A general rule of thumb for oil seals is the way they are made.
Take a seal and look at it.
The rubber seal should attach to the ring on one side, and be on (rubbing) the shaft on the other.
Usually the side that is rubbing the axle tightly is the side with the pressure, as that side, when pressurized, rubs the shaft more tightly.
I hope I have described this for you .
God bless your efforts.

If your shifter is moving the shifter cable and that is moving the link outside on top of the transaxle, your fluid level is ok and your halfshafts aren't pulled out of the housing. Try to disconnect one of the trans fluid cooler lines, start the car and see if you have a flow of fluid, (put a pan under it to catch fluid) if you have no fluid flow there is a big possibility that the shaft that drives the frt. pump from your torque converter is broken. It is a internal failure and can be repaired by purchasing the parts online, removing the side pan, the valve body and then inspecting the inner splines in the torque converter to make sure they are not stripped, checking the shaft, and making sure that the pump inside the valve body isn't destroyed (that's what usually ties up and breaks the shaft). If this is the problem and you have a qualified shop repair this problem in our area (45840)you would be looking at approx 400.00 parts purchased online as Ford wants in the 600.00 range just for the valve body and you would have approx 300.00-400.00 labor.This is pretty involved but any one with a real good mechanical background and a few special tools could do this although it's quite involved. If it took out the valve body you will want the valve body(comes with pump assy.), shaft, shaft seals, filter and mercon V fluid. If you purchase the valve body online it would be a good idea to purchase a new valve body gasket as most are reconditioned used items online and they reuse the valve body gasket and some are not in good enough condition to use without fear of a problem. We are a full service shop and I am a ASE master tech and have done plenty of these with good results. hope this helps
most of the good rebuild kits have the diagram in it there is not that much in there secter shaft worm gear + some seals and the parts are
not cheap you may be better off with a good used one with fresh seals
I have a 1998 Honda Accord EX. I had the check engine light come on as well and I had the code read by PepBoys. The code was:P1259 or VTEC SYSTEM Malfunction.
I Don't know jack about were to start to fix this problem, so I bit the bullet and took the car to my Honda Dealer. The problem was checked out and was told this.
( REPLACE VTEC VALVE ASSEMBLY)
I had them do the work because I dont know how to do this. So after $204.00 in Labor and $162.29 in parts, for a grand total $366.29, The car was fixed!!!!!!! Run's great and no check engine light on anymore. So to help you out as best I can, here is the numbers that are on my work sheet. I dont know witch numbers represent the part number but this is how it looks on my paper.
There you go! I hope this gives everyone a place to start. maybe get your self a Haynes Repair Manual (#42014 is for the 1998-2002 Honda Accord, all models) and try to do the work your self. Good luck to all of you form Donald M. in SoCal.
BMW uses CV shafts for the rear drive axle, the wheel bearing there is a pressed in factory sealed bearing and not removable other than using a press to remove it, to press it you will need to remove the lower control arm.
The shift shaft has stuck. The modulater shifts threw all gears so if you pull the hose off and there is no fluid leak then the modulater valve may be good. You could try turning the adjusting screw inside the vachumm hose and if that does not work pull the oil pand and lube all the shift solinoids they may have rusted fron condensation. Use a screw driver to get it to move the shift levers and buy some lucas trasmisson oil and run it in there it will soften the seals. Hope this helps.
