Rag Joint Replacement

Hi All,I have to replace my (Steering) Rag joint, and didn't do that before. Is it possible to replace it without open/disassemble the Steering column, or Steering gear Box? What is the best way to do that? I found some videos from other Cars, but that din't help me really. Must I destroy the old Rag joint, or is it possible to move it with opening the nuts and Bolts? Must I have something I mind for reassembling, like position before disassembling? Thanks a to for every hint!With kind regards…See More

Thanks
