Are split repair CV boots available for late models, '06 Outback PAX side boot is torn. Local Stealership wants over $300.00 to repair boot!I live in condo so can't get away with pulling a wheel to replace an OEM boot, but I CAN get away with cutting the old one off, and slipping on a split boot.


CV isn't making any noise, so should be able to get away with simple boot repair.

I would think the boot dimensions would be similar to older models. Perhaps a range of cross-referencing would yield the same part. I have no experience with ordering split boots.

Decades ago I tried one to repair an outer CVJ on a '78 Honda.


it didn't last 3 weeks.

EDIT - you already have a post for this, I think it's advised to stick to one post per question.

M'kay, grossgary, Only double posted in case a vendor had a product available, rather than hitting open market. Send me a message re; your repair offer ... we allus got room and we're directly on the ocean, including a good snorkel beach and surfing break ... we can do a deal?  Car isn't quite to 105,000 but close enough to go ahead and do T-belt, and maybe just boot/axle all at teh same time. I can probably find a carport to woek under, and got all the tools, except any specialty tools needed, and no timing light.
