Vehicles (17 Jan 2019)
You can now add the vehicles you own to your profile as little icons that appear in your profile and alongside your posts.
This is a bit of an experiment. Take a look under the "REWARDS" menu across the top of the screen for the vehicles "ADD/MODIFY" option.
Let me know how you get on.
Gearbox oil seal (VVT)
Some Suzukis and a bunch of motorcycles.
standard jimny - for now
The exhaust also has to be dropped from the joint with the springs to get the prop out.
There was a faulty batch of props and the oil leaks down the splines through the sealing adhesive inside the yoke of the UJ.
As said Suzukis answer is a replacement prop(different part number) and a seal .
I had my seal replaced and it didn't cure it but mine was out of warranty so I had to pay for a prop although the garage didn't charge labour.
It's the same seal as earlier boxes so there is no reason to suspect the seal as it has proved itself on earlier cars but worth trying anyway as it's only about £10.
Just keep an eye on the oil as it only holds 1.3ltrs so even a small leak can cause gearbox problems.
Overfilling is also a problem so let it all drip out until it stops dripping out of the level plug(car level of course)
I started off high and worked my way down ever since
Anyone have any tips for getting the rear output seal out?
I've tried levering it, tried getting a self-tapping screw in the pulling with pliers, all to no avail. Am worried I've nicked the inner shaft, but that's a problem for another day, just want to get the damn thing out!

I bought this or a similar kit. was easy when the box was out anyways, but it should be doable with the box in the car. Remove axle and exhaust and possibly gearbox rear bracket.

An old trick is to screw a self rapper into the side of it and use that to pull it out.
