I had an outer CV boot split on a Civic. Thick grease every where. If you

catch it sooner then later, you can get away with just changing the boot



To change the outer boot on a Civic, you had drain transmission, and then

once the shaft is off, remove the inner CV boot to get the new one back on

first.  Cost of 2 new boots 20$. Cost of re-manufactured half shaft was $40.



I replaced both shafts at the same time.

Yes, it does.  A CV joint is rather like a U-Joint in that it has bearings (in this case they are ball bearings in lieu of roller bearings) and they need to lubricated.  They are packed with grease at the factory.  You seal has failed, as you noted, and not only are you loosing the grease but water can now enter the joint and cause it to rust and fail.  You would do well to address this issue more sooner than later.

Wedge List / Propshaft/Driveshaft Question
« Last post by William Smith on July 31, 2018, 09:36:58 PM »
So, I noticed an unusual type ofB  grease or oil leak in the area of the underside of the shifter lever on my '80 TR7.B  The grease/oil had been flung in a circle over the underside of the car. IB  put the car up in the air and upon initial examination, I thought it was coming from some leakage around where the gear selector shaft enters the gearbox.

However, the grease/oil that had been flung by the driveshaft appeared to be thicker than the synchromesh fluid that I'm running in the gearbox.B  Upon further inspection,B  IB  found a tear in the black rubber diaphragm through which the drive shaft enters the front CV joint "can".B  My question: does that CV joint "can" contain a grease or heavy oil which could have leaked out through the tear in the diaphragm causing my circular mess?

Thanks all.  I think i will swap out a spare front cover i have, remeasure and

reassemble.  Hopefully it is properly machined...



The original part was a manufacturing embarassment.
