Axle Shaft Seal Replacement Service

What is the Axle Shaft Seal all about?

The front axle shaft seal is what prevents the fluid in your differential from leaking out around the axle. The differential delivers engine power from your transmission to the wheels, and allows your wheels to move. Accordingly, it needs to be lubricated, as does your axle. The front axle shaft seal mounts into the axle shaft tube or the differential case depending on design, and prevents the internal fluid from leaking out. If the front axle shaft seal becomes compromised, transmission fluid will leak and possibly damage the transmission or differential.

Keep in mind:

  • It is important to fix an axle shaft seal as soon as possible as the fluid can damage brake components.
  • Fluid leaks can cause problems not just with the adjacent component – they can compound and affect other components in your car.

How it's done:

  • The vehicle is put on jack stands and the four tires are removed. The front and rear brake calipers and brackets are removed to access the axle.

  • The front axle is removed to access the defective front axle seal. The seal is removed and replaced with a new seal.

  • The rear axle is removed to access the defective rear axle seal. The seal is removed and replaced with a new seal and a new differential gasket. The axles are then refilled.

  • The tires are reinstalled and the vehicle is removed from jack stands. Brakes are pumped up and set for operation.

  • The vehicle is road tested to ensure proper operation of all the components that have been worked on.

Our recommendation:

The front axle shaft seal does not require maintenance, though it can fail unexpectedly. If there is a problem with your front axle shaft seal or any other part of your drive train, have it diagnosed and corrected by one of our expert mechanics.

What common symptoms indicate you may need to replace the Axle Shaft Seal?

  • Fluid leaks noticed near the front wheels
  • The transmission or differential fluid is low

How important is this service?

You should never neglect any type of fluid leak. If the front axle shaft seal is compromised, you could end up leaking transmission fluid, and at some point your transmission will seize up. You’ll incur costly repairs or have to replace the transmission entirely. A small leak can be monitored closely and managed, but if you’re losing a lot of fluid, get the front axle shaft seal replaced as soon as possible.

Chris was very patient even though it is difficult to get in and out of my apartment complex. He completed the repairs in a timely manner even though there was a major thunderstorm going on and took time to educate me about my tires. Thank you Chris!

Nissan Titan - Axle Shaft Seal Replacement (Rear) - Houston, Texas
Ben was very prompt and efficient. He is a good mechanic. He did correct the original problem that was not repaired by previous mechanic, However, please note that my slip and ABS lights are still on. Ben said they would go off after driving it for about 20 miles. I have driven that and more and the lights are still on. This was not an issue before. Please let me know if someone will come out to fix this problem. Thanks, Arthur Jason (713-703-3274)

Dodge Ram 1500 - Axle Shaft Seal Replacement (Rear) - El Cajon, California
Fadi was honest and motivated right from the start. I took my Dodge Ram to a shop and they said that it needed a rear axel seal and a new radiator. I’m no mechanic but I decided to shop around. I set up an appointment and he was on time and ready to go. He inspected my truck to make sure it needed what I was told from the shop. It needed the axel seal for sure. He swap it and it was ready to go. Next step was the radiator. He inspected it and told me it was fine. I turn it on ran a little and checked out myself. Turns out I didn’t need a radiator. The shop was just trying to get money out of me. He walked me through the whole because I wanted be sure and it was fine. Most shops will not do that because I assume they don’t want to know what you do need and don’t. Once I save more money I’m most definitely going to call again and schedule another appointment for the services he recommended for me to get done on my truck. In all honest opinion I would give Fadi a shot before gambling with a shop that could just be lying to you. I sincerely thank Fadi for his honesty and dedication to job. You can tell he enjoys what he does.
