Removing and installing drive shaft, left drive shaft, constant velocity joints VL100 and VL107, e-Golf

Press tool -T10520-
  Caution
When removing and installing drive shafts, do not allow them to hang free and stop against joints due to excessive bending.
Removing
–  Remove bolt for drive shaft → Chapter.
  Caution
Wheel bearings must not be subjected to load after bolt securing drive shaft to wheel hub has been loosened.
If wheel bearings are loaded with weight of vehicle, bearing will be damaged. This reduces the service life of the wheel bearing.
It is not permissible to loosen drive shaft bolt more than 90° if vehicle is standing on its wheels.
Do not attempt to move the vehicle without the drive shafts fitted as this would damage the wheel bearing. If a vehicle nevertheless has to be moved, comply with the following:
Install an outer joint instead of the drive shaft.
Tighten outer joint to 120 Nm.
–  Loosen wheel bolts.
–  Raise vehicle.
–  Remove wheel.
–  If fitted, remove noise insulation → General body repairs, exterior; Rep. gr.66.
