Re: Need to renew CV joint boot
I did the cv boot on my megane a few weeks ago and I was able to stretch the boot over the end joint.... took a while... a few swear words and a lot of effort but it saved me taking the shaft out.
The last one I did I knocked off the end of the cv joint but the is a sprung circlip and there is no way to get it back so I left it off.
This was the problem... but as far as I know its only there to stop the joint from separating when you have the hub off!
