PTU seal replacement FAILURE


Recommended Posts


11 edge 3.5L AWD. RH ATF leak.

The manual recommended seal kit # DB5Z-7275-C.


The seal washer is little different and the extra seals were recycled.

The leak came back after 50 miles. Grrrrrrrr

But this was a concern. The shaft journal that the seal seated on was bad.


Now I have the same new kit but need an advice.

Replace the intermediate shaft due to a bad journal. ?

The machined surfaces need to be perfect. The JY ones don't look much better than your original. I would go for a new one. I don't know the price but it should work.

If you're located outside of the US you probably can have a friend ship one to you if no local parts are available.
