    Default Inner cv boot

    Hi just a quick question. I've just noticed that the inner boot is split on my drivers side driveshaft. Its a 2.0 dti and has the split driveshaft with the big metal carrier between the hub and the engine (if that makes any sense ) Can i remove the driveshaft from the hub to the bracket cutting the boot of and maybe getting to the circlip and leave the rest of it in place to avoid draining the transmission fluid to get the boot on instead of removing the bracket and the full driveshaft. Wooh i've made it sound complicated but any help would be massively appreciated. Thanks

    its a real pain doing it that way , i tried to but couldnt split the driveshaft at the carrier so ended up taking the whole thing off
    if you have to take the whole thing off just make sure you can get the fill plug out of the top of the gearbox first !!!!

    Cheers Mark. I drained the transmission a few months ago and put new fluid in so it should be easy to get the bottom plug out again to drain it and the top plug for the refill. Oh well it's a job for tomorrow. It would probably be a nightmare trying to get to the circlip with it in place so I should stop being so lazy. Thanks again Mark

    Well that was a waste of time getting a new boot. Managed to get it off and there is a load of play on the inner joint so I'll have to keep a look out for another driveshaft. Damnit
