i know your situation may be, and sounds, rough.
but your best bet is to choose some weather you can stand, or just do it. i mean, you loosen the outer, the inner takes some time, but with the right tools, oh yea and a helper, it doesnt take long, if you know the routine.
you need a garage to disassemble the joint, clean it, put it back together and pack it.
or a new whole axle to swap in.
if you have help, jack up car,put on stand or stands, in driveway, get warm, have bundle on, wear work coat, use work gloves, and if you can have air service to use, if you can. one thing, before jacking up, loosen axle nut! gl
Just a question to understand how the inner is built. Is it the axle spline that goes into the inner cv joint "hub" and that hub is a solid at the end. That "hub" bolts upto the transmission with the triple square screws? or does the axle spline go directly through the inner cv joint into the transmission?
