Re: cv boot help!
for something that small i would just try to seal it with an adhesive instead of replacing it. that is just me though.....

Re: cv boot help!
if it real small use silicone.....get to it before grease comes out. rough it up a little with somke abrasive....then a blob of silicone. may hold for a while.

Re: cv boot help!
well i ended up using perematex ultra black silicone last night. droved to work and seems to stop the grease, so lets see how long it holds
