Hey every one im new to site and this is my first post. any way i have 97 civic it originally had a D16y8 that i blew and after a few motor i now recently have a 95 d15 non vtec. my tranny is still the original that came with the car. i recently had to replace the input shaft bearing. my tranny has been working fine but now i have a leak from the driver side drive axle seal. i have replaced this seal once before and when i saw the leak i replace it again but it is still leaking it seems to me the leak is coming from over top of the seal. im thing maybe the seal is the wrong size. i fit it over the axle it self and it seemed to fit it was tight and it was loose enough to rotate easily. i don't know if thats normal or not. also my axle seems to not be going in all the way i have hammered and banged it in. it clicks in but these still seems to be a space between the tranny and the axle. i took the lil c ring off of the end to see if that was the problem but it when in the same way theres a rod going through the diff and the axle is hitting it. i don't know if i need a new axle or maybe im putting in the seal too deep can anyone help?

did you get the seal for a s40 trans or 96-00 ex manual tranny? and the rod is the pin for your open diff. the seal is suppose to be even with the case and i think here is a little gap.

im not sure i had the guys at advance look it up and he wasnt too sure if it was the right one either. ive been looking up the part number and im starting to think that ive been use the seal the hole time. theres an arrow on the seal that tells you the way it turns and the arrow on the one i have is going in reverse as if it is for the passenger side.

the sea has like 2 lips there an iner one that should be flush to the axle wish leaves the outter sticking so that it touches the boot on the axle sealing it.
