Could someone please tell me why my driveshaft wont go into the gearbox, I'm doing a box swap and all has gone well so far, except this driveshaft just wont go in the last 10mm or so. I tried using the block of wood and hammer like my manual tells me but I just put a small hole in the cv boot, its not to bad, I'll just melt it back together or something.
its a 88 TX5 2.2 Turbo manual.

Try taking that clip off the end. Smash it and clip it so its smaller to make it easier to get in.

Definately replace that boot, dont bother with melting it.

Have someone push the axle in while you hammer it with the wood and itll go in. Just remember, if that clip is that hard to get in, imagine trying to get it out. Fix that before its too late.
