    IMG_0395.jpg Hello. Any tips on removing the inner dust seal (back side of knuckle) if you’re just doing a cv axel and not a wheel bearing? So I don’t have access to it from the bearing side to use a drift to punch it out. Thanks for any help.

    A screwdriver between the seal and knuckle. Tap the screwdriver in with a hammer and pry it out. If the seal starts to bend, or cave in, no big deal. :thumbsup:

    I did the chisel and screw driver guess I need to not use my purse to hit them
    I have part #90304-A0001 and it honestly doesn’t look like an exact match so I was a little worried about smashing it up too much. Thanks for the replies

    Screwdriver method worked for me last week. Try not to mangle it too much. When you put the new seal in, use the old one behind it to tap it into place that way you don’t deform the new one.

    Is that just one seal?
    Hammer and/or pry
    Won’t matter if you damage it. Being replaced. Long as you don’t smack the knuckle.
    Unless you plan to use it as an install tool which may or may not work.

    new seal you can probably clean area, lube, gently tap in all the way around.
    Or block of wood. Or circular driver tool big enough if you have any.

    only other circular strong jury rig tool I can think of that might work is jack extension or jockey puck. A cup would break.
