SOURCE: C V Boots
hi mate i dont no if this is the same case but i have found that when the boots on cv joints are perished or missing that is an indication that the roller bearings inside are worn enough to be replaced the boots are designed to keep bearings lubricated and free of dirt once there is cracks in the boot grease comes out dirt gets in and they wear out very quickly and need to be replaced replacement is easy jack up car put safety stands under bolt off bolts on simple but be shore to replace bolts with new they are usually quite stressed

have you undone the main hub bolt, if yes, there could be two different items holding the cv joint on, one is a small circlip in the joint end, or the other is just like an expanding metal ring again only small. what i had to do to change my one was take the driveshaft out (easier to see whats there) then gently (rubber hammer) hit the CV joint it should then fall off to allow you to change the CV joint. I spent over an hour trying to get the metal ring off, then after taking driveshaft off it was changed and back on in ten mins. Or you can go to a motor factors or similar and get a boot puller, my opinion hammer works better lol

to me this is a simple job, I didn't mean to sound insulting but having never done one i fixed a friends car with a bad CV joint, I found a rebuild kit with new joint ball bearings and grease boots, removing the joints is straight forward, clean the grease out of the joint to see the spring clip that holds it to the axle shaft splined end, to remove the stub end of axle from the steering knuckle undo the axle nut (u need a new one of these) and the unbolt the strut from the knuckle of course the brake caliper and the disk must also be removed, try to push the axle out and swing the knuckle out of the way, you may need to undo the tie rod as well.
