    Just got to work heard some clicking and squeaking from the front passenger side. I've just had a look and my inner cv boot has split am I going to be ok to drive it 20miles home?

    the less you drive it the better chance of the joint being ok once a new joint is fitted and greased, you will be fine to drive home dude and being an inner theres less movement

    Joints are very cheap anyway.

    I was kinda hoping i could drive home as dont really want to fork out for recovery. Another question is do I get a cv boot based on the shell or the engine?

    The driveshaft is made up of two CV joints, inner and outer. Inner is around £20 to replace. It wont harm the actual shaft itself no.
