You may have found in the past that the maintenance and replacement of worn boots has been costly and time consuming. This is usually because the entire driveshaft had to be removed in order for a new boot to be fitted.
Toyota has developed a 'split' boot, which can be fitted quickly without having to remove the driveshaft. That way, you can ensure your CV joints, which are far more costly to replace than a rubber boot, are properly maintained without having to have your car off the road for hours at a time.
Toyota Genuine Split Boot Kits [B14] are designed as a quick and easy replacement boot when your original boots are damaged so that your car's CV joints remain protected by keeping foreign matter such as stones or sand out.
Your car's front axles have four "constant velocity" or CV joints: two inboard and two outboard joints. The CV joints are encased by the boot, which is usually made of rubber or hard plastic. The boot maintains the CV joints' supply of grease on the inside and repels dirt and water from the outside. After a number of years and a certain amount of mileage, the boot may develop cracks or splits, which can eventually lead to damage to the CV joint.
If you notice a greasy or oily substance on your driveway, around the front or rear wheels of your car or any abnormal clicking noises while driving, your boots may need replacing. Normally, the driveshaft and the CV joint have to be removed to replace a boot. The Toyota split boot kit allows for easier replacement of the boot through its innovative design.
Fitting a Split Boot Kit is easy. Here are some helpful hints to get you started:
- Once all the excess grease from the old boot is removed, use the grease shield provided as part of the SBK packaging.
- Apply the lubricant provided to the groove side of the boot split.
- Always start at the large end of the SBK when joining the split.
- Always test the joint after connection by pulling apart to ensure correct joining.
- Fasten the small end of the boot to the shaft with the clamp provided before applying the grease provided.
- Always apply the fastening side of the clamps 180 degrees from the boot split joint.
