Question about 2003 Ford Focus

1 Answer

After having the passenger side C.V. axle replaced in my 2003 focus the output shaft seal leak. My mechanic has replaced it three (3) times. He is stumped as to why it is still leaking. He replaces it, takes it for a test drive and checks it. It doesn't appear to leak. I drive for a day or two and then it leaks again. Signed; I.M Frustrated.

There is a bearing or bushing that is possibly worn out or there is a groove worn in the axle shaft where the seal rides. Have any other parts been replaced.

My front differential is leaking!


I cannot see it, but I am guessing that you need to replace your axle seal. To do this,you have to pull your CV shaft out. Remove the tire, remove the caliper from the top of the rotor. Using a hammer on the back, remove the rotor. Take off the spindle (axle) nut, separate the axle (CV shaft) from the hub. Replace seal. It should pop right out. Good luck!

2003 Hyundai Tiburon Leaking Transmission Seal


The beaings job is to not only give the axle something to rotate on, but also the keep the axle centered in the hole. When the bearing gets loose, it allows the axle shaft to have an oblong roation, which wears on the seal and allows it to leak. You don't have to run the trans low on fluid to have the output bearings go bad. If you have gone enough miles to wear out a clutch, you have gone enough miles to get some play in the bearings.

CV Axle removal and installation


The axle should be able to be removed by using a flat ended pry bar tool with a dull flat end. Or possibly a very large flat screw driver. Put the pry bar between the axle and transmission. With light pressure, the axle should pop out of the transmission. The axle just snaps into the transmission. There should be no need or cause to damage the seal because the seal is inset into the transmission. Just watch what you are doing. As far as replacing the seal, I do not know. I have not had to do that yet, and I have replaced both sides with new boots more than once.

2005 Yukon Front Diff Axle seals


You don't have to remove the whole diff to change the seals, but you will have to seperate it where the shaft meets the carrier housing. There is a clip holding the passenger axle shaft in place that you have to remove to change the seal. The drivers side axle stub can be removed with a little force as there is a spring clip holding that side in.
