Universal Joint Removal

Does anyone know how to remove the universal joint that connects the outer shaft to the axle shaft? There is no "c" clip, there is a cover of some type....

Going to tackle this weekend. C-clips are on the inside of the yoke not the outside like the rest of the driveline. I'm using NAPA Performer U-Joints Part #374. Here are good instructionsBall Joint Replacement Write-Up For 2000 Ford F250 Superduty

I hate to say this, but I found "c" clips on the inside of the joint. I removed them and beat the crap out of them with the fractured piece of axle until I noticed them moving. Once, I was able to understand how to get them out, it was a matter of using "man-force" to replace them.

I just read the posting and I apoligize for how pitiful it sounds. I removed the clips with a screwdriver, then set the axle assembly in a vice. Using that broke peice of axle shaft as a driver, I pounded the U-joint cap straight down until I came free; then repeated it with the other three caps....installed in reverse order. I hope this sounds better, I'm sorry for that previous posting.

Glad you got them out. They are a pain to hammer out by hand.
