CV Joint Boot Guards (see Phill Lander's site for photos) They guards protect the front CV boots from getting torn by rocks kicked up by the tires. This does happen, viagra buy viagra with the result that the joint then has to be removed so a new boot can be fitted, view a nasty job. Phill provides the following part numbers on his web Site, diagnosis along with installation instructions.
- Right CV Boot Guard: 251 407 406

Water Pump/Altenator Belt Guards VW also makes deflectors to protect the belt for the alternator and water pump. These prevent gravel kicked up by the wheels from getting into the pulleys with the resulting destruction of the belt, something that does happen. This can lead to the frying of your engine if you do not catch it soon enough. We're talking tens-of-seconds here! There are two separate guards/deflectors, both of which protect the vital waterpump/alternator belt. Photos of of installed Guards are here (power steering) and here (water pump/alternator). See also Derek Drew's article on CV boot protectors and belt guards. The part numbers, again thanks to Phill Lander, are as follows:
- Water Pump Belt Stone Deflector: 025 199 913
- Alternator Pulley Stone Deflector: 025 199 915
