1999 Audi A6 Quattro Question: CV boot is broken

Should I replace the boot or change the whole axle shaft, I think its a torn cv boot because there is grease everywhere, including on the wheel well. It the front driver side -
Answer 1
If you are doing it yourself replace the whole axle many good quality new/re-manufactured axles available at a reasonable cost. If the boot is split a long time examine the joint for wear and see what your mechanic says. -

REPLACE THE WHOLE AXLE THEY ARE FAIRLY CHEAP AND THEN YOU GET 2 NEW BOOTS AND R/B JOINTS -
