Outer CV Boot

5 posts in this topic

Is this hard to replace and I have noticed a new boot that doesn't require to take the axle shaft apart. Any thoughts.

It's for a 97 accord.

Give it a try! It will not last long, believe me, I have tried the glue together split boot before. It lasted a while if done correct.

In the end, with the price of reman C/V shafts now-a-days it is cheaper to just do it right. You will be doing many threw out a years time and after you add up the cost’s, in the long run it is cheaper to just break down and do the shaft. They are not that hard to do.

Ok, now I see I have an option of just changing the whole axle assembly for about 80$ each side. I change these all the time at work on our Utility Vehhicles and they basically "snap" into the transmission housing. I'm guessing this is the same application. So basically undo the hub/spline end and pull on axle and it should pop off?

Yep, remove the braking system, axle nut, drop the lower control arm, swing the strut to the side and remove the outer c/v joint. Yank on the shaft and it should come out.

Good luck!

You'll also have to remove the bolt that holds the strut stirrup to the lower control arm. The lower control arm will then drop down far enough to slip the shaft between the two. Make sure you have a drain bucket underneath the transmission. Its also extremely important to torque the axle nut to the correct spec. One last tip when you wack the knuckle to free the ball joint push up on the knuckle not down on the lower control arm. You'll see what I mean when it comes apart.

    • Dishwasher for me if I don't get to them right away like thirdeye.
    • I sprayed mine almost a month ago.  An ortho product that seamed to work.  All that's left is the dead grass it choked out.

    • We spent the past week in Door County Wisconsin on vacation with 4 other couples and our campers. I had it all lined up for 6 members of our group to go out on a chartered fishing trip in the early morning of Thursday. The charter called me at 8:00 Wed. evening to inform me that the boat had broken down and wouldn't be fixed until later that day and there were no available re-scheduling opportunities until Monday.    GGGRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!
    • Well looks like the draft came and went without much fireworks, sounds like Fletcher didn't like any of the offers so he is going to wait to make a move. Hard to see us fitting under the cap or filling out a full team without moving Scandella or Pommers so we will see what happens.

      Of course drafting from the 3rd round on doesn't lead to many super exciting players but it sound like we got a couple midgets with some skill and several projects. Our big off season move might have been keeping everyone through expansion. 
    • My only concern is the timing of all of this. We seem to be loading up for a run in the next year or two but the Warriors are still sitting there stacked beyond belief.  Can we add enough and develop our young guys enough to be a legit threat to the Warriors.  Lebron, Irving, and Love barely made the Warriors break a sweat in the finals.  I'd like to see them time their final acquisitions to correspond with the end of the Warriors run. 
    • Maybe line up all the non-compliant VW's and gas 'em all out with diesel fumes. 
    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
