2003 gmc sierra 2500 hd axial seal leaks


not enough detail for what end the leak is at. Front sounds strange for a pickup unless 4 wheel drive and then if the style is open shaft behind the brake rotor this would require dissemble of a few more things. If from the rear,which is the common repair, this is from a worn axle bearing on the axle shaft,which causes wear to the rear axle seal either located on the shaft before the bearing to the outside. Or the second option can be a axle seal located in the end of the axle housing. when you remove the axle shaft you would be looking at the end of the housing tube and see this seal. On older models ( My younger days ) they would also install one on the inner side of the housing next to the Gear Unit in the center of housing, ( also known as the PIG Unit ).need further info....

How to adjust parking brake on a GMC Sierra 2500 HD Duramax 4wd?


The adjuster is just like on a car with drum brakes. It can be adjusted with the wheels still on the truck, but if yours is out enough that it doesn't work, an inspection is warranted. Axle seal failure is common and will soak the shoes.

Jacked both rear wheels off ground, and while slowly spinning wheel, tighten the star-wheel adjuster until you just hear and feel brake drums rubbing, then loosened slightly.
There's a plastic dust cover about 1/4" X 1" that you remove, and use a drum brake adjuster tool.

The driverside access hole is below axle, easily accessable. To tighten driver side rear parking brake, turn star-wheel adjuster down.


The passengerside access hole is found above axle, and difficult to see. Removed pass side wheel and used an inspection mirror.
To tighten passenger side rear parking brake, turn star-wheel adjuster up.

Good luck and hope this helps. Oh and the other thing to is that if you do smell axle fluid around the wheels and see oil leaking from the drum area. Then you have a axle wheel seal and or bearing gone bad too.
