driveaxle seal part number warning

1569 Views 3 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  wren53
Do not buy the transmission output seals, the one that attach to the driveaxle, at the local parts place. I am pretty ticked off because the car has been down for a week while I have been waiting for parts. All auto parts store computers and books have the wrong part numbers. Autozone, carquest, and napa, etc., all have the wrong part numbers. :mad:

This place has the correct seal numbers


The seal is 48mm inner diameter, 62mm outer diameter, 6.8mm height. From the dealer, the part is $20 each, online it is about $14, I suggest that you don't buy it from the local parts place. Do not buy it unless they have the seal dimensions.

thanks for the warning, that sux what happened
The dealer gave me a loyal customer discount on the seals too, so I basically wasted a week. Thumbs down for me!
I don't think dealers' parts are that bad. After shipping and waiting, online is still cheaper but like you said, you can get a frequent customer discount. It's labor that I avoid like the plague.
