Need ideas for a C.V. boot repair. My car.
Anyone out there please chime in. As i said this is my car.
Finished my 30 day inspection. Found a pin hole in the
out board C.V. boot and i mean pin hole. Looks like a fault
in the plastic. This hole is in the outside extreme part of
the boot up against the clamp on the outer pleat, not the
inside pleat. It is losing grease. This is well past warranty. Thinking of patching it with urethane or using the plastic cutting tip of a hand held soldering gun to melt the hole closed. What works for you ? Any other ideas ? Normally i'd just replace the axil but for a pin hole, i might rethink this one. I do know what your thinking. " replace the axil ". I'm thinking someone might have come across this before and fixed it and it stayed fixed. I'll probably replace the axil in spring if it can't
be fixed. they only cost $60.00 new and a boot kit is $30.00. The only problem i'm seeing is burping the boot
during the repair while it is still on the car. O.K. people
i know your good so let's see how good. Any ideas ?
