    Default changing a cv boot.

    hi all.

    well it looks like iv got two split inner cv joint boots to replace and iv never done one before.

    so, whats the best way of doing it?... can i just remove the bottom arm bolts and pull the whole suspension leg away from the body and split the cv joint apart without taking the cv out of the gearbox so i dont lose oil, or does the cv joint HAVE to be removed from the box in order to put the boot on?

    i think myself that il be able to remove the bottom arm bolts (and the brake calliper) and pull the cv apart but thats just a guess.

    and appart from it humping it down, iv got to do it asap lol.

    cheers


    *edit*.... hmmm it seems i can get "wrap around boots".... are they any good or are they just a quick fix which would do me great for now cause the conditions outside are baltic lol.
    al.
