Hi Guys 
Well project Audi is back on the road again ... sort of . Thanks for all the help with the CV joints but no pictures were available showing the CV parts breakdown, in so far as the cage, inner and outer configuration. Toms procedure was excellent. I could not get the half shaft out without dropping the tie rod end however. 
    I checked the opposite side CV joint and the boot is ALL CRACKED ! I have ordered a second boot kit and will do that one this week. This time I will pay special attention on how it all goes together, and write a repacking procedure procedure to accompany Toms, removal, replacement procedure.
Bottom line is it is not difficult, just very messy ( especailly if the boot breaks ) . I have a few tips that made my job really easy. 

Stay tuned.
