Default Replacing split CV boot

I noticed while having the tracking checked on my Fiesta the outter? (nearest to the hub) CV boot is split is on the drivers side.

Is this an easy job to replace?

Awesome, thanks.

Will give it a go on the weekend, do you need a special tool to refit the new cv boot clips?

Is it worth buying the CV boot from Ford or are motorfactor ones fine?

you could fit universal stretch c.v boots if you have to cone tool to slide them over the drive shaft. It saves time dismantling the c.v joints. I have 2 to fit on my car this weekend.
