I just noticed my 2005 OB has a ripped cv boot. It is new to me, and still covered under the dealer's 3 mo/ 3k mi warranty. How costly is this repair, and is the dealer going to give me a hard time about covering it? If they won't cover it, should I attempt to replace it myself? Here's some back story on my mechanical inclination: Former Jeep girl, mechanically inclined (i know which end of the wrench to hold ), have access to many tools because I run my family's outdoor power equipment repair business.
