Pontiac, Bonneville, 1992, right axle outside CV Boot, -How do I replace boot, can I use a split type replacement boot (if so, do I need to remove the wheel & disc brakes assembly to install), or is best to replace the whole axle assembly


split type is temporary fix -

split type is temporary fix - install a new cv assembly. go to autozone.com - register - add vehicle and go to repair section for step by step with pics.

The split boot most likely

"Split Boot" is a waste of

"Split Boot" is a waste of time and money. Temporary repair. Won't last. Entire "Half Shafts" have come down in price. Many come with a "Lifetime Replacement Warranty". Swapping out the entire "Half Shaft" is a better route to take.
