Hey guys so far so good.

I'm at the point where I need to remove the seal though and I'm having such a hard time with it.. I've been using a flat head screw driver and a hammer to try get under the metal to push out the seal but it's on there really tight (I'm not hitting super hard because I don't want to harm the transfer case itself), none of my screw drivers fit though.. Is there a way to do it from the inside of the seal? Like fitting in a screw driver and pulling it out while not harming the transfer case spline? Am I missing something?

Ya dont do that. you need to pull it out. Get something with a 90 degree or something curved in to pull it out corner by corner. What you really want is a seal puller, They sell them at any auto parts store for 5 or 6 bucks

Ok I'll try to get in there and pull it.
The reason I was trying the way I was is because every video I saw did it with a screwdriver and hammer.

Anyways, round 2 here goes.
Thanks Carralo1 by the way.

Alright I went out and bought a seal puller.
Really glad I did, it took the seal out in a second.

I went to Pep Boys after and asked for the part, they didn't have it in stock but they showed me this: http://www.pepboys.com/product/details/8839651/00678/

I just want to know if that's the right part because it doesn't look like the one I pulled out.
I brought it to them and everything. But it's the only rear output seal they had.

EDIT: Also I would like to make sure I got the right ATF. I bought Pennzoil ATF. There was also a Pennzoil ATF +4 and other weird stuff that I didn't know what it meant, so if anyone could just verify for me I'd really appreciate it.

Thanks guys

Thanks Max hopefully the one I'm getting is compatible. If not I'll be buying online I guess.

Would anyone know if the ATF I picked up is ok for the Jeep? I don't want to blow anything up.
Thanks


EDIT: I'm seeing people say that it doesn't really matter what I put into the Transfer Case, but then seeing people recommending ATF +4, I don't even know what I have, it's just ATF with no numbers on it. What the heck did I pick up

^^^X2^^^

The transfer case does not require anything beyond basic lubrication, ANY brand/type ATF will be fine.

Alright guys thanks.

I picked up my new seal, should I lube it or something around the edge or install it dry?
Can I just use ATF to lube it?

Definitely lube it. I use a small dab of grease & wipe it all around the lip area of the seal.

You defenitly want the lips wet before you go jamming the shaft in it.

Not sure if you did it yet but make sure you clean around the edges where the seal go.

Before I did a D30 oil seal and didn't clean off some old rtv and it failed.

Hey guys, just an update: everything is done!
So far no leaks and everything is running well. Hopefully it stays that way.

Just want to thank everyone that helped this noob figure it out. I feel like a king not gonna lie, even though it was a really easy thing to do hahah

I did rub the seal and the inside of where the seal goes really well, hopefully it's good enough to keep the seal in place, only time will tell.

Anyways now I've got a new problem.. Seems like when I put the Jeep in reverse it pops out of gear. This happened before in the Jeep but we got it fixed and I guess it's happening again.
Maybe it's time for a new thread though and honestly it isn't all that bad, maybe when I get more fed up with it because this seems like a tougher job that maybe I shouldn't do yet.
