You'll need to remove the axle to replace it. If you're unsure the amount of wear on the CV joint that has already occurred you'll want to replace the whole axle anyway.

A mod needs to move this thread to the Transmission & Driveline forum...

Mine was torn, I had my dealership reboot it. Unfortunately, it requires a lot of disassembly to get to the cv boot. I think I wound up paying around $250 to get it done, including parts.

Dammit Nooo Its Childsplay Really, I Will Make A Thread Next Time I Do It Im Sick And Tired Of People Buying Crappy Repros And Getting Ripped Off Because They Are Afraid To Give It A Try.
Remove Springpin From Axel
Disconnect Lower Ball Joint
Remove Axel Nut
Remove Axel
Ignore That I Have Caps Lock On And Cant Spell Axle
Now That The Axel Is Out Of The Car Cut The Straps Off And The Boot Off
Inside The Green Housing There Is A Large C Shaped Spring In A Groove That You Remove, Now You Can Seperate The Cv Joint
With The Cv Joint Seperated There Are 3 Bearings That Only Go On One Way But They Will Fall Off So Keep An Eye On Them Immedieatly And Take Note Of Where And How They Came Off
Clean- I Used Gasoline
Using Snap Ring Pliers Remove The Snap Wring On The End Of The Axel That Secures The Cv Knuckle, Remove Knuckle
Put On Small Side Of New Boot And Band It Back On
Fill Green Housing Halfway With Grease
Put Knuckle Back On And Replace Snap Ring, Put A Little Grease On The Bearings So They Stay Put And Slide The Knuckle Into The Housing, Replace C Spring
Band On Big Side Of Cv Boot And Reinstall In Your Car

Hope This Helps Cause This Was More Than I Had Time For

Does anyone have experience with the bands the come with the Subaru replacement boots? How do you get them nice and tight? I felt like mine could have been tighter when I did my inner boot. The shop manual I have talks about some tool. How do you all do it?

I got a set of pliers and held the long part of the band pulling it as tight as i could. Then I get a screwdriver and used the pliers as a wedge and the screwdriver as a lever. I was able to get the band on nice and tight.
