AW4 4x4 Output Seal Replacement How-To?
I need to replace the rear output seal on my 4wd AW4 trans, and I've searched and can't find any write-ups on doing this, which leads me to believe that it's a) hard/near impossible to do it w/o dropping the trans or b) so easy a caveman can do it. I'm not afraid to drop the TC and tackle it with the trans still in the Jeep, but am hesitant about needing to drop the trans if need be. What am I getting myself into once I drop the TC?
I've seen some write ups for 2wd AW4's, and its easy, but they stress that 2wd and 4wd seal replacements are different. Also I've seen that there's a bearing in there that may need to be replaced or it will cause the seal to leak in no time...is that the same for 4wd AW4s?
