Driveshaft oil seal URGENT

Rafazzi,

Any tips for installing a driveshaft oil seal?

Iíve taken the old one out but for the life of me the old one wonít go in. I need something like a 40mm socket to use as a drift around the rim but I donít have one. The bugger keeps popping out if I try to tap one side at a time.

There must be a way the factory fits them... or does anyone have any other ideas? Itís making me swear a lot...

I replaced mine yesterday, I used an old piece of pipe, you could also use 2 pieces of wood and try to tap on both of them at the same time with a hammer

30 inner diameter

Replaced exhaust and intake a week ago. (1.8 16v)
Make sure you push the seal in with a socket or a plastic pvc cap.

I think I've made a mistake and I've mounted the oil seal from the driveshaft the one that sits on the oil pump cause I get oil drops out of the exhaust camshaft, does the driveshaft have another measurements cause the look pretty much the same

Re: Driveshaft oil seal URGENT

If you still have the old seal you can see the numbers of the measurements printed inside the seal. Give it a good clean and look really closely. They should be there.
Thanks kokkolin thanked for this post

Re: Driveshaft oil seal URGENT

My driveshaft oil seal (JTD) is bonded inside a metal sleeve with a metal cap over it, so it doesn't look like a cam-shaft oil seal.

I managed to fit the sleeve into the differential *eventually* after using some emery paper to make the chamfer marginally smaller. The seal was a Meyle seal.

I still needed to press in both sides at once. I used two wooden dowels held in a "v" and was just about able to tap them both at the same time with a mallet..

Since the seal sleeve has a blue coating (oil-seal?) and it was removed by my sanding down, I used some Blue Hylomar in the differential seal seat, so that oil couldn't escape behind the sleeve.

I won't be doing *that* job again for a while....
