Help Needed! Replacing All Cv-Boots On A 1999 Carrera C4


Recommended Posts

Hi

I have a 1999 Carrera 4. I saw last week that one of my front CV-boots was leaking. I ordered the inner and outer boots for all cv joints and I'm ready to tackle the job today.

I found out that I need a

CV-boot clamp tool

snap ring pliers

braker bar

and a 32mm socket with a braker bar.

The front one was broken, so I will start with the front ones today.

Does anybody know of a good write up for changing these boots?

I was trying to look for one, but could not find any.

Thanks beforehand

Hi,

I just got the right shaft off my car. It looks like the outer CV joint is not designed for disembling, so I had to pick apart the inner one. I can slide both boots on from inside.I had to use a torch and a three prong puller to get the end piece off. I don't think that was designed for an easy replacement either. They sent me the wrong boots via mail, so I could not continue the project today. I checked out Napa auto parts online and it seems like they are just selling the outer ones for front and back and the rear axle inner ones. I think I have to goto the dealer for the front axle inner boots because it does not seem like anybody is selling them for a four wheel drive...

I will let you know if I can get the parts back together.

Finally got everything back together. It took a while since I got the wrong parts in the mail and had to order them from Germany. Pulling everthing apart was hard and putting it back together was also the same way. I found out that two of the manufacturer boot clamps were so tight that I could not slide the boots on with them or without them so I went ahead and bought two universal boot clamps from Autozone to get the job done. I also got a joint braker from Harbour Freight for $16, since the rental one from Autozone did not work on my car.

I almost gave up on putting the second axle back together untill I looked at how much a half axle was....
