Re: How to replace CV boot
For the boot kit, the axle comes apart from the inner end.
Cut the bands off the inner end, slide the boot back and clean the grease out, then carefully pull plunge joint apart taking note the orientation it was installed. Scribe a line to mark position of cage on inner end of axle shaft, then remove snap ring and pull cage and inner boot off.
Then you can cut the bands off of the outboard end, slide the boot off of the inboard end. Clean all the grease up, inspect bearings for wear. Slide new outboard boot on, put inner band on, apply grease packet, and install outer band.
Slide new inner boot on, reinstall cage in same position you removed it from and reinstall snap ring. Slide inner boot into position and install band on outer end, apply grease, reinstall plunge joint into cup in same position as you removed it from, and install inner band.
As for the spacer: MB297732
ETA: If the procedure isn't exactly 100% forgive me, it's 5am, I typed it from memory, and I haven't done one in probably 5 years.
