I have a 1999 Boxster Tiptronic with a leaky seal where the axle exits the differential. Must remove the stubb axle to change the seal. Can this be done with the engine in the car even if you have a Tipronic?

Tiptronic?

Nick,


thanks for the quick response. My local well regarded Porsche garage is telling me the seal in the stubb axle can't be replaced without removing the transmission and want $1600 for replacing that seal. I am glad to hear you think it can be done without removing it. Anyone else do this job with a Tiptronic successfully.

Is this the passenger side seal? We replace at least one per month without removing the gearbox.. Find a new shop...

Cheers

Yes, it is the passenger side seal.... what is a ballpark figure one should pay to have this seal replaced on passenger side?

How about he driver's side seal? Can that be done with engine/tranny in the car?

Jeff,

I really appreciate your input on this. I am told that the driver's side stubb axle is longer than the passenger's side one. And that it means you need to drop the drivetrain to get that longer stub axle out to get at that seal. Have you done the driver's side without RR of drivetrain?

Doug

You may need to remove the axle, but just undue the upright to pull the axle. Would never drop a drive train to replace a seal like that..

Cheers
