CV-Joints Overhaul These vehicles use several different types of joints. Engine size, transaxle type, whether the joint is an inboard or outboard joint, even which side of the vehicle is being serviced could make a difference in joint type. Be sure to properly identify the joint before attempting joint or boot replacement. Look for identification numbers at the large end of the boots and/or on the end of the metal retainer bands.
The 3 types of joints used are the Birfield Joint, (B.J.), the Tripod Joint (T.J.) and the Double Offset Joint (D.O.J.).
NOTE: Do not disassemble a Birfield joint. Service with a new joint or clean and repack using a new boot kit.
The distance between the large and small boot bands is important and should be checked prior to and after boot service. This is so the boot will not be installed either too loose or too tight, which could cause early wear and cracking, allowing the grease to get out and water and dirt in, leading to early joint failure.
NOTE: The driveshaft joints use special grease; do not add any grease other than that supplied with the kit.
Double Offset Joint To Remove:
NOTE: The Double Offset Joint (D.O.J.) is bigger than other joints and, in these applications, is normally used as an inboard joint.

  1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the precautions at the beginning of this section.
  2. Remove the halfshaft from the vehicle.
  3. Side cutter pliers can be used to cut the metal retaining bands. Remove the boot from the joint outer race.
  4. Locate and remove the large circlip at the base of the joint. Remove the outer race (the body of the joint).
  5. Remove the small snap ring and take off the inner race, cage and balls as an assembly. Clean the inner race, cage and balls without disassembling.
  6. If the boot is to be reused, wipe the grease from the splines and wrap the splines in vinyl tape before sliding the boot from the shaft.
  7. Remove the inner (D.O.J.) boot from the shaft. If the outer (B.J.) boot is to be replaced, remove the boot retainer rings and slide the boot down and off of the shaft at this time.
To Install:
NOTE: Be sure to tape the shaft splines before installing the boots. Fill the inside of the boot with the specified grease. Often the grease supplied in the replacement parts kit is meant to be divided in half, with half being used to lubricate the joint and half being used inside the boot.
  1. Install the cage onto the halfshaft so the small diameter side of the cage is installed first. With a brass drift pin, tap lightly and evenly around the inner race to install the race until it comes into contact with the rib of the shaft. Apply the specified grease to the inner race and cage and fit them together. Insert the balls into the cage.
  2. Install the outer race (the body of the joint) after filling with the specified grease. The outer race should be filled with this grease.
  3. Tighten the boot bands securely. Make sure the distance between the boot bands is correct.
  4. Install the halfshaft to the vehicle.
Except Double Offset Joint To Remove:
  1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the precautions at the beginning of this section.
  2. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  3. Remove the halfshaft.
  4. Use side cutter pliers to remove the metal retaining bands from the boot(s) that will be removed.
  5. Slide the boot from the T.J. case.
  6. Remove the snap ring and the tripod joint spider assembly from the halfshaft. CAUTION
    Do not disassemble the spider, use care in handling.
  7. If the boot is be reused, wrap vinyl tape around the spline part of the shaft so the boot(s) will not be damaged when removed.
  8. Remove the dynamic damper, (if used).
  9. Remove the boots from the shaft.
To Install:
  1. Double check that the correct replacement parts are being installed.
  2. Wrap vinyl tape around the splines to protect the boot and install the boots and damper, (if used), in the correct order.
  3. Install the joint spider assembly to the shaft.
    • Install the snap ring
  4. Fill the inside of the boot with the specified grease.
    • Often the grease supplied in the replacement parts kit is meant to be divided in half, with half being used to lubricate the joint and half being used inside the boot
      1. Keep grease off the rubber part of the dynamic damper (if used)
  5. Secure the boot bands with the halfshaft in a horizontal position.
    • Make sure distance between boot bands is correct
  6. Install the halfshaft to the vehicle.
  7. Reconnect the negative battery cable.

Calm down,it's all about gaining knowledge.Most parts stores sell a boot replacement kit.And you shouldn't need a manual to do the job.You take the remainder of the old one off,the new one should wrap around and snap together hten you place the metal rings around and twist.I would price a rebuilt complete axle with labor verses you getting dirty just to save afew bucks and if you end up doing a not so good job you will still have to either do it again or pay to have it done right.Even shangind the axle is not that hard if you have the right tools.Good luck!

VERY involved. The dash panel has to be removed, and the book says to unload the A/C before attacking this. lots'a sketches and plastic bags to put things in for ID'ing. Unless you've ripped out a dash panel before, be wary of this repair. Get a Chrysler shop manual to help.

Good luck!

I have a 2002 crhysler 300m with a 3.5 high


Hello, Had the same problem but i did just the opposite I put a 2002 engine in a 2000. I found out that the cam sensor spocket (for the timing belt) Has the holes for the cam sensor in a different spots causing all kinds of problems also they did the same with the flex plate so I hope you took the one off the 2002 and used it or you will have to pull it back out and change it. Good luck

I need a free owners manual for a 2000 chrysler 300M


There will be a few minor differences between the 2000 and 2004, but for the most part, you can use the 2004 manual as a reference. Since it is illustrated, you can confirm visually when you are taking on repairs. I have owned a 2000 300m for several years. Might I recommend you visit 300mclub.org? I am a member there and have learned a ton about 300m's.
