    So i was looknig at my truck today and noticed a little oil coming from the end of the transmission where the drive shaft starts. My question is how hard is it to replace that seal, the repair manual says to drain fluid to replace, has anyone ever replaced this seal? Then i followed the drive shaft down and checked the carrier bearing and notices it has a tear in it, so that needs to be replaced as well. That looks pretty straight forward, Is it just as it appears for removal and reinstall. Would you guys go with OEM or is there another brand that is better to replace it with. Thanks in advance.

    How bad of a "leak" is it? If its not dripping I would call it normal seepage. If you had pics we could help you out more.

    was not a leak more like a think film of fluid on the bottom of the transmission coupler or whatever that thing on the end of the transmission is. I am way past the TSB timeframe 150,000 on my truck. Please let me know how hard it is to replace, cant see why you would have to drain the transmission fluid to replace it, seems like a way to charge you more money to change an 11 dollar seal.

    I wouldnt bother if it hasnt formed a drip. Try cleaning it off with some brake clean and take a look at your next oil change.

    I was looking at mine today, and also have a enough to form a drip..not sure how much might be leaking mines on 06, 75000. Is there a TSB, not sure they would fix it under my powertrain? Anyone have this done, was there a tsb?

    I noticed the same thing the other day... a small amount of Oil where the driveshaft connects to the transmission.... also a small amount of splash caused by the shaft spinning. But nothing that drips to the ground and creates a visible spot.

    Very minimal...very small amounts....but still a little concerning.

    I have an 06 V6 w/ 54,000 miles
