    I’m replacing my leaky driver side CV axle seal today and tried to clean it up as best as I can but it looks like some rust had made its way through the edges of where the seal sat. Should I try to clean this rust off and if so what’s the best way to do it? I was thinking maybe a steel wire brush but I don’t wanna damage the axle housing.
