Re: Grease leaking out of my CV Joint boot.. recommendations for repair? (glxdriver)
quote:[HR][/HR]The easiest way would be to buy the replacement unit and just replace the whole thing. But it will be the most expensive.
The next best thing is the the ONE PEICE replacement boot, it is a lot more work but will work well.
Do not use the split boots. They are the easietst to install, but they dont hold real well and will start to leak again. If you are selling the car it would be the way to go, but if you are keeping it, go with one of the other fixes.
Go with your best time vs. money decision.[HR][/HR]
I mostly agree here except the selling part. If you have lots of time then go with the one-piece part. But by putting a cheap part on a car as such the next owner will eventually have to deal with it. It makes you look bad and may give them a bad taste regarding VW's http://****************.com/smile/emthdown.gif Do the job right and you do it once, making everybody happy. I'm learning this with my house, if only the PO repaired things right the first time by using quality parts and quality labor (cheap-ass bastard)
