    Can't see it being that expensive to be honest from main dealer

    Nearside Drive shaft oil seal

    I've had non dealer parts before that don't fit correctly and just leak anyway. Get a dealer CV boot mate.

    It won't be anymore than £20 from a dealer, it'll fit well and won't leak, after market oil seals aren't worth the trouble!

    You can do it on axle stands. I did mine. You need a spline tool to undo the bolts and a fair few extensions to reach the bolts where the shaft bolts to the gearbox. You will also need a CV boot too to do up the annoying clips.

    I broke my clip tool on the last CV boot and ended up just going to a garage. It's not the cheapest job labour wise but it's a bloody messy job. If you have all the tools, give it a go.
