Honda Accord, CV Joint Boot Replacement
Q: The outer CV boot on my '86 Honda Accord
needs replacement. How would I go about performing this type of repair?
you have to determine if you have the appropriate tools to disassemble
part of the front suspension and properly clean and service the CV joint
and boot. To a person with the proper tools, understanding, and, if a
first timer, a repair manual, it is not a difficult task. If you do not
have what is needed attempting this type of repair is not cost-effective.
You would be better off (less money spent) paying someone who does, to
perform the repair.
