Hi phoenix,

We don't have any information on the '97 Sonata. We DO have a manual on the '99-'08 Sonata, and the manufacturer states that the outer CV joint shouldn't be removed from the shaft. Before trying to disassemble the joint from the shaft, you should check on the availability of parts; you might have to by the outer joint and shaft as an assembly.
