C/v joint boots

REMOVAL

(1) Remove axle driveshaft from vehicle.

(2) Remove outer C/V joint.

(3) Remove outer C/V joint small clamp and remove boot (Fig. 7).

(4) Remove inner C/V joint boot clamps and remove boot.

INSTALLATION

The lubricant amounts included with replacement boots are different for inner and outer C/V joints.

Apply only the specified lubricant amount to each C/V joint.

(1) Clean the C/V joints and shaft of all old grease and foreign matter.

(2) Slide the inner C/V joint boot up the shaft and insert the lip located within the small-diameter end of the boot into the shaft groove (Fig. 7).

(3) Retain the small-diameter of the boot on the shaft with a ladder-type clamp in the boot groove (Fig. 7). Verify that the boot and lip are properly positioned on the intermediate shaft. Position the clamp locating tabs in the slots and tighten the clamp.

(4) Compress the clamp bridge with Remover/Installer C-4124. Squeeze the tool handles to complete the tightening of the clamp (Fig. 8). Care must be exercised when using the tool to avoid cutting through the clamp bridge or damaging the boot.

(5) Position the large-diameter end of the boot on the C/V joint housing.

(6) After the inner joint boot small clamp is installed, the inboard hub must be set to a service build length.

(a) Compress the inner hub down the connector shaft.

(b) Use a small blunt drift between the large end and the boot seal to relieve the pressure.

(c) The distance edge of the lip to the edge of the flange should be 181.00 mm (7.13 in.). This will eliminate excess air that can cause a ballooning affect and possibly cause damage to the boot.

(7) Verify that the boot is not twisted and that it is correctly positioned on the housing.

(8) Install the large ladder clamp on the boot and secure as done with the small ladder clamps (Fig. 8).

(9) Slide the outer C/V joint boot small clamp onto shaft.

(10) Slide outer C/V joint boot onto shaft and into position on shaft.

(11) Install small clamp to boot as done above.

(12) Install large boot clamp over outer C/V joint.

(13) Install outer C/V joint to shaft.

(14) Install large boot clamp to boot and C/V joint.

(15) Install the C/V driveshaft.
