Tightening Clamp On Outer Joint

  • Attach the Clamping Pliers -VAG1682- as illustrated. When doing this, make sure that edges of clamping pliers are seated in corners -arrows B- of clamp.
  • Tension clamp by turning spindle with a torque wrench (do not tilt clamp tool).

Note

  • The hard material of the CV boot (compared to rubber) makes it necessary to use a stainless steel hose clamp. It is only possible to tighten the hose clamp with Clamping Pliers -VAG1682A-.
  • Tightening specification: 25 Nm.
  • Use torque wrench -C- with adjustment range 5...50 Nm (for example Torque Wrench 1331 5-50Nm -VAG1331-).
  • Make sure the threads on the spindle -A- on the pliers move easily. Lubricate with MOS 2 grease, if necessary.
  • If it does not move freely, for example due to dirt in thread, the required clamp tension will not be achieved at the specified torque.

Outer CV Joint, Checking

It is necessary to disassemble the joint whenever replacing the grease or if the ball surfaces show wear or damage.

Removing

  • Mark position of ball hub to ball cage and to housing before disassembling, using an electric engraver or grindstone.
  • Swivel the ball hub and ball bearing cage.
  • Remove the balls one after the other.

  • Turn cage, until two rectangular windows -arrow- contact joint body.
  • Lift out cage with hub.

Volswagen Tiguan. V40-0016

  • Swing segment of hub into rectangular window of cage.
  • Fold hub out from cage.

6 balls for each joint belong to a tolerance group. Check stub axle, hub, cage and balls for small depressions (pitting build-up) and chafing. Excessive circumferential backlash in joint makes itself noticed via tip-in shock, in such cases joint should be replaced. Flattening and running marks of balls are no reason to replace joint.

Volswagen Tiguan. V40-0017

Installing

  • Press in half of the total grease amount (40 grams) into joint body.
  • Insert cage with hub into joint body.
  • Press in opposing balls in sequence, during this, previous position of ball hub to ball cage and to joint body must be established again.
  • Install new circlip into the hub.
  • Distribute remaining grease in cover.

Inner CV Joint, Checking
