CV axle grease leak question
Posted 02 December 2004 - 09:04 AM
I also changed the wheel breaings and ball joints, tie rod ends..( not struts yet).
I drove the car 10 miles and grease is leaking out the same place on the new ( rebuilt) axle....seems too coincidental to me...
What to do ??

Are you sure it's a leak? When I did mine I ended up with a thin radius of grease because I couldn't wipe of think layer of the excess around the boot lip.
Ya its flowing out of there pretty good....

put a new clamp on it or take it out and return it for another.
one of your old axles was not leaking when you pulled it. swap that with the new one that is leaking and see what happens. then go return, exchange or install a new boot clamp on the new one.

The band around the larger side of the boot was not tight enough, so the auto store I bought them from gave me a band.
I tightened that SOB so tight it was a wonder the band didn't break. So far, so good.
