Month old camaro, only at my house 1 week

Dealer messes up my stripe, 4 times, still not right. Thing has bubbles in it. Now I wash the car, the drivers side rim is full of grease, along with the brake caliper, lines, and everything else back there. So it gets to go back to the dealer tomorrow. I looked at the axle boot, looks tight, no tears?????

I had the same issue with my driver's side CV shaft on my 3 month old 2011 2SS/RS. Dealer installed OE boot kit under warranty, but I found grease inside the wheel again this weekend. Let me know if you figure out the problem!

Take care,
Mike

It looks to be spun from the boot on the wheel side of the axle. I do not see any problems with the boot, not that there should be with 900 miles on the clock.

Bug your dealer till they fix it right. If they don't then call GM Assistance.

They said they could not figure out how the grease escaped from the boot. They ordered the entire driver side axle today, should be in tomorrow. What problems should I anticipate now?
