I tried unsuccessfully to secure the O/S/F outer gaiter on my old Lag, but ended up having to renew the driveshaft as the joint wore out due to lack of grease. My local dealership offered to sort the prob with the metal bands - apparently they have a tool to replace them in situ - but wanted £50 for the privelige !!
With hindsight it would have been the better idea, as the tie wraps just weren't up to the job.
If you want the repair to last longer than a few weeks at a go, then let the garage deal with it.
I think I have CDO. It's like OCD, but with ALL THE LETTERS IN THE RIGHT ORDER
