I have a 2002 Gem E2 and need to replace outer cv joint boots need how too
I just did this… It is not easy. When you get the half-shaft off you need to remove the spring “c” clip inside the shaft end. There is a special tool m ost auto repair shops have, to do this for a small fee, or free. A kit from NEV parts contains the special grease and clip-bands, too.
I just replace the shaft. For me, it is not worth the effort to repair.
$150.00 per shaft, vs. $14.00 for a boot kit is a better deal. If, the balls aren’t clanking, and the splines are ok. grease-up, re-boot, and go!
Thanks I thought the same thing already have the boots $15 each with clamps and grease
