So that means I have the option of just removing the shaft and may be replace the Inner boot and Outer boot at the same time, then at least I'd know its done.

unless you use 2 stretch boots, then there is no need to remove the shaft at all, or the a cv joint, personally i dont think these stretch boots last long, i had one put on in july 2019, january 2021 it needed replacing 🤷‍♂️

I messaged them last night about a inner boot, got a reply back today saying if the joint is round then use one of the outer ones just cut it down, so I can get a inner boot from Euro should be £11.99 but with this special code can get it for £7.19

Same here, had two J & R stretch boots fail on my car within two years and I didn't stretch them to fit them.
