Quick Boot - CV

Inspect/Replace

CV quick boots are split boots that can be replaced without removing the driveaxle.

To replace the boots:

  • Begin boot removal by cutting and discarding the boot clamps.
  • Scribe a mark around the axle to indicate the boot's position on the shaft. Then, remove the boot off the joint.
  • Remove the circlip and separate the joint from the shaft.
  • Slide the old boot off the shaft.
  • Wipe the axle shaft clean and install the new boot onto the shaft.
  • Place the boot into its proper location on the shaft and install a new clamp.
  • Using a new circlip, reinstall the joint on the shaft. Pack joint grease into the joint and boot. The entire pack of grease that comes with a new boot needs to be forced into the boot and joint.
  • Pull the boot over the joint and into its proper position. Use a dull screwdriver to lift an edge of the boot up. This will equalize the pressure inside the boot with the outside air.
  • Install the new large boot clamp.
