    It depends really if the gaiter is spllit (new gaiter) or if the clip has just come off? If its just the clip you could probably just put a cable tie round it and job done, however if the gaiter is split the driveshaft will have to come out which means draining the gearbox oil, dropping the bottom arm and removing the shaft itself, the gaiters themselves are only a tenner tops its just a bit more labour intensive with it being the inner one.
