Transfer Case Leak Help

Is this just the Pinion Seal that needs to be replaced? Also I'm taking a 7hr round trip this weekend...should I be ok?

DEAR LORD!!! Did you pull that driveshaft from the bottom of the ocean???

pickup a seal and a bushing for the TC. I read in other articles they can be a PITA to remove/install, but if you have another vehicle, once you get it off, take it to a local trans shop and they can R&R the seals/bushings for free or <$20.

Just make sure when you get your seal and pull the slip yoke out, feel the yoke and make sure its smooth and not have any burrs that will tear up your new seal. then make sure the seal is the right size on the yoke and not too big.

Exactly what I was thinking.

Personally, I'd let it go. Just keep the fluid topped up in the case.

Think of it as an asset, not a liability. Instead of thinking "leak" (bad) think "proactive rust control system" (good) instead.

Seriously, it's not as bad as it looks. Do the repair as mrdeath2000 suggested, but it can wait until you're ready.

I agree with Mean Max. Mine has looked like that for years and I just check the fluid every once in a while. As well as rust control it also ensures the fluid is always fresh!

Hell Yeah! Vermont Rust..The Rest of it doesn't look like that, frame and body are in great shape. lol..So had to drive to Sears and pick up a 30mm (only friken socket I don't own) and picked up fluid to only find the fluid level is fine....Guess I will just keep an eye on the level. Time to return the fluid.
