Drivers side front differential leak

Have an oil leak that started all of a sudden at the shaft end of front drivers side differential 99 tahoe. Can new seal/bearing be repaired on vehicle? I do my own service but have not did this before. I will be checking to see if a vent line is plugged also. Need to see or be told how to take off the oil seal and bearing from the drivers side front shaft at the differential. Schematic would help.

I have a loud clunking noise in front end of my 99 silverado when i engage 4wd

First off where does the clunk come from, the front or center of the vehicle? It could be the transfer case/ front differential oil needs to be checked for leaks or low oil levels, or a universal joint worn out from transfer case to front differential.

Leaking front differential How do I refill for now?

Buy a small amount of the recommended gear oil at an auto parts store.

Park the vehicle on level ground, and look for a fill plug about halfway up the front or back of the housing.

Remove the plug with a wrench, and stick the tip of your finger inside the fill hole. With your finger pretty much straight, you should be able to touch the gear oil.

If not, fill until it starts to run out the hole, then reinstall the plug.

How to change a front axel do i have to lifft it off the ground

it doesnt have to be lifted but is much easier if is. The axle will have to be unbolted from the cv shaft. there are 6 15mm bolts that hold the two together. once these are seperated, tie the cv shaft out of the way and tap on the axle to get it out of the differential housing. It should pop out because there is just a ring on the end of the splines that pops into a groove. this is all on the drivers side. The passenger side is a different story. seperating the cv shaft and the axle is the same but instead of popping the axle out, the housing has to be removed. It is also 15mm bolts 6 0r 7 of them . The 4 wheel drive actuator will also have to be disconnected and there are two nuts on the opposite end from the center section of the diff.

H2 2005 oil leak on drivers side shock area.

im not that familiar with hummers but it sounds like youve found the end of the transmission vent hose or possibly the front differential vent hose and they will have seepage of oil sometimes. however if its a constant oil drippage, then there could be a buildup of pressure inside tranny or rearend. if u follow the hose down to its beginning youll know if its the trans. or differential(rearend). it might be normal to see this fluid,or it could be too much fluid inside trany/rear.

My front differential is leaking!

I cannot see it, but I am guessing that you need to replace your axle seal. To do this,you have to pull your CV shaft out. Remove the tire, remove the caliper from the top of the rotor. Using a hammer on the back, remove the rotor. Take off the spindle (axle) nut, separate the axle (CV shaft) from the hub. Replace seal. It should pop right out. Good luck!

Bad oil leak driver side front fender

There is an adapter for the oil filter with 2 lines coming out of it above the drive shaft from the transfer case to the front differential. The O ring on these will go sometimes causing loss of oil. Also check the 2 lines for leaks and cracks.
