    grease is leaking out. Generally not a problem since it was probably overpacked to begin with.

    If it feels loose or tight, take it back to the person who installed it and have them adjust it. Should be free if it's only a few weeks old. Might cost $15. A poorly adjusted headset can destroy itslef quickly and will be at least $50 to replace.
