Default NW Front CV boot split: availability/replacement

Just noticed the early stages of a split CV boot on my NW. Front right outside.

Mits tell me they can get a replacement boot kit but only for the inside boot??
They followed it up and said it was suggested to replace the complete shaft as the outside boot is not available.

They've offered an aftermarket shaft at $240 as a cheaper alternative to an genuine shaft.

Anyone come across this before? Which way did you go?
I was keen to regrease and replace the boots on the oe shaft - as I've caught this quite early.

Cheers

I've split a rear right outer boot, speared it with a stick. Through researching I found that what you've been told is in fact true; there is no boot kit for the outer. Genuine anyway. Lookup Febest. There are inner and outer boots available however it is not possible to release the outer cv joint. It is pressed together in the factory for life. Therefore unless you've got a tool to spread the cv boot over the cv joint your new outer boot will have to fit into place via the inner end of the driveshaft and that means removing the inner boot too. I'd go for changing that boot at the same time given the investment in effort.


I went to a cv specialist after digging around in the grease for the non-existant circlip to release the non-releasable outer cv joint. I supplied the boot and they fitted. I was advised that the process to clean out the old grease is as tedious as bending the joint as far as it will go and wiping whatever grease presents itself and continue this until you've got as much as possible. It is not possible to wash the joint because of the risk of leaving degreaser wash in the joint.


What was interesting to see was the relative size of all the various cv's in the workshop. The Paj driveshaft is a significantly larger size to your average driveshaft. I would not consider an aftermarket driveshaft btw. Too many reports of them being inferior. The cv specialist mentioned that the driveshaft would probably still be ok even if a bit of muck got in. He didn't really seem concerned unless the driveshaft was exposed to basically mud for a bit of time. Given the cost for a replacement you'd probably want to drive it until it showed signs it was failing but if you were looking for a replacement then Amayama or Partsouq would be the way to go unless you're happy to pay the grand extra to the local dealer.

Depending on your location someone like (see link) may possibly be able to offer aftermarket stretch boot & fit.
They'll sort it out

http://australiancv.com.au/

Talking to Misty if your talking to spare parts interpretors is not sound professional advice by any means or in any way shape or form, merley what they can supply, not what can be done if that makes sense.
Some interpreters are worth their weight in gold, but most are not.

From what I hear, lifted vehicles, vehicles used for 4wd application, after market CV joints in Pajero this is, limited lifespans, if it is stock & just A town vehicle light duty application might be fine.

BUt nothing wrong with shafts you have, just need repacking & new boots, trick is find some stertch boots & A fitter !

Only replaced a few Pajero, Triton boots. Thought they were pretty easy.

From memory -

Remove whole shaft assembly from vehicle. Remove circlip that holds inner CV onto shaft. Loosen clamps that hold boot onto inner CV. Slide inner CV off shaft. Remove spring clip off shaft that stops inner CV sliding on to far. Remove inner CV boot off shaft. Undo clips and slide outer CV boot off shaft.
Outer CV stays on shaft.

Reassemble with new boots as appropriate.

I didn't look far, but I don't think there was any changes after 2004.

Contact them to find out, or input Vin into their search function.

Perfect thanks for the help, I'll stick with my first thought, new boots for the original shaft.

I made a few calls - and the outer is available aftermarket.

AustralianCV were very helpful - they said that Bursons can supply the same KOK brand kit they would use - CVB VL85.

Seems strange you can get a genuine inner but not outer - but life goes on.

Cheers

I think it comes down to the fact that the inner cv joint can be dismantled but the outer can't. Why the driveshaft is designed in a way that the most likely point of wear and failure or damage can't be repaired is beyond me. If the replacement driveshaft was say at most $500 I wouldn't be so concerned and I still think the manufacturer would get a decent cut of the profits. Asking ~$2500 is plain robbery.
