Leaking rear axle

Hey,

So I noticed today that my rear passenger axle seal was leaking oil. Not something I wanna see especially after spending $2,000 on a new trans. Has anyone ever changed this out? or should I take it in? Thanks.

Re: Leaking rear axle

Hey,

Yeah I read that one, but my axle is leaking from the wheel not the pinion. Thanks.

Re: Leaking rear axle

Did the manual say anything about pressing the bearings back on? I don't wanna tear it apart to find out that it needs a press. Thanks again.
