Remove the driveshaft, clean the nut holding the driveshaft coupler to rear end pinion shaft, mark it,now loosen the nut counting the turns so you can put nut back to exact amount of turns, then use a chisel and hammer to remove old seal, clean area good and install new seal and check oil when done, hope this helps.heres a diagram.I have Dodge1500 2005 the rear pinion seal is - 51c4c07.gif

Why does it continue to leak?


Elisa where ? are you working at, EXACTLY?
sounds like it's wheel /axle bearing, is it?
or the pinion bearing????? there are many bearings in any axle.

id bet $100 you didnt just pop in a new rear crankshaft bearing
as other poster guessed.

my guess is the rear axle seal leaked, GL5 lube
and soaked the brakes and all? or the front pinion?
the job requires, all Gear lube, be cleaning off all parts there.
after the job ends, or it will leak RESIDUAL GL5 (imagine a kitchen sponge?)
which axle , the 198RBI or the 226RBA??

this seal., must i guess?
so if this seal leaks, its because the bearing is bad, and beat the seal to deathh.
#1 cause.
when it leaks goes all over.
the rear has discs but has TopHAT, emrg. brake shoes
and those will be wrecked, (soaked in GL5 lube and leak after
and the shoes are wrecked too.) so did you clean all that and replace all that. (i can guess what you did or touched,)

Gear oil leaking from rear of drive shaft


You need to replace the seal for the pinion. ou need to remove the drive shaft off the pinion yoke thene you will find a big nut in the center of the yoke that has to be removed but before you remove the nut check to see if there is any kind of play on the yoke if there is play the pinion bearing will have to be replaced if that is the case your better off having a mechanic do the job. If there is no play remove the nut pull the yoke off replace the seal and reinstall in reverse order.

Rear differential seal


There are two places it can leak from. The rear differential cover or the pinion seal at the front of the differential. Both are easy to replace. The pinion seal will require a little more labor than the differential cover plate. You will have to remove the drive line and then break the pinion nut loose. Use a good impact wrench for this and a six point socket for that step. Then you will need to remove the yoke from the pinion gear. Should be able to tap it off. If not use a puller. Remove the old pinion seal with a flat tip screw driver by driving it through the lip of the old seal and push the screwdriver to the side and it will pop out. Clean the hole for the new seal. install the new seal and the yoke. Tighten the pinion nut. You will need to get access to a manual to check the bearing preload on the pinion nut. Then use a torque wrench to check for correct bearing preload. Re-install the drive line.

My rear diff housing is leaking quite badly. is it possible the pinion seal is the problem


yes it is very possible. to confirm where your leak is, look in 4 places. 1) rear diff cover..... 2)pinion seal, where your driveshaft goes into the rear end, or axle seals, just look and see if there is any fluid on the inside of your tires.

I went to have my rear u joints done and the guy bent the pinion ...I couldn't get him to fix the problem and he refused to finish repairing the truck...I need a quick fix for leaking rear...


wow sorry about that. well there is no grease or quick fix for that, the pinion seal will have to be replaced. with the drive shaft removed you can remove the nut holding the yoke to the pinion gear (rear end) ,pop out the old seal and drive in the new seal, then reinstall the yoke and torque down the nut and reinstall the drive shaft. fluid loss while replacing the seal should be minimal but if you do lose fluid you may need to refill.

Pinion seal leaking


check your rear diff vent if pluged clean it out and clean up the pinion seal.sometimes if the leak is caused by pluged vent and has not been leaking long once vent is clean sometimes the leak will stop.there is not a specific torque amount because it is rotational torque(how hard to turn pinion).there is a crush sleve on the pinion and if torqued too tight or too loose brg preload will be wrong and brg damage could result.mark and remove drive shaft.remove rear wheels,brakes,axles.so when turning pinion you dont have any drag from brakes or axles.mark the position of the yoke on the pinion.remove yoke,replace seal,reinstall yoke be sure to replace pinion nut.tighten nut until it takes the exact same amount of force to turn pinion as before taking original pinion nut off.hope this helps.
