Leaking front drive shaft seal Sign In

2003 GMC Duramax 3/4 ton 4 X drive Sierra

There is leaking on the front drive shaft seal. How do I replace the seal, and is this something I can do myself. I do all my mechanic work. Do I need any special tools? Is there a video out instructing how to do this?
Appreciate your help, thanks
Stan

Front drive shaft seal? Do you mean front differential pinion seal or transfer case front output shaft seal?

where shaft comes out of transmission. Main drive shaft goes to the rear end. Hope this helps.
Thanks,

You mean the rear drive shaft then? The transfer case rear output shaft seal?

No problems, just wanted to know which seal you where wanting to know about.


Set the parking brake and chock a tire
Remove the transfer case shield, if there is one.
Mark the position of the driveshaft.
Remove the driveshaft.
Pop the seal out
Press a new seal in

* NOTE: Make sure the hole in the seal is facing down before you press it in. You can use a big socket and dead blow to push it in.

Lube the seal where it rides on the drive shaft with some white grease.

Reinstall the drive shaft in the the same position it was removed.
Check the fluid level in the transfer case.

Smile Thank you very much for all the help & advice you gave me in resolving this problem. I ordered the seal from my local parts house, should be in Monday. I will attempt this than, and understanding as I do, know it will resolve the issue. Thank you for your time as a volunteer. This is the second time this website has helped me. Keep up the outstanding job.
Thanks,
Stan
