With the car still on the ground, remove the centre cap from the wheel
and loosen the hub nut using a 32 mm socket (a 1¼" will do)
and a breaker bar. Loosen the wheel bolts while you're at it too (17 mm
socket). Raise the car and remove the wheel.
Remove the brake caliper (10 mm Allen) and rotor (5 mm Allen). Now you can
choose to either separate the ball joint or unbolt the control arm from
the subframe. I find the control arm to be easier.
Tilt the strut and pull the driveshaft out of the hub.
The inner CV joint is located right above the subframe. These grease
splatters are an indication of the leaky boot.
Cut the clamps and separate the shaft. It's much easier than the
this one just pulls right out.
Looks like my old boot was held by plastic wire ties, and there wasn't
much grease left.
Remove the snap ring on top of the shaft and gently tap the tripod bearing
until it comes off. It's VERY tight.
Once the bearing is removed, you can pull the boot off and wipe everything
The kit comes with a new boot, two rather awkward clamps and a bag
of fresh grease.
Clean the companion flange too.
Assemble the joint and fill it with fresh grease.
Pull the boot over the companion flange and crimp the clamps tightly.

for tightening torque for suspension bolts.
