    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.

    Not on mine Wayne ... everything seemed in OK order, just that with three of the boots split I decided to replace and regrease the lot. Have you had a bit of a look and wiggle to see if your have any issues under there?

    There can be.
    And it can get loud if ignored.
    If any noise at all it pays to check that all bolts are torqued to 25ftlb .
    Assuming bolts ok then a rotation by hand will indicate how much play.
    Small click ok but any noise indicates that it needs degreasing so best removed and checked for wear and damage/ repacked.

    Hi cbus...is that a typo on the torque for the cv joints (95ftlb) in post 49? been a while but isn't it more like 25ftlb?

    Hi Wayne... most mine ever had was a clicking noise before I pulled them
