I might need a new axle, but I wanted to ask before I spend money on it. I've checked and I see grease oozing and it looks like it's coming from the inner cv joint.
My car has 182000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
The CV joint boot is leaking out its lubricant grease. This is most commonly caused by a joint rubber boot is cracked or torn and also the clamps that hold the boots in place can be loose or out of position. Have a mechanic like one from YourMechanic check thegrease leaking from the CV axle. If the axle is found to have a broken boot then the mechanic can replace CV boot or axle.
