Leaking axle shaft seal

4293 Views 9 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  maeng9981
I appear to have a bad axle seal. I am leaking fluid on the drivers side where the axle enters what I think is the transmission case. I have not pulled the wheel to look closer yet since I don't know if this is likely something I can handle myself. Is the a common failure on a 2003 DHS and something a shade tree mechanic can fix? Or is this something I should not even attempt to handle and take it to a dealer.

I believe there is also a website that sells the similar axle stabilizer bearing; although you'd have to find a shop to machine the axle tripod.
That was the one I was referring to. I might need one in the near future, also.
