Any chance you can/want to crawl under and let us know if the clamp is there just loose or no clamp at all as PhillyAnt's dealer reported.

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

Like others, it is just the two front wheels, not the back wheels.

By the way, anyone know if it is still OK to drive around locally (no long trips) until get to dealer? Also, do they replace the axle and joint assembly because of potential damage to the joint?

Yep, that's how mine looked too. And I can see from the photos already all the grease inside there....

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

Sounds like I need to get to the local dealer ASAP before the parts are on back order!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Word to the wise.

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

BTW, mine is a Laredo E, so it doesn't look related to a certain trim level. Looks like my clamp is there, but it came off somehow. I'm in Md. btw, so not too far from Philly.

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

asdad I've kept both types of those photos for reference and they look like they come from the same model vehicle. I can't see any differences, except for all the grease in one of them
