I would recommend that you replace the complete axles instead of just the boots. The boots may be busted/worn and when the get torn/busted they allow sand/dirt inside the CV joint and the bearing inside the CV joint become worn, it all depends on how long the boot has been ripped, its easier and a lot less messy to R/I new axle. For the wheel bearings they need to be pressed in by a hydraulic press. As far as the procedure goes you have to elevate the two front wheels and secure by a lift of jack stands, then take off tires and take off brakes/caliper and caliper chair along with the rotors. You have to remove center nut on axles and remove lower ball joint from knuckle assemble/ hub. Then remove bolts holding knuckle/hub to the struts. Pull knuckle from axles and the hub is out. If you don't have a press and the proper tool you can take the two hubs and the bearings to a machine shop and they will press out and pressing new bearing for you. As for the axles they both can then be pulled/pryed out of the transmission at this time and be fixed or replaced. caution look out for leaking transmission fluid when you pull axles out. The axles are only held by licking rings and can be easily pulled or pryed out. Have something ready to catch fluid. Replace axles in the reverse of taking out. use a piece of wood on the end of axle if there is need to tap it back in with a hammer, listen for a click or snap when its goes back in to transmission. Good Luck

SOURCE: inner cv joints
Autos w/ front wheel drive have 'cv' joints, which stands for 'constant velocity' joints. Power from the engine and transmission goes to the front axles to turn the tires which moves the car down the road. The cv joints are part of the axles. As the car travels over bumps, dips, in the road, up and down hills, and the front wheels turn, the axles must travel up and down with the cars suspension, and must be able to turn with the front wheels as u go around a corner. The constant velocity joint on front wheel drive axles allows variable power and speed ranges while the car moves along the highway. There is a rubber 'boot' that covers the cv joint to protect it from rain, snow, ice, dirt, and contamenants that would get into the moving parts of the cv joint and ruin it. At some point these boots tear or split as they age, allowing grime in, and the cv joint begins to fail. Evidence of this is a clicking noise, as the car turns. This is usually when drivers find out there is a problem, and by this time the cv joint is shot. Usually the entire axle is changed with a new or rebuilt unit. Axles have an inner (at the end of the axle at the transmission), and an outer (at the wheels) cv joint.

REMOVE your whelland tire on the side that you want to make to fix, removed your brake caliper and attach it with a piece of wire to the suspention strut ,remove the part that hold the caliper,remove the bolt or the nut that hold the lower balljoint in your lower suspention arm to your stering kuckle,and separate those two parts with a long pry-bar or a suspention fork and hammer,remove your disc brake,loose the spindle nut from the axle(this big nut is in the center of whell and if you are not working witch an air impact tool loose it right after removing your whell cap before removing the whell this is a high torque on it be sure to tight it correcly when yuo ins tall it)and pull the suspension strut foward you to removed the axle from the stering kuckle take apry-bar put it betwen the transmission and axle and pry it out some trans mission fluid may leak installation is reverse.
