Replace rear wheel seal


remove the rear axle and the seal will be in the end of the axle housing. Pull it out -fit the new seal in the same way and refit the axle. For seals to leak it is an indication that the bearing is either shot or needs adjustment so check that out as well. Check that the diff bleeder at the top of the diff is clear and that the diff is not over full

Leaking oil and smoking from rear axle.


it seems that your axle shafts and such were just changed and the surfaces were never looked at that ate up those seals in the first place.. the brakes are adjusted too tight and this is also causing heat to buld up in the wheels..this can also burn out the seals and cause failure..gotta take it all apart again and check the bearing seal surfaces for any burrs or reasons for these seals to get cut up.. also when reinstalling these put some gear oil on the seal surfaces so they arent dry-ran on the shafts..this will destroy them also.. clean off the oil on the brake surfaces wit carb cleaner so it will evaporate quickly then reassemble..wheels shouild spin freely with little drag on them while turning by hand..

My rear diff housing is leaking quite badly. is it possible the pinion seal is the problem


yes it is very possible. to confirm where your leak is, look in 4 places. 1) rear diff cover..... 2)pinion seal, where your driveshaft goes into the rear end, or axle seals, just look and see if there is any fluid on the inside of your tires.

I have gear oil coming out of right rear tire area


You have a leaky axle seal. Sometimes this is cause by the vent or breather being plugged. Sometimes they just wear out and another cause is bad bearings. Either way the axle has to be pulled and seal replaced.

Ford 2001 econoline rear axle oil leak at drive shaft seal; how to repair/replace seal ?


if it is leaking from the front of the diff where the drive line goes into it you have to drop the rear of the drive shaft from the diff, if you look at the flange on the diff where the driveshaft bolted to you will see a nut, possibly about 25 to 30mm, you have to remove the nut and remove the flange off the spline of the input shaft of the diff, the nut is really tight and it is difficult to get enough pressure on the nut to "crack it" while the car is on the ground as there is not enough room to get a long bar on the socket to remove the nut. if you happen to get the nut loose and you remove the flange get a big screwdriver and pry the seal out of the diff, check the surface where the seal ran on the input shaft as it may have a groove worn into it, if it has the groove the new seal will still leak, they make a sleeve you can slide over the shaft to give the seal a good surface to run on, we call them a speedy sleeve here but not sure what they may call them there. replace everything in the reverse order that you removed it and don't forget to tension the big nut that holds the flange onto the input shaft

The axle seals are leaking after a diff oil change or thats when it was noticed. are seals a common problem or can it be a bigger problem


They could have already been bad before service and now that the rear diff is full/ maybe overfull they are showing signs of leaking. Check the rear end vent as well, if that is plugged then you will have too much pressure in the rear diff and that will cause seal failure.

Rear diff problem


The only place you did not mention is the pinion seal (at the yoke where the driveshaft connects) Any leak from a differential should be fairly obvious...clean everything off well and drive it, You should see seepage somewhere. Any grease on the wheels or new fluid where you cleaned will tell you where to look. If it is at the pinion seal, If you haven't done this before, don't...you can disturb the adjustment inside the gear case and damage the gears.

Rear Axle Leak


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
