Q: CV boots leaking

asked by on

The front CV boots are leaking, but I'm not sure if the CV joints need to be replaced.

Torn grease boots on the cv joints are a very common problem as the boots deteriorate over time. The boots themselves can be replaced and new grease added to the joint as long as they have not completely dried out or started making noise. Usually, the entire CV axle is replaced. Have an experienced technician verify the concern and replace the CV axle or CV boot if needed.
