Question about 1993 Land Rover Range Rover County
I've owned a 93 Classic for about 8 years, 2nd owner-- a short while ago I heard a cracking noise in my left front wheel but never checked it until recently when it began making a loud ***** once in a while. I found the insides of the cv joint torn to bits. I've repaced and repacked the inner parts, the bearings and the oils seals. My question is what keeps the oil seal from slipping down the axel shaft; it just appears to sit on the shaft with nothing to hold it in place?
Thanks for any help!!
I own a series vehicle - and have just replaced both swivels. I found oilseals swimming behind my UJ's too. They shouldn't be there!
There is the main axle case oil seal, that is fixed in the axle (inside the 6 bolt flange) This keeps oil in the diff. Then there is the main swivel oil seal - the big one - that usually leaks. Then there is hub back oil seal - keeping all the hub grease in.
There is really no need for another seal behind the UJ - the axle case one does this.
Yes my seals had been stuck on with hymolar & and were shredded. - Now - not a drip.
