That axle doesn't come apart in the center, (as per service bulletin) and the CV joint is sold with the axle shaft as an assembly.
Date: AUGUST, 2005
Model: 2006 SONATA
The 2006 Model Year Sonata contains a right hand drive shaft assembly that cannot be separated at the intermediate shaft and bearing support like previous models.
WARNING :Do not attempt to separate the intermediate shaft from the drive shaft. Attempting to do this could result in damage to the drive shaft assembly.
CAN I JUST CANGE THE OUTER AXLE END JUST THE PART WITH THE THREADS AND TONE RING ON IT? JUST REMOVE OUTER BOOT SEPERATE, THEN SWITCH BAD END W GOOD END?
