Undo the clamp holding your old boot on. Remove the circlip holding the CV on the splined axle shaft, remove the CV, remove the old boot. Remove the circlip on the newly purchased axle, remove the CV, slide the old boot on, put CV back on, install circlip, grease CV, clamp boot, install grease shield - done! - http://www.my2002tii.com/july2003-2.htm

If it's a clear boot, we can talk about boiling water and a shoe horn...

its a yellow boot does it need to be a clear boot? Also the first link you post the axle is totally different looking and the second link doesnt have any kind of info...

oK, so it seems like you have the boots with the gear oil in them instead of the ball bearing CV boot type.

Start by draining the oil via the bolt on the axle, remove the clamps on either end of the boot.

I was able to have access to a Harbor Freight press, and pressed the pin to oneside and muscled on, you can muscle it off the same way. If you dont have a press, you can use a spoon, and a vice to work it off.

Download the word file from the link and it will walk you through the process. It's not too difficult.

Pressing out the pin also works and makes things very easy.
