Does anybody know how hard it is to replace the outer cv boot? I have a tear and just ordered a new kit. If somebody has a manual they could scan and post of what all parts come off or some tips that anybody has when replacing the boot it would help.
it is not that hard to do at all and noone even told me how (and i am 14 years old-was13 at the time), i kinda just figured it out as i went....with a guy like honda mech. around anything is easy, so you should figure it out with his input
no i did not buy the stock ones, i bought some other cheap ones for 20.00 with grease included, of course i had to buy a halfshaft to because i tore my joint to pieces. the parts were not that cheap made but they had been sittin' on the shelf for more than 1 1/2 years so i got good prices...they were still in the box so that's alright.
i wish i would have bought the gorilla boots but mud nationals was that week and i was in a hurry. the guy i know that has the arctic cat dealership in New Roads works on hondas and he had the parts i needed on the shelf.
the dealer wanted over $200 bucks for the half-shaft, boot, and grease.
got it all for about $95 or something in close proximity to that from the guy that has the cat dealer.
THanks Honda Mechanic! Your help is very appreciated. Yeah at first I bought the Honda OEM boots from honda b/c everything was closed on Saturday. But I just returned them to honda and called gorilla and got the thermo plastic boot kit. Thanks for the input!
ive tore 3 outer boots and then the dirt that got in it thoes 3 diff times finally wore it out and it started clicking and boooommm, there she went!!! i fix the boot very quick everytime but u can't stop the dirt getting in it on the way home.
