FrenchMike, it was exactly the case that you stated Turns out the driveshaft was not fully pushed home and shortly after 1 week of driving the car and replacing the slave, it came out of place again, now they fixed it back in place accordingly and it's all good. Thank you!

I am just starting the clutch change job on my car - is there a foolproof way to check the driveshafts are fully pushed back in ? On other cars I have worked on, you can usually hear a click as the circlip on the inner end of the driveshaft clicks into place.

I will start a thread on my clutch change saga over the coming days to keep you updated and perhaps ask for advice along the way. I am taking my time and doing it very slowly/thoroughly - I only want to do the job once !

Cheers
Pete

As I suggested in post #8 then

Very pleased to hear you got it sorted.

Thanks Mike - I agree warmer weather would be nice, but I am quite hardy (I was up on the Welsh Hills in the snow last week), and wrapped up warm out in the garage is not too bad a place to be. I 'll start a thread so folks can see my progress, and comment or hurl abuse, as appropriate !

Cheers

If the driveshaft circlip is not doing its job on assembly then the shaft can easily be pulled out again. ( fallen off.- )

Takes a bit of a tug if the circlip is OK.

I pack the circlip groove with grease to allow the circlip to be perfectly centralised Pete, the shaft is then entered into the gearbox carefully to prevent damage to the oil seal lip (which I usually smear a little red rubber grease on) then once resistance is felt when the shaft is almost home, I give the inner CV joint a sharp tap with a soft faced mallet and it will slide into place.

It will not be possible to slide the inner CV joint out once the circlip is engaged

Thanks Brian

Is it best to fit new circlips ? (I don't think the wad bothered with such finer details)
