Having trouble sourcing cv boot

Unread post by Green T » November 2nd, 2014, 2:29 pm

I'm having trouble getting an outer cv boot to fit my t2.
I bought a pair online which fit the shaft but the diameter at the cv end is too big.I thought I had sourced the wrong ones so I bought a pair from sprint auto ( p.n. 331645k) same thing and repco also have the same part listed.
All the outlets say that that's the one until they are shown the problem.
The originals also had a lip that helps secure the wide end of the boot which isn't present on the replacements.

Has anyone else had this problem or have the part no. Of the correct boot???

Autopro have given me another part no.( cob001) But the dimensions are the same.
Boot length = 97mm
Shaft diameter = 22mm
Boot diameter = 95mm

Have you checked part numbers against a Navara or Pathfinder or even a much earlier 720 ute?

Likewise I would be checking with a drivetrain specialist - they have a listing for just every vehicle there is with a cross reference against required dimensions.

The listing for the boots I bought online covered terrano,d21 d22 navara, d21 r50 pathfinders not sure about the 720. Also xtrail,pintara and maxima are on the application list.
Will look in to the drive train specialist avenue if I get no joy.
Cheers Mr Hobbit.

I don't have part numbers, but I got the boots for my '98 model Terrano II at Autopro. The outers were a stock item, might even have been for a Navara, but they fitted straight on. The inner CV's had 3 big scallops out of them, so the boot had to have 3 big lobes to fit. Can't remember what I did there, it was a while ago now, but I think I still got new ones. The local Autopro were great, we would look at the catalogs and order stuff based on best guess. 9 times out of 10 it was correct, but they were happy to take stuff back tat didn't fit.

Some parts info and a workshop manual is available on a thread I started here: http://forums.overlander.com.au/viewtop ... =5&t=13208

Firstly thanks for the links.

I now have the cv boots I was after.
Apparently there are two drive shaft set ups the common one, which unfortunately for me I don't have, has a boot that is easy to get and is compatible with the navara, pathfinder and the others I listed.
I have the set up which needs a boot with these dimensions...
Shaft end diameter= 22mm
Boot length= 88mm
Boot diameter= 88mm

A friend of mine went to a drive train specialist to find this out for me after trying every parts supplier we could think of.
I haven't got the packaging to get the part no. But on the boot it has a BT-21 moulded in to the rubber and I have found a boot with the dimensions I needed from an ebay seller in the uk. part no. FCB2063.

Cheers

I got CV boots off ebay. In fact, go to Ebay for everything. Much cheaper. Nissan wanted $625 for a drag link assembly. Ebay, brand new, $90.
