    Default Inner CV boot?

    My O/S is split... Is this an M.O.T fail?

    Shock absorber removed (ideally for access, but just disconnected from the hub will do)
    Droplink if removing the shock (as said, it's easier for access)
    Track-rod disconnected from hub

    Best way to do it is to start by taking the wheel off, remove it's centre-cap, then remove the hub nut cover. Put the wheel back on and lower the car back to the ground. 32mm Socket and a ruddy great breaker bar will make removing the hub nut easier, especially with the wheel on the deck to stop it moving
    Only loosen the hub nut a half turn, then jack the car and remove the wheel to remove the hub nut completely (haynes advises not to rest the car on a bearing without the CV joint present and tighened which is why you remove the nut after removing the wheel)

    The rest is simple, plenty of rags to clean any grease that has escaped, and a suitable tool to tighten up the new boot clips.

    ^^^
    They don't last very long. As the seem ends up splitting again

    So if you intend on keeping car pay the 5/6 quid extra an but proper boot.

    Be prepared with a soft faced hammer to hit the shaft out of the hub. As it may need some persuasion to get out.

    You'll need pliers similar to these to crimp the new clamps onto boot
