Went to get in the car the other day and the tyre was flat. So I pumped it up and drove down to the tyre place, punctured right on the edge of the tyre, so it was scrap. Whilst I was there I looked around the other tyres and the rear one was on it's last legs, so I had 2 new Pirreli's fitted. Not a bad price at £59 each fitted. But I wanted to swap them so the new tyres are on the back.

So I set about changing them and when I took the front wheel off, I noticed grease on the suspension. Further investigation and the CV gator was off due to the clip snapping. I put some more grease in (although by the looks of it, there hadn't much come out anyway) and secured it back on with a cable tie.

Now, should I be worried about the cable tie and get the right thing or should I keep an eye on the tie but it should be ok?

Cable ties work if they are the right gauge and tight. If you use too small a gauge they stretch too much or break, they can expand and allow the boot to slip off the hub when you turn. Yours may be ok if its kept under scrutiny but metal is best in my view, the clips that need squeezing together to close work fine for me.
