S1 and S2 inner CV joints of the Fulvia have different circlips. The simple way to remove the inner CV joint after dealing with its circlip is to use a small puller, Andrea

So I was away for a few days and got back to it today.  I couldn't budge the circlip on the inner joint so I wacked the outer joint while held in place in a vice as suggested.  Took a few wacks but I got it off.  I've removed the old boots and cleaned up the shaft.  When I put the boots back in place how much grease do I stuff in the joints behind the boot? 

I had to cut off the clamp on the lower boot.  It didn't have any way of loosening or tightening it.  Just one sold metal band.  Is it OK to use a worm type norma clamp as a replacement?  The norma clamps have a rounded edge so they don't bite into the rubber.  Or is this a no no?

You seem to have had an original boot given the solid band. You need to use specific CV boot bands as there is not any clearance to the bottom swivel joint. Never seen a "jubilee" type worm clip used. I pack the grease so that  it is flush and then  add a bit more. As previously mentioned by others it is important to release trapped air.

Its not the winning but taking part! or is it taking apart?

Thanks.  Picked up the correct CV joint grease and have the proper straps so time to put it all back together.
