Pinion Seal

Are there any other parts that need to be replaced to repair a leaking pinion seal except the seal and pinion nut?

Re: Pinion Seal

Not that i know of. Make sure you change it soon cuz i didnt and i paid the price of ruining a R&P cuz it ran itself dry one day.

Hope this helps.

Re: Pinion Seal

I had a pinion seal changed at a local garage and I don't think they changed the nut. Make sure you get a factory seal. The first replacement that was put in leaked because it was not an exact duplicate of the original but was called out as the replacement. Got the part from the dealer and 3years now has not leaked. Zukinut is correct about get it done soon. Many people had told me of horror stories from letting it go for a while. Jim

Re: Pinion Seal

I am in the process of installing my SPOA, and I removed the rear axle, setting it on the ground with turny-thing(the thing the U-Joint hooks to, the pinion?) resting on the ground. I now see that fluid has come out onto the ground, although I never had a leak before. Is this normal to have fluid coming from the top of the turny-thing, or is this like a normal gap in the seal or something? I think it's probably in need of a pinion seal replacement, but I don't want to think that.

Re: Pinion Seal

You might consider replacing the flange/collar (I forget exactly what it is called). They can wear as well, although not likely. I changed mine when I did the seal as not to have any problems and so far, so good.
