Default how hard is to change CV boot on 95 accord

anybody done this, its on an auto 4cyl front passanger side.

i have changed out axels but never just the boot, and considering the boot is only 10 bucks with all clamps and greese my friend went that route becasue she dident have the cash....so how hard would it be for me to replace.

1. Raise the car up
2. Put car on jack stands
3. Remove Passenger Tire
4. Remove that huge center bolt
5. Remove the steering knuckle (not quite sure) it's in the center on the bottom of the lower control arm. You might need a puller (Free tool rental from autozone). Or if you have access to a lift and a hammer you can hit that out like i did, without hitting the threads!.
6. Pry axle out carefully with a flat head.
7. Then from there remove the old boot, and clean it up with some good degreaser and get all the rocks and stuff out. You might need to remove the inner boot to change the outer boot, that's the problem I ran into, so I just changed the entire axle for $70.00 from autozone with lifetime replacement.

8. One thing, it's much easier changing the entire axle, well for me it was...

Hope this helps you out...

why are you replacing just the boot? is it leaking or is it torn up where dirt can get inside? once dirt gets in, it'll ruin the axle and you may as well just buy a new one now.

"snap" boots are a temporary solution to a bigger problem
