Consider replacing the axle with a rebuilt unit. When the boot is torn, contaminants enter the joint and quickly destroy it.

The boot has a life and so does the joint; once the boot tears ,the joint is not far behind. Why do the job twice?
The CV joint is the part inside the boot.
I very much doubt you can buy that on it's own. It usually comes only with a balljoint.
The rubber boot that covers the CV joint is what tears. When the boot tears grease is expelled and water and dirt gets in.
Check the "boot" for cracks and see if there is any loss of grease. The boot is the rubber housing around the CV Joint. If the boot is damaged, grease has escaped and the CV Joint is making noise, the CV joint must be replaced.
A cracked boot itself won't cause a CV joint to make noise. However, a cracked boot WILL cause the grease to be slung out and allow dirt to enter the CV joint. And a contaminated CV joint that is starved for lubricant WILL eventually start to make noise.

the outer CV joint is a non-serviceable and non-removable item on the escort and ZX2. If it is bad it will need replacement. to remove the boot and replace it there are two ways to do it. (1) cut the boot off and replace it with a speed boot (a boot split down the length which then gets glued together) (2) either cut the boot off or slide it off. This method will take more work than the speed boot. This will require removal of the complete half axle. You will first have to separate the inner joint and remove that boot as well. Once the joint is separated, the tripod bearing will have to be removed. Once all this is done the new boot for the outer CV joint can be installed. If you do this method, you should also install a new inner boot as well.

3 yes no decisions: 1st Test drive, Does the joint click and rattle when accelerating in a turn. Yes a joint or multiple joints are bad. 2nd Visual external inspection: If the boot keeping the grease in and dirt out is split or damaged and you are unsure how long its been that way, change the joint. If you are sure that it has been a short time and it passes the first test. Replace the boot. 3rd Manipulate the joint by hand, if it has movement you can feel it is suspect, if clunks or makes noise when you shake the shaft, it needs replacing.
You don't. Boot priority is specifed by the BIOS, not Windows 2000.
it shouldn't be. replace the joint or the axle.
The shaft should have a clip on it and you just have to give it a quick yank to pull it out of the CV joint then you can slip the boot on.
Either the loss of lubrication due to a boot being ripped or torn, or just plain old wear and tear on the CV itself. Starving the CV joint of lubrication will make the joint loosen a lot faster than it would if you just put many miles on it. To make sure you don't starve the CV joint of lubrication you can inspect the boot regularly, such as everytime you change your oil.
If the boot is torn, then more than likely the CV joint needs replacing. It at the very least needs to be inspected. You can replace the boot with a repair kit, but I would have the joint inspected.
No but some have an escape route for excess grease so not to rupture the boot.
