Michael Knight

Asked by Mar 17, 2016 at 04:40 PM about the 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Keep getting the wrong seal from parts
warehouses and even the dealer.
Where can i find the right part. The
seals i keep getting fit the shaft but are
to big for the housing

5 Answers


the seal will be bigger as it needs to be pressed in. It should only be slightly bigger like a 1/16th in diameter, not physically bigger

This seal will collapse if we try to press it in


it has been a while since I changed one you may need to machine a tool to keep the inside straight whilst being pressed in

Michael Knight

Its way to big to press in. Theres no way it can be put in without destroying the seal


Maybe the person who owned it before you changed it, got one at a salvage yard from a different year but it still bolts up correctly. Ive had dozens of customers who bought boneyard parts only to find out that while they bolt onto the vehicle, the years are different
