Re: release cv joint Topic is solved

new boot arrived today, and the turbo clamp fits perfectly, I haven't cinched it down yet but it's obvious it is the correct one. I'm kind of curious about this axle. Can you put a turbo CV joint on a N/A axle will it fit? I'm wondering if that was why I had so much issues with getting it off and ba...

Re: release cv joint Topic is solved

fcp is going to ship me a new boot kit for the turbo for free to see if the clamp will fit.
A1 service and they really didn't have to.

Re: release cv joint Topic is solved

So I've been really busy with work and finally tried to do this today.. There is no way that clamp with work, it needs stretched another inch give or take. It won't even fit over the metal part of the joint with it hooked together. Let alone fit over the boot. So I definitely need a larger clamp. Wh...

See if FCP can send you another kit (GKN does not sell the Oetiker clamp separately). The CV Boot kit is only $9....

Re: release cv joint Topic is solved

Correct non-turbo 850 glt. Boot was fairly easy to get on, little tight on the smaller end but I expected that. Not too difficult to get the larger side on, mostly just dealing with slippery rubber. I didn't have to pry with anything to get it to suck up onto it. Here is the link to what I bought. h...

Re: release cv joint Topic is solved

Here is another dumb question.. I bought the GKN loebro boot from fcp, went to slide the larger clamp on. It didn't want to slide over the bump, So I release the hook and went to put it on that way and it's short? 20191103_154443[1].jpg I have no idea how a person is supposed to clamp this on. The s...

Re: release cv joint Topic is solved

the snap ring was spread apart when putting back on. Still had to beat it on like crazy.. hope I didn't cause damage. But it appears to be closed up now and does rotate easily like it did before removal. Just hard to see now with the grease in there, don't want to wipe away new grease. Feels like I ...

Re: release cv joint Topic is solved

Kind of a dum question but how do you know with 100% certainity that you have the joint positioned properly when reassembling? The snap ring moves easily? I believe I have it on proper but thought I would ask the experienced here. Is it normal to have to beat the snot out of it reseat? Because I did...

Re: release cv joint Topic is solved

Yea that would be to easy with leaving the axle in. oh well.. Good tips on breaking axle nut loose, I ended up investing in a small battery impact for smaller stuff and air for bigger stuff. So worth the investment. If you don't have air, electric is a good option. I debated about it for a while act...

Re: release cv joint Topic is solved

I bought the CV Joint Removal tool a few months ago. I wised I bought this tool 15 years ago. I just replaced the CV Boots on my 2004 V70, this tool makes the job of separating the CV Joint so easy. This is one tool that is worth every penny. Make sure you use GKN boots (or Volvo boots). They are m...
