Final drive leak?

Postby RJP3579 » Thu Sep 19, 2013 2:11 am

I noticed in the hollow area of my final drive today there was a very thin line of dirt running all the way around near the outside edge of the tunnel through my final drive on the right side. Right by the small black trim that covers that outside seal on the right. Nothing on the outside, just on the inside of the hollow area. Does this sound like it needs that seal replaced? If I remember correctly, you simply remove the plastic trim cover, remove the seal retaining ring then run a screw into the old seal and pull. Install new seal.
