Re: Transmission fluid leaks from CV axle hole.

SuperHerman, You are amazing. Thanks to your detailed pictures of the parts and explanations, I now have a very clear picture of the situation. I am convinced that I can leave the loose part alone and it will not cause any damage to the other parts of the transmission. I think you are saying that as...

Re: Transmission fluid leaks from CV axle hole.

SuperHerman, I made my previous posting not realizing that you already posted the pictures of the parts in question. If my posting sounds disconnected from yours that is why. My apologies. Yes, I believe what you are describing is exactly my problem. I accidentally pressed out the inner cap while I ...

Re: Transmission fluid leaks from CV axle hole.

It turned out I was mistaken. The inner cap was loose after all. I could move it with a screw driver. This is bad news. I probably need to take out the transmission to deal with this problem. Or, if I attach a strong magnet at the end of the CV axle, then it will attract the loose inner cap and prev...

Re: Transmission fluid leaks from CV axle hole.

ggleavitt, you are amazing. The link you found above describes almost exactly my situation. The only difference is in his case, the inner cap was lose . Because of that he had to take apart the tranny. In my case, the inner cap is held by something. If I can convince myself that it is secure, I thin...

Re: Transmission fluid leaks from CV axle hole.

SuperHerman, I somehow skipped over your input. Thank you for taking your time to reply. I think what you quoted is pretty much what's happened to me except in my case it is on the passenger side and it is self-inflicted by pressing on the inner seal. By the way, my tranny is Aisin AW55-50/51SN and ...

Re: Transmission fluid leaks from CV axle hole.

The inner cap seems to be held in place solidly somehow - not sure by what. I think it is pushed in quite a bit though, may be a half an inch, so I am also worried if it is interfering with something behind. When I turned on the engine and put the gear in D, I see the inner cap spinning along with t...

Re: Transmission fluid leaks from CV axle hole.

gglevitt, Thank you for posting the link that shows the picture of the hole. Based on that, I think I did push the inner cap out. What I don't understand is why the inner cap simply did not fall down when it was pushed in. When I looked into the hole with a mirror, it was still perfectly co-axial to...

Transmission fluid leaks from CV axle hole.

I am working on a 2006 XC90 2.5T AWD. I am replacing the angle gear and angle gear sleeve. I am currently at the stage where the angle gear is removed and the sleeve is replaced with a new one. To test the new seals around the new sleeve, I turned on the engine. To my surprise, I see the transmissio...
