How do you replace the C-V shaft in a 1997 Ford Escort?
I too am replacing the cv shafts in a 97 ford escort... the right side came out easily with a pry bar and hammer but for the life of me I cant get the left side out... I have used wedges and pry bars and even my slide hammer... is it possible that you are having trouble with the same side
I would go to your public library and get a copy of the Ford factory workshop manual for '97 Escort. They will give detailed instructions with diagrams how to do this. I have a '95 Escort and my factory manual shows how to disassemble the console and remove the section where the cig. lighter is mounted and how to remove it. Be patient, don't do this job when you are tired or cranky ;-)
