Question about 1997 Toyota Celica
Cant get cv joint off axle to slide boot on please help!
Have you undone the main hub bolt, if yes, there could be two different items holding the cv joint on, one is a small circlip in the joint end, or the other is just like an expanding metal ring again only small. what i had to do to change my one was take the driveshaft out (easier to see whats there) then gently (rubber hammer) hit the CV joint it should then fall off to allow you to change the CV joint. I spent over an hour trying to get the metal ring off, then after taking driveshaft off it was changed and back on in ten mins. Or you can go to a motor factors or similar and get a boot puller, my opinion hammer works better lol

The answer to my problem (How to remove axle from cv joint in order to replace cv boot on my 4WD triton) was so simple its a pity that others have not suggested it.
The answer is purchase a stretchy relacement boot. Although the axle is only 25mm diameter or so you have to get it over approx 75mm diameter of the cv joint its self.
My friendly 4WD speciallist has a stretching tool similar to what farmers use to fit castrating rings to stock (only bigger), fitted the boot in a jiffy.
One more thing, dont worry about not having the right tool to twitch up the clamping bands, cable ties are a hell off a lot simpler. And yeah got my roadworthy OK
