How to replace CV boot on 01 350 Rancher..

Trying to replace torn cv boot on front left outer side of my 4x4 350 2001 honda rancher i just picked up..
 
got cv axle out but the boot ISNT going to slip over the big part..
 
how does the CV joint come apart, its got to!  or how do you slip the boot over the joint?
 
thanks

    should have a lock ring inside the inner cv joint you remove to take it apart,,,,,

    For the outer I believe you have to pull apart the inner joint, then slide the outer boot down the shaft to replace it.

    Yeah, I believe you are right about that. They come apart just like front axles in a front wheel drive car if I remember right.

    The INBOARD CV comes apart with the removal of a lock ring inside it,,,, pull the inboard front boot loose and look inside. Remove ring and joint slips apart. If it's the inner boot to be replaced, then do it. If the outer is the bad one, do that and then reassemble.

    Don't knock the outer joint off, its not supposed to come apart. Do what gordo said he's bang on.

    Absolutely. That's why when you buy replacement axles the outer joint has to be purchased as the whole half shaft, and the inner you can buy just the joint.

    They make a special set of pliers. There are two different kinds of clamps that I know of for the boots. Advance Auto Parts has one kind of pliers. I don't know where to get the other set.

    Get a cv banding tool on ebay. I bought the Moose products tool, and the cutter on it broke in half, get the blue handled one for $29, it is real good quality, and it should last a long time. It has a complete ratchet, and cutter, If your replacing one boot now, you will eventually have to do more, so imo just get the tool then you can charge all your friends to fix theirs.
