My Ride: 325XI

I solved the question of replacing the boots on my wife's 2006 325XI. I removed only one bolt when replacing the boot, the lower swingarm. It took me about an hour and a half per side. That's longer than it needed to be because I pulled the CVJ totally apart and washed it down in solvent, and then repacked. To do it, I made a special tool out of some aluminum barstock.

Not sure if anyone's interested in how I did it, but if you are, drop a line, I'll post the rest of the pictures. And yes, I've heard the elusive click of the c-clip falling into place.
