Is a 2002 chevy tracker the same as the 2001 on the rear axle seal replacement?

old post but found in wrong forum...
ok, the axle has 3 seals.
which seal leaks> center or left/right ends.
it's no jeep you posted to jeep forum , i moved you.

in truth all trackers/vitara/sidekick, end seals same
here is a page.

the page even has the free 1996 FSM. link.
to read all steps. and this page above corrects
GM's (GEO) errors.

the real question is, are the inboard axles ends locked in the pig (3rd member gear carriers, or side gears)
answer is NO 1989 to 2004.

the seals are all sold at
you can look there and see lots of seals.
and the part numbers there are real.
and see what years it fits. all on one page.
posted 1000s of times this fact.

what i do is find who makes them then the p/n
then find them local but searching.
there is no other fast way.
go to GM and beg for seals.
they go GEO what?

Rear axle bearing replacment on 2001chevy tracker

You will need to take the axle and the new bearing to a shop that has a press...also you will need a rear wheel speed sensor reluctor ring, as the old one needs to be removed from the axle shaft.
I would recommend replacing any seals on that side while doing the job, to prevent having to go back in later...Good luck, i hope this helps.

I have 2001 Chev Tracker, Oil started to run out of the Right side break drum. Removed Drum and foud oil all over the breaks. Tried to remove the Axel by removing the four nuts off of the backing plate,...

The axle requires a slide-hammer to remove. And usually the axle bearing is destroyed in the process. A new axle bearing needs to be pressed on by a machine shop, and then the reinstall of the axle requires the correct application of concussive force. This is NOT for the faint of heart, or the ill-equipped!

Are you sure the brake cylinder on the affected side isn't leaking? It would spray oil everywhere, and is MUCH easier to fix. You would tell this as the brake pedal would move easier than it should.

How to remove rear axle to replace axle seal?

First the wheel has to be removed. Then it's a good idea to remove the braking hardware(Shoes, springs etc.) for these will have to bre cleaned or replaced later in the process. There will be 4 or 5 hex head bolts circling the axle, remove these and at the same time place a small tray underneath to catch any small amount of fluid which may drip out. Next pry the axle out with your hands or a couple of matching prybars at 3:00 and 9:00 equally. The seal may be removed using a long, large flat head screwdriver blade. Use extra care not to scratch(score) the seal housing. The new seal should be installed using a seal and bushing installer kit, however, it may be done by using the old seal flipped iover and taped at a rotational method. Make sure after all is put together to measure the fluid level. This is done by placing your pinky finger into the filler hole . If there is enough fluid to coat your fingers firest knuckle than you're all set. Thank you, Dana

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.

if it is the seal, you will have to remove the caliper and rotor, remove the differential cover and remove the bolt and pin inside the diff carrier housing. push in the axle and remove the axle clip and pull out the axle use a seal puller or prybar to remove seal reverse the steps to assemble
