Drive it home with a ball peen hammer.Just a note here,behind every leaking seal is a worn out bushing,so don't be surprised if replacing the seal doesn't stop the leak.Inside the tailshaft housing is a bushing that engages the driveshaft yoke.It should be a fairly tight fit when the yoke is installed and the driveshaft is bolted up.Grasp the driveshaft and yoke and wiggle it up and down,should be just a couple thousandths play.If excessive play,it needs a new bushing which entales removing the extension housing,driving out old bushing,and driving in new bushing which requires bushing drivers.But the seal,you just drive it in with a hammer.It will want to walk the opposite direction,so you have to press it down with your other hand while hitting it with the hammer.Also make sure the seal has some lube on it where it contacts the yoke.A dry seal will rip and leak.

How to pull tail shaft seal on a mamual transmission in a 1995dodge dakota v6 straight drive. And installation of tail shaft seal . What is the cost to have this done at a shop


Cheaper to do it yourself if it is just rearwheel drive.
Get a cheap seal puller and just tap the new one into place.
4wheel drive you need to move the transfer case to get to it.

Transmission rear seal instalation


remove the drive shaft ( tail shaft) lever out the old seal. put sealer around new seal and fit back in extension housing. Use something that is the same size as the outer edge of the seal and tap it in flush with the edge of the transmission housing. Expect some oil to drain out when the tail shaft and seal is removed

My transmission leaks what should i replace


There are at least 5 places on the Automatic transmission that can over time, and mileage develope fluid leaks. Front converter seal at the front of the transmission,pan gasket in the center,dipstick tube o ring at the center on one side ,speed sensor o ring,and the tail shaft seal at the rear,of the transmission.
Place a flat piece or huge card board,under the engine and transmission,after driving you will see where the fluid,red in color is dripping. Its easier to spot exactly where the leak is comming if you can look under the car,while it is running, The easiest leak is the pan gasket,the dipstick tube, and the speed sensor,then the rear housing tail shaft bushing and seal.
If the front seal(converter seal) is leaking the transmission will need removed,and the seal,and maybe even the front pump bushing Replaced,it would be a good idea to replace the bushing esp if it has high mileage,80,000 or 100,000 miles of use.Change the fluid and the filter,while repareing the leak or leaks.Is a good idea.

Transmission leaking through drive shaft


the rear seal on the tail shaft must have gotten damaged when you removed the shaft. it is available at any good parts store, easy to change. you have to pull the drive shaft back out, then you can use a small hook / prybar to pull the seal out, then tap the new one into place. pay close attention to the install height of the old seal before you remove it, so you know how far to drive the new seal in. good luck!

I need to replace mt tail shaft seal


Unbolt the drive shaft from the rear differential. Slid the driveshaft yoke out of the transmission tale stock. The seal is right there at the end of the transmission. Take a seal remover or a screw driver and remove the seal, it may be tough getting it out and if you damage it, it's not a problem just don't damage the housing. After it's out take a socket or I use an ABS pipe the same size as your seal and place the seal at the seal seat and tap it in lightly and evenly. put the drive shaft back in tail stock and bolt back onto the differential. Good luck

All of the tranamission fluid is coming out in streams.


i did this on my 2000 f150 to replace the tail shaft bushing and seal (automatic transmission). there was nothing inside that housing to fall out other than tranny fluid. if you're going to replace the seal, i'd suggest replacing the bushing too. it's fairly cheap. when you get the tail shaft housing off, just take it to a tranny shop and have then take the old bushing/seal out the press the new ones in, they'll be less likely to damage the new bushing. hope this helps.

Transmission leak


You can have a leak at the pan on the bottom or the front pump seal or the tail shaft seal at the very rear. Most of the time it will be the pan gasket. The constant heat and vibration can cause this to occur. Not a big deal. You can pick up another pan gasket and filter and change them both. The tail seal is an easy fix also. Remove the drive line and pop the seal out and place the new one in. If it is the front pump seal you will have to remove the transmission to gain access for replacement. Good luck.

Rear transmission leak


it sounds like you have a tail shaft seal gone in the transmission it's not a difficult fix if you are handy. Remove the drive shaft and remove the tail stock seal(there are install and removal tools but a hammer and a screwdriver will remove it nicely)then replace with new seal (if you don't have the install tool a 5" long piece of 2x4 and a hammer works BE GENTLE!!!!)and reinstall drive shaft..........these seals are available at your local auto parts store and are usually no more tan $10.00
hope this helps!.........good luck!
