Flex Seal on Front Wheel Drive CV Axes Boots?


Hey good people,

I have been assisting my buddy with his 1994 Toyota Camry LE 2-Door (2.2 Liter Four). He quit using this car as a daily driver back in 2007 when he bought a new 2007 Camry. He still used the 94 to run errands and take it to the park and ride to catch a Van Pool etc....etc......

Fast forward today, his oldest daughter is getting ready for College and it is a local College so, he figured to bring this 1994 Camry back to it's glory days and lots of work has been done such as new Quick Struts, Motor Mounts (All of them), and today we were doing the Radiator Flush and took the time to use a rather unknown product such as Flex Seal (as seen on TV) on the Passenger Front CV outer Boot that just developed a crack at some areas. We noticed it when we were doing the Quick Struts.

Of course, the CV Outer Boot has not yet lost any axle grease and the crack is very narrow so, we said why not?

We also polished the Head Light Plastic Lens.

A few pictures of today's work!

1. It's more like $65 plus tax and assuming DIY.
2. If you take it to any Pro Shop it's more like $150 Each side.
3. Like I posted, we are just curious.

I can only tell you my personal experience with the product
1) wont stop leaks
2) over stated and over rated
3) not good for eltrical insulation as some labels state
4) sensitive to heat and friction
