Most times the bearing fails first but a seal can fail without the bearing being bad. If you see any flaked metal in the lube behind the seal when you remove it, you can bet the bearing is failing. If you already know the bearing is bad, you know you can't get it out without damaging the seal so it really does not matter if it was good or bad since you will need to replace both..
Since the axle needs to be removed to do either job, most times it's wise to replace both the bearing and seal together so you don't need to do it over in a few weeks.

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,)

Rear axle bearing and seals


On rear axles, the ID tag is on the left side of the housing, and the build date and manufacturer number are stamped on the right axle tube.

Bad rear axle bearing and seal on a 2000 jeep grand


the bearing does not always have to be really bad for the seal to fail. Centrifugal force will throw axle grease outward where it gets on the rotor. That can make it feel like the rotor is out of round. If grease got on the brake pads I'd replace them and perhaps even the rotor. As far as the caliper being frozen, possible....check it out when you have it apart. You can have more than one shoe untied at the same time. Not always, but it can happen.
When replacing the seal make sure you put some grease on the lip before putting the axle back in. by doing that it won't fail from dry running before the diff lube reaches it.

I have an oil leak between the drivers rear axel and the tire. What parts do I need to look into replacing?


You should be ok replacing the outer seal but check for bearing play or fautly outer wheel bearing before you disassemble. If to much lateral movement in axle shaft it will take out your new seal rather quickley.

Check where the seal rides on the axle. If any grove at all get a product called axle saver and install will move location of seal and bearing.

Rear Axle Seal Replacement


remove rear tires, then remove brake calipers and rotors, then remove the 4 nuts (each side) that hold the axle shafts to the axle tube (located around the axle tube behind the backing plate) then using a slide hammer pull the axle shafts out, next using a die grinder and an air hammer get he retainer collar and the bearing off (without damaging the axle shaft) then remove the seal and the outer race which will still be in the housing. next put it all back together, make sure the plate with the studs is still on then slide the seal, bearing, then retainer on (all new parts) and using a press push them all the way back on. then is simple reassembly.

I have a 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee, 2wd and the driver side rear axle seal is leaking; do I have to press the bearing off the axle to replace the seal?


Yes you do.It would be a good idea to replace the bearing and the seal at the same time.Reason being is that 9 times out of 10 the bearing gets damaged in the proccess of being pressed off.
