It would be in your best interest to replace the entire CV shaft. Replacing the boot is only a temporary fix, because the bearings inside the torn old boot have been exposed to the elements (dirt/water), and will destroy the bearings.

Buy a split boot from the parts store- that way you won't have to remove the shaft. As long as you have the half shaft out, why not replace it since there is probably some damage to it from having a damaged boot?

They make replacements that are split in half, but they aren't generally recommended. What's best (unfortunately) is to remove the shaft and replace it with a stock cv boot. If the cv boot has been open to the elements for a while, damage in the cv joint might have occured.

Don't bother, just replace the entire axle. Once the boot is damaged, the CV joint is contaminated and it will not last very long. It's just an exercise in futility to replace the boot, and the effort is almost as great as if you replaced the entire half-shaft axle.
