I have a 2000 AWD Chrysler Town and Country. I need to change the output shaft oil seal on the transfer case that goes to the prop shaft and to the back axle. Do I drop the prop shaft down and then...

you are correct on the whole sequence you explanined, just be sure to have a pan to catch the fluid that will come out of the trans when you pull the output shaft out.. as far as how tight to put the nut back on, cant really anwer that doesnt have a crush sleeve or anything in to to worry about messing up, so as long as its tight you will be fine, just dont crank on it excessively.

Output seal leak

Ok Gotcha here we go

  1. Output Shaft has A Brass Bushing in tail shaft housing that supposed to minimize that Play the clearances vary but you R right Shouldn't be a lot of UP-DOWN Play look in to that.
  2. As for the Seal if it got Bent & or the Spring inside it Poped out it Will not Seal
  3. Also If the Yoke Sah A WEAR Channel on it that will Leak Im not sure if they make a SPEEDY SLEVE for yokes or not they do fof HArmonic Ballancers and many other Apps.
  4. Otherwise make sure you have the right seal Look for Part # with a Magnifing Glass the # is on the outside Lip of the seal Strange but TRUE
  5. Again I cant Stress Enough that it HAS TO GO ON STRAIGHT
  6. Also Look for Cracke at the back of thae tail shaft Housing Because if the YOKE is TOO TOO Loose that drive shaft WILL Beat the Seal & Housing into Submision
Other than that It Cant be much more than that . I realy Hope this helps and you can get it takin care of through this, If it Helps PLEASE RATE Me FAIF for this

Rear end seal leak

You must be refering to the side seals. common problem. the actual problem with those rear ends is the air breather, which cloggs up and that's when your seals blow out, because the pressure in the rear end has nowhere to go and so your seals get blown out. I just did a set on Monday. Anywho, you will need some specialty tools for this. You will need to remove both rear brake assemblys (rotors, calipers). Than look on the other side of the backing plate, there you will see 4 big nuts that hold the backing plate on the axle tube (rear end). Remove those 4 nuts and that's where specialty tools become usefull. You will need a slide hammer. You need to attach the slide hammer onto the axle right by the studs. Use factory whel nuts to attach. Remove axle out of the housing with few good slides of the slide hammer. Once the axle is out, you need to remove the snapp ring, then cut the colar off and remove colar, then remove the old bearing and thats where the seal is. Big help doing this job is a pneumatic air hammer, which helps you remove the stuff off the axle shaft and the slide hammer to remove the axles out. You will need 2 seals, 2 bearings and 2 collars. You may also need the plates with the studs, which had the big nuts, that you removed in first steps of this repair. Kind of a job for someone that has been working on cars and has the tools to do it. Good luck. Oh ya, change the breather and the fluid in the rear end.
