SOURCE: Left rear axle seal is leaking differental oil.

ok then here is the procedure  1 take off the axle nut
2 on the lower control arm you will find a large nut and bolt i belive the nut is a 21mm and the bolt side is an 18mm. this bolt is the one at the knuckle near the brakes. remove it
3 you will need to pull the knuckle out of the way or a helper to pull the knuckle out of the way so you can slip the axle out of the knuckle.( its a tight fit but there is room to slip it out.)
4 use a pry bar to pop the axle free of the diff. hosing its held in by a spring clip make sure the clip comes out with the axle if it gets stuck inside you will have to fish it out.
5 use a pry bar or screwdriver to pry seal out of housing then use a flat object that contacts the entire rim of the new seal so it can evenly be installed with out getting smashed and tap it in with a hammer. ( a good trick here is to use some grease and pack it into the new seal where the spring is this will prevent the spring from being shocked out of the seal during instalation . the spring keeps tension on the rubber in the seal so it stays tight to the shaft it is sealing.)
6 then revers the above steps. also make sure you are using the right gear lube it will most likely be 75w-140 but make sure you check your owners manual will tell you if it doesnt say on the diff cover. you can cause a lot of damage if you put in the wrong thing. and make sure  you feel the axle spring clip snap into place.
as a note there are two types of axle seals that are used on these so if the new seal looks different than the old seal then the folliowing will be important to you.the seals on these have been redesigned so if you axle has what looks like a cup or dust cover pressed onto the shaft where it goes into the diff the new style does not use this and it will prevent the axle form going in all the way so the spring clip will not lock in and you will have a leak. so you will have to remove it and install the axle without it.

Leaking water

Yeah ford would just replace it , You need a company that installs sun roofs they may well have just the seals for this sun roof , I would google sunroof installers in you area and see if there is one local who will fix this . I would say this is also not helping with you other problems .

I have an F150 LLariat w/ sunroof. When it Rains there is a lot of water dripping from under the glove box on the right side. It will fill the channel along the passanger rocker panel.

Most likely the sunroof is leaking. You can permenently seal it or replace the seal. The last roof seal I replaced costs $175.00 for the part.

Sunroof leaks water, how do i fix it?

It's normal for a sunroof to leak a small amount of water past the glass. Although the glass is mounted to brackets, the glass sits in the roof with a weatherstip sealing it. When the vehicle is driven, movement is allowed and rain water will seep past. The channel below the glass has drains in the corners that allow water to flow down a hose and to the lower body. These hoses are routed through the pillars that hold the roof. If one of these draines are plugged the water will back up and overflow out of the channel and into the passenger compartment. Open your sunroof and first check the seal around the glass for nicks, cuts, tears, gaps and correct if neccesary. Then look in the front corners of the roof opening. You will see drain holes. Be sure they are clean. Unfortuantely you can't easily see the rears and the headliner may need to be removed. Sometimes the hoses are plugged with dirt/tar from underneath. Good luck.

Leaking sunroof

Clear caulking will seal the sun roof shut, and done right will keep it from leaking, but to do it right it will need a new seal, which is best left to a pro. These are difficult to do and easy to break the glass which is expensive to replace.

Leaking sunroof

5replace the seals or load with a heavy lube....You may be able to silicone the seal if there is a rip but do it and leave the roof open so it adhearse and swells so when you clos yer roof it makes a good seal.....but inspect the seals good crawl out of it and look if you have to but feel it and inspect it well...Let me know what you find

firstly there should be drain holes in the corners, open sunroof and look in all the corners, if they are blocked then any water that gets thru cant run away, thus coming into your car. if you can figure out how to take the glass right out, it has been known to take some thin electrical wire and run it round behind the seal, making the seal a little wider...
