Peeked under my '23 F150 Tremor this morning to be greeted by visible grease leakage where the CV axle meets the hub assembly on BOTH driver and passenger side. Not sure how long this has been going on. Also looks like the plastic bezel is broken. TSB? Recall? What's going on here?

That plastic is not broken, it’s made that way, don’t ask me why. I had the same concern a few months back and posted a thread on here. If you google that part you will see it.

Thanks for getting back to me. That's very odd. Is the grease normal? It's not flinging / dripping off the CV shaft, there isn't an excess either so I'm going to assume that's everyone else's experience too.

I don't see anything to be concerned about.
