Hi, I'm Mike from 1A Auto. We've been selling auto parts for over 30 years.

Okay. So, we notice grease on the ground, when we were checking our parking spot. Obviously, there's a ton of grease in this area. The grease is coming from this CV Boot, which has ripped open. So, it's all flinging out. So, this needs to be repaired.

At this point, you can either replace the Boot, or you can replace the whole axle.

This is the driver's side CV axle Boot. This one is also ripped.

Another indication of why you may have a bad CV axle, you will have some clicking when you go around turns and it may be causing a vibration, as well. We have axles for this vehicle and many others.

So, if you need axles for your vehicle, check 1AAuto.com
