is it better to replace the entire axle or just the CV boot
My car has 82400 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
Hello there, thank you for asking about your 2008 Volkswagen Jetta. This depends on the condition of the axle. The CV boot protects the joints from outside debris and dirt from getting into the joints. If the boot has been torn for any length of time, there may be a good chance that the joint and axle may already be damaged. I would recommend having an expert from YourMechanic come to your home to inspect and repair the CV boot
