Steering Shaft CV?

Ok, I was installing my temp sensor the other day and I glanced down at the steering shaft and the CV boot on it is torn. How hard is it to take the shaft off? CV boots are easy, I did them on my old Honda. I just need to know how to take the shaft off and if it's too complicated should I just take it to a shop? Pictures would be great as well. Thanks!

I dont know if there is a replacement boot, but if there is you can remove the shaft by using a 13mm wrench down on the rack and one bolt up by the firewall. it clamps on down by the rack and bolts on at the firewall.
