CV Joint Removal Tool
Avoid stripping your bolt heads and spending wasted hours cutting and grinding them off by using this special tool to easily remove those pesky CV joint bolts. This tool is for use with 12-point star-shaped bolts only. Please make sure to check your bolts before ordering. It's common for previous owners to replace the 12-point star shaped bolts with more standard allen head bolts instead. Although the 12-point pattern allows you to get a better grip on the bolts (with the correct tool), and apply the high torque that the bolts require, previous owners may have stripped out these bolt heads by attempting to use a torx or hex driver instead of the proper tool. A word of caution here - these other tools MAY work, but if they strip the bolt head, then you are in for an entire afternoon of grinding it off the next time it's replaced.

TIP: Spray the bolts down with WD-40 or Liquid Wrench first to loosen the dirt and debris in the bolt head, then scrape out any dirt that may be left. With the socket on a 6" extension, slip the tool into the bolt head and give it a gentle rap on the end with a mallet to seat it firmly. Following this simple procedure will hopefully avoid you from stripping any CV bolts.
