Those of you who wish to repack the velocity joints of the Bavaria halfshafts should take care to ensure a tight seal of the boots after regreasing. The original clamp does not seem to hold tightly after having once been loosened and regular screw-type clamps are too wide. Try using a VW screw-type clamp N it will hold tightly and not cut the material of the boot. Greasing should be done at around 80,000 miles.
