2003 Outlander CV joint and boot replacement

Hi Guys,

I'm new to the forum.

I have a 2003 Outlander 400 that was stolen last week and recovered within 3 days. Good news that I got it back. Bad news is they trashed the outer rear boots on both sides and inner CV joint on the left side. I've got the wheel and nut off but can't figure out how to get the shaft out to replace the boots and the CV joint. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Dave

Hi,

Thanks. I found that on YouTube and had a look. I think I need to remove the swing arm which requires a special socket I believe. It was late last night when I found the info so I'll have a look at it today.

I had to do my rear axle on my 2012 outty and it wasn't too bad. A few guys said you don't need to drop the swing arm but I did. Once the axle was free of the swing arm I used a strap wrapped around the inner CV to pop the axle out.

Check youtube there is a few CV boot replacement videos and how-to remove the axle videos too.

Well they caught an a**hole riding it pulling a stolen lawnmower. He tried to get away but was not successful. That just added another charge for him. I can't say for sure he was the same guy that took it but at least someone got charged.
