Hello, Replacing the c/v boots depends if they have been replaced before with new axles on not. The original c/v joints on earlier models is a sealed unit and you have to have a expensive tool to crush the new cans they are best done by someone in the business. The newer type you can replace the boots but you still have to remove the axle from the car. To do this, you need to elevate the car securely, remove the wheels, remove the long 13mm bolt from inside the hub then place jack under the differential and unbolt the mount from the frame, let the diff down remove cover, remove "C" clip from the end of the axle, jack the diff up as high as you can get it, take axle down from the wheel side, and then slide the axle out of the diff. Then you slide the boot down and at the end of the axle you will find a snap ring. remove snap ring and then tap the c/v joint out.
If you have the old style it's usually best to upgrade it with the new style so that in the future the boots won't be so hard to replace.
I hope this helped.
CYA, Gator241

hold the dealers feet to the fire-take it back and have them fix it- they should do this for no charge-if there's still a problem get ahold of vw and tell them what their dealer ship is like-a factory rep will be your friend- cheers Denny

I need labor times for installing a rear inner cv boot and axle seal on the opposing side. The vehicle is a 2006 Corvette.


Hello, you can plan on about 3 to 3-1/2 hours total. Two hours for the inner cv boot and 1 to 1-1/2 for the seal.

Axle will not come out of the axle housing


I quote from service manual

1 . Raise and support the truck. Remove the rear wheels, the brake drum or brake caliper and rotor. If this is a disc brake, support caliper with wire. Remove seal retainer nuts from axle
housing.

2 . Pull out the axle shaft from housing. Remove the snap ring and bearing race from the axle shaft. Cut the bearing retainer. Break the bearing cage using a hammer and chisel and remove cage and rollers.

3 . Remove the oil seal, the seal retainer and the parking brake assembly (rear). Using a hydraulic press and bearing splitter, press the inner race from axle shaft. Inspect axle shaft for seal wear. Ensure that the shaft is not bent.
