Question about Cars & Trucks
I ran over plastic and pulled it out I think I messed up a seal it silicone. This is at the end of the drive shaft
The photo is not real good but from what I can see the plastic is between the seal protector and the front of the diff housing. I would spend time carefully unwinding the plastic from around this area. jack up one side of the vehicle and place in neutral to allow the drive shaft to turn to achieve this end . With some luck the seal will not be damaged Make sure that the vehicle is properly chocked and supported before going underneath it . Do not rely on the jack for safety

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.

billbohman: Unless GMC has had some change I am not aware of and that has not been published in service manuals for the repair of these units, the procedures are the same as any seal replacement and require no special tool. There are some universal seal installation tools which I would venture the majority of techs don't have because they substitute other tools in their place most of the time. Most techs will have a special tool designed from removing seals. However, the seal can be removed without it.
Just use a little common sense when removing a seal. Don't damage the casing.

take off the housing cover in the middle of the rear end and to each side there is a retainer clip for each side. Pull it out and that side comes out. I don't think you needed to remove the rear end to do this though.
