Replacing Inner CV Drive Boot
« on: February 08, 2020, 09:23:27 AM »
Nearly finished my disc brake conversion only to find after assembled. The inner drive shaft boot has a tear.

So I fear I will need to pull out the ball joints and etc to get the new inner boot on ?

Hi,

yes you will.

Bugger !!!! thx terry at least the ball joints are freed up. But I won't need to rubber the outer cv boot or should I leave the driveshaft in there. Remove the outer boots slide the new boot up the shaft. Only thing Ill has to buy some more CV bands.

Which are the boots to get?

Hi,

the inner CV boot fits onto the inner part of the CV boot, not the drive shaft, so if you can remove the driveshaft from the CV inner following this technique in the car, https://www.moke.com.au/in-the-garage/drivetrain/94-removing-driveshafts-from-inboard-cvs, then you can remove the CV inner replace the boot and then put things back together.

You can dislodge the driveshaft from the Outer CV using this technique so if you can get a third hand to pull the driveshaft back towards the Outer CV while you strike the inner edge then it can save you a lot of time later on. I had to do one today where the outer had also popped out and it can be done in the car but it can get ugly and painful.

When you put it back together you need to make sure the driveshaft is fully home before you put the hub back into arms. Disconnect the steering tie rod end as well and you should be able to rotate the hub assembly sideways to press it home and then pull it out a little to fit it where it should..

Any of the boots pictured for the inner should be fine, just remember the boot clip on the smaller radius is inside the boot.
