CV Seal Failure?

Thought I should bring this topic across from another forum for safety's sake.

Apparently there are a few reported failures with front shaft seals and or CV joint boots. First sign is a lot of grease inside the front wheels and around the shaft and front suspension. Build dates around Feb/March 2014 look like the most affected. Hopefully not too many, and ours looks fine, but please check and make sure as a failure could have major consequences.
I believe the Jeep number to call and report a problem is 877-426-5337
Stay safe out there!

Re: CV Seal Failure?

Thanks for sharing...I ordered my 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited on March 28, 2014, it hasn't even reached the line yet...Hopefully they are fixing this issue and that's the reason it's taking so long.

Look inside the front wheel rim and around the suspension area where the wheel hub bolts on and where the front drive shaft goes in to the back of the wheel assembly. If there is a problem it should be easy to see - there will be grease thrown around all over the place.

Re: CV Seal Failure?

What's failing exactly? Are the cv boots tearing, are the clamps loose, or breaking?

Not sure at this stage - possibly the clamps.

When was tours manufactured.. What did the dealer say about it (what was the problem that caused the grease) can you post pics of what yours looks like?

Re: CV Seal Failure?

My Summit was built 4/2/14 and it goes in the shop tomorrow to fix a bad CV boot on the front left. Less than 500 miles. I took it in for an alignment check and they found the problem and ordered the new parts...

I pick up mines in a week.. Is there anyway to identify a bad cv boot before I drive off the lot?

Re: CV Seal Failure?

They said the inside of the wheel was covered in grease. They had it cleaned up before I saw it. They said there was no sign of it when they did the initial inspection since it had not gone fast enough to throw out any grease. I suppose you could take it out for a quick trip at a fast speed and then look inside the wheels to see if there is any grease. I don't know how long it takes to show up.
