CV BOOT JOINT

2006 Vauxhall Meriva

Shakes or Wobbles problem
2006 Vauxhall Meriva Front Wheel Drive Manual

We've had the car in this morning for first MOT, been told the CV Boot joint on the offside needs replacing. When we first got the car (June 09) it needed to go back after a week for severe steering vibration, which led to the garage replacing the brakes as they were well worn (so much for the full service it had on purchase?)

My question is basically could this problem which has been fixed for 2 months now, have led to the problem with the CV Boot Joint?

I want to complain to the garage if so (not that I will get anywhere)

The brake replacement will not affect the CV joint. But they could have damaged the boot (rubber cover) which is covering the joint.
