2001 c5 driveshaft boot

Post by cornesoutafrica »

Hi guys.

Well. I have been busy cleaning my C5. Took off the front and cleaned as much as I can. Even partially dismantled radiator to get the trash out between the radiator and the condensor.

The Engine sump was leaking too. Resealed it although I am having my doubts....

Anyway. After further inspection I saw passanger side driveshaft outer boot is torn, sigh.

I did an ebay search but there are too many variants. How can I figure out which one I have to use? I have a 2001 c5 3.0 v6 exclusive auto.

Thanks in advance
Corne

If you put a search into Ebay it will probably come up with loads, if you are not sure about it, cross check it with others listed, you should be able to find what you want.

I don’t think I have your C5 VIN Corne, but there are several types for the 3.0 V6 depending on the Auto box you have and also they changed from a certain build date. Pop your VIN up if you want the part number for the boot kit.

Hi Marc

That is what I thought. That will clear the mountain of different types of CV boot kits.
My C5 Vin is VF7**************[VIN obfuscated, can be read by forum staff]

I'd appreciate it. possibly I can get the genuine one off ebay instead of getting an aftermarket one. I like to use OEM parts as much as possible.
Regards
Corne

Normally we'd ask you for a membership upgrade for parts info - but your car has the same part numbers as shown in my post above :wink:

Measure the driveshaft and CV casing diameters, I tried three on my X7 before I got the right one. Don't trust the adverts. Good variety on Ebay.
