CV Grease leak...

I noticed the other day that the inside of my white wheel was caked in black grease, and when I took the wheel off it appeared to be radiating outwards from the cv joint at the wheel end.

The grease is all over the rubber gaiter, but after clearing it off there is no sign of a split or hole at all. There is also no sign of it leaking out past the clip (there is no grease on the metal of the hub).

Where is it coming from??

Re: CV Grease leak...

Sometimes you find that the outer cv gaiter clip is just not tight enough, particularly when a cable tie has been used.

If you've only just bought the car it may be that the gaiter has been changed but the mess from the previous one was not cleaned up.
