    Default Split CV boot with MOT due on friday

    Noticed my O/S inner CV boot was split and I've been told it's an MOT fail so need to get it replaced. I brought new boots for inner and outer joints for both sides from Euro car parts. Seeing as the gearbox needs to be drained to replace the boot I thought you might as well do all 4 at the same time, then you know that's one problem gone for a while.

    I've been unable to find someone to help me replace the boots so had to go into a garage yesterday and ask them to do it with my parts, was quoted just over £200, does this sound like a good price, how long would it take to replace all 4 boots.

    no need to drain the box when replacing the boots , the o/s shaft is the 2 piece one anyway , the inner joint should knock off the shaft & leave the rest of it in place .
