SOURCE: input shaft seal leaking after replace seal

Firstly, make sure the seal you fitted is the correct one, sounds silly but I have been given the wrong seals by parts people. It pays to check. Next, if you have fitted the seal correctly, and made sure that the seal is in flush with the housing, then it may be that the shaft is worn and may have a groove in it which was caused by the old seal. Pull the shaft out again and check for this groove in the shaft. If it does have the groove, you will need to find and purchase a steel sleeve which is fitted over the worn section of the shaft and ensures a nice clean and tight surface for the new seal to run on, thus stopping the leak.. Here in australia these sleeves are called "speedy Sleeves" and are available from any bearing shop and auto parts stores. The sleeve has a removable step on it which is used to tap the sleeve onto the shaft ( with a small hammer) and is then removed by twisting it sideways with pliers or sidecutters. The sleeve has a scored edge to help with this. Once you have removed the step, carefully clean up the edge with very fine grade rubbing paper ( wet and dry or fine emery cloth) with Oil applied to it to remove any sharp edges BEFORE you refit the shaft into the gearbox. This ensures that the new sleeve does not damage the seal. Re-assemble everything and test drive. As long as the seal is correct and fitted correctly and the sleeve is fitted correctly this will stop the leak. Have fun..

The window on drivers side has leak in the centre of the rubber, also the window doesnt look flush,

sounds like someone tried to pry your window and punctured the seal. You can purchase the seal on Ebay and replace this seal yourself. You can also repair the crooked window yourself also but you will have to remove the door panel to do this. Just the other day I was watching a video on Youtube about this exact seal - Removal and Replacement.

Fitting new door seal

Door seals are in a formed groove/slot.Grab the one end and pull the seal out.Putting the new one in is harder.Use a light lubricant,like vasoline,that will just dissipate after a while,and gently pull the new seal into the groove/slot.I've had to do this myself.

Door leaking

Probably a ripped or torn door seal. Could also be a bad seal on the outside of the window. In either case replace the seal.

Hi, problem with AU falcon Door locks, when remote is pushed locks cycle three to four times but remain open, and horn beeps, have disconected all locks individually but no change.

The horn souds to alert you to the fact that the vehicle has not locked correctly, this is normal. The cycling of the door locks is a common fault. Inside the door actuators there are two switches which tell the control unit when the doors are locked or unlocked. If you issue a lock command (from the remote) and the control unit does not receive the correct signal from these switches, the control unit unlocks the doors and sounds the horn. Disconnecting the door actuators has the same effect as this prevents the door lock sensors from sending the correct signal to the controller. So, the cause is usually one of the door locks has been contaminated with water and the contacts have corroded. You cannot disassemble the door actuators to clean the contacts, you can only replace the entire actuator. Water (usually from rain) gets past the window seal, drips onto the lock mechanism and then runs down the actuator rod and into the actuator. It then sits in the bottom of the actuator damaging the contacts. Now, its usually the drivers door actuator as this is the door and window used the most but, If any of the windows have been left open or partially open, water will get into the actuators causing this problem. If the vehicle has been involved with the floods, the same can happen. Replacement is quite simple but make sure you get the rivets which hold the actuators inside the door as using nuts and bolts is very difficult and may foul on the window as it winds down. Remove the door fittings and the inner door trim, cut the seal in a manner which allows you to reseat it and wind the window all the way up. Disconnect the wiring harness to the lock and drill out the rivets. carefully remove the linkage rod and dont break the clip. Fit the new actuator to the linkage and connect the wiring again. Hold onto the actuator and cycle the door locks holding the courtesy lamp switch in. If all is well, the doors should now lock correctly. If all is well, refit the actuator with the new rivets and refit the door seal and trim etc.. Done..

Leak in rear lifthatch water leaking into rear storage area. It appears to be getting in under the rubber gasket door seal

Hi this is quite a common problem, you have a couple of options you can either go out and buy a new door rubber seal or if it one of those seals where you can get you hand in between two parts of the seal then what you can do is get some thick string and run this in the middle of the seal doing this will pack the seal out a bit and then when the door is shut this will make a lot better seal and it will then stop the water getting in.

let me know if you need further assistance ok

ps the rubber seal isnt to expensive to buy but even a new rubber may still have the same problem as its more to do with the way the door is fitted and it seems it dont push the seal hard enough to prevent water getting in so i have found packing it out with some thick string or twine will push the seal out more and will seal it properly when you shut the door to

plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

The door seal on drivers side door has a lot of wind noise. I would like to adjust the door to lessen the air noise, but i do not know how to adjust the door.

the seal is leaking and needs to be replaced,you could try rubbing it down with a lite coat of vasalene,vasaleng swells the seal...if your door is adjustable it is done on the door stop where your door latches to, looks like a u shaped peice with 2 usually star head bolts some u can loosen and move one way or the other.

Why does the floor on the passenger side get wet after it rains?

They had this problem in the Neon line as well. Check your door seals to make sure they are sealing correctly. You can do this with a piece of chaulk by rubbing the chaulk along the seal till you have a good layer on teh seal, make sure the area where the seal contacts the door frame is clean and then shut the door. After you open teh door you should see an outline of where the seal made contact. If that is solid you have a good door seal. If the doors are good you will need to start looking for areas where the window seal may have not sealed good and under teh carpet for the drain plug that should be present both inside the vehicle and outside the vehicle.

2007 floor wet on passenger side only when it rains

May be faulty seal around defrost vents. If it happens when not raining, then I would suggest A/C condensor, but if it only happens when raining, then you have a bad door seal or seal around defrost venting that is leaking into interior and you may need to silicone the leak or replace the seal.
