Hello, the boot kits are only available after market and they are more expensive than what you can get the entire CV axle unit for on ebay if you wait for one to show up. I have bought mine on ebay for about $50 brand new. If you're just worried about the ripped boots, you can make your own with an old inner tube and use hose clamps to seal the ends. So basically its up to you how much money you want to spend. I like to fix things right, but I never overlook a cheap and easy solution to save money.

1993 Ford Festiva GL cv axle broke off in tranny. Need advice on how to remove safely without damaging tranny.


Use a prybar to separate the halfshaft from the transaxle. Is the inner cv joint still attached, so you can pry against it?

When makeing a left turn clicking.


this is the sign of a failing outer CV joint in the drive shaft. look under car at driveshaft. the rubber boot around CV joint is probably torn. This allows lube to fling out and water to come in, contaminating the CV joint. Replace the entire drive shaft instead of replacing only the outer CV joint.

What is that knocking sound when I'm turning left?


it usually signifies a broken CV joint. check the drive shaft for the left side. the outer rubber boot is probably torn, this allows grease out and contaminants in. It is wise to replace the drive shaft as an assembly instead of just replacing the outer CV joint- they usually come with a lifetime warranty.

Ford festiva cv boots


Depending on mileage and how long you have driven with a damaged boot, it may be a good idea to swap in a new axle ( re manufactured). If you are handy enough to get the axle out, you should be able to get the old joint apart by putting the axle in a vise, cutting off the old boot, and removing the joint from the axle. There are various ways that these are fastened, but generally they are held in place by a circular clip or retaining ring. Check a manual for your specific type of retainer. Once removed, the joint should be completely disassembled and cleaned in solvent, and then reassembled. Then, you still have an old joint, which is why it is faster and easier and better to replace the axle. Good luck. Chip
