Default Bleeding CV Boots?

So, in doing a bit of maintenance on my car this weekend: brakes, oil, and filter, etc., I notice that there is a large goop spewed on the lower control arm, and drive shaft on the front passenger's side.

I manage to get it on a lift, and take a look at it, and it looks like the outer seal on the inner CV boot has gone, and someone squeezed all the grease out like mashing a tube of toothpaste.

Here's where the question comes in:

I got the 60k warranty, and I have no mods, and it's at 52147. Should the dealer cover this?

I've never had anyone do any work anywhere near the CV boots or tranny.

That should be covered under the 5 year/60k warranty, no questions asked. Take it in.

Called today, the earliest appointment I could get was next Tues, and they said it should be okay for my normal commuting until then.

It's really only a nuisance in the short term and only because it makes a mess. In the long term you will fry that particular axle at a more rapid rate than the others. Glad it's gonna work for ya!
