Hope this helps a little:

REMOVING OLD BOOT

1. Separate the outboard CV joint assembly from the steering knuckle
2. Cut off the small boot clamp using side cutter pliers
3. Using a brass drift and a hammer, LIGHTLY tap evenly around the boot retainer to separate the boot from the joint assembly
4. Using a snap ring expander, expand the ears of the joint retaining ring and pull the joint off the drive axle

INSTALLING NEW BOOT

1. Place the small boot clamp over the drive axle and coat the inside of the boot with the proper CV joint grease, slide the boot onto the drive axle until the small diameter hole reaches the groove in the axle, then you can secure the clamp
2. Place a rigid boot retainer on the large end of the boot then push the joint assembly onto the drive axle until the joint retaining ring engages the axle grooves
3. Spread the jaws of the boot driver tool so they go out over the boot retainer, then turn the tool's tapered cup to tighten the jaws against the retainer
4. Place the point of the tool's drive screw in the depression on the end of the CV joint stub axle
5. Using a wrench, turn the tool's drive screw until the boot retainer is full seated on the CV joint

I forgot to mention -

Replacing your entire Drive Axle is important, it is considered unwise to just replace the boot, because you do not know what has gotten in to there. Replacing the boot isn't going to get the dirt and debris already embedded into the joint out, the new boot will just cover that up and keep it protected, all the while the debris is eating away and destroying your joint and axle...

just my .02

Re: cv boot removal and installation

Well here is the story... I bought an axle from schucks auto parts (checkers) and it was for one without abs. And of course they won't exchange it because they can't find my info. So I got one for 20 off some guy down here and it had a pretty small tare in it. Most of the oil was still in it. So I took and old shirt and cleaned all the old grease out and put new grease in it. I think I should be ok and if not I have the old one to put in there... I would have just replaced the entire axle but that was 65 and the kit was only 16 and I am not working so yeah...

Re: cv boot removal and installation

If I were to enter this situation as a technician talking to a customer, I would flat out tell you that replacing the whole thing is the BEST option you have.

Do you know how long the tear has been in the other boot before you bought it from the guy? That could be a determining factor in how much longer it will last, even with the new boot. Your joint will start to wear fast, debris inside the joint will fukk it up, and then you will be replacing it anyways...

You probably already knew all that, but I thought I should just drive the point home that this is one thing where it is VERY unwise to try and repair it, unless you have the proper joint cleaning materials and grease. Can't just spray the joint with water or whatever, has to be a solvent mixture and then dried and then greased...I have THAT write up too somewhere if ya want it...
