You can easily do it yourself provided you have the correct tool to remove the CV bolts.

I highly recommend the Snap-On tool to remove the bolts - Snap-on part number FTSM8E Do not use a allen wrench\allen head socket to remove the bolts!!

Do clean the bolts completely before trying to remove them. You do not want to strip out a bolt.

If you are doing it yourself, it is cheaper to replace the indivivual joints and boots - but it is more time consuming (and messy). You can replace both axles in about 1 hour.

If you take your old joints apart - remember the large flange on the outer race matches up witht he small flange on the innter race.

Es geht nicht darum wie schnell man faehrt, sondern wie gut man schnell fahren kann.
