Question about 2003 Chrysler Town & Country

My rear axel seals are leaking and seem to be loose into the differential in our AWD town and country 2003. Will the seals be the only thing we can replace, and is it a big job? Thanks, Josh

    it is not a big job but u may need to replace the axle bearing and in some cases the axles, it is usually worn bearings and axles that cause the seals to leak.

Replacing axle seals isn't something you could do in a few hours but not impossible. The short and sweet of it is you have to get the axles out of the differential, so you can pop the old seals out and replace them, My time frame estimation would be about 5 hours for the whole job

How hard is it to replace rear end output shaft seals (inner axel seals) 98 town and country? What fluid goes back in?


I assume you mean trans axle seals in front.
You have to remove the drive axles,best done on a lift,not in your driveway.
Trans fluid lubes the Diff,that is in trans.
ATF4 etc,whatever the fluid replaced the original spec, when it was new.

The beaings job is to not only give the axle something to rotate on, but also the keep the axle centered in the hole. When the bearing gets loose, it allows the axle shaft to have an oblong roation, which wears on the seal and allows it to leak. You don't have to run the trans low on fluid to have the output bearings go bad. If you have gone enough miles to wear out a clutch, you have gone enough miles to get some play in the bearings.

Rear differential leaking on 2003 Toyota Matrix AWD


No, not expensive.....no, not a lot of work.

Just make sure you have enough differential fluid to replentish what you drain out. All you need is a seal replacement if it is leaking from the casing....it is in the rear of your car, underneath....in between the tires....looks like a round, metal case. Look to see if it is leaking from around the edges.

Leaking left rear wheel seal.


Loosen differential cover and let oil drain. Remove cover, remove E clip lock from axel. Pull axel out. Remove bearing seal. Install new seal and reinstall axel. Reinstall E clip lock and new cover gasket. Fill with 75-90wt gear oil. Now I know that sound pretty straight forward. But there are some things to remember. The E clip lock can be difficult to remove sometimes. The most important thing is the seal, you will need to make sure it gets seated correctly and not torn when installing axel
