How To Replace CV Boots - EricTheCarGuy

This one is a request from more than one person so I'm happy to bring it to you. As I said in the video I personally don't see much point of replacing just the CV boots anymore as it just makes more sense to replace the axle, that's just how I feel however. If you do want to replace the boots I hope this video will help.

    BigniceJohn 3 года назад Thank you Eric. I have a LaForza and getting axles is near impossible. But, all I am dealing with is split boots. This will save me a lot of time. Cheers!
  • Laphroaig16
    Laphroaig16 3 года назад Hey Eric, your vids on CV joints have helped me immensely. VERY BIG THANK YOU. This was the first time I had attempted anything of this scale on a car (Mitsubishi Magna 1998 - Australian Sedan) and your vids made it look reasonably easy. It took about a day to get it both axles out, 4 evenings of cussing to replace both outer boots (What a messy job!) and then all of 2 hrs to get both axles installed. For good measure I got a mechanic mate to check over my work and he gave it the thumbs up. Now to do the timing belt and front suspension . Although I'll get the timing belt professional done by my mate. Just to add the car is driveable since doing the CV outer boots. Also having access to a compressor and rattle gun (impact wrench) makes life easier. I learnt a lot doing this work. Lastly, my skill level when it comes to cars is at a stretch that of a 'Weekend Warrior'. Stay Dirty :)
