Hello, welcome. My name is***** will do my very best to assist you with your question. I apologize if you have been waiting long for a response.
The seals for the boot on this model is common to leak and cause the issue that you are having, unfortunately to correct this issue all of the boot seals are going to need to be replaced to ultimately correct this issue. I am also a warranty inspector and I have inspected this issue before.
