    Default Replacing CV Boots On A Clio

    Hi all.
    I need to replace the outer CV boots on my Renault Clio tomorrow, I know I have the choice of either the universal split type boots (pretty rubbish because they only last about 6 months), or I can get the "stretchy" type.
    Having looked through the Haynes manual I am a bit daunted to have to remove the entire driveshaft to fit new boots.

    Can someone please give me some advice on the easiest way to do this, am I right in thinking that if I get the "stretchy" type, I wont have to remove the driveshaft ?

    I really need to do the job tomorrow because I am back at work on monday and I want to get it done before then, so if there is a nice kind (and possibly hunky) man in my local area who could come and help me do the job I would be VERY grateful LOL

    I am in Havant, Hampshire BTW

    Any help and advice would be really appreciated.
    Regards
    Sally

    I had to buy the split type, I tackled the job today and I thought all was going well, until I drove round the car park by my brothers where I was working on the car, and the bloody things came adrift again at the big end, I think I am gonna get a mechanic to do the job properly, I really don't fancy tackling it myself, I would probably make a complete hash of it.
