Rear axle seal joint assembly at Hub

I have a leak in my rear axle seal at the joint where the hub meets the axle. The dealership (classic Chevrolet) is trying to tell me it isn't covered because cv joints aren't covered on the rear. This isn't a cv. It's an axle seal. It is flinging grease all over my inner fender wells. The car has 42k miles. This grease has been cakes on for months given then amount and how dirty it is. Anyone have their dealer cover the same issue? What's the best way to handle this. The service manager hasn't returned my call yet. 1800 Chevy number didn't help but start a claim.

I might have. I was getting grease on the inside of the wheel, the dealership told me it was the boot but was directed by GM to replace the entire half-shaft... so that's what they did. Here's my thread on it:

It's the CV joint boot that is leaking. There only covered under the 3/36 bumper to bumper warranty.

Did not lower my car, stock suspension all the way around. And I had GM good will most of the repair, but they would not cover it under the powertrain. This is covered under the 3yr/36k, but I was up to 42k at the time.
