Gearbox oil seal
Does anyone know the part number(s) I need for a gearbox oil seal for a 98 v6? Its the seal for the passenger side driveshaft, although it might be a bit late because the box has got rattly because it started leaking just before I did 300 miles on it (I didn't notice until it was parked up for a few days and a puddle of oil appeared).
Seemed to be making a rattle type noise (sounds a bit like bearings) from the just inside the casing at the end of the box when I rotated the wheel round whilst it was jacked up and not in gear. The gearbox still had oil in it, but the rattle speaks for itself unless it was caused by all the oil draining to the back of the box since its parked on a hill.
Whats the damage likely to be if it has been running low on oil? Any product I could chuck in to make it better since I would imagine the gearbox is pretty costly.
