Just spent this weekend replacing the CV joint boot, which is basically the same steps as replacing the joint. - Before you begin, borrow (normally free) a CV Joint Puller/or transaxle puller from a local auto store. It should be the kind with the 5 lb sliding weight. Also, get a clamping tool, if the new boot with clamps are the type that need the clamping tool (about $5). You can save a lot of time by getting a 36mm socket for the wheel nut.
Well, that about sums up the job of diagnosing, maintaining and replacing CV joints. I hope you find it to be an enjoyable task. It will increase your standing in your local circle of VW friends immensely!
