how to outer cv boot replacement?
Posted 11 September 2003 - 09:24 AM
Upon closer inspection I noticed a small 2 inch rip in the outer cv boot.
Since I know it is new I think I should just replace the boot and not the entire cv .
Is this possible without removing the entire Drive axle, and can you just buy a boot to replace the ripped one?

Oh, make sure you get the right size boot; there are many. Have him look up the right part number for your car. 4wd/turbo is a bigger boot than non-turbo, etc.

even the glue-ons lasted as long as regular boots

One other thing: The metal clamp rings for the boots are a little finicky. I found that using one fat zip tie is much easier, and you get a more snug closure of the boots. Dont use the skinny zip ties unless you double them up.
