sorry if this has been discussed before, i have searched the forum but need little more info
Basically my drivers side outer CV boot needs replacing as i noticed a small tear in it.
some people say remove the whole drive shaft by removing the 36mm hub nut. others say just remove upper wishbone joint etc...
i have seen that the knuckle joint (inner CV joint) has X6 bolts with spade type washers on every pair of bolts, am i right in saying the bolts are Ribe bits to undo the bolts?
i understand to use Loctite on these bolts and use correct Torque on workshop manual when tightening up.
to take the boot off:
am i right in thinking that the easiest way is from inner joint, ive seen in the W/S manual that there is a cap when you unbolt the 6 Ribe bolts, and underneath this is a Circlip holding the joint in?
Remove this Circlip and undo clips for boots and slide off both boots via inner joint.
(i want to replace both boots by the way)
is this straight forward as it seems or is there a few nightmares along the way.
Thanks in advance.
