Hi all, bit confused after buying new pot joints from minispares, http://minispares.co...|Back to search
It comes with the gaitor banded on but also with 2 packets of grease, my question is are they already greased or do I need to take the gaitor off, grease em and then get new bands?

Thanks in advance

Just bought some and the same thing and one box actually had a spare boot and band also
I’m guessing it’s a packing issue at factory 😂

Stick your finger or whatever down the open hole and see if their is any grease in there. I would've thought the grease was for packing the new cv joint. The banding joint is very easily removed and re-fitted without damaging it.

They come pre greased.

 

It sounds like an early " Merry Christmas "

 

Thanks for clarifying Gav.
