Angry Torn CV boot

How many miles do you think you can drive before it locks up? I don't have any money at the moment and dont want to have to buy a new axle.

Is it making noise yet? If it is probably not to terribly long. Somebody makes a 'repair' boot that you can install without taking the axle off of the car, this will at least extend the life of the joint till you can afford a new shaft.

Isn't a factory warranty cover it. I think that you should not wait too long. It is going to make it worse and it will cost you more at the end. It happened to me. Actually replacing CV boot is not very expensive if you take your car to a right place. You should look for few shops in your area that can do it cheaper. Call them and ask for the estimate. But never take it to big places like Goodyear or Firestone they are going to rip you off big time. Buy the parts yourself and look for cheap labor.

Well, it depands on which side of the CV Boot wone out, if its the outer boot, it could be easy to do the repair by yourself, but if its inner boot, then I suggest to replace the hold shift!!
Dealer will be pricey but they will have 30 days warrenty and they use rebuilt Subaru shift!! I was replaced it years ago in dealer and it cost me $400 Canadian dollers!

I've got a torn cv boot on the inner and am debating using the replacement that doesnt require removing the whole axle, I realize that since it has a seem cut down the middle of it that it isn't as effective/has a shorter life span.

Is this a bad choice as far as a quick fix? I was looking at some on google.com Could use some more suggestions too!

How much are these boots that dont require you to take the axle off?


Personally, I would replace the whole axle, you can get it from NAPA, O'Reilly's for about 80bucks. Taking the axle off is surpisingly easy.

however, I got lucky and found someone local to help me repair the boot, the proper way. its not as bad as you think. I think there is a youtube tutorial, if not on scooby mods

They're about $7 on google.com, its cut so you just slide it on and clamp the sides down. I would like to replace the axles but they're still good and money is a bit of an issue right now.

So you can repair the original boot without replacing it? I'm going to have to look into that

In same situation right now...07 wrx. Outter boot....I heard only use OEM. Replacements. Those cheap aftermarket axles can be off balance and vibrate.. after much research I'm paying to have boot replaced not whole thing even if its cheaper...not worth it
