I had the same problem with my wives rhino you need to replace the seal. I think the seal is 8 bucks or something like that range pull the axle back out the seal comes out real easy and reinstall the new one make sure you put a little grease on both side of the seal. Hope this helps.

Thanks for the Fast reply....

I was hoping it would be a simple fix like that .

I was worried that I had to dissasemble the rear axle and punch out the old seal

I had the same problem and in all it took me 45 minutes from start to finish. The hardest part was to pull the old seal out and tapping in the new one, rest was just nuts and bolts.

I replaced the seal only, I paid $21.83 from a local dealer( I replaced mine as week). The o-ring if for the axel shaft to stay put in diff assembly. What can go wrong with the o-ring, so I skipped that and used the same one. Works fine for me....

X2 you don't need the O ring but it may be a good idea to get a new axle clip just in case yours is worn and does not stay in there from pulling it in and out.

Need advise on installing rear oil seal

need to replace my axle oil seal on the rear differential. My question is how far do i seat it. Unfortunitly i didnt pay close enough attention on the removal, but it seemed flush with the outside lip of differential and i was able to put the blade of the screw driver behind it and twist, and it popped out. As i install the new one it seems like it could be set in farther in to the differential and seat firmly against a stop , but be more recessed into the differential. HELP PLEASE

Use the one old to tap in the new one, it should sit flush. Do not push it too much further in.

I would try James at JBS. He is a site vendor and has great prices on oem parts. His screen name is wv hotrod. Look on the page that all the vendors are on and give him a call. Im sure he is up!

Just happy to be riding again
