Anybody have any experience with a leaking seal from the extension housing axle seal, where it connects with the right side CV axle? I just replaced the extension housing and seal. Got 200 miles before it started leaking fluid again. There are no bushings to be replaced, its all one unit. I saw the parts list for my VIN number at the dealer. There is a new race bearing that comes with the new housing.

Any ideas on what might be causing it to leak again. The seal is intact and good.

Thanks -D

The inner boot was malforming and leaking grease so I changed it at the same time as the new extension housing. Both parts brand new.

What about the tranny gears that fit into the race bearings on the other end of the extension housing, where it fits to the tranny? If something is worn and not spinning on a good tight line, then that could wear on the race, malforming the race and causing loose fitting, and then more fluid running into the extension then out the seal with more pressure than it can handle?
