How To Replace The Right Front Axle Seal, 2000 Chevy Suburban 4X4.




What do you think about this video?

ArmaAceChannel: I put UV dye in my Sierra 5.3 engine oil and went under the hood tonight and noticed my driver side axle is glowing. not from the dye i dont think but maybe the color of the fluid glew natural under the light. its weird because my engine has been loosing oil and have to ad quart every month. starting to think all that oil splashed on my oil pan and bell housing is all just from the axle. Can older cars loose oil thru regular combustion?

Jim Gold: Motor wiring that locks axle in place.  You think that would be a HUGE focal point when doing a DIY video for people.  Where is this wiring and motor located?

sj p: Do you have to drain the gear oil in order to replace seals?

kenman1717: Very informative.  Did you have much trouble dropping that axle tube down once you unbolted it? Sometimes they are a pain, and you pretty much have to unbolt the whole front diff so you can change its angle to get the tube off, and some times you even have to take out that right cv axle. I think it has a lot to do with year and whether its a 1/2 ton or 3/4 ton, I can't remember exactly. Another question, that washer you pulled out that had the ears on it that just sat in the slots of the tube, was there another washer with it. The older ones usually have 2 washers, one with ears and one regular, and they make up a certain thickness but if you ever need to replace them there is a new update one with ears that is thicker, that replaces both. I have ran into that before took everything apart to do the seal and one ear was missing and ground up in that sliding sprocket and gear.

RICKAFIX: mine has the leak to but mostly annoying to see. But those roller bearings would be effected by a leaking seal only if all the fluid leaked out??? Pulling off those would be the next step before i pull the plug on a rebuild. I'll see If I can record it tomorrow before and after i Install the axles. Thanks Spelunkerd....l

Chris Wheeler: When you get a chance will you look at my videos and look at the one that is 3 seconds long and tell me if you think the bearing in there could be the caise of the grinding and popping noise?

Chris Wheeler: Ill try to capture the sounds its making in a video and post if online.

Chris Wheeler: Do you know anything about that bearing inside there? Do you know signs of it going bad?

spelunkerd: Thanks for the followup, Matt. Nice to meet you. Dave

Matt Kelly: Thanks. As far as the guts go the 95 seems to have the same set up as the the suburban as far as assembly goes. Different seals and parts im sure but these videos will help with a large range of years and models of chevy/gmc vehicles. Good stuff thanks for the video and references

Matt Kelly: agreed. spinning helps. I was smashing the thing with no luck until i finally spun it in the right position and it only took a good whack. I believe if you look very closely at the axle splines you can see the splines where the retaining washer is suppose to go are worn/rounded more at the top. I could have also been drunk and delusional so dont quote me on that

spelunkerd: I crawled under and had a look. My number is 26058833 with F-11 underneath that. Good luck, Matt.

Matt Kelly: its just a shot in the dark. the diagrams i have been able to find show the exact same set up. doesnt mean ratios, lengths etc. are the same but it would be nice to know how similar the guts are

spelunkerd: As I recall, GM modified the design of their trucks between 1995 and 2000, and so it may well be different. I'll have a look tomorrow -- if I can read the numbers I can list them off for you, though even then it would be a guess. As you know, the most reliable way to get parts is to have the old part in hand when you go to the parts store, though getting to the store without a vehicle is sometimes a problem.

Matt Kelly: any chance of getting the part number off of the shaft housing assembly? Im about to tackle my 95 gmc k1500 and just want to confirm that it is a different model bc the national seal part number called for a 71010 and looks way different from the one you have installed. My housing number is 26033234-2 it should be raised numbers visible from underneath.

spelunkerd: yeah, mine slipped in but I know what you mean. I think the ring can bind if it's at the wrong angle and it won't go that way. spinning and trying again seems to help.

Broc Bell: I just replaced mine, and the only problem I came across was getting the gear with the retaining ring back on the axle shaft. Took quite a few good smacks but it finally went.

URTARDS2: The title, it says how to replace the right front axle seal... But you never shown which seal is the wrong seal.

spelunkerd: I'm sorry, I am not understanding your question.

URTARDS2: Which seal is the wrong one?
