CV Joint Gaiter

Recommended Posts

Hey all,

I was investigation another probrem I have with my boxster S and came across yet another issue. The CV joint gaiter has split and so I need a new one as soon as possibly.

Question - are these easy enough to change, do I need any special tools, and does any one have an intstructions for doing this.

Huge thanks all

That looks familiar.

I just did this, no special tools required other than a huge breaker bar to get the rear axle bolt off - it's torqued to 365lb/ft!

I have plans to write this up and have the pictures, but have yet to find the time.

The one thing Im worried about on carrying out this job is I only have a torque wrench that goes up to 210 Nm (154 lb/ft) and i need to tighten the axle bolt up :unsure: :unsure: :unsure: :unsure:

When you get the old one off, you'll get a good feel for how much force you need to exert. I simply applied what felt like a similar abount of force and called it good. The technical term for 365 ft-lbs is "freekin' tight!" :D
