KJSmith, thanks for the info. It leaking some but not pouring so hopefully the seal is ok. I take it that nothing really holds the CV axle in the housing, it just kind of pops in? The only thing I see that I could tap on would be the silver looking ring, but it moves back and forth. I may need to take the wheel and spindle off to see if that works? Any special tools needed for that? I got your PM and I will check that out as well! Thanks for the help!
