How to Replace the CV Boots on a 2005 Nissan Titan

164

Most problems with the CV joints result from bad CV boots. The boot keeps dirt and water away from the joint while it keeps the grease in. As the boots break down, they will tear and allow dirt to get to the joint. The dirt works like sandpaper on the joint as the wheel spins and it will destroy it. If you inspect the boots as part of the regular maintenance routine, you can prevent further issues by replacing them when they sustain damage, prolonging the life of the CV joint.

Tools Used: Tools, Automobile jack, Jack stand, Wheel chocks, Lug wrench, Screwdriver, Pliers, Wire ties

Replace CV Boots

Place a set of wheel chocks behind the rear wheels of the Titan. Lift the vehicle on the side you are starting with using the automobile jack. Place a jack stand under the Nissan and raise it to the frame of the truck. Loosen the lug nuts with the lug wrench and remove the wheel from the Titan.
