    Thumbs down driveshaft seals

    took out my n/s driveshaft to replace leaking seal , all put back together then the f####r still leaked
    when I checked it all again I found the inner cv joint or more so the shaft which enters the g/box has some play , i.e. it can be moved up and down slightly.
    now ... is this supposed to be slackish or tight ?
    any mechanics out there that knows ? or will I just pull the rest of my hair out
    ps... the car still drives fine just the slight leak.

    slight movement is allowable.. but just how much have you got..any more than a millimetre at the joint is too much and the oilseal won't hold the gearbox oil back..which seal did you replace??.. is it the gearbox driveshaft seal?.. any wear ridge on the CV shaft?..

    yeah was the n/s gearbox seal at shaft, no obvious sign of wear on the shaft , there is prob a few mm of play in it , might just have to get a hold of another and try that , or just the inner cv joint ,

    If for any chance you need a CV boot, I have a VX one in my cellar taking up space. Its yours if you want it.
