Need to get my o/s inner cv boot replaced, took the car to the garage the other day for front ARB replacement (292!) and lo and behold, when they "looked" at it, the cv boot destroyed itself and greased everything, must only happen to mechanics, because it did bugger all when I looked at an hour before. Anyway, after being quoted 60 to repair the damage I decided to do it myself so was wondering which is the best cv boot to use, stretch, zip or glue. If anyone's done this some helpful info would be really appreciated

Thanks for that mintalkin, really useful. Went with the stretchy boot as the guy in the factors said it should go on without removing the tripod, anything for an easy life :) ...then again, if I'd wanted it easy I shouldn't have bought a Ford :rolleyes:
