    Default Assistance with oil leak on Renault 16TS drive shaft

    I have a manual for my 16TS however it doesnít cover how to remove a drive shaft
    My 16TS has an oil leak where the passenger side drive shaft goes into the gearbox
    i assume there must be an oil seal that needs replacing however I canít find any information on removing the driveshaft and replacing the seal.
    Can someone give me some advice or a link that may help.
    Regards
    Francis

    Hi Frank, Just be wary of inner joint of drive shaft and not to fully extend it otherwise it can dismantle insie boot which would then require removal of boot and reassemble joint then replace boot.the drive shaft roll pin must be fully removed first before attempting to remove drive shaft from gearbox,the oilseal retaining nut also adjusts the diff side bearing pre load and back lash of diff, so before removing nut it must be marked so as it refits in the exact same position it came from (number of turns of nut and nut position in relation to housing)......just a couple of thoughts.......jim+ Reply to Thread

    When in there I would also check diff outdrives for lateral play. The oil leak will return if any.
