In order to properly replace a C.V. boot you need to disassemble that side of the wheel assembly and drop the C.V. axle. The new boot(from parts house or Dealership goes right back on. You will need to clean the area really well and get all grit out because this is what damages the axle itself. Repack the boot with C.V. grease and you're on your way. It can be a tough job sometimes so I recommend investing in a repair manual(like Chilton) to ease the process. The parts houses sell what I call cheater boots now and basically it is a shorter term solution. They install by basically wrapping around the old boot area and then screw together. I installed one for a customer once at her request and it lasted about 10,000 miles. When she had more money she had me put the permanent one on. I will say this about these, if you can't do the permanent repair right away for whatever reason it sure can save a C.V. axle from being destroyed - temporarily. Good Luck
