 Since no retaining pin is included in sliding direction, the


Since no retaining pin is included in sliding direction, the boot may be damaged or dropped if the constant velocity joint is slid out 25 mm (0.98 in) or more from the original length. Therefore, handle constant velocity joint by sliding it inward.

8. Perform inspection after removal. Refer to DLN-123, "Inspection".
