The boot can most likely can be changed without removing the drive shafts, if you go to an auto accessories shop & have a look at the new boots you may be able to see how to do it,I'm not sure if you need a special tool to put the clamps on or not the new boots or not.....hope this helps.....cheers

Cv boot failure


The best thing to do is completely remove the front drive shaft (assuming you are talking about the front CV boots).
1) Jack up the front end of the vehicle.2) Remove front wheel(s), track rod ends and slacken [don't remove completely just yet] the centre hub nut and remove split pin.3) With the gear in neutral, and using an appropriately sized round punch and hammer, punch out the location pin from the drive shaft where the drive shaft meets the gearbox output shafts.4) With the assistance of a flat screwdriver, lever and pull the drive shafts off the gearbox output shafts and let them drop down. 5) Using a rubber mallet, hammer the drive shaft through the front hub. You kept the nut on the end of the shaft initially so as to prevent damage to the drive shaft threads during hammering. This nut will have to be backed off and eventually removed as the shaft slides through and out of the hub unit.
With the entire shaft removed from the vehicle:
1) Cut off or slacken and remove any rubber boot retaining clips.2) slide the rubber boot(s) towards the centre of the shaft.3) Remove the inner joint first by using a small, flat screwdriver to flick out the retaining wire from the inner lip of the joint. (Keep this wire)4) Slide off inner joint cup and clean.
5) Locate the spring clip from the inner end of the shaft and carefully remove without over-stretching. if you have no replacement.
6) Slide off inner C.V. joint, and clean.
7) Remove damaged boot(s), clean all components, re-grease with LM grease and replace.
8) Reinstallation is the opposite of removal steps.


Note: Take care when re-installing drive shaft to gearbox output shaft. This will usually only align to a single position. Before tapping retaining pin back into place, visually inspect alignment of the shaft's holes. You can use your round punch to help align the holes before re-installation of the retaining pin.


Tip: With the removal of the front drive shafts, it may be a good opportunity to also replace front gearbox output oil seals and front wheel bearing-drive shaft dust seals. These are fairly inexpensive and may prolong the life of components as well as reduce the need for repetitive removal of parts.

Inspect the boot of the drive shafts for tear or loose parts. IT may also need some greasing. If the noise is louder when turning then it is the drive shaft for the from which may need just greasing or replacing.

i am not sure just what shaft you are talking about,i think you mean the outer tie rod end and the seal you mean is the dust boot on the tie rod end, when you buy a new end it will come with a new boot. but if you mean the front axle shaft it should not cause the tire to wear funny it might cause some noise or a shake but not a wear problem.

I would start by checking the wheel bearings or brakes and rotors and the worst case your four wheel drive is stuck engaged (Happened to my brothers awd impreza- half shaft boot tore filling with dirt and debris) , to check wheel bearings, jack up that corner by safely placing the jack on the frame. then try and shake the tire. if it doesn't have any play then check your rotors by feeling carefully inside the brake dust shield. if your rotor is bad then it will be uneven due to bear pad rivets. as far as transfer-case issues, shift into neutral let off the brake and put it into 4x4 low then move ten feet then shift back into 2x4. if stuck then it is a half shaft issue.

The rubber cover on the left side axel is tore. I need to replace the joint I think. How do I do this?


You will need to remove the front wheel. Unbolt the caliper and move aside. Remove the rotor. Remove the axle nut. Unbolt the 3 hub/ bearing bolts and remove hub assembly. Pull the axle shaft out through the opening left by the hub bearing. Cut off the old boot and clamps. Hold axle shaft and tap joint and axle stub off of shaft with a hammer. Install new boot on shaft and reverse steps for assembly.

Much easier to change the whole half shaft, and, after you exchange the old ones, not a great deal more costly... and, yes, that is what's wrong.

How often to replace cv boots/cv joints/axle?


If something off the road tore the boot, yes but if it has not been tore long and you don't hear any clicking noises around corners, you can just replace the boot.
