Question about 1996 Buick Regal Olympic Gold
The transmission was leaking fluid from the output shaft seal on the driver side. I removed the CV shaft and the old seal. When doing this I noticed the male output shaft had lateral movement to it. The side play was about 1.5 mm and I was wondering if this movement is normal? There is very little end play in the shaft. I also removed the pan and there are no metal filings or pieces in it or the fluid. This makes me think the movement is normal but wanted confirmation from some one.
The lateral movement in the output shaft is normal and nothing to worry about.
