- Remove the inner CV-joint and housing from the halfshaft.
- Remove the inner boot from the halfshaft.
- Remove the outer boot clamp protectors and carefully remove the boot clamps.
- Remove the outer boot from the halfshaft and inspect the grease for contamination.
- If the grease is contaminated, clean and inspect the joint for wear. Replace the joint and shaft if worn or damaged.
- Place the new CV-joint boot on the shaft.
- Using 5.82 ounces (165 grams) of suitable CV-joint grease, pack the outer CV-joint with grease, then spread the remaining grease inside the boot.
- Clean the boot mounting surface and position the boot in the joint grooves.
- Place the clamps in position and use CV Boot Clamp Installer T95P-3514-A or equivalent, to install the boot clamps.
- Place the clamp protectors over the boot clamps.
- Install the inner boot on the halfshaft.
- Install the inner CV-joint and housing on the halfshaft.
- IF equipped, compress the Integrated Wheel End (IWE) disconnect on the bench to collapse the vacuum chamber.
While the IWE disconnect is collapsed, install a vacuum cap on the vacuum port.
Install the IWE disconnect on the outer CV joint housing.
WARNINGDo not install the integrated wheel end disconnect in the knuckle. It must be installed on the outer constant velocity joint housing.
- Install the halfshaft in the vehicle.
- Road test the vehicle and check for proper operation
Before continuing with this procedure, make sure to have available a new CV-joint boot kit, for each CV-joint being serviced. The outer CV-joint cannot be disassembled, only the boot can be replaced.
