Sounds like a failed CV boot. That can dump all kinds of grease on the wheel. You need to get the boot replaced before the CV joint wears out/fails. On my 2003 Passat, the CV boots last around 70k miles, I've replaced the outer CV boots twice now, (car has 176k miles on it now). I don't have the 4-mo though, and you didn't state which axle, so others might know better on the 4-mo.
