Outer CV JoiNt Boot Substitutes
« on: June 26, 2017, 12:42:28 AM »

Which other vehicles, such as the 1989 Mazda 323 or others, use the same CV Joint boots?  I'm specifically looking to use one of the split boots, as I don't want to pull out and disassemble the whole half shaft to replace a cut boot.  There was no contamination in the joint.

I have a '93 N/A 1.6 with 5 speed.

IMHO...don't waste your money or time on a split boot, at best it's a temporary repair that will fail.

A doorman universal CV boot works. Though I don't remember the exact part number I used. And in order to put it on without taking anything apart Doorman makes a installation tool that stretches the boot over the CV joint. Otherwise you'll have to take it apart. Though it would be easier taking the inner CV joint apart because it has a snap ring holding the roller bearings onto the inner CV shaft from falling off. That way you don't have to use a hammer to get the outer joint off of the shaft.

Doorman CV boot kit 614-001 is what I used. it fits the Miata
