How do i replace outer cv boot on alfa 156


Remove tire, remove brake caliper, and hang on suspension with a tie, remove lower suspensin from lower A-Arm, then with a "Breaker Bar" or Impact Gun Remove the nut in the center of your rotor, and you should be able to remove the axle from the hub. The old CV boot you can just cut off, and after a good clean, reinstall the new boot (I recommend you add some CV Grease as long as it's exposed to lubricate the joint), then slide new boot on.

On a 2003 hummer h3, if the outer cv boot is damaged, do both inner and outer need to be replaced?


  • Boots only need replaced when they have been negated and are leaking grease. However, the time effort and money to replace just one boot when the other is right there might bite you if the other boot needs replaced in the near future. However, if upon inspection the boot is not torn, worn and the knuckle still performs well you do not need to replace that boot.

  • Hope this helps.

Streering boot replacement procedures for a subaru


To replace the outer boot, the inner joint and boot must be removed as the outer joint usually isn't easy to separate from the axle shaft. The outer shaft or joint may be damaged if disassemble is attempted. As noted above, if the inner left side boot is torn, it can be replaced while on the car, just by separating the knuckle at the ball joint as noted, then pulling the axle off of the trans-axle output splines.

The inner tripod joint can be removed by removing or pulling back the boot at the joint and then removing the inner circlip that acts as a stop to prevent the joint from separating. With the clip removed, the tripod trunnion and bearings (free rings) can be removed from the housing. Its best to keep the tripod bearings on their respective pins and the bearings in the same races in the housing, so marking everything as you disassemble is important for joint life after reassembly. With the bearing assembly out of the housing, remove the external circlip that holds the tripod axle in place on the splined shaft and slide the tripod off. Marking position is again important to prevent vibration problems.

Now the inner boot, then the outer boot can be removed and replaced. Be sure to look for dirt or water in the joints, and repack with enough CV grease to provide lubrication, but not so much that there isn't any expansion space inside the boot. This may cause excess grease to be pushed out or the boot to dislodge. Reinstall the boot retaining bands with a proper crimping tool. Work the joints in all directions before reinstalling the axle, just to make sure there is no hint of binding. The joints should feel tight, but with no hitches, which could cause noise or vibration.

How do I get the cv joint seperated from the shaft of the axel because i need to do that to place a new cv boot on?


To replace the outer boot on this shaft you have to first remove the inner joint from the shaft, then remove the outer joint boot from the shaft and joint by sliding it back down the shaft. Do not remove the outer CV joint from the shaft. I believe you have to replace the entire axle shaft if it is removed as it's not made to be removed and reinstalled. I would actually suggest replacement of the entire shaft instead of just the boot anyway unless you were lucky enough to catch a leaking boot as soon as the boot went bad as it takes such a very small amount of road grit to start the damage that will eventuall wear out the joint and then you have to take the axle out again. [just my opinion as over the years I've seen dozens of bad boots cause joints to fail a short time later] Hope this helps out a bit and good luck!
