16, Appendix E Grease
20, Appendix E Penetrating Oil
102603 Drive Shaft
Main Engine Shutdown (see para. 2-10)
APU Shutdown (see para. 2-12)
Batteries Disconnected (see para. 4-24)

Serious injury could occur if heavy equipment is moved/lifted without sufficient personnel to
do the job. Use proper physical lifting procedures or use a suitable lifting device or dolly.
Wear safety shoes, gloves and other suitable protective clothing.
Constant velocity joint damage could result if drive shaft is hung from one end. Always
support one end of the drive shaft using mechanics wire, until the other end is also removed.
If the drive shaft fasteners are excessively corroded, apply penetrating oil (item 20, Appendix
E) to ease disassembly.
(1) Remove the four capscrews (1) that retain
the constant velocity joint (2) to the
companion flange (3) of the reducer gear
(2) Using a hammer, lightly tap spacer plate (5)
until the constant velocity. Joint (2)
separates from the companion flange (3).
(3) Using mechanics wire, support the reducer
gear end of the drive shaft.
(4) Remove the four capscrews (6) that retain
the constant velocity joint (7) to the
companion flange (8) of the PTO (9).
