    Pinion Seal

    So it looks like my pinion seal is leaking, pretty bad. I dont know for even how long.

    My uncle said he can replace the seal, if all he has to do is remove the driveshaft and get in the front of it and there's no work involved with the gears.

    Can anyone tell me what's involved?


    I have an extended warranty on my car up to 100,000.. so would this be a covered item? Im going to call the garage Monday.. just trying to get an idea.

    Thanks for the help! =)

    I don't have an answer except that it should be under warranty.

    it would be worth checking to see if it is covered.

    Other than that, it should be as easy as pullin the DS and the yoke off of the rear.

    once its pulled you can remove the seal with a screwdriver and hammer in a new one with a big socket or something.

    just make sure the rotating torque is the same, before and after reassembly to make sure you tightened it correctly and did not overtorque it messing up the crush sleeve.

    another thing to double check is that the spring that basically presses the seal into place does not become damaged or moved otherwise you're going to have to tear apart the entire differential housing and put a new spring in.

    Gotcha.

    Is it Monday yet?

    From what Ive been told, it should be covered on the warranty. I just gotta see if the garage can get me in ASAP. If it's covered on warranty, I dont care what's wrong with it.. but if it's not covered, I just needed to know if we needed to mess with the gears.

    Thanks everyone =)

    Have an appt tomorrow morning at the garage.

    Called my warranty company this morning and they said, without an official diagnosis, the pinion seal and bearings are covered parts.

    Get it diagnosed and see what all is wrong/needs replaced and go from there.

    Thanks for the help =)
