LEFT HAND OUTBOARD CV BOOT REPLACEMENT

2006 Volkswagen GLI

Drive Train Axles Bearings problem
2006 Volkswagen GLI 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 52000 miles

found a cut in my outboard cv boot removed all neesary items to get access to the cv joint on the drivers side. I have the boot removed and can not take the outer housing off ( which in the new kit has a clip that needs to be removed. I was wondering how do you removed the clip or take the outer housing off to put the new cv boot on. Thanks
