Its not to hard to replace. what you need to do is jack the front of the car up, unbolt the cv nut and the wheel hub and pull the cv out off the socket. it is an idea to drain the gearbox oil first. you may have to get a crawbar in to pull the cv out

There are a couple of obvious reasons for this. If the water is getting in when the car is not moving tghen it is almost certainly the boot lid not beeing corectly positioned or that the rubber seal around the boot is damaged / not fitted corectly. Get a thin piece of card and shut it between boot lid and rubber, if it moves freely along there is a gap (you need to rtry this all the way around the boot). Start inbetween the hinges, the go to 1 side. Repeat for all sides. If it is loose look at bolts on hinges to see if they have moved from original position, you will see marks in the paint around the bolt heads if it has moved. Try loosening the bolts and moving the boot lid until the blots are in the original position. Do 1 at a time and do not remove bolts. If there is no sign of the boot lid being moved you need to inspect the rubber to make sure that it is seated correctly and that it has not perished or been cut anywhere. To stop wheel rusting lift out of whhel well and put some timber in the bottom to lift the wheel out of any water. Hope this helps. If there is a gap, loosen bolts on one side wshere the hinge is fastened to car and push downon the top of the hinge, this should tighten that side, then repeat for the other hinge. Note if there arte 3 hinges start on one side and move accross in turn.
what fuses are you wanting? for what item? if you require the location of all the fuse boxes they are as follows.
1, Under the hood ( bonnet)( if your car is left hand drive) it should be on the right hand side, if it is a right hand drive, it will be on the left hand side in a black box.
2, This will also depend on left or right hand drive, if left hand drive there is a fuse box either to the right or left in the foot well area where you put your feet it will be on the side it will be behind an panel .
3,there are 2 fuse boxes in the trunk ( boot) of the car as you look at the car from the rear they should be on the right hand side behind a panel
It's the Constant Velocity Joint (CVJ) on the front offside wheel. Will either need re-greasing (short term fix) or replacing.
Check that the surrounding boot (on inside of wheel) has not split allowing grease to escape
Grinding noise upon turning is normally one of two issues. First, and most often, it is caused by a worn out outer CV joint. If your vehicle has more than 50000 miles on it and the axle shafts have never been replaced, this is what I would suspect first. In addition, CV noise will be louder when turning under power (gas pedal pressed) than when coasting into a turn. The other possibility is a front wheel bearing assembly. These are not as common, but do wear out as well. The wheel bearings will usually make no noise when going straight, but will make noise upon even the slightest side to side turn. CVs on the other hand, usually grind only when going into corners or making left or right turns. If you suspect a CV joint, but don't have high mileage, you could have a torn CV boot that resulted in the grease that lubricates the joint being depleted and causing the noise. You can inspect the out boots visually for tears....grease leaking out usually leaves telltale spatters in the wheel wells also. Replacement of the CV joint can be done, but it is usually cheaper to replace the entire axle shaft as they are serviced as a unit.
Air tools? good heavens. Just get some classic coca cola and wait. She goes loose left handed. But make sure you undo the fixing of the nut first (the way it is secured not to turn loose spontaineously). At some cars there is a split pin, Mazda had those deformable ones which you had to cut partially. (And new ones ready)
