Outer CV Boot

Recommended Posts

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.

    • Seeing the fish is probably my preference since I would probably release it anyway. The only unfortunate thing would be not having a photo of it. 
    • I stick pretty simple on full chickens.... A couple of pads of garlic butter under the skin and a little olive oil rub down on DRY skin (very important to have dry skin if you want it to be crispy when you are done). Seasoned the big one with Lawry's and the small one with Weber Kick'n Chicken. Heated the grill up to 375. Both birds were done in a little over an hr..... Pretty cheap and easy - and the wife is getting sick of pork so,,,,,,
    • Agreed... that is why I took the gamble on a brand that no one had heard of at the time... but the Big Horn grills are getting picked up by more and more vendors. Hopefully they don't figure out that they are giving away profit and decide to raise their prices! On the flip side, have you shopped for a gas grill these days? Holy smokes! The char-broil 3 burner basic that cost $129.99 3 years ago is now $209.99... what gives?  
    • I bought a motorcycle from a guy a few years back only to find out he never turned the title over in his name when he bought it. If I remember right I had to write to the DMV main office with a copy of the bill of sale before they would share the past owners of the bike. Then it took some detective work but I was able to track down the first owner and get them to write a new bill of sale.  Also had an old utility trailer I bought the same way, but for that I just re-registered it as a home made trailer.  At least there is Goggle now to look up some names if you can get them. Good Luck.  
    • dat looks darn good!!!!   what seasonings this time??  
    • My concern with the Statement of Facts sheet is it talked about watercrafts with titles.    I was a first time privet party boat buyer and saw a good deal. Got over eager and didn’t really know what to look for. The hull is a 97. I purchased it with only a bill of sale. When I brought the bill of sale into the DMV they said sorry can’t put this in your name or issue registration. The name on this bill of sale is not the actual owner.   Everything I’m reading about the application process requires actually knowing the owners actually name and information and requiring his signature. I have now idea who the real owner is and on top of that the seller is appearing to be mia...   Is there anything I can do or am I just SOL and learned my lesson the hard way?
