I am trying remove the outer CV joint from my axle (1988 Accord). I've removed the axle from the car, removed the old CV boot and have positioned it in a vice. I've tried hammering and hammering the joint but it just won't budge.
There is no Circlip or C-clip visible from the outside I can remove.
I'm honestly worried I am going to break the CV joint at this point - I've hammered so hard there are little dents in my hammer.
Would anyone know how I could remove this? What other options are there?
