1997 Honda Prelude SI mileage: 95,000. Bob and Ken, Grease is coming out of one of my inner CV Boots but the boot is not torn. Should I just tighten the clamp or install a new clamp or do I need to replace the boot? Thanks for your time.

Do you
have the same problem?

The purpose of a CV boot is to keep dirt out and grease in the CV joint. If grease has escaped out of the CV boot, the joint should be repacked with grease and a new CV boot installed.
