If your boot has gone a good sign is the inside of your rims looking like the inside of your underpants after a good night out.

Covered in greasy shite.

SO go to pug and buy a new boot kit containing a new boot,new grease, new clips and a new ring pieceWhistle
And some new Gearbox fluid

Next up get the car ready:
Jack the car up
Take the wheel off
Empty the gearbox fluid
Loosen the hub nut off by removing the pin and using a large socket

Drop the ball joint (17mm socket)

Next up slip the top of the boot off and get your finger into the boot and pull as much of this evil Devil grease out.

It gets everywhere and i would wear gloves

Once thats cleaned up slip it backwards to allow you to do the next bit.

You will need to tap the Joint off the splines.
It will come off but you will need to tap and turn, it needs to come off evenly.

so TAP AND TURN

You will need to replace the ring that holds the joint in place.

You have one in your kit so replace it!!!!

Now you need to put the joint back on.


Best thing to do it to spin the nut back on, and hit it with a hammer till it goes over the ring.

The ring has a tendency to want to jump out so be carefull at first.
You can add a tie wrap to keep it under tension and when the joint moves into place just cut it off.

The nut will stop you from shagging the threads

Now the messy bit

FILL it full of your new grease, its a good idea to stick the clip on at the bootom of the boot first though

Talking of clips they are a tw4t to do.

I defy anyone not to swear whilst doing them.

Now add it to the car and put it all back Thumbs up

This should be FAQ'd before it gets lost please Admin.

Sorry Welly- I'm happy for admin to delete this before they FAQ it but.... which clips did it come with and how the fook did you attach them?
Last one I did had the one you have to pinch it over itself, but it's so tight Angry
Ended up using a big jubilee!!

The one Welly has is the genuine Pug one. You need a special tool to do the clips up. The CV boots from factors come with clips that you don't need tools for.
