cv boot broken
Posted 02 October 2004 - 11:43 AM
I just discovered a broken outer cv boot on the 98 Legacy. In the Haynes manual they say I have to unstake the axle nut. Not sure what exactly this means. There is a metal ring on top of that nut that at one point is pushed into a gap of an inner circle. Do I have to force that part of the metal ring out? Somebody in this group in a past post wrote: “ remove the crimp on the axle nut”. Does he mean the same thing as “unstake”? Also a question about the boot clamps installation. The Haynes mentions a special banding tool to do it. Do I need it? How else can a tighten the clamp?
Thanks a lot. Yves

Make sure you're following all precautions when working with this as it effects the bearings.
I never elected to re-boot an axle. You might check into the price of a re-manufactured half shaft. Easier and less messy to put in. Replace the outer
seal(s) if you go this route.
