Just unbolt the lower BJ mate, no need to split it. You will need 2x new hub bolts too as they are single use T:T: If you need ABS rings i have two brand new ones if interested. My driveshafts came with them standard so i removed them T:T:

Mine were just held onto the shaft with tension in the ring (hammer on, hammer off). As i understand it the driveshafts are the same across the board, the only exception is pre 96 vans which have a narrower track and shorter driveshafts.

Why did you remove them, didn't it fit with them on? My '01 Syncro came without ABS & the rings were on the drive shaft from new.
On my previous van the replacement I fitted came with the ring pressed on.
