Question about 1993 Nissan Pathfinder
If you remove the 6x 12mm bolts from the diff to remove the shaft, then remove the IFfitted free wheeling hub 6 cap screws, C clip, take wieght of 4x4 onn the lower con trol arm and remove the 4 12 bolts that hold the top ball joint the shaft will now come out.
at the diff end of shaft is a cap aprox 60-70mm diam, remove it best way is to gently slide the shaft in to the joint and it will pop the cap out. remove the C clip on the shaft, loosen the bands on the boot tap shaft off the joint remove the boot.
remove the bands on the outer joint , remove the boot or whats left of it. wipe out the old grease, repack with the special grease supplied with the boot kit try and get down in the joint swivel it at the same time.fit the new boot and bands.
revese order to finnish off. When doing the inner boot slide the CV joint in the middle of the travel then tighten the bands if you dont do this you can pop the boot as the pressure builds up as the shaft goes in...if the inner boot is ok have a good look replace the grease as well OEM boots ar the best aftermarket ones dont last long, in Australia that is.
tighten the 6 bolts on the diff realy tight pref use lock tight they can work loose.
you can do this in about 1.5 hours.......any problems let me know.done this heaps of time......

If you are trying to replace just the boot i will recomend you to buy a two piece boot than will be instaled with many little bolts and cut the old one with a nife, because it is kind of hard to replace with one piece boot, you have to hammered the end until come out, and to do that you have to complete remove the axel from car, or also just replace the whole axel and save time.
