You might be able to replace the boot only, but in all the years I have been working on cars ( close to 40) I have yet to see a boot repair that works. The only way to "fix" a bad boot is to replace it with a one piece boot and that means you have to remove the axle and dissasemble the CV joint. I just replace the whole CV axle.
The CV-boot has C-clips inside the boot they must be released befor the boot will come apart. It would be very hard to tell you how to do it on this page. You really need a repair manual on how to fix CV-joints.
