In Topic: New Cv Boot Fit Tips And Torque Settings?

18 October 2014 - 10:40 PM

Maybe too late now but with some of Ford's driveshaft boots it's actually cheaper to buy the kit what does inner and outer than it is to buy the outer alone ;)

 

The place which replaced the outer boot on my ST had loads of inner boots spare that they couldn't give away :)

Already got the kit needed, but it was only just over a fiver.

Iirc the front hub nuts on the mk1 should be about 320Nm

I wouldnt worry with torque settings for the other bits just do them up tight.

EDIT - 316Nm, I have just checked autodata to confirm
 

Thanks, had to buy another torque wrench as mine only goes to 200nm, which is all i have needed until now

If the joint is still ok (ie, not full of water and grit!) then I'd use a stretch boot, saves having to dismantle everything and get CV grease everywhere lol.

Already have it nearly stripped.

Need the torque settings.

Got Sorted.

A rear abs ring fixed it, happy days.
