Hi,
Anyone know which ball joint splitter fits the ball joint on the control arm.

I am wanting to replace a broken spring on my 997 4s. And need to remove the ball joint from the shock.

In the Porsche workshop manual it says use the special press-out tool 9560 but i can't find any information on it.

I was thinking of getting a Franklin TA330

Any advice would be appreciated

Tom

You should be able to get one from Halfords, most are fairly universal!

Use the piano fork type with hammer; the universal threaded ones I have bought (3 of) wont fit. Obviously this method can cause damage to the rubber so only go this way if you are replacing rather than inspecting.
OEM Porsche is a good call but can only imagine the prices

Thanks for your help.

The oem one was $240 so I've ordered a universal one, like this:

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Ball-Joint-Separator-Splitter-20-50mm-Tie-Rod-End-Lifter-Scissor-New-Garage-1556-/131972380765?hash=item1eba2ab85d:g:FpcAAOSwPCVYA6PA


I will see if it fits. If i cant get it off i will order a new ball joint at force it off with the fork style

Has anyone taken off a PASM shock front shock?

Tom

The one you have ordered will work just fine .. its similar to the snap on one i have .. when useing spray the rubber boot with wd40 or similar then its kinda normal to use a hammer to get the tool far enough in .

Yep ive removed pasm shocks , is there a particular question ?

You will need either a 21 or 22mm socket with a slot in it for the wire to undo the top nut and youll need to hold the top washer to make sure the shaft doesnt turn .. water pump pliers will do although there is a special tool for it .. a VW tool lol .

Thanks, the jaws on the one I have weren't quite wide enough, I've ground a bit out but they're still not quite right.

A spot of googling suggests the OEM tool is made by Nexus, part number 169-1p. Jaw width of 24mm



Edit: that info was from an old forum post, might need to drop the P from the part number now:

Yep, the one on the right looks too big with the added spacer section. I think the key dimension is the 24mm jaw width. Can you measure your snap on one?

Hi Demort,
Have you ever changed a front strut on a C4S. Just started taking it off. Everything is really tight.

It looks like you need to remove the driveshaft hub nut, do you need to remove the whole hub??

Thanks

If changeing the shock then you would undo the hub nut , remove all fixings other than the top stut then pull out the hub so its off the driveshaft then slide it down and off of the shock .. or just remove the whole lot in one go .. guide here for a non C4 ..

Guide does show another method although thats not the way i would do it .. far too close to the wing that way and a pain to get the suspension low enough .
