    Yes , was definitely oil that leaked out, and between the 2 mating faces of the CV joint, with no transaxle in site, oil was cleaned up and a few drops appeared latter, now Done about 200 miles since assembly, but will keep an eye on it, if it starts to wear prematurely then one would expect to feel a more aggressive clunk when taking off.. Did you check to see if it was actually oil or watery grease..

    Yes I used the axle,, After opening the outer joint, cant see how what I saw leaking was actually from the CV joint,, as the type of grease is completely different from what I saw leaking out, although a small amount and didn't reoccur once cleaned up. Can only assume that the oil was from somewhere else, or part of an assembly process. When my C/v leaked it was on the workshop floor ,nowhere near the transaxle. Car has done about 300miles now and no sign of any problems..

    It's an easy fix I performed on my own.

    Dragan at Autonation in Mobile replaced the right CV joint, but the kit also has the left so I have those parts too.
    He replaced the axle bolts again too.
    Cost $2400.
