Take off the wheel. Take off the large hub nut. Unbolt either the upper or lower a-arm (which ever is easier) from the bearing hub. Now slide the outer axle end out of the bearing hub. The inner axle end should easily unplug from the gear case with gentle prying. To replace the outer boot you have to take off the inner boot first, remove the clip inside the cup , and slide the bearing out. Remove the external circlip that holds the bearing on and slide the bearing off. remove the old boots by sliding them off the axle. Reassemble in reverse order . You may need a special tool for installing the boot clamps.

My front axel is turning but the wheel is not tried replacing armature plate but made no difference what could be the problem

Have you checked the splines on the wheel hub end of the cv joint? They're splined - and when the splines wear down - the cv joint will turn - but you're tire won't. If you shoot me your make and model and I have the manual - I'll shoot you the minimal clearance on those spines. If it's not the splines (male) on the cv joint - it's probably the female splines of the hub

Cv axle interchange 2004 - 2005 polaris sporstman 400

The "upgrade" can be done but it ain't cheap! The outer hub has to be a 2005 for clearance of the CV joint and there are clearance problems around the front pumpkin. If you keep the angle to near stock, the knuckles are very reliable. Make them bend too far, with a lift kit and they will break.
