Baywindow Balljoint boots?
So I discovered today that after years of being on my van (since 2006) the rubber boots on the ball joints of my bay window have started to perish/split.
The van has only done 11,000 miles in that time, but obviously age has got the better of the rubber.
I know I have seen trackrod end covers in the past for beetles, but as bay balljoints are alot bigger, anyone seen those?
Also what grease is packed in the ball joints? it always looks a greeny colour anytime I have seen it split, is it just CV joint grease?
As my van has done just 300 miles since the last MOT, I thought its not like the joints going to wear out, but I know this is now on the list of things to do, I'd rather not replace the ball joint as thats a hella job and the vw place who did the last ones said what a bugger it was to get the originals out!
Its like being chased by an imploding star...
...One day I'll finish it all.
