    CV boot leaking

    Hi All,

    My MOT just advised that my O/S/F inner cv boot was leaking grease. They said it could be a bit of a pig to fix so was wondering what the likely cost was? I guess it is mainly just labour.

    I'll call my local Audi garage to get an idea of cost but this isn't something I'd be looking for Audi to do :-)

    The car is a 2001 S3.

    Cheers,
    Adam

    Hi Adam,

    I've just checked my paperwork and I was charged 97.50 to have both the inner and outer NSF CV gaitors changed. That was 57.50 of labour (an hour) and 40 worth of parts.

    HTH,

    the part is about 20 from audi you get boot, grease, clips and new bolt. No more than a ! hr job to do. You do need the right tool to tighten up the clamp.

    Thanks for the updates :-)

    So it doesn't look like too big a job with about an hours labour and inexpensive parts.

    Is it worth having the inner and outer done? I assume there is an inner and outer on the other side? I guess as the MOT said that only the inner was leaking I should only really look at fixing this. Is there any benefit of replacing the others or is it just a case of fixing what looks to be broken and leave the rest.

    The help is really appreciated.

    ah just reread its the inner , I did the outer one on mine but had to do the cv joint eventually. Think it had got contaminated as it split bad
