Well all good now that I have replaced the knocking strut (wasn't the CVs after all or at least wasn't the only problem), $130 for a new driveshaft is probably still OK even though it was a bit of a waste of money.

Just put new KYB's up front, knocking now officially gone properly, hadn't really given enough time to testing if the driveshaft fixed the problem emoticon

Yeah, that sounds reasonable to me, locally it would've cost me more than 10 times that for a new genuine driveshaft from Nissan. Your replacement part was rebuilt, right? And you got the keep the old shaft as a spare? emoticon

It's always nice to have spares if you go 4WDing and have an excessive lift installed etc... emoticon

Re: WARNING - Not all CV drive shafts are compatable with Xtrail


Hi guys

Don't know if it's clear from my picture but a couple of days ago I noticed a boot of the front left drive shaft (cv joint on wheel side) has been torn all the way around (360degrees). The rubber is also greasy on the outside.

]--Log in or sign up to see linked image content--

It's torn just next to the clamp so it seems (by sliding the rubber back and forth) that only a part of the shaft was exposed and maybe not the joint itself.

It's possible it has been like this for a very long time. Bought the car [sign in to see URL] ago from a dealer and have never looked at it, maybe it was already like this when I bought it.

What do you recommend I do? I'm a backpacker so I don't have a garage. I do have some tools but no torque wrench. Can the boot be easily replaced or what parts all have to come off?
Do I better let a mechanic do it? Do you think the cv joint will need replacing as well?

Thank you

Without a torque wrench or a garage it is best left to a mechanic to replace the boot.
Try to get them to replace it with a genuine Nissan boot rather than a "universal" one as they are too big for our CV joints and rub excessively on the corregations of the rubber causing early failure.

Thanks!
Do you know what the expected time is to perform this job and the price for a genuine boot? I'm in Exmouth so they might charge a bit more. Going to a Nissan dealer is a bit of a detour but an option as well.

Do a search for CV Boots and you will find the original thread on that topic.
Back in 2012 original Nissan boots cost about $100 and time for one installer was 45mins with the universal boots but I would expect 1-2hrs with the genuine boots being a little more difficult to install.

I need some additional information here please? Tell me why you would replace just a boot for $100 when for $130 you can put a reco driveshaft in for less labour (Remove replace driveshaft but don't have to remove/replace the boot), and get all the benefits of a 'new' shaft with both ends getting new boots, and a new/reco driveshaft too?

So I got it fixed.

It costed $330 to replace boot and $390 to replace the shaft... So I had the shaft replaced since I did not know the condition of the CV joint and the new shaft has one year warranty. So just like you said Wiz AU. Job took one mechanic 1.5 hours.

Cheers
