How to Replace a CV Boot | AutoMD

Anyhow, I popped the small band clamp off the small end and found a hole in the rubber, coincidentally right where the clamp was. I did not want to replace the CV boots so I busted out my tube of shoo goop (for rubber!) and repaired the hole (yes, I am quite proud of that). However, that leaves me with two questions.

so you want to fix your cv boot your self. good choice! save your money for other add ons on the atv. you might evon beable to spend more time wheeling insted of waiting for it to get fixed. this maybe also a good time to replace both cv boots. i have in the past replaced one boot then a short time later fix the other one. first boot replacment might take up to and hr or 2. but the more you do it will take less time.

Replacing CV Joint Boots | eHow

Front Drive Axle Repair - Replace CV Joint Boot and Axle

A common MoT failure on both T4 and T5s is a split CV boot. For those who may not know, CV stands for constant velocity, and refers to the rotating joints found at either end of the axles. These are packed with grease, which is held in place (and dirt kept out) by a convoluted rubber boot. Once a boot splits, which they will all do at some point due to the rubber perishing, the all-important grease can escape from the joint and dirt and road debris can enter. This will cause rapid wear of the joint and, if this is allowed to continue, will soon damage the joint irreparably and you will have to replace the entire joint. However, if the damage is spotted soon enough, you can simply replace the rubber CV boot. Here’s how to replace a CV boot on a T4.
