Auto gearbox output shaft bearings and oil seals

Post by Lanciaman »

Can anyone on here offer advice re an auto gearbox, please? The oil seals on the box casing are weeping, but there is play in the shaft coming out of the casing. Not the end float, I mean across the diameter of the flange where the CV of the shaft attaches. I assume there's a bearing in the casing, is this correct, and can it be replaced in situ?
Are there any recommended auto specialists?

Thanks Rob, looks like a useful lead. I've started doing the job myself, removing the output drive flanges from the transaxle, but one side is so tight I'm afraid the Allen key will slip inside the head. The other side was a doddle. But life just ain't always easy, is it. I shall contact them for advice.
