ok where the cv axle goes into the transmission theres grease all around th opening and all over the cv axle the metal part on the axle closer to the tranny. is this anything i should have looked into by a pro or is it something i can do myself by getting a new axle.

I havent done an axle on our cars yet, but it might be a pian to do. Only cuz everything will be rusted stuck. I dont know if you gotta undo the ball joint or not.

its not clicking or anything the boot looks fine theres just grease and crap all over the transmission and the metal thing opposite of the boot.

Is the metal band still holding on? Does it feel like there is grease in there?

everything is still on there im gonna get up in ther this weekend and give it a good once over. the passenger side is fine clean and nothing on there.

nothing except road ****.
if the grease has somehow leaked out of the boot do i have to get a new axle or can i just add more grease somehow.
