I installed new ball joints tonight. One side went in great. But one of the ball joints, when I was putting it in with the press, the rubber grease boot got pinched and ripped a tiny bit. And some grease came out.
Is there anything I can do or do I have to pop it out and put a new one in?
I'm really bummed about this.
Just for kicks, here is what the new one looks like compared to the old one:
UPDATE: I ended up taking out the ball joint and installing a new one. Put me back an extra $50, but in the end I'd rather do that then do this over again in 6 months. Also for the record, this is a 2000 Ford Taurus. Thanks for all the help!
