    Which rear end seal? At the very back of the rear end, where the cover for it is, or the pinion gear seal where the input shaft for the drive shaft and U-Joint are? Regardless changing the rear end fluid should be done.

You must be refering to the side seals. common problem. the actual problem with those rear ends is the air breather, which cloggs up and that's when your seals blow out, because the pressure in the rear end has nowhere to go and so your seals get blown out. I just did a set on Monday. Anywho, you will need some specialty tools for this. You will need to remove both rear brake assemblys (rotors, calipers). Than look on the other side of the backing plate, there you will see 4 big nuts that hold the backing plate on the axle tube (rear end). Remove those 4 nuts and that's where specialty tools become usefull. You will need a slide hammer. You need to attach the slide hammer onto the axle right by the studs. Use factory whel nuts to attach. Remove axle out of the housing with few good slides of the slide hammer. Once the axle is out, you need to remove the snapp ring, then cut the colar off and remove colar, then remove the old bearing and thats where the seal is. Big help doing this job is a pneumatic air hammer, which helps you remove the stuff off the axle shaft and the slide hammer to remove the axles out. You will need 2 seals, 2 bearings and 2 collars. You may also need the plates with the studs, which had the big nuts, that you removed in first steps of this repair. Kind of a job for someone that has been working on cars and has the tools to do it. Good luck. Oh ya, change the breather and the fluid in the rear end.

I replaced the seal in the rear ended but it is still leaking what's next


Leaking seal could mean the yoke surface that the seal rubs on is rough, or that yoke is moving because of diff wear or misadjustment.

Why does it continue to leak?


Elisa where ? are you working at, EXACTLY?
sounds like it's wheel /axle bearing, is it?
or the pinion bearing????? there are many bearings in any axle.

id bet $100 you didnt just pop in a new rear crankshaft bearing
as other poster guessed.

my guess is the rear axle seal leaked, GL5 lube
and soaked the brakes and all? or the front pinion?
the job requires, all Gear lube, be cleaning off all parts there.
after the job ends, or it will leak RESIDUAL GL5 (imagine a kitchen sponge?)
which axle , the 198RBI or the 226RBA??

this seal., must i guess?
so if this seal leaks, its because the bearing is bad, and beat the seal to deathh.
#1 cause.
when it leaks goes all over.
the rear has discs but has TopHAT, emrg. brake shoes
and those will be wrecked, (soaked in GL5 lube and leak after
and the shoes are wrecked too.) so did you clean all that and replace all that. (i can guess what you did or touched,)

What are some tips on removing and replacing brake lines etc when replacing the rear end on 97 Dodge 1500


Held on by a bolt and two clips. Bend the clips and remove the bolt. Just be prepared to replace them if they are really rusty. If it were mine, I would pull the axles, Replace the diff and pinion and seal. Replace the axle bearings and seals, if the seals were leaking. If not leaking, just replace the seals.

Rear end seal leaks and leaves a trail of oil only when cold


As you are driving, friction makes the seal expand. Time to have a garage replace the rear end seal.

How do I grease the rear axle of my 01 chevy blazer (2wd) until I can get the leaking seal replaced?


Replace the seal forthwith. leaking grease will wreck your brakes and that is dangerous.

Typically rear ends take 90 weight oil, it goes in through a plug near the center of the rear end, fill to bottom of the hole, with rear end level. You can get a suction gun to **** some fluid and pump into the rear end.

2004 Explorer: Rear differential cover is leaking, how do I fix i...


put flat pan under the housing remove the bolts holding the cover usually 10 or 12 (1/2 or #12 metric) bolts? allow the rear end grease to drain... then scape off the old gasket clean with brake cleaner spray install either new gasket or form one with oil resistant silicone put the cover back on , dont refill the fliud for at least 12 hours if using silicone. Also check the front driveshaft rear end yoke seal....they sometimes leak making the illusion of a rear end pan cover leak...if that is leaking you remove the shaft carefully...remove the large yoke retaining nut, replace the press in seal...be sure retaining yoke nut is properly torqued when reinstalling .

1994 buick roadmaster, oil leaking out of right rear axle, checked brake fluid is full, could it be differential oil leak @ end of axle??


If what you see leaking is very oily and does not evaporate, likely it is an axle seal. If there are no leaks in the brake system, that's the only thing back there that can leak. If the axle bearing is going away, it can damage the seal so make sure you look for small shiny metal flakes behind the seal when you replace it or you will be doing the job again very soon. Can't remember...that IS rear wheel drive right?

if it is the seal, you will have to remove the caliper and rotor, remove the differential cover and remove the bolt and pin inside the diff carrier housing. push in the axle and remove the axle clip and pull out the axle use a seal puller or prybar to remove seal reverse the steps to assemble
