Hi there good morning to you and sorry for the delayed response

Ok persisted cv gaiter means that the rubber gaiter that protects the cv joints (keeps the grease inside ) has perished (become worn and the rubber is starting to perish /degrad which in time will eventually rip and allow the cv joint Grease to escape which can lead to a dry cv joint which in turn can start to wear and knock

This type of fault is put down as an advisory (keep an eye on it )

Also if the gator splits it is an mot failure so it would be better to get them done in the near future
