I purchased a used 2010 Hyundai Sonata GLS in 2016 and I joined the forum to save money on repairs as well as getting reliable information from others who have more experience with this make of automobile. When I bought my car it had 174,000 miles on it and now it has 180,000 miles on the odometer; 6,000 miles added in two years, Looking forward to learning something new.
I noticed that the right outer cv joint boot was leaking grease close to where the boot is over the small end of the outer cv joint. Seems split boots aren't available so I may just replace the entire drive axle instead of taking the outer joint apart to clean it and put on a new boot. If there are split boot available would someone let me know?

Welcome to the forum! 00000732

Split boots are a joke - avoid like the plaque.

I have had some luck installing a new band in a case like yours................ not always. If leak is minor, boot not cracked, and you have good access to remove and replace the band, it may work.

Is it clicking yet?
