62 220 SEB axle boot
I'm in the process of repairing all the leaks in the rear axle of a 220SEB (W111).
I've replaced the leaking outer seals and bearings, while I have the passenger side apart I intend on replacing the swing axle boot as well, with a stock boot, not a stapled one.
Anyone ever do this? I'm at the point of removing the axle tube from the diff to move it back far enough to slip a new boot in. Is there an easier way? Other than removing the pivot bolt and sliding the whole tube off?
Any advice would help!...for some reason the factory books I have are missing that entire section ...
