Title: CV Boot blow out...
Post by: kraut-sled on September 14, 2005, 09:31:06 AM
Well I had my first CV boot blow out happen.  Not exactly sure the moment it first opened up, but it did not take long to notice the effects.

It is nice to have a shop at your disposal and get things fixed as soon as you notice a problem.  Other wise I would be spending a lot more money on the entire axel and not just a CV boot and grease.

now I just wonder how long before the other side goes.... 8O

I say do the preventive measures, and get to it before it goes...just to be safe, since you have the shop at your disposal.

glad you caught it though

I try to keep the boots clean and silicone them a couple times a year.  I go through a lot of that cheap silicone spray from Wal-Mart.  Hopefully the boots will last longer, likewise the CVs.  This is why I change my own oil, the guys at grease monkey don't do stuff like that.

I am very careful and I try to keep them clean and soft.

I think the cause was a small animal.  I have found what looks like feathers or fur in the grease and in the exhaust tunnel.  There is also some blood under the car.

I think I need to call CSI and see what the DNA says.
