Some bad news with my car (W211 E55) but lucky I managed to catch it early. After doing some work to the car over the weekend I noticed some grease in the O/S/R area. Further inspection showed a small split in the inner CV boot.

So I thought nothing major... A quick telephone call to Olly's should sort this out. However, once Olly had a chat with the dealers we were surprised that Mercedes do not sell the inner CV boot as a kit (Not available in the EPC).

So I am stuck with a few options:

1 - Universal CV boot.
2 - The parts guy mentioned to Olly that there were 2 CV boot kits but not 100% for my car.
3 - 2nd hand driveshaft.
4 - New driveshaft at approx. £750

The driveshaft is fine, no noises and is solid.

Anyone been in a similar situation where the dealer cannot offer the required CV boot? If so, what course of action did you take?

Universal boot kit, I think. If the OE is not available as a kit, guess what boot will be used for a recon driveshaft?

+1 Ive done this on a few cars and the quality can be good.
 
Update...

Found a part number on the CV Boot over the weekend, A220 357 01 91.

Searched on Google and A000 357 00 91 would be the kit for the inner CV Boot. For the outer CV Boot, if I ever required it, would be A000 357 01 91.
