How-to: Service/Clean Rear Driveshaft CV Joint

I dont now if that are posted before. But nissan says that is not servicing from oem parts. I sure that parts are not listed like Audi and other cars. On my last summer car audi a6 2000. I clean it to like that 4years and still ride fine.For all i take that servicing from Jeep JK rear cv shaft. Pretty same as nissan but its impossible to separe the boot.

If you take your time i put 1.5hour to removal to reinstall driveshaft.

Simply cut the oem clip and replace by the small one cv clip available anywhere. Put WD40 or other under the boot to make it more easy to slip on shaft.

My CV boot has a small cut in it, do you know if there are replacement boots for these? or do i need to buy the dorman 932002 kit to replace the entire cv ?

Also, what kind of grease did you use?

Actually I figured this one out, without having to use any gasket sealer.

The best way to put this plate on without damaging it (it's a pain in the butt to put on unless you do it this way) is take your old CV joint, remove the bearings and carrier stuff and all that jazz, flip it around and use it as a press to press the plate on.




Just do it gently and go around in the star pattern and go around evenly tightening everything down and make sure the rubber seal stays in place as well- It should all clamp down and be nice and flush when you are done.

Post #5 has the full dorman kit. I believe there's another thread with more discussion about part numbers, different brands, good places to buy from, etc. This thread looks more to me about cleaning and repacking your existing CV though.

If you want to improve, be content to be thought foolish and stupid -
