P0456 = small leak in EVAP system. First check the seal on the fuel cap and if the cap is installed well. When ok, check the rubber EVAP system hoses, which pass the rear axle, they tend to dry rott and start leaking.

I have a 2004 jeep grand cheroke lorado and just had the right rear axel replaced and it is now leaking again... after only two months... is this a reacuring problem?


You should not have to keep doing this repair. I suggest that you return to the mechanic and have him redo the job correctly.

There is more than just the seal, the axle needs to be undamaged at the seal surface, and the bearing has to hold the axle true. Any movement will allow a leak right away.

01 jeep grand cherokee right rear axle, new bearing and seal,still leaking. no wear on axle shaft. no wear or rust any where. 100k mi.


Do it again and be really careful to get the seal in dead square. Put a thin layer of silicone glue around the outside of the seal housing, on some difficult ones that leak, you can put silicone inside the cavity where the tension spring is to give a bit more pressure on the axle (let that dry before using) and, make sure you wipe a bit of grease on the axle where the seal rides so it cant run dry before lube reaches it. One or more of these items have got to work...I've used them all and they all have worked.

Check where the seal rides on the axle. If any grove at all get a product called axle saver and install will move location of seal and bearing.

Rear Axle Seal Replacement


remove rear tires, then remove brake calipers and rotors, then remove the 4 nuts (each side) that hold the axle shafts to the axle tube (located around the axle tube behind the backing plate) then using a slide hammer pull the axle shafts out, next using a die grinder and an air hammer get he retainer collar and the bearing off (without damaging the axle shaft) then remove the seal and the outer race which will still be in the housing. next put it all back together, make sure the plate with the studs is still on then slide the seal, bearing, then retainer on (all new parts) and using a press push them all the way back on. then is simple reassembly.

I have a 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee, 2wd and the driver side rear axle seal is leaking; do I have to press the bearing off the axle to replace the seal?


Yes you do.It would be a good idea to replace the bearing and the seal at the same time.Reason being is that 9 times out of 10 the bearing gets damaged in the proccess of being pressed off.
