    yeah aslong as you are carefull.If its the drivers side then i think you may get a bit of gearbox oil leak out

    Just out of interest,how much are you paying for the cv joint? theres a website that alot of vec members go on and you can get a new driveshaft for £50

    Vehicle : Vauxhall Vectra Hatch

    Trim : SRI with added X-Pack

    Engine : 1.9 16v 150

    Year : 2006

    Mileage : Near 100K

    Default

    Punch or blunt chisel on the rear of the inner cv joint and a big hit with a hammer, there is also a rubber dust sheild inbetween the o/s driveshaft and 'center shaft'

    I did mine last year, fairly easy job to do, think it cost me £15 for the genuine kit through VX trade prices.
