    Drive shaft gaitor

    Does anyone know how har it is to replaces the drive shaft gaitor on a Astra Coupe??

    Is it fairly straight forward??

    Also does anyone have the Part No. for the gaitor (It's the gaitor nearest the wheel)

    Cheers.
    Dave

    P.s. Mine's completley split so I presume I shouldn't really drive the car until it's fixed!?

    Inner or outer CV?

    Either way you need to take off the outer CV (They have circlip buried in the CV grease). Once thats off just pull the new one on.

    It's the outer one that's split.
    What do I have to take apart to get it off? I'm presuming It can't be done with the suspension still in place?
