Question about 2001 Lincoln Town Car
Noticed oil on left rear disk and think it is the rear axle seal leaking. Checked the brake calliper and appears ok. How is the rear axle removed on the Lincoln towncar? Also, any tips on replacing the seal?
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

It might be the bearings that failed and letting the axle rest on the seal. Its a common problem for these cars. I've replaced mine and it did it again so now im replacing the rear end.
