Hi

This morning I noticed that the CV joint gaiter had split with grease pouring out everywhere. I'm at the stage of trying to get the driveshaft out of the CV but there is a circlip which needs to be expanded. Unfortunately, a small piece of the circlip broke meaning there is now only one lug making it impossible to expand the circlip. Does anybody have any ideas about what I should do next?

Thanks, Peter

Use circlip pliers and you should still be able to undo the clip with them.

If not 2x screwdrivers will do it but you will need another pair of hands to knock off the cv jopint.
