I have been aware of a small leak on my front differential for a while now. It's on the drivers side output shaft, right behind the tripot so my guess is that it's only the seal. More recently it has been spewing out fluid, requiring it to be checked and added at least every week or so. Totally unacceptable to me, and now I have the time to replace it I have a few questions.
Based on the diagram I need the front drive axle inner shaft seal. I have failed to find the part number so that would be great if someone has that.
Other than that how does one remove the Tripot to get to the seal?
Is it pretty strait forward to remove it? Just use a simple seal puller and use a piece of wood and hammer to punch the new on back in?
