No there is nothing that needs to be aligned, you can simply put the new one in, just make sure you tighten the shaft bolt down as tight as it will go.

How to fix seal leak on front differential. Mechanic said cant get the drive shafts out so cant change seals


What year, make and model is it? It is unlikely that the drive shafts do not come off, perhaps there is a circlip or retaining bolt he hasn't spotted.

The diff is part of the trans axle automatic transmission assembly and is not a separate part that can be removed.

2003 Jeep Liberty is leaking yellowish fluid. Could it be fluid from the 4 wheel drive? I had it serviced last year.


If the yellow fluid is bright yellow, and has a foul smell when you smell it up close (put a little on your finger and see), then it is most likely gear oil in the differential.

The only yellow fluid at the center rear of the Jeep is the gear oil in the differential. It is probably due to a leaking seal at the pinion seal, (at the front of the differential where the drive shaft connects) which would then run down the differential housing and drip off the bottom. I described the smell before because gear oil is quite foul smelling so if you wet your fingers on the fluid and smell it you might get more idea that it is gear oil.

If it is the pinion seal the drip should be in the middle of your rear tyres.

Have a look at the pictures in this link that illustrate where I think the Leak is coming from...

1999 Subaru Forester has developed a shake when accelerating, esp. between 20-30 mph. Wheel bearings replaced - didn't help. Tires checked, balanced, etc. - didn't help. Front end allignment - didn't help....


Auto or 5-speed?
Subarus have CV axles in front and back. And a drive shaft from the center differential of the transmission to the back differential.

Yes, it could be the drive shaft or axle. If you turn the car hard left or right do you hear any noises - usually a 'clicking' sound? This is likely a CV axle in front.

Check the fluid in the transmission (Automatic) (info is in the Owner's Manual) to make sure it's full and/or gear oil in the front differential.

If it's an Automatic transmission, the fluid may need changed - NOT FLUSHED - if it has more than 30K miles since last changed.

Just wondering is the drive shaft is located in or around the differential- my jeep was smoking with a foul odor coming from underneath the vehicle and I was told by 2 mechanics that I need to replace the...


I own an 02' Jeep Liberty. It is either the differential, or the drive shaft.
Is it the front or rear driveshaft? Does the Jeep drive? If the driveshaft
was bad, it wouldn't move, so I'm assuming he's screwing you,since driveshafts don't smoke.LOL. If your front or rearend lube has come all
out or very low, you could get smoking from the diffs,especially if the fluid hit's your exhaust. look under the jeep, to see if any fluid is leaking
from the front or rear driveshafts?good luck.
