SOURCE: engine oil leak

Big job....
You have to drop the motor and tranny out as one unit. It comes out the bottom.
Once you have it out, it's pretty straight forward, seperate the two, change the seal, reassenble, put the power unit (motor and tranny) back into the car.

That's the simplified version of it, but that the overall idea of how you have to do it.
If you need additional information, please let me know.

SOURCE: Rear diff pinion seal replacement, preload torque

just yank it up tight with a bar about 50cms long,their should be collapsable spacer between the taper bearings just tighten it like a professional without overtightening it so and shearing something .handfull of grease in the diff casing to slow/stop any oil leaks top up with ep 90 and away you go,the crownwheel to pinion setting is just a little wiggle woggle ,or you could use a dial gauge but its quicker and easier ,too tight and it whines and too much play and it clunks,nice little wiggle woggle and it will work fine .trust me

SOURCE: rear diff leak on yoke of 2000 explorer

To replace the seal you must pull out the carrier assembly and the pinion gear and install a new crush sleeve if you do it by the book, I have found that if the yoke is removed a new seal installed and the yoke tightened to about 50 foot lbs of torque it is ok, as far as the lube goes there is a plug on the cast case of the diff, it will either be a square drive plug or a large allen plug, fill the diff so you can just touch the fluid with your little finger, don't overfill or the axle seals will start leaking.

SOURCE: 94' toyota 4runner rear differential seal

1st, check to see ifthe vent is plugged on the Differental????? This will make the oil to come out when the oil heats up amd makes gases & pressure. The gases & pressure has to go somewhere!!!! Did the person put a new Crush sleeve, to take the slack out of the pinion, which will makes to pinion move from side to side. Replacing it is no problem. Just time! Gear oil, Seal, Gasket, & Crush sleeve. Place everything on the ground in the order that you take it off. Also check upper & lower bearing & races to see if they need to be replaced. This will also make slack, which will mess up your seal, and star leaking again. Good luck,and take your time.

Could be quite costly. Especially the rear main seal on the engine. You have to take the trans out to even get to it. I would look for something else with less problems to buy.

I replaced the seal in the rear ended but it is still leaking what's next


Leaking seal could mean the yoke surface that the seal rubs on is rough, or that yoke is moving because of diff wear or misadjustment.

Rear diff problem


The only place you did not mention is the pinion seal (at the yoke where the driveshaft connects) Any leak from a differential should be fairly obvious...clean everything off well and drive it, You should see seepage somewhere. Any grease on the wheels or new fluid where you cleaned will tell you where to look. If it is at the pinion seal, If you haven't done this before, don't...you can disturb the adjustment inside the gear case and damage the gears.

Rear drive shaft seal leaking


Yes, but you will need to mark the yoke position and exact number of turns to remove the nut or you will change ring and pinion gear lash setting when re-installing it. You can use a large pipe wrench to hold the yoke still while tightening, or get a special tool made for that.

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.
