CV BOOTS

2005 Chevrolet Impala

I recently had my cv boots regreased on the advice of a mechanic that I know but then I was told by another that this is wrong that you never do that. Is the boot suppose to be full of grease or not?

It should be greased but not right full to the top of the boot with grease.

I don't know why they would need to be re-greased. I've never heard of that. Unless there is a hole in the boot, there is nowhere for the grease to escape to. It doesn't wear out or need to be changed or topped off. If the boot breaks or tears, then replace the boot and use fresh grease. Most will come with a packet of grease with the correct amount. Methinks you may have gotten duped on this one.
