Customer Question

Hi George.
I just replaced the CV Joints in my wife's 2005 Outback. One side is working great, but the other side is leaking oil at the axle/transmission interface and dripping onto the exhaust. What do you recommend to get this sealed up and dry?

Hello and welcome. My name is ***** ***** you for visiting the site. George doesn't seem to be online at this time. I will try to help you if you like.

Did you replace the output shaft seals on the, (auto?) trans?

No. I didn't realize this was a step. I've been watching youtube videos that only replace the CV shafts.

That is most likely the cause of the leak, especially if it was not leaking before.
