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.

SOURCE: oil seal leaking on 1999 gmc half ton 4w/d on front of transfere case do i need special tools or can I drop drive line and replace seal

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.
Good Luck.

SOURCE: want to change a leaky seal on a axle shaft on

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.

SOURCE: oil loss when removing drive shaft seal 55 plate fiesta zetec

You may lose a little, nothing major. Add in the transmission filler tube, where the dipstick goes.

SOURCE: remove the drive shaft from the rear differential?

Pry it off the yoke with a prybar. The shaft has a slip joint in it.

Manual transmission fluid leak from the input for cv drive shaftdriver side


Well, not being familiar with your vehicle I can recommend this. The shaft seal is seated in the transmission where the input shaft enters the transmission.

If the seal part is a round metal ring with a rubber inner seal, then in all likelyhood it is pressed into the transmission.

Now if you think you can pull the seal out after you remove the CV drive shaft - meaning do you have enough room to get up in there to pop it out, then yes you can do it without removing the transmission.

On the other hand if the seal is not accessable to pop out then you will probablly have to remove the transmission which is by no means an easy job. Might want to take a look on youtube and do a search for CV inner shaft seal removal for your particular vehicle or one similar. You will probably find the answer there.

Hope this info helps.

Rear axle seal leak 2001 ford escape xlt . how do i reoair this myself? the leak is at the center section.


First check if the vent cap is plugged, to do that find the T shaped object on the housing spin the top of the tee if it does not move freely then pull it off and clean it. If it's leaking out of the front seal it's the drive line seal is leaking and will have to remove the drive line put Emergency brake on and block wheels and loosen 24MM nut to get to the seal you have to pop the seal off with a screw driver and you have to replace the crush bearing when you do this. However recommend you leave that to a professional or purchase a www.alldatadiy.com susbscription for your car so you know how to set up the bearings if it is needed, you will also have to have a tork wrench to tork the nut down. You will a new Nut for the pintal shaft that comes out of the front of the axle as well the nut is nut reusable once you remove it. Another note you have to have air impact to get the nut off or a torch t heat it just enoungh to get it off but warning fuel tank is right there so if your all thumbs don't mess with it. If it's not leaking from the front seal and is leaking from the back side of the differential then you must drain the oil and replace the gasket on the rear plate, this job is not to difficult but you mus be sue you put silicone on the cover and gasket and put silicone on the bolts as you put them in because if not you will get bolt leakage, these also require a tork wrench. the front seal nut and crush bearing will cost $45.00 the rear will cost $15.00 for the silicone and gasket. And warning if the differtal is leaking from the seal it is quite possible that the bearings will need to be replaced or set up again and this takes experince or it could cost you $750.00 to rebuild the differital. hope this helps.

How do you get to rear window 1991 towncar, it is stuck all the way down


You have to open the door and remove the door panel. There is a screw at the top front and the top rear of the panel. Also there is a screw hidden under the plastic covers on each end of the door pull strap. Push up on the plastic covers and remove the top first with a knife tip.

Slip upholstery tool (any parts store) under door panel and pry out around edges. Pull plastic moisture barrier off of door and there is your window!!!
