So I noticed grease splattered under the front of my truck today, so I start looking to see where it came from and see the the cv boot is the problem. It’s kind of torn and almost looks like it melted over the clamp in spots. Will get it fixed but wondering how this happened to a truck with 11900 miles on it. Thanks IMG_1231.JPGIMG_1233.JPG

It is often sabotage. I have seen repair shop owners stab the boots with a knife or hold a blow torch to the boots in order to get return business. There used to be an undercover TV show that had hidden cameras on a vehicle and send it in for repairs. The number of shady shops is surprisingly high. 

 

They would damage CV boots, put metal shavings in your differential, put oil on a rag and dab it around under your vehicle on the engine and transmission seals, etc.
