62k Miles later.... Bad Seal

So I went in to rotate my tires at my shop today, before I even got the wheels off, I noticed the inside of my left rear wheel was soaked and coated with dust. YAY. Sniff Sniff... not brake fluid!!!!


Hopefully they'll cover under warranty. I see no reason why not. It seems to be a pretty good leak. Hope the oil doesn't ruin tires.

Any GOOD dealership probably will. I know we usually cover stuff thats that close to the warranty date being out.

LoL, I've still got 44k left on my warranty, THAT is not an issue.

They don't, it must be a steering arm.

Alright, just got back from the dealership. They confirmed my suspicions, its a bad wheel seal. They didn't have the parts, so they told me to come back tommorow morning and they'll fix it. The only thing warranty wouldn't cover is turning the brake drum. I told him don't worry about it.

Fixed! got a free rental, camry for the day. They only replaced pads on the affected side, so I'm going to call and ask tommorow, they left the other pads on my floor. :s

I called them today and spoke to two different guys, they claim at 60k miles those shoes don't usually even show signs of wear. I'll go with it, simply because everything feels fine. I may get bored and change the shoes, I know how easy it is, but I really don't care.
