Default Re: 2004 L300-1 Auto Axle Seal - Drv & Pass sides

Here's my discussion with a tech at about replacing my left axle seal:

I posted a link to a tech procedure towards the end of the thread that should be very helpful to you. I did not use the proper tool for installing the outer seal, but eyeballed the depth, which worked out OK.

It was one of the more difficult jobs I have done on a car, ever. $160 at a dealer would be well-spent, I think, though now that I have done it, doing it again would be MUCH easier.

If you want to buy the inner seal removal tool from me for $67, send a private message.

Also have a 2008 Astra XE
