2002 Volkswagen Passat Question: Left front axle
it's best to repalce the axel shaft assy for around $189 or just to replace the boot only you would pay around $161 since the price difference it not much it's always good to replace the complete assy. - The Shop at 160
You need to find another shop. It should cost less to replace the axle than the boot. You can buy a reman axle from Napa auto parts for $70 exchange. That's if it is an automatic, two wheel drive. The Napa auto parts part number is 95-2187. The phone number to call is 704-821-6246. That is a reman axle which is fine. You can spend a little more for new if you want. You need to go find another shop that will give you a better price. Not having more info on the car it should be no more than one and a half hours labor. - backyard tech

Our technicians recommend having the constant velocity (CV) boots and CV joints inspected at each service. Servicing torn CV boots early can prevent the need to replace the CV half shaft or CV joint.
