Does anybody know the price of just the axle seals coming out of the rear and going to the wheels?. My right one was replaced two months ago by a dealer and now its leaking worse than before. Now that the car is out of warrenty I wanted to know how much a seal costs. I already called the dealer and explained to them what happened. They are not sure if they will cover it or not. Help

Rock Auto sells the seal for about $11.00 so figure twice that for worst case MRSP at a dealer. The labor to install one though is 2.4 hours for one side and 4.3 hours for both sides. Hourly labor rate vary from shop to shop.

Just bought 2 of them from dealer, had a shop install in my gen 3 diff I have on shelf. They were $19 each. I figure a little security is worth it

Paid $14 each. Might take some effort to pull the old one off.
