I am attaching your photo with arrows....looks like the small line is attached at three points....not sure if min is attached to the metal part with the single arrow. Will check or go back to dealership and have them do it to make them look bad so they tighten up a bit on the details. LOL
I haven't looked under mine, but from your picture and if Jeep does it similar to Ford, the larger line is the brake line, and the smaller is the brake sensor line. Someone please correct me if that's not right.

U R correct, specifically the skinny one is the ABS brake sensor line.

Re: Grease In Both Front Wheels... Normal?

Hi all,
After reading this thread, I checked my New GC, which was a factory build and took delivery of on 4/9. Sure enough, all of the exact issues those who have posted on here are experiencing. My build date was 3/14. I'm in the DC area. I wrote my salesman and provided the attached photos. Very thankful for this thread since I'm not a gearhead and it would never have occurred to me to look for this issue. I'll update after I have heard back from the dealership. I will also call the number provided to report to Chrysler.

Wow - yours was built on 3/14 and mine a week later on 3/21. Just an FYI, it is a safety issue as the grease gets into the brakes.

Be sure to read all the entries in this thread.

It took a day for Jeep to authorize, then a day for parts, then a day for repairs. So 3-5 days probably. But get it in soon both for safety reasons AND there could be a run on the parts!!!

Until people start bringing their Jeeps in for other issues or oil changes, it'll be 6,000 before this problem is detected in some of these Jeeps.

Best wishes.

Thanks, I read the rest of the posts. Luckily, the dealership is a qtr mile from my work, so hoping to get it in this evening. (Also looks like I screwed up uploading my pics, oh well).

When the service tech sees it, he will be like "what the heck". LOL

Re: Grease In Both Front Wheels... Normal?

Picking up my new Overland from Koons tomorrow (hopefully)... It's a 3/14 build date (I believe the MDH is 0329XX). Reading through this thread is giving me nightmares... I'm nervous I'm going to experience this issue and have grease all over my wheels on my drive from DC back to NJ. Anything I can do to see if mine has it before I drove off the lot? I'm definitely going to check for grease in the wheels, but I'm thinking a brand new one isn't going to have the grease all over them yet even if it does have the CV boot issue. If I do spot the problem, it sounds like there isn't much they'd be able to do to fix it on the spot (such as tighten the clamps) since it sounds like replacement is the solution?

Re: Grease In Both Front Wheels... Normal?

Yes print this out and have them confirm all front CV boot clamps r secure, esp the outer boot outer ring clamps... Will take 5 mins on the lift

Re: Grease In Both Front Wheels... Normal?

I'd call ahead and alert them to the issue.....have them check and fix BEFORE you go....

Re: Grease In Both Front Wheels... Normal?

Picked up my Overland 4 days ago. New build straight from the factory (built 4/7).

And.... you guessed it, grease everywhere on driver's side front tire.

I can't believe I have to take a 4 day old car into the dealer.

It's PhillyAnt's fault! If only he'd kept his trap shut

Yep - that is exactly the same thing. Just a bit of grease on the outside (kind of deceptive) then look inside the rim and grease is caked in there. Get in there ASAP before they run out of the front short axles!!!
