Icon5 CV rebuild info needed...

Hey all, I was planning on rebuilding my driveshaft and ordered the rebuild kit. Recently I was going to just buy the entire driveshaft from Honda but its over $100 and was going to take over a week to get here so I already have the rebuild kit and started to rebuild it.

My Helm shop manual talks about a stop-clip and a cir-clip...neither were in place when I removed the spider gear from the inboard shaft, I am only rebuilding the inboard side of the CV as that's the only boot I tore up, I got two C-clips in the rebuild kit, I assume one is the stop clip and the other is the cir-clip...I don't know which one is which...please help!!!


Addition: part # 44017-s30-000 and I put up a pics of the package. Included part: boot, straps, CV grease, bolt, and those C-clips in the red back...That's what I am trying to figure out what they are??? Cheers for all the help, Preludezone.com ROCKS!!!

Re: CV rebuild info needed...

I am thinking the round on goes on after the spider gear and the flat one is the "stopper" one. I need a cir-clip tool so I have to do this during the day tomorrow. Any input would be awesome, I will check back before I start again, Thanks all!

Re: CV rebuild info needed...

I can't say I've ever rebuilt an inboard cv, only outboard. It should be pretty simple though. For the outboard there were little square sliders that needed to be clipped in perfectly on the ends of the 3 prongs sticking off. I'm not sure if its totally the same.

But I wouldnt go to honda for parts, thats like asking to get raped on $$$. Go to privately owned mechanics shops, or pep boys, or anywhere but honda. Seriously. I purchased my cv for $70 from my mechanic.

Re: CV rebuild info needed...

I personally would return the rebuild kit and go to a local parts store, like Kragen's or Napa. You can get brand new axles for around $70 and no core charge. Only takes 2 hours at most to switch out both axles as long as you have the right tools and you also don't have to worry about rebuilding the cv joints.

Yeah, rebuilding CV axles has really fallen off. You can get reman axles with a lifetime warranty for $60 from anyone. Been running them for years now with no issues. But, if you insist

Ok thats what I was saying. But again, if you read in the little box that shows each step explained step #10 specifically says thats an outboard CV not inboard like he needs. I'm almost positive they aren't the same.

Re: CV rebuild info needed...

I am just doing it and if they click "C'est la vie".

I still am not sure which one of the two circle rings are the stopper and the Cir-clip? I will take a close pic of the two rings, maybe some will know which one is which. Also I was wondering, I do need a "boot band tool" as this article says? I have to take yet another trip to sears. They like me there.

P.S. I get my parts from a Honda dealership from far away because they have such awesome prices so I am not going to return anything I get from them.

Just for my own amusement, what did you pay for the CV rebuild kit?

Well more power to you then. What is the exact problem your having right now? The little circle clips go on right at the end. Make sure when you reconnect the axle to the trans/knuckle that the gap in the circle clip is facing down towards the ground, otherwise your going to have a hell of a time squeezing it in there.

Re: CV rebuild info needed...

Yea, not the axel going in to the tranny but the CV apart after taking off the spider gear, when I put the spider gear back on...the rebuild kit comes with two circle clips. I took some pics...one of these clips is supposed to be a "stopper" and the other is the cir-clip just like the ones that go in the tranny. I am thinking that the flat one is the "stopper" and the round one is the Cir-clip.

Re: CV rebuild info needed...

some pics of my spider gear and the lack of room for both the stopper ring and the cir-clip ring to fit around the spider gear itself.



above pic shows there is no access to the recess where the cir-clip would go

Re: CV rebuild info needed...

Ahhhh I see now.

Make sure that your using the right clips on the right sides. Also, make sure you push the actually CV down all the way to the stopper. Take it to honda worst case scenario and just biitch at them saying they sold you the wrong kit. They probably didn't, but it'll get them to put that biitch together for you. haha.

Can I get away with not using the outer cir-clip? Or will it explode when I put it back in like that???

Re: CV rebuild info needed...

The reason I thought it might be ok was that there were no clips when I took it apart...no stopper clip or cir-clip.
