Time Pirate Clamp

If you want to go with a classic one, you'll have to look and be sure the clamp you need is the right size.

Xspecialist_ID Thanks for the info. I just found out all four of mine are seaping. This seems easy enough to handle by myself.

Cyp Not sure if those are designed to be on a rotating part

Cheshire Cynic Query that might help us all:

Would it hurt anything if I replaced the crappy OEM ear-type clamping bands with a worm gear-type screw-tight clamp?

Cyp Great info!

How much did you end up using? I'm about to buy a 14oz container. I'm guessing that is plenty. Mine has been leaking for who knows how long, 3000 miles maybe. Just saw it this last inspection.

rssundar How to : this is from a toyota 4runner forum, same procedure for ours.

rssundar I ended up changing all four inner small 1" clamps which were not tight enough and the grease was seeping out. It was very hard to find the ear type clamps for some reason. No one carried it, all local auto stores : Autozone, NAPA, O'Reilly & pepboys carries only the universal band clamp which needs a special tool. Found "Norther Foreign Autoparts" who had the ear type crimp clamp with multiple raised teeth which worked out great. Couldnt find any high performance CV grease, ended up using generic brand cv grease. Used a syringe with flexible tube to pump the grease into the boot.

gr8dc2b was right about the old grease it poured out like oil. I ended up adding zip ties along with the clamps for added strength.
