Default CV Shaft Oil Seal

I have an trans oil leak where the drivers side cv shaft comes out of the transmission. Has anyone replaced there'* and if so, what did you use to pull out the old seal from the transmission? I am ready to try to remove the cv shaft from the trans but have to find a slide hammer and adapter to pull on it. Wish there was an easier way to remove shaft. No other tranny problems so would like to get this fixed.

As a tech, here'* what I can tell you:

Unbolt the lower ball joint from the spindle.
Unbolt the axle shaft from the spindle.
Go under your car and using a large screwdriver (or large prybar, if possible), put it between the CV joint housing and the transmission housing, and pop the axle out.
To get the seal out, use a screwdriver and pry it out.

Good luck.

A big screwdriver may do the trick, depending on how strong the snapring on the shaft going into the transmission is. Some come out really easy, some take a 3 foor prybar to get enough leverage.

Good luck, and keep us posted!

I just replace a half shaft and it was very easy except the output seal keeps leaking. I repalced 2 seals now and cannot figure it out? It really leaks bad in reverse and on a hard turn. I have done may of these in the past and never had any problems like this... ANy help would be great ...Thanks
