Re: Clicking noise from NS front wheel
I don't know what's been used on the boot (remember, it's already been opened-up), you may well have to look and measure first. Or, simply open, pack with grease and temporarily use a cable tie until you get a clip of the correct size (which would then be a priority, if the existing one cannot be re-used).
This is really just a process of elimination to see IF it's the CV joint, and IF it can be repaired, so I wouldn't go throwing lots of money at it, at this point.
Regarding the grease itself, I'd use something like this; http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2-x-MOLY-G...item4ab9049092
A decent, independent car accessory shop would keep you right and save you on postage costs.
This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
