Default Anyone replace cv boots?

Was taking my winter tires off and putting my summer tires on when I noticed grease everywhere. Turns out I've my passenger side cv boot is crack and has spun all the grease out. Any idea on how much work and how much it'll cost to get fixed. Dealer already told me not covered under warranty.

i remember it being what i thought was expensive in my audi a few years ago. also let them replace the joint as it was most likely full of junk that would cause it to wear out.

Thanks for your reply. I've read various sites saying it was cheaper to replace the whole shaft but that was on older trucks. Not sure if that's still the case on the new ones. Dealer quoted me 275 all in for replacement. I've added some pictures.
