If I would have cut the boot it would have probably came the apart, I could pull the shaft out of the joint. I had a 92 golf before this and when it died I parted it out and both shafts did this so it would have lasted a while longer golf had 490,000km when the odometer stopped. I just didn't like the noise of the cv joint popping on full lock turns around parking lots. The car only has 120,000 and I am getting ready to sell it so I don't want there to be any issues with it.
