View Full Version : CV boot problem

How does it affect a 97' A8 if the CV boot is bad? I went to the dealer just to get oil change and get check up. He actually used 5W 30 on the A8, which sort of suprised me. Then, he also said my front CV boot is "opened" and need to be replaced otherwise grease and dirt will build up.

I didn't do it as it'd cost me $640. So, I was wondering if I can let that go or if I should do something about it myself.
