I need to replace the inner cv boot on the short (driver's side) cv axle (half axle) on a 1986 Volkswagen Jetta. Can I do this by only disconnecting the inner end of the axle?


On a regular US/Asian car you replace the entire shaft. Reason being it is cheaper to get a rebuilt exchange than to take the shaft to a machine shop have them take it apart put on a new boot and reassemble it. I would think the same principle would be at play on a German car but who knows.

The el cheapo way to do this on a normal car is to buy a replacement "split boot" at a parts store. This is put on with some very high tech rubber to steal glue and zip ties and will get you through until the shaft itself fails and the labor to remove and replace the whole enchilada is justified. The split boots come in two generic sizes.

Good Luck

Need to replace a cv boot on a 97 accord.


replace the whole axle, they arent that much money, and you have to take it out anyway just to spend a bunch of time putting the boot on a axle with wear on that joint anyhow. ;)

Drive axle boot is ripped and needs replaced


The problem you have is that to replace with a real boot, you have to pull the axle and take apart a CV joint. The labor involved mandates putting a new axle in as opposed to paying for all that labor and then just replacing the boot. Autozone and advance sell wrap around and two part replacement boots that you put on, glue, and then fasten with zip ties. I ran a bootless saturn for two years, protected only with duct tape, until the wheel bearing went out, then I did both at the same time.

Cut outer cv boot need to replace dont no how


You need a factory replacement boot...you will need to take the axle out. The easiest method it to buy a new axle and replace the whole thing, but if you want to go the other way, cut the old boot off and clean up the area free from grease. Then pull the axle all the way over to one side and remove the first ball...repeat this until you have all of the ball bearing out. The axle will now come out. You now can place the new boot on and push it back out of your way to repeat the ball bearing process of putting them in one at a time until all is there...you will need a clamping tool to put the new clamps on. Put your new grease in and slide your boots up to the proper place and clamp them on and put the axle back in. You see why I said it is easier to buy a new one, expecially if you have never done this before, but do not use a split boot kit...it won't make it 20 miles and will come apart. OME boot only! Other boots are too soft and will only last 1 year. Good luck!

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

Yes u do if u use a factory boot, but there is a special split boot in the aftermarket that lets you do it with the axle in place, call a large parts store and see if they make them for your application.
