SOURCE: Seal on front Diff drive shaft

The red coating on the seal is sealer, once it gets hot it softens and keeps fluid from going around the seal barrel, this can really get stuck, a small slide hammer with a screw on the end works well for the really stubborn ones.

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..

SOURCE: The steering works fine but the input shaft seal

Very carefully drill into the seal, after removing the circlip securing the seal in the box, with a 1/16" - 1/8" drill bit until you are through the seal. Then take a wood or sheet metal screw and thread it through the hole til the seal is forced up out of the gearbox. You can do this in the CJ by removing the steering shaft off the input shaft. Use a long (deep) socket to install the new one.

SOURCE: I cant get the bolt loose to remove pulleys from

easy , you must learn to improvise ,use a nice knuckle bar ,preferably snap on then jam this in the suspension with the socket on the nut and turn starter motor .it will come undone with no problem.most important do not forget to put some locktite on thread when re fitting,also make sure you put some white paint marks on the pulleys to the bloc so you know where they time up do not paint teh belt because you WILL change it and paint teh milage on teh timing cover and date for anyone else to know when it was done last

SOURCE: 2001 Jeep Cherokee repair front axle shaft seal.

That job is a ton of labor, considering it's such a small part.
You need to remove both axles (with brakes, rotors and bearing hubs as well) and then remove the diff cover. After that, you remove the carrier (complete with gears) THEN, you can simply pry out and replace the seal.
If you need help with any part of the job, just ask and I'll give you further info. Axle end nut torque is something like 150lbs, not sure what the carrier end cap torque is.

1993 ford f150 front @back seal leak

Two separate fixes, suggest the first as you can do both easier. Drop drive shaft and starter and remove transmission. The front pump assembly will have to be removed from the transmission and the front bushing and seal can be accessed and replaced. inspect the input shaft to the torque converter to make sure there is no wear. That's on the area where the bushing rides. You can do the same with the rear bushing and seal and output shaft. While you are at it remove the pan and replace the filter. A mess at best but it would be highly advisable.

How do i get to, or replace the torque converter on my 2004 chevy Trailblazer?

Your torque converter knob fits inside the back of you crank shaft. When you have your transmission off look in the front of you transmission and you will see an input shaft coming out of the transmission. It has a double set of splines on it as well as a front seal. Be very careful when you slide your tourque cover on the shaft that you don't damage that front seal. When you put your torque converter in make sure it lines up on the shafts. You might have to wiggle and play with it a little so it can sit all the way in. After you done that.then slide then trans on the guide bolts. Bolt it down and test it. Look under the trans and find you torque converter and spin it with a coupld fingers. If it does and everything looks good you are set.

I replaced the seal at the front pump and the torque converter but still leaking inside the bell housing any ideas

Either the input shaft seals are leaking or
A failed throwout bearing/slave cylinder could leak brake fluid into that area, and a leaking crankshaft seal would let engine oil in there.

1997 geo metro torque converter seal replacement how to remove seal and make sure we are removing only the seal.the car is a 1.3 l at.

This seal is located in the front of the transmission. Its called a front input shaft seal. You will need to drop the transmission and remove the torque converter. Once the converter is off if you look at the shaft protruding from the transmission just at the base of the input shaft you will see this seal.
you can rent a seal remover from you parts store, IE Autozone or Oriely's and rent the seal installer tool. This will insure that you do not damage the seal housing or the seal when installing the new one.
One word of advice would be to take the torque converter to a transmission shop and have it checked before reinstalling it. If it has a worn seal face or has a bad set of blades you would be money ahead to replace it while your doing it the first time and not have to pull it back apart 3 months later.

Ford 2001 econoline rear axle oil leak at drive shaft seal; how to repair/replace seal ?

if it is leaking from the front of the diff where the drive line goes into it you have to drop the rear of the drive shaft from the diff, if you look at the flange on the diff where the driveshaft bolted to you will see a nut, possibly about 25 to 30mm, you have to remove the nut and remove the flange off the spline of the input shaft of the diff, the nut is really tight and it is difficult to get enough pressure on the nut to "crack it" while the car is on the ground as there is not enough room to get a long bar on the socket to remove the nut. if you happen to get the nut loose and you remove the flange get a big screwdriver and pry the seal out of the diff, check the surface where the seal ran on the input shaft as it may have a groove worn into it, if it has the groove the new seal will still leak, they make a sleeve you can slide over the shaft to give the seal a good surface to run on, we call them a speedy sleeve here but not sure what they may call them there. replace everything in the reverse order that you removed it and don't forget to tension the big nut that holds the flange onto the input shaft
