Default Tripot cv removal

Gday all
I need to remove the tripot cv joint from the gearbox.
Does that just pry out of the gearbox/diff? The workshop manual i have shows a circlip on the inner end of the tripot.
Thanks
Greensuby

Depends on the axle model. SF and very early SG are female with a pin, later SG and onwards are male with a inner circlip (the one you probably have).

It should come out of the gearbox quite easily but if not, dont pull on the axle but use a crowbar.

So the circlip doesn't actually hold the joint into the gearbox/diff?

Yes, it does, but not rock solid.

I'm guessing you have an SG Forester? When you lever it out, use a prybar up against the bolt on the gearbox, not the gearbox casing as that can crack
