Pto seal

Recommended Posts

Has anyone replaced the seal on a 2013 edge se? Lookig to get a kit or list of parts needed. Thanks! Some people refer to it as the ptu seal.  


Edit - Doing some digging I'm seeing that there is an entire PTO unit that can be replaced. It's only $600.00 for an aftermarket or rebuilt part. I'm wondering if this would be easier / better. I've now come to find that the PTO / PTU is a common part to fail! What a joke! If I'm pulling the axles out to replace seals and so on it might be worth it to replace the entire PTU. The seal sets I've found range between $100.00 and $250.00 so for an extra few hundred or so it might just be worth it to replace the entire assembly.


I don't want this to be an all weekend project though if I don't need it to be. I'm having hard shifting and figured the transmission was behaving like it was low on oil. Sure enough when I looked under the car there is oil leaking from the seals. I figured I'd replace the fluids and see what happened. Now I'm wondering if my unit has just gone bad, or even if it hasn't if I should get ahead of the problem before me or my wife are left stranded. 


I would have thought the rough shifting would be due to low ATF, but the ATF has no dip stick and I see no leaks, and the PTO is leaking on both sides.


Any insight would be greatly appreciated! Thanks all!
