Inner CV - a $1 Sears prydriver to pry the circlip off
Outside  CV - mallet to bang off joint

(is this right? Anyone.)

It seems if one has to replace an inner boot ... after disassembling 
the inner CVJ the outter boot can be replaced without taking apart 
the outter CVJ.  Just cut off old boot and slide new outer boot from 
the inner end of axle shaft .... I'm going to try this but don't know if 
it can be done.
