I just wondering why is my cv boot leaking in the same spot twice (RHF)within 30.000 KM, First replaced occured on 12.000 KM and now my car's mileage reach 31.000 KM and I see grease comes out from the cv boot near to boot band upper side.

Any cause of it?
is it normal that we have to replace cv boot every 12.000 KM? Or maybe I have a bad CV Joint that makes cv boot easily to leak?
and now I hear a soft clicking when I turn my vehicle, is it necessary to replace cv joint?

My car is 8th Civic 2.0 Litre.

Hi there,

If you have a clicking when turning, it's time to replace the CV, as for the leak, it may have been overtightened with the band, a stick may have damaged the rubber boot or the boot may have just been weak, regardless, its time to replace the CV anyway.

Hi there,

This is wear in the CV joint, the CV will have to be replaced.

Thank's for your answer Mark :)
There are two parts that need to be looked, first CV Boot itself (rubber) and the other part is CV Joint.
In my case, it's not normal that within 30000Km the cv boot is leak twice, I wondering what is the cause of it.
Is it because of bad CV Joint that makes CV Boot easily leak? Or there is nothing to do with CV joint?

Thx :)

Hi there,

As in my last post I pointed out why the boot may of failed, I feel that it is just a bit of bad luck, with a change over drive shaft you will get a new boot so I feel that this will solve all your problems.
