Default AWD Transmission seals 93 VR4

Alright well it seems the seals on the transmission are leaking. I could see after removing the T-case that the input shaft to the T-case seal on the trans was leaking is this common?

I think these are the only seals on the transmission to be replaced from the outside, please correct me if I am wrong or I word them incorrectly.

Driver side output shaft seal ( axle )
Passenger side output shaft seal ( axle )
T-case input shaft seal
Transmission input shaft seal ( the main spline the cltuch rides on )

--------------

Where can I get these from? Any local parts stores? I don't really want to go on 3sx.com right now may take awhile to get.. if I do have to I guess I do.

Thanks everyone!! Any other info would be great.

That transmission output shaft seal (the shaft sticking out of the transmission to go into the transfer case) cannot be replaced without disassembling the transmission. It is a serious F*** YOU when that thing starts leaking.

Its an 18+ year old seal probably. There aren't a lot out there in any application that is still sealing after this many years.

So. To put these transmissions back together what is the best sealant? I have the entire transmission apart now. I will post pictures a little later too.

Wow. You're fast. I can't say what the BEST sealant is, and there is some controversy on issues like it HAS to be anaerobic sealer or whatever, but in my experience, between two machined surfaces like this, I've never had to use anything other than a thin bead of RTV of your choice. I use the black stuff in the aerosol cans since it is just so much easier to dispense and literally lasts me years and the stuff in the tube always dries out on me long before I get to use all of it.

I've sealed up at LEAST 6 manual transmissions over the years using whatever RTV I had sitting around and not once I've ever had an issue. And it lasts, too. The 543 trans in my Daytona was sealed up 10 years ago with Permatex Ultra Copper and it has zero issues. I've used the blue stuff, the orange stuff, the black stuff and never, ever an issue yet.

yeah, its supposed to be an anaerobic sealant. however what i use is a tiny bead (maybe 2mm) of black RTV and then make sure that it sits at least 24 hours before its moved or fluids are put in it to make sure the sealant has time to cure properly. never had a trans leak doing it that way.

It was not hard to take apart. I have to bring the one part of the case where the seals I am replacing to a shop. There is a pressed in bearing and that seal is behind it. I don't know if I can take out the nose cone thing that protrudes out. I took a Snap ring off it before I took the trans apart. it's where the output shaft comes out of. Anyone know?
