Do I need to take my transmission apart to replace a front axle seal?

Asked by Mar 30, 2016 at 03:41 PM about the 2001 Chevrolet Impala Base

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Leaking transmission fluid. Need to know if there's a transmission clip that
pulls out to where I can just pop a new seal in or if I need to disassemble it.

No but you will need to drain the tranny to change out the seal. Ensure you fill it properly once the seal (and axle) has been replaced. Do not over or under fill!!!! Best of luck!
