Leaking rear diff

The rear diff on my Disco (200Tdi, 1993) is leaking at the output flange. I
replaced the oil seal, which improved things, but there is still a leak.

Any ideas?

Thanks,

Pieter Vroom

Re: Leaking rear diff

Or the shaft has got a groove worn in it?

Maybe the breather is blocked somewhere.When you're driving the thing gets
warm,air inside is expanding,pushing the oil through the seal?

If you are sure that you didin't damage the seal when fitting it's
possible the flange shaft is worn, look for a groove in it.
Try cleaning it with a bit of 400 grit wet and dry paper and seat the
seal a bit further in or out (if possible) so the seal runs on a none
worn part of the flange. Also may sure you grease the inner lip of the
seal before refitting the flange, you can be reasonably liberal here.
Good luck
