Jim...Remove the CV's...Put a plastic bag or latex glove over them to keep the grease out of your clothes. Remove the little cap inside the flange with an awl or sharp screwdriver into its edge and pry out. Tap teh new one in...simple as that...Re do the cv's if you feel the need to get really greasy...
