This is the only film on youtube on how to install the seal in the knuckle! Thank you also for the advise w/silicon pasta, but I can't understand how it can keep the spring rings fm falling out, it is just pasta. I forgot to put it on before the installation of the seal. Should I put it on still? Does it prevent from moisture? Thank you for a great film.

Christine Stevens says:

Is it necessary to replace the seal if only the spring in it has come loose? I went to install my cv axle and saw the seal spring hanging loose.

That ball peen hammer seal tapping trick saved me on an 02 grand prix. Thanks for that

Bob Sanders says:

Jesus, I'm not one to leave negative comments much but find a less blunt object to take that cap off and if you need to put a bar on the studs put lug nuts on first so you don't ruin the threads. Axle nut is 35mm on stock axle.

This guy used punch on every rubber seal he came across lol. How about run to home depot and pick up a few 2 feet long, 2” & 3” OD pvc pipe and keep them in your toolbox. This is why i do all maintenance and repair on my own vehicles.

George Parra says:

Where can I can the seal that is located behind the knuckle that you are installing at the 17:00 minute mark

John Smith says:

What is the diameter area your tapping on those seals? Isn't there a seal driver for this?

Mark Ziegler says:

Was this FJ one purchased just for demonstration purposes? I see it used in a lot of FJ Videos..

Alexander S says:

where can i buy just the seal? like you show in the video cant find it anywhere in your website

Mr. Harrelson says:

did you charge extra labor for the seals being that you were replacing the axles?

Kevin Tran says:

Do you have the video Toyota Tacoma front passenger side differential bearing remove

Bankhead_662 says:

The next person that try's to take that dust cap off is going to curse you big time

SerchSource says:

Are those fluids, transmission or gear oil?!

stites outdoors says:

Putting the vehicle in 4 Low also would help you torque the main CV axle nut

stites outdoors says:

Excellent video the only thing I recommend is to just undo the two lower bolts on the lower ball joint and the steering tie rod
