Unhappy need help!!!!

I have a 2005 c240 4matic. I have 2 issues I could really use some advice with. First, I have a cv boot cracked(front passenger wheel, outer). Local shops will only replace the axle and boot not just the boot. But they cannot do it because it takes a special tool that none of them have. dealership will charge $600 just to replace the boot. My question is, anybody know what special tools are required and do you just need those tools if you are going to replace the entire axle? Would I not need the tools if I were to just replace the boot or does the axle need to be taken off to replace the boot anyways? Second, I want to hook my ipod into my sound system. Is there some type of jack to do this somewhere? Any advice would be greatly appreciated!!!
