    Axle seal leak

    Has anyone had to replace one? I've got one that's leaking and the car is way past warranty but the cvt has been replaced(used) about a year ago. It's looking like another dealer only item that neither dealer in town has in stock. 2-5 days away...That's my biggest complaint about these cars, they rarely need to be fixed but when they do you'd better not be in a rush cause parts can be hard to get.

    I have replaced them, but not on the mirage, thankfully the mirage has a good bit of room to work in!

    Seems like almost all of those kinds of parts are generic universal parts. If you've got another trans laying around, pull the seal out and measure it... or look for a part number on it. I bet you can find a replacement.
    Simplify and add lightness.

    Good point. It's just a jatco transmission, I'd guess the seal is the same or similar for a spark or nissan. I got one shipped in from the dealer. It just showed up here. The Mitsubishi part number is 2702A072. The numbers on the actual seal are NOK AH23651. 2702A072 is also a part number for a dodge seal, couldn't find a pick for it.

    I don't know anything about automatics, but on a manual transmission, you better drain the fluid before you pull an axle. Otherwise you are in for a big mess.

    This reminds me, I need to get around to topping off my gear oil.
