The one behind the inner pot joint.
There is a detent spring under the plate but should it have a detent pin or ball on top ???

Cheers

Sh*&.

Never saw that coming ... but think I heard it going!

Is the ball at the bottom of the sleeve or at the top
Ie
Under the spring or on top of the spring ... can’t see any reason why it should be at the top under the plate?

The Ball is inside, not directly under the cover. You need to remove the spring first, then the ball is under that.

Maybe I’m ok then.
There was a noise of something hitting the bench just as I moved the plate to the side and the spring popped up.
Coincidence?
Spring didn’t come out of the hole / sleeve so ball must still be down there
Will check that tomorrow

Thanks both for your help

Must buy a workshop manual for a 96 car.
