    VR6 Ball joint replacement

    I'm planning on replacing the ball joints on my VR6, and I've noticed that the Bentley manual says you need to remove the drive shaft from the gearbox to do this.
    Has anyone managed to replace their ball joints without doing that? I'd prefer not take the hub off or remove the drive shaft.

    Is there enough clearance to remove and replace it?

    Yes, I've never removed the driveshaft. Enough movement to undo and move it out the way
