Wrench Replace Axle Seal While Replacing Axle?

Is it silly to NOT replace the seal on the Driver side while I'm replacing the Axle if it's NOT leaking? Getting an old seal out seems to be a sticking point for some, and I'd rather not bring this into the equation if I don't have to. My repair window is small enough, and I'd rather just get the old axle off and get the new one on.

Thanks!

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Default Re: Replace Axle Seal While Replacing Axle?

If the transaxle seal isn't leaking I leave it alone. It's not the end of the world if you have to do it later anyway. Getting the seal out is easy with a hooked seal pulled. Installing the new one is tricky. Go to the parts store and get a small exhaust pipe piece of the precise diameter, place a block of wood against it and tap with hammer. The new seal must be tapped evenly 360 degress around or it will bend and leak. You can't just tap on the seal itself.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
