It is much cheaper to replace the CV shaft. Purchase a Haynes manual that is specific to your car.
the battery is in the boot on the right hand side. clever EH!!!!!
Yeah....I'm fairly sure 1994-1998 is the range....just bought one!
remove the console, you should see some screws on the bottom of the boot, remove, replace boot, replace console
Replace the whole axel and save yourself alot of heartache. You can get them relatively cheaply after market.
A CV boot is found on the axle of a vehicle. To replace the outer boot remove the axle bolt and pull the boot off. The inner boot requires removal of the whole axle.
The cast of The Boot - 1998 includes: Kim Thomson as Woman
you cannot just change the boot you will have to replace the whole axle
you go.... and replace it!
CV boot? Tierod boot? Ball joint boot? Driveshaft slip yoke boot? If its torn REPLACE it
the boot you can tell with a visual inspection. there should be no tears in the boot. the boot is there to keep grease in and debris out. if the boot is torn and most of the grease is gone you probably should replace the shaft. if you catch it soon enough though you can just replace the boot which is much cheaper.
It is cheaper to replace the CV shaft than it is to replace the boot. If the boot has been torn for any length of time it will have collected dirt and water. That in itself spells disaster.
Don't bother trying to replace a torn boot on a half shaft. It is quicker, easier and cheaper to replace the whole half shaft.
Take your boots to a ski/boot shop that sells the same brand. They can replace the heel piece, or at least order a replacement for you.
You must replace entire axle.
Don't bother, just replace the entire axle. Once the boot is damaged, the CV joint is contaminated and it will not last very long. It's just an exercise in futility to replace the boot, and the effort is almost as great as if you replaced the entire half-shaft axle.
The easiest way,without pulling the hub and drive axle,would be to buy a split boot which can be found in most auto parts stores.it comes in two halves which are clamped onto the axle.They work fine.
The left side of the boot
Buy a split boot from the parts store- that way you won't have to remove the shaft. As long as you have the half shaft out, why not replace it since there is probably some damage to it from having a damaged boot?
It would be in your best interest to replace the entire CV shaft. Replacing the boot is only a temporary fix, because the bearings inside the torn old boot have been exposed to the elements (dirt/water), and will destroy the bearings.
Disconnect the battery, remove the cables and boot covers, and remove the old spark plugs. Next, properly dispose of the spark plug, put in the new spark plug, attach the boot cover and wires, and connect the battery.
You Grab It By The Rear And Jiglle Your Finger Around A Little :D i hope i helped
i was wondering how to fix a Nissan sentra 1996 1.6 c.v boot just some instructions.
the outer CV joint is a non-serviceable and non-removable item on the escort and ZX2. If it is bad it will need replacement. to remove the boot and replace it there are two ways to do it. (1) cut the boot off and replace it with a speed boot (a boot split down the length which then gets glued together) (2) either cut the boot off or slide it off. This method will take more work than the speed boot. This will require removal of the complete half axle. You will first have to separate the inner joint and remove that boot as well. Once the joint is separated, the tripod bearing will have to be removed. Once all this is done the new boot for the outer CV joint can be installed. If you do this method, you should also install a new inner boot as well.
