring would fit in? Do I need to remove any balls and ball holders/cage or whatever?? Do all polaris have snap rings, or do I tap it off the axle..
Thats it guys/gals save the day for me,,,
as I am running out of bud lights... lol.
