No. Did you run some emery cloth along the race (bearing surface) to make sure it was smooth and clean? If you leave any part of the old seal or debris on the hub surface, damage the seal when installing it, not liberally packing the bearing with grease or the seal did not seat right you can have issues like yours. Make sure the seal is installed flush and if everything looked good as far as the axle and surfaces, pack more grease in the bearing. When you think there is enough grease in it, put more in. Put the grease in the palm of your hand and with the bearing held flat in the other hand repeatedly tap the bearing on your palm until grease comes out both sides. Then put more on it when you seat it.

2001 chevy blazer, no plug on rear axle to check fluid level.


A Chevy rear end or differential is filled through a plug. There is no provision for draining it, however, other than removing the rear cover. If it requires differential oil and the rear cover had not been removed for service, there is obviously a leak in a seal. At the same time, the fluid does not get contaminated and should not need to be changed under normal circumstances.

How2 change rear axle bearings and oil seal 3rd Gen Camaro


You must remove the rear cover of the differential and then remove the bolt that pins in the center pin that the pinion gears are mounted on, then push the axles inward and remove the "C" shaped clips that retain the axles in the gear carrier. The axle bearings are pressed into the axle tubes and you need a special tool to remove them, this goes for the axle grease seal as well. You will need to buy this tool kit on line or locally for more money.. Go to this LINK

How do i change da rear other seal on the rearend of a 1985 chevy silverado


Replacing axle seals requires removing the differential cover,removing the spur gear bolt/shaft,removing the C clip,then sliding the axle out.You will have to press the bearing off of the axle to remove the seal,which usually will break the bearing(might as well replace it anyway on an '85).Removing and replacing the bearing should be done with a shop press.

How do I grease the rear axle of my 01 chevy blazer (2wd) until I can get the leaking seal replaced?


Replace the seal forthwith. leaking grease will wreck your brakes and that is dangerous.

Typically rear ends take 90 weight oil, it goes in through a plug near the center of the rear end, fill to bottom of the hole, with rear end level. You can get a suction gun to **** some fluid and pump into the rear end.

How do you change the rear wheel bearings on a 2004 chevy express 1500 van?


Axle Shaft Bearing & Seal Removal & Installation To Remove:
  1. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  2. Remove the axle shaft.
  3. If replacing only the seal, remove the seal using a suitable seal removal tool.
  4. If replacing the seal and bearing on the 8.6 inch axle, install the slide hammer and adapter behind the bearing and pull out the bearing and seal together.
  5. If replacing the rear axle shaft seal and the bearing on the 9.75 inch axle, install the J 29712 or equivalent bearing puller into the axle housing behind the axle bearing.
  6. Remove the axle shaft seal and the bearing by tightening the nut on the J 29712 bearing puller.
Use a slide hammer, bearing puller and adapter to remove the old axle bearing 88457g81.gif

To Install:
  1. Install the axle shaft bearing using a suitable size driver. Drive the bearing into the housing until the tool bottoms against the tube.
  2. Lubricate the seal lip and install the seal with a suitable seal driver. Make sure the seal is fully seated in the axle tube.
  3. Install the axle shaft.
  4. Fill the rear axle with the correct lubricant.
  5. Lower the vehicle.

I have 1985 cj 7 with an amc 20 rear differential, and i put a new axle kit and seals, but the right seal keeps leaking. what can be causing this problem?


By axle kit, you are referring to new bearing? I'd check the axle seal surface. Sometimes they wear beyond the ability of the seal to do it's job.If it's "borderline", I have had some success by filling the cavity inside the seal with black silicone sealer and letting it dry before installing. That helps keep the seal in contact with the axle.I'd also use some on the outside of the seal housing to prevent seepage there. Always use a small amount of grease on the seal lip when installing. Otherwise the seal can burn before lube reaches it. If that kit was not a bearing, replace the bearing as slight wear can easily open the seal enough to permit a leak. If the axle serves as the inner bearing race make sure that isn't worn either. There used to be an off-set bearing kit available for worn axles but not sure they made them for Jeeps.
There are several reasons an axle can leak. Not being able to see exactly what you are working with, I've pretty much covered all the things I'd look at and tricks I use to make things work even when they sometimes should not.
Hope one of them helps!!!
