Brendan, or someone from Boardwalk, I have an issue with my 2006 GTI MKV. I bought the car in Feb. and in July I noticed there was some black grease that was "splattered" on the front driver's side wheel well. it looked like driveaxle grease, so I pulled off my wheel, checked the CV boot, and it looked fine. I figured it was just some "extra" grease that leaked out of the boot, so I cleaned it up and put the wheel back on.
Then about a month later I installed H&R Sport Springs and Koni Sport Struts/Shocks. While doing the install I noticed there was more grease, and I could see that it was comming out of a tiny "hole" where the CV boot and the axle meet. The hole is not like a rip or a tear, rather it looks like it is meant to be there. My concern is that I am still finding "splats" (for lack of a better term) of grease on my front driver's side wheel well. I want to get this checked out/fixed just to be sure it is ok, and if it is not ok, get it fixed before it creates a bigger issue.
My concern is that now that I have installed the H&R Sports Springs and Koni Struts, will the service department give me a tough time in regards to the warranty? Like I said, this was an issue before the new suspension components were installed, and I probably should have had it checked out then, but I thought nothing of it. But now that it is happening again, I want to make sure everything is good.
Any input/advice would be awesome. I just want to know if it would be worth the drive from South San Jose out to Redwood City.
Thanks for your help.
