2004 VUE 2.2L
Default Axle Seals

Is there something suppose to go between the axle seals and the transmission case? I put in one set a week ago and it leaked again. I greased up the lips with some bearing grease but that was it. I thought I read something somewhere about Loc-Tite. Anything else? I couldn't find the Loc-Tite.

You can put anaerobic sealant on the outer edge (basicly between the seal and the trans case) of the seal to prevent any leakage there. I believe that GM calls it gasket maker. I am sure that loctite would have it as well. Looks like a nice edible red liquid cherry gel. Thin layer on the outside edge of the seal would do the trick.

Loctite 515 (Anaerobic) Gasket Eliminator / Flange Sealant...

Permatex (used to be part of the same company) makes an equivalent anaerobic product, but it comes in a blue tube. Can't recall the part number.
