Transaxel leaks transmission fluid

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

    the seal fits without it having to be greased, i have put 3 seals in the car, i never used a seal driver, how does that work? do you think its something more serious? i hear that there's bearings behind the seal. do you think that could be the problem with the leak?

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

How do i fix cv axels on a 2002 hyundai accent


It's not worth it to fix the axel, it is wise to replace the axels
by jacking up the car secure the car with jack stands, then remove the wheels, the big center nut of the axel and the lower bolts on the ball joint, then pry the lower control arm down and pull the hubb aside. Now u could remove the axel easily, if stuck take a hammer and tap it lightly, remove it, replace with the new but make sure both ends r lubed with grease.

Where can I find the fourth motor mount on a 99 grand caravan?


The fourth mount is attached to the automatic transaxel transmission case . It bolts to the top of the case by 3 bolts.. it is on the top surface of the transmission case adjacent to the area that the passenger side CV axel plugs in the transmission case. If you remove the air filter box and connector tubes you can look down towards the bottom back of the transmission and see it clearly.

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.
