    replace all of them, the hat is fucked up, the carbon isnt much better and the boot isnt worth try to save a few bucks,

    For the price, replace them all, little money spent now will save you a lot down the road.

    From your pictures its hard to tell what is exactly failing..Being you have a bellow band on there its likely the seal itself has finally wore out...In a carbon seal situation i would replace it all..Bellow,seal,hat and C-clip....And also at this time i would check/set the alignment...this could also contribute to a leak if your alignment is off...

    Wow, what a nice fella you are. Thats funny, I dont know you either, but when you make a post in a public place like this, expect for anyone to comment, EVEN people you dont know know... i hit send before i was able to finish that second part, and had a tough time editing it on my phone...

    I hope you get your ski fixed up and running nice. Leaks are no fun.
