CV Boot Cover Replacement

The rubber CV boot keeps grease in the constant velocity joint and protects the CV joint in the same way our skin protects the wrist joint.

A clicking sound (that increases with the speed at which a vehicle takes a sharp turn) strongly suggests that a half shaft is worn and in need of replacement.

To replace the CV boot cover, the wheel is removed and the suspension is disassembled to the point where the half shaft can be withdrawn from the transmission and suspension. The new CV boot is installed and the suspension reassembled.
