I thought it was the same procedure for both annular and homokinetic
the annular axles have a circlip on the differential end, under the plate that's closest to the diff stub. pop off the plate, remove the clip, slide the joint apart, clean the axle shaft, and slide on new boots. no stretching needed...

now... where can I find OE axle boots? MB does not sell them.
