Axle Shaft Seal Replacement in Hamilton

What does the axle shaft seal do?New axle shaft seal Hamilton NZ

The purpose of an axle shaft seal is to securely seal the transmission, differential or transfer case. This prevents lubricating fluid (oil) from leaking as the driveshaft / CV joint rotates.

The axle shaft seal is located next to the inner  CV joint. Depending on the type of vehicle, it connects to either the transmission, differential or transfer case.


Why is it important to get the axle shaft seal replaced?

In the event that the axle shaft seal becomes loose, fluid leaks can occur. This can lead to a lack of lubrication in the transmission, differential or transfer case. The result of this is that there is increased friction, which causes parts to wear at an increased rate.

Promptly replacing the axle shaft seal will keep the surrounding parts in good condition. This means that you can avoid an expensive repair bill and messy oil stains on driveways and parking areas!.


Symptoms of a damaged axle shaft seal:

  • Visible leaks – You may notice puddles of fluid forming underneath your car around the front wheels. This generally points to a transmission fluid or gear oil leak.
  • Visible damage to seal – Upon inspection, you may notice the axle shaft seal is torn or fallen out of place. A damp seal can also point to signs of leakages.
  • Damage to transmission, differential or transfer case – When the axle shaft seal is not repaired, damage can quickly occur in the parts it connects to. This happens due to leaks of fluid (oil), which cause increased friction and wear to occur.
