If it is the CVJ - I just did both left and right front on my new-to me S4.
Should be the same. It was a PITA but I saved quite a few $$$ by doing it
myself. If you have another car to use while this one is down it may be
Break the axle bolt - use a high power air gun. pop off the wheel. I had
to use a pickle fork to break the rear C/A ball joint free. Yes I did
slighlty tearthe boot - still need to hack a fix. I also used a ball joint
puller to loosen the front lower C/A. Use the airgun to take out the 6
axle/tranny bolts. It took some messing aroung with/jacking up suspension
but it came. There is a local place here in Denver who rebuilds axes in
about 4-5 hrs , $70. I wanted mine totally rebuilt, not just new boot as I
was confident the grease was pretty dirty....
