Question about Hyundai Motor 1996 Elantra
Hi, i have a 1996 hyundai elantra, i recently replaced a cv axel on the passenger side of the car, i originally replaced the axel cause it had ripped boots and transmission fluid was leaking. now that i have the new cv axel and seal, the leak still remains. i bought the seal at the hyundai dealer because the axel kept leaking. it still leaks a lot of fluid in the same spot, what can i do? thank you
Was the seal put in correctly. there is a certain way that a seal must be installed. generally i like to bake sure that there are no burrs on the shaft that slides through the seal. also the rubber part of the seal is usualy dry and they should have given you seal grease to soften it up before installation. did you use a seal driver to install the seal? trying to just tap it in with just a hammer will usually damage it and then it will leak. double check to make sure it was the right seal it's been known to happen that you go and buy a seal and you get home and it's the wrong one. i'm sure the problem is a a mis installed seal. unfortunately when you remove the seal you will not be able to reuse it due to the damage . you will have to purchase another one. hope this helps. please rate this solution....thanks
