Grease inside the D/S wheel???

If anyone could possibly assist me I would greatly appreciate it. About 2 weeks ago, I purchased a 2014 JGC Overland Summit Edition. Just recently I noticed some type of a greasy substance inside my drivers side wheel along with some splatter outside (see the pictures below.) I have an appt with a dealer tomorrow, but would like to know if anyone else has ran into an issue similar to mine.

Re: Grease inside the D/S wheel???

Your front axle CV boot let go. There are plenty of posts about it here and there's a TSB and RRT out for it.

Grease In Both Front Wheels... Normal?

Print that TSB and bring it with you. Make sure they replace both axles.

Thank You again everyone. I brought my Jeep into the dealer Wednesday. They had to order the parts, I am just waiting on that next phone call to bring my Jeep back in to get fixed.
