I appear to have what I thought was a drain plug leak, but is in fact a Transmission Side, Driveshaft Oil Seal Leak. Looks like Item 22 in the trans, Part 619230031. Wondering if this can be changed from the shaft side, or transmission side. Any suggestions or advice would be appreciated. I've been doing the trans overfill of 8-900ml, perhaps a plugged vent pushed the seal? 7500km, synthetic changed annually. Thanks for any help.

It must be 619230031. When I purchased my 2016 Skandic hat seal was leaking and the dealer put a new track so They had access on both sides. After seeing a recent post on similar the topic I watched a video from Mathieu Ouellet on YouTube () about our transmission and he explains where the weak points are. Unfortunately it’s in French. But I phoned him and explain the upgrades he does including installing hydraulic seals. He also strongly recommend to change the fork 619230055 at 10000 km. Overall cost 650$ to have a problem free transmission for another 10000km.

You can pull the gearbox off easily and bring it into a shop to have the seals done.

I agree, it's easier to pull the just gearbox than the skid/axle, all the same i would pull everything, the oilseal appears to be leaking but also it could be the axle o-ring that's leaking as well???    good time to check/change the dummy bearing in the process

The oring is right where the axle goes into the gearbox, you can't see it, the "dummy" bearing is opposite the gearbox on the axle, beside your left footrest/brake disc

i found the dummy bearing on the left side, but the o-ring doesn't appear on the parts diagram of the Trans or the Drive System.

Here's a link to a post I made about this a while back https://www.dootalk....eal/?p=19111338

 

The part number for the o-ring that's being talked about is p/n 619230048 however it seems to be only used in the gearboxes from 2009 - 2013.

For those interested, you can see where it is located inside the lower bearing collar. Mine appeared to have a sealant in there as well. Not sure if this was from the factory, or from when I had the gearbox checked by the dealer when I was still under warranty.

The sealant could be leftover run off from the magnetic cap,  they could have applied sealant to the o ring as well, either way it is a good idea to put sealant there!

Good evening gents, after pulling the trans off, the inside of the track drive axle is full of oil, is this normal? I see other posts referring to a Magnetic Cap leaking and and oil entering the axle? can someone help if we're supposed to have oil in the drive axle? we're just pulling the trans to replace the trans-side drive axle oil seal that was leaking. 

 

thanks.

It's "normal" in the sense that it happens to all of them, but it's not meant to be like that.
