    Default Inner CV boot

    Well was going to attempt this but decided its too cold for that ****
    Rang around a few places cheapest dealer has said £95 or £50 back street garage all of them are confused as to why it split as they have said its only normally the outer as that has more turning pressure.

    So what do we think is that a good price £95 or shall i be a tight arse and pray they do a decent job

    Irmscher Insignia CDTI 130

    MOD'S...Irmscher front spoiler, Irmscher mats, Irmscher door pins, Irmscher rear spoiler, Irmscher grille, Irmscher skirt & exhausts,Irmscher Roof spoiler MOD'S TO COME..Side skirts,Wheels

    Bigmac, as I said before I have had to replace an inner one, the rubber perishes with age and weather conditions. I would pay the cheapest price as there isnt much to get wrong!

    I spotted my offside inner CV boot starting to go just before Christmas and I paid £100 for a dealer to do it. This dealer has while-u-wait slots (handy as I have no other transport) and could fit me in quick which was good because I was short of time and was using the car quite a lot at the time. Also, I wanted it replacing before it split and all the grease got out which could potentially ruin the joint.

    I often use a local independent VX specialist but they couldn't fit me in until after the New Year.

    I also know it was a good quality boot that was fitted and I trust that particular dealer to have made a good job of taking everything off and putting it back together again. Worth the money for a quality job done quickly and peace of mind that it was all done right.
