The inner and outer boots are different. Just to complicate things, there are different inner boots depending on the type of driveshaft. But if your car (it's an R1128, isn't it?) has its original driveshafts, the part number given in all my parts books for the inner boot kit is 7701450617.
This is an equivalent (I don't know anything about this company, though):

Mister Auto do one with the same dimensions:

I've had good results with the universal boots you can get on eBay (thanks to Pepper for mentioning them on the forum):

right I think I need a new CV joint - probably best and easiest to replace the whole shaft with both joints attached each end.

How do i find out what it the right one for my car? its a Renault 4 TL - 1982 - R1123 - 850cc

Chassis no: 1125B0021572

If it's post-'74, there is only one driveshaft type that will fit both sides and all R4 versions up to 1992, so that's easy.
