Rear axle/CV boot

I did a quick search and didn't find an answer.

My rear axle/CV boot has a slit in it and is throwing grease around.

1. Will a generic boot fit?

2. How to change?

3. Can I run it for a day with out damage?

Re: Rear axle/CV boot

1. NO, not that I am aware of.
2. Remove the axle, cut off the boot then do this.....
3. NO do not do that!
It is easier if you buy the winter grade boots (more pliable) if you can get them.
Another thing they say helps is heating the boot and funnel both up with a heat gun to make them more forgiving.

This is a great video....do not try to pull the CV. You must buy a head band and blue tooth headset to complete procedure. Well worth it.

Re: Rear axle/CV boot

I did have luck with taking the old boot down to Carquest and having them search. I was looking for the rear inner and their replacement was:
CFD 85-1172
I'm not sure how long it lasted for I carry a complete set of spare axles and I'm not sure where it is. Hope this helps,
John

Canada Re: Rear axle/CV boot

take the shaft apart and change the boot properly.
dont drive it with the torn boot because dust & dirt will get in there and wear out your cv joint.

That is actually how I do it but wanted to show him the "easier" way to do it.
I have re-used the C clip three times on one axle so far with no problems.

No wonder it didn't work for me.

I wasn't able to get the stock boot to stretch over the funnel. Maybe the carquest boots are more flexible. I would think a stiffer boot with less flex would hold up better.

I did pick up one of these from a site sponsor. A little insurance that can keep dirt out of a ripped boot and keep you riding for the day.
