2007 Polaris Outlaw 525 IRS rear cv boot replacement


Recommended Posts

Should just pop out with a little persuasion. Stick a small pry bar between the cv joint and the case and give it a little push while pulling on the cv joint. there is a snap ring that sits inside a recess. Just dont go all prime-evil on it.

Does the retaining clip inside the boot have to come out (and if so how?) to remove the axle, or just by pulling the axle will it come out?

Thank you again for your information!!

If I am not mistaken, the inner part of the joint is bolted to the brake disc or the sprocket depending on what side it is on. As far as the circlip goes, I think it just holds the joint to the half shaft. It shouldn't need to be removed unless you are actually replacing or rebuilding the joint itself. What Voodoo is referring to is the snap ring that holds the inner side of a traditional cv joint in, that type just slides straight into a splined socket usually on a differential. I believe that yours is a bolt on type.

Once the half shaft it off the machine, just pull back the boot you are replacing, or cut it off for that matter and the joint should slide right apart. Then slide the new boot over the shaft and put the joint back together and install the retaining straps on the boot. Make sure to re-grease the joint.
