Can you slide the transmissin away and replace seal


It would be nice to know what year & model.
But still not likely.
To replace the front seal If it is an AUTOMATIC, you must remove a lot of parts.
For front wheel drive the first thing are the wheels. Then drop the lower ball joints,break loose the struts from the tie-rods. In some cases lower control arms, sway bars, stabilizers,exhaust systems
The drive shaft(rear wheel drive) or drive-axles (front wheel drive),
transmission mount
cross-member (rear wheel)
shift rods or cable
hydraulic lines (if automatic)
inspection/access cover at bottom-rear of engine,electrical sensors(if applicable). Then the Bell housing bolts as well as torque converter bolts.
And THEN, because the torque converter holds the majority of your transmission fluid the transmission must be removed with the torque converter attached.Moved far enough away that the converter can be removed safely without spilling the fluid everywhere and where the removal & replacement of the seal can take place where as not to damage it during installation.
Some seals if aren't put it perfectly straight will kink the rubber and jeopardize the whole job.
And the worst thing that can happen after that big job is to have a leak. It must be done right without taking short cuts.
Its a $10.00 part but $300 -$1000 OR MORE to put it in.

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 have a Disco II and the wheel hub bearing went and i'm tryign to change it but i cant seem to get the hub off, can any one help with a step to step guide or something, thanks.


RAVE says the following:
1) Release ABS Sensor harness grommet from inner wing valance and disconnect multi plug.
2) Raise front of vehicle.
3) Remove road wheel.
4) Pull ABS Sensor harness through aperture into wheel arch.
5) Release harness from brackets on inner wing valance, suspension turret and front hub.
6) Release stake from drive shaft nut
7) Remove drive shaft nut with assistance & discard.
8) Remove front brake disk (Remove calliper, pad holder, screw and tap to remove)
9) Remove 4 bolts securing wheel hub to steering knuckle.
10) Release wheel hub from steering knuckle then remove wheel hub and drive shaft assembly from axle. DO NOT REMOVE ABS SENSOR FROM HUB. HUB AND SENSOR ARE SUPPLIED AS AN ASSEMBLY.
11) Position the wheel hub and drive shaft on a press, place supports beneath the wheel studs and press the drive shaft from the wheel hub.
12) Remove drive shaft oil seal from axle casing.

Refit is mostly the reverse, you need to take care to lubricate things in the right places and put loctite on the drive shaft and locate the loom and torque everything right.
