    A great tool to help with this job after the bolts have been cracked and when installing is a t- handled, ball-end allen key.

    I just got some boot repair kits from Roy. The bolts in the kit are 12 point, spine type socket screws (Nigel mentioned earlier). Lucky I have a socket tool to fit as you won't find it in most retail outlets. Maybe Roy should stock these as well.

    Many, many thanks for this thread. I don't know where I would be without your step-by-step and a smartphone :confused:
    You have also answered the specific question I needed to finish the last part of my first CV joint refresh and reboot ... the circlip. By the thread here, the advice is drop the dished washer and the circlip will fit back in cause for the life of me, I just can't fit it back in. So, before resorting to a sledgehammer, I will now dump the dish :D;)

    And check the tightness after a few 1000 km.
