    Intermediate Coupler.

    Hi all. Got i question to you guys that maybe has done this.
    Im about to rebuild the Intermedíate shaft. The first thing that manual want me to do, is remove the driven coupling.
    Tried it, and ofcourse, its sitting hard. Before i get it another go i was just woundering;
    Do i really need to remove it? If i read the rest om de steps, i dosent seem do anything if its still there?

    /Best regards Niklas

    I lifted the rear of the motor by removing the motor mount bolts...
    Easily removed repaired and reinstalled.

    This bearing housing fails due to poor engine alignment, lack of lubricant and of course water intrusion...

    It's not that bad of a repair.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks Dave. I allready have it out. Due to the motor is not in but did you need to remove the driven coupling (claw) to do the repair like the manual says?

    So its possible. As i said Before dont really the reason to remove the coupling at all.
    The shaft will be pressed out at the coupler side, and back in the same way (Like i try to draw on the pic)

    Yes, many others have reported being able to press the mid-shaft out & in with the coupler still attached.
    The shop manual goal is for total disassembly, and they caution that the coupler is soft, thus not to press on it directly. So if you just want to replace seals/bearings, you can leave the coupler attached, as long as you can still get the housing properly supported on the press table when pressing out, and when pressing in, careful not to press onto the coupler fingers, rather place a spacer/stand-off in the center (like a deep socket driver, same diameter as the shaft).

    I used a 1" PVC cap against the coupler. It doesn't take a whole lot of pressure to press it in but my press would not go in between the fingers. On the shaft side coming out I just used a scrap piece of steel flat bar to not press against the shaft directly.
