So my understanding is:
a) Panic, call Andries and say you forgot how to change the cv
1) Take wheel off
2) Remove cup and CV Nut "holder" and cotter pin (Save the cotter pin, you don't get another one with the new cv - or carry a spare = 2")
3) Remove CV nut with scredriver leverage between rotor and caliper, and big 35mm socket on long breaker bar. (Only when you put the nut back on)
4) Undo lower 2 bolts on spindle that hold it to lower balljoint.
5) Swing out spindle and pull outer CV assembly out
6) Pull inner CV (hammer and screwdirver/breaker bar, sliding hammer with "hook") There is a slot where you hit, alternate left and right to 'wiggle' it out
7) Push new CV in the diff carefully (not to mess up the seal), use hammer and screw driver as needed. Be gentle, it goes in very easily
8) Swign spindle out and push outer CV part through spindle
9) Use bottle jack to lift lower assemblyi n place, align with screwdriver and get bolts back in. TQ down. Put locktite on threads
10) TQ CV nut and secure with "holder" etc. Use screw driver on roter caliper to secure hub for TQ. When putting the cotter pin back in, you align it with the gold holder / thingy. Align with the short end of the cotter pin, the long end always goes in - may have to tighten the nut a little more. You'll see what I mean when you try to get the pin back in
11) put dust cap and wheel back.
12) Have a couple of beers


ANyway will keep it in mind if needed in the field.

5) Swing out spindle and pull outer CV assembly out Watch for the seal in the spindle as it very gentle and can be broken if you slide CV out off-center
8) Swign spindle out and push outer CV part through spindle Same seal- Watch!

Here's a pretty detailed write-up, with photos, on replacing the CV on a 3rd gen. Should be similar on a 4th gen, I'd think...
