How Do Replace the CV Boots on a Polaris 700 Sportsman?


Park the Sportsman on a flat surface. Wedge the wheel chocks behind the rear wheels. This is important for safety reasons so that the Sportsman does not move backwards. Jack the front of the vehicle up and unbolt the lug nuts from one of the front wheels and remove the wheel. Unbolt the stick stopper from the A-arm and remove it. Remove the bolts from the tie rod end with a wrench and remove it from the strut. Unscrew the two mounting bolts from the brake calliper and slide the brake calliper off the brake disc. Remove the retaining nut from the axle and slide the hub out. Loosen the nut holding the lower ball joint in place. Tap the lower A-arm lightly so it disengages from the lower ball joint. Remove the but holding the lower ball joint in place and disengage the lower-A arm from the strut. Swing the strut slowly in an outward direction in order to move it out of the way of the axle shaft. Slide out the axle shaft from the strut. Remove the clamps from the inner CV boot. Slide the inner CV boot down the axle shaft until the inner CV joint becomes accessible and then remove the snap ring from the CV joint housing. Detach the axle shaft assembly, including the axle.
