You should be ok replacing the outer seal but check for bearing play or fautly outer wheel bearing before you disassemble. If to much lateral movement in axle shaft it will take out your new seal rather quickley.

You need an axle bearing oil seal and replace the bearing while in there.

Its leaking gear oil


Leaks on the rear differentual can usually occur at 3 places the axle housing,or at the axel shaft oil seals.If it were to be the axel housing gasket it would be visible around the housing cover.Also inspect the axel housing slip yoke seal this will also be visible.The next seals you want to check would be the axel shaft seals.In order to get to these seals you will have pull the tires and drums.Once you have them off take a flashlight and look behind the axel end for any oil leaking.Those would be the only places it would leak oil.

Fluid leak on inside of rear driver side tire


More than likely it's either break fluid or axel lube. Axel lube will smell really strong and if it's leaking out it will build up on the breaks and make the rear tire skid under heavy breaking. It is also very thick. Break fluid is thin and has almost no smell.

I HAVE OIL INSIDE THE REAR TIRE. I THINK I BLEW A SEAL. HOW DO I TAKE THE AXEL OUT


No....You can't have oil inside the tire...unless someone put it there. Only air goes inside a tire. If the leak is onto the inside of the wheel (not inside the tire) You will need instructions from a chiltons or haynes manual (too long to write out and it depends on which type brake system you have.) the manual is cheap and will help with lots of other items you may want to do some other time!

The rear Drivers side axel has play.


I would certainly replace the axle with play. But this may not be all. Could be wheel bearing as well.

How to remove rear axel from ford crown victoria tne axel is loose and making noise leaking fluid i think it neds a new seal


do u mean the axle has "play" when u grab the tire and wiggle it up and down?? if it has play, then it propbably needs an AXLE SEAL AND AXLE BEARING.you will have to carefully inspect the axle itself where the bearing rides for any gouging or damage. THIS JOB requires a decent amount of mechanical skill. 1ST you need to remove the rear end COVER and drain out the gear oil into a drain pan.2ND remove the brake caliper and rotor . 3RD spin the" ring and pinion " around until u see a 5/16 bolt that passes thru from the pass. side to the drivers side. u have to remove this bolt. u will need to "hold "the gears from turning in order to break loose this bolt. 4TH remove this bolt and slide out the large metal ""PIN" that 'divides" the rear end in half. NOW CAREFULLY WITHOUT TURNING THE REAR END SPIDER GEARS,PUSH IN THE AXLE TOWARDS THE INSIDE SO U CAN REMOVE THE "C-CLIP" AT INNER END OF AXLE. now u can slide out axle and youll be able to replace seal and if needed axle bearing. let me know if u need more info.
