I'm about to replace my CV boots and have read previous posts on the subject, particularly Assassin's helpful post in Sept. 2007. I am clear that so far as the NEARSIDE is concerned you seperate the inner drive flange and remove the clip from inside the outer CV cup and remove the shaft.
The OFFSIDE however has no inner flange. It has a cup indoard of the inner CV joint and there is no obvious way of seperating this unlike the drive flange on the nearside.
From Lubes post I believe that the OFFSIDE inner CV joint cup has a clip, presumably similar to the outer CV arrangement.
So for the OFFSIDE you pull back the boots and remove the clip from both outer and inner joints and remove the shaft?
Sorry to appear pedantic, but have I got this right? I hate getting into something without understanding it properly first and ending up down a cul de sac!!
