SOURCE: How to disassemle CV joint
I have done CV joints here at my home garage for yrs, I recently did my 02 Esteem 1.8, I have a pic of the joint completely disassemble, and I mean as far as you can disassemble it. There are basically 3 types of joints, the rezeppa, which is the outer, the tripod and double offset joints are used on the inside.
The only tools needed are a large brass hammer, a vise, snap ring pliers, and CV boot clamp pliers.
You can remove both types of inners without special tools, the shaft has an external snap ring to hold on the race. The outer requires a vise and a large brass hammer, you hold the sahft in the vise, hold and pull on the joint and hit it close to the shaft, it has a circlip like the one used in the transmission, you have to "overcome" this clip. Then you simply turn the cage so to expose each ball out of the shell, and pluck it out, then rotate the inner race sideways and manauever it out, then the cage the same way.
The inner depends on what type, the tripod type come right out once the boot is removed, the double offset type is similar but it has a large circlip which can be plucked out with a small pick, it is a very weak clip. Then the cage and ball will litterally fall apart in you hands.
Clean and degrease all parts.
Assembly is a snap, the outer one goes on first, once the cage and balls are in the shell, and greased, put the shaft in and push down while working the clip smaller until is collapses enough to fit in the groove of the shaft, then tap it on down, the clip will emerge inside the joint and snap out to full size again. Again this exactly the same principle used on the stub that goes in the tranny.
The inners are just assemle in reverse order. Install the inner race, or tripod,depending on which one you have, then the balls and outer race, push it in the sheel (tulip), install the large circlip making sure the gap fall in between a ball race, then fasten the boot.

I think that a boot replacement is beter off done by a mechanic.
You have to remove the brake caliper then the hub assy. then remove the axle shaft then remove the cv joint from the shaft, install the boot and grease and install in reverse order.

if it help, having the abs light on in your vehicle just means that the abs system has a fault. normaly the abs sensor on one of the wheels are abd in 85% of all vehicles. if you are worried about driving the car, no worries, it is still safe to drive and you will NOT lose your brakes. your brakes are manual and the abs is electrical. i would say take your car to a dealership and have them rub a diagnostic test on your abs. they will be able to help you more then a regular garage will. most dont have the ability to check abs systems

SOURCE: peugeot 306 problem
i havne a 1996 peugeot 306xldt. Recently it has developed a problem and is running very lumpy. Ive replaced the air filter, glow plugs and tried injector cleaner which have made things a bit better but not cured it. It is also difficult to start and is blowing grey smoke out esp when cold
