Hi, I'm new to the forum, I'm looking to carry out some repairs on my girlfriends Suzuki Alto 1.1 2004.
The problems I have is the drivers CV boot is split, ive spent a good while cleaning the grease from the area it leaked to get that job out the way first, now im faced with the task of replacing the boot itself, is the easiest thing to do is get one of these cone boot kits ?
Also could anyone tell me roughly what the procedure is to remove everything so i have access to the boot to then change it.
The other thing is im still learning some parts of mechanics as its only a hobby of mine, i have never seen this type of nut with the metal part facing down the nut of the track rod end... i need to replace this, what do i need to do to remove this metal prod ? is it just a case of levering it horizontal and cutting it off? as my normal socket will not fit over the nut.
Is there a special tool required.
Also if anyone could recommend me a place to purchase both parts (cv drivers boot and drivers track rod end) i would be very great full.
Thanks for any help.
