Well my passenger side 'inner' boot finally ripped, knew it would happen sooner or later, it's been rubbing for over a year... actually lasted a lot longer then I though it would.
But my question is, I plan on fixing it myself, ordered the boot kit from Nissan yesterday. If anyone has done it out there just curious on the best plan of attack to remove the axle. I've done a couple 'boot replacements' on my old Toyota and it was a pain in the rear, just hoping it'll be easier on the Nissan.
Thanks,
Dave

It doesn't look like it would be very hard, I just did both cv axles on my wifes quest and it didn't take 2 hours from start to finish. It should just pop right out, I am sure it is just held in by the nut on the wheel, and a c-clip on the front diff. Then the cv joint should just pop off of the axle with the same type c-clip. I will look in the service manual in a few minutes and let you know more.

dissasembly cv shaft engine side
1. mount in a vise
2.remove boot bands
3.remove stopper ring with flat screw driver
