Constant Velocity Joint....

Post by Doo »

I need to replace the right hand CV boot. It's been a while since I did the Citroen, so I can't recall how the CV comes adrift.... #-o

Does the end just come apart from a spring clip or is it held together with a circlip & needs a circlip pliers?

Forearmed is always easier.

Thanks all 8-)

The BX and apparently my 2007 Dispatch (after having it up a lift today in my mates garage) is 'kiss it with a lump hammer'. Round circular clip inside.

Mate of mine was having real hassle trying to get one of those over the cone until I showed him the sneaky way.... Paint the cone with copper grease, then spray it with WD40. FOOM! :cd: The boot was on. He'd tried all manner of lubricant, including Pledge :-D But nothing worked. Try it 8-)

Anyhoo, yes I lamped it one time with the big hammer and it literally fell off 8-) The new boot was a quality item made for the Citroen shaft and it went on no bother.

Thanks chaps.
