SOURCE: Rear drive shaft seal leaking

Yes, but you will need to mark the yoke position and exact number of turns to remove the nut or you will change ring and pinion gear lash setting when re-installing it. You can use a large pipe wrench to hold the yoke still while tightening, or get a special tool made for that.

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: 2004 ford f150 4x2 4.6 drive shaft has vibration

check the U-joints by grabbing the drive shaft and try to make it move from side to side or top to bottom.It is much easier to do this if the vehicle is in the air and no weight on the axle.If it does move replace that U-joint,but if you are going to replace one then I would do both since you will have the drive shaft out any way.Also check to see if the shaft weight is still there,but I doubt it has came off its pretty rare.

SOURCE: ford 2001 econoline rear axle oil leak at drive

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

SOURCE: front diff.leaks not on cover on seal by the drive

You need to replace the seal. If you are describing the driveshaft coming from the Transfer case, the part would be called a Pinion seal. You can price the repair by using this description and the Repair shop will know what you are talking about.

Sometimes people refer to the smaller shafts between the wheels and the front differential as driveshafts too. They are cv shafts or output shafts.

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.

I have a 2007 f150 4x4 with 5.4 litre Front trans seal is leaking do I have to lift the body to remove top trans bolts?


Nope, but you do have to remove both front and rear drive shafts, exhaust Y pipe, transfer case, all wiring that goes to the trans and transfer case, trans fluid lines, starter, torque converter bolts, trans cross member, then the trans and engine should tilt down far enough for you to get to the upper bolts of the bell housing.

1985 ford f150 fi 302 2 wheel drive, can't identify the rearend housing. Pinion seal is leaking and the shaft is little sloppy in the housing it has 165000 miles on it


There should be a metal tag somewhere under the dirt and grime. It will be held on by one of the housing nuts. You might try to wipe off gunk from pinion seal flange and read a number for that seal.

Rear axle removal on a 2004 f150 fx4


First thing is to make sure you chock the front tires so the truck will not roll. Raise the rear end and set it on jack stands. Put the transmission in Neutral and make sure the parking brake is off. Remove the rear tires and disassemble the brakes on the side with the leaking seal. Place a drain pan under the rear differential and remove the cover. Remove the differential shaft lock bolt. You will need to turn the drive shaft by hand to access the bolt. It will be on the right side off the spider gear housing. Only use a 5/16 or 8mm 6 point box end wrench to remove the bolt. After you remove the bolt reach on the top of the spider gear housing and push the differential lock shaft down to remove it. Make sure the spider gears do not rotate after you remove the shaft. If they do you will need to realign everything to reinstall the lock shaft. Push the axle shaft in enough to remove the "C" clip from the tip of it. The axle will now slide out of the rear end. You can use the tip of the axle shaft to remove the axle seal. If you're changing the bearing as well you will need a slide hammer with axle bearing adapters to remove it. You can use a socket and hammer to install the new bearing and seal. Be careful not to damage the bearing and seal. I recommend packing grease in the back side of the seal. This helps prevent the spring on the seal lip from coming off. Assembly is the reverse. Clean off all the gear oil from the differential cover and the axle. You can use RTV as a gasket if the OEM gasket is damaged. Fill the rear end with new gear oil of the proper type. Refer to your owner's manual.

Rear differential on f150 is leaking,how do i reseal it?(1984 f150 4x4)


If its leaking from the front where the drive-shaft connects, it needs a new pinion seal. If its leaking from the rear cover you need to remove cover and replace the gasket. If its leaking at the wheels you need to replace the axle seals.

Transmission leaking through drive shaft


the rear seal on the tail shaft must have gotten damaged when you removed the shaft. it is available at any good parts store, easy to change. you have to pull the drive shaft back out, then you can use a small hook / prybar to pull the seal out, then tap the new one into place. pay close attention to the install height of the old seal before you remove it, so you know how far to drive the new seal in. good luck!

Can i change front transmission seal on 1997 F 150 without going inside transmission?


If it is the shaft seal on the torque converter, you don't have to open up the case, You will probably have to replace the torque converter, once the seal digs in like that and starts to leak, it cuts a path deep enough to where it can't be fixed. Hope this helps.
