when i pulled the engine and tranny out of my front clip as well as when i installed it to my car (i guess they didn't drain the tranny fluid completely), there was tranny fluid leaking from the rear oil seal (the hole where the drive shaft goes in) because i got my engine and tranny tilted. is it supposed to do that? or is my oil seal is worn out? if it's worn out, does the KA24DE one fit?

Ok, hate to hijack the thread, but I have a leak in that area too, except it is a small drip leak. I assume the rear seal is gone. My question is, where can I get this seal for the S14 SR tranny? Is it the same as the KA tranny?
Thanks

Yes, there are the same

Mine started to leak a little when i changed over to redline tranny fluid, but after a week or so it stopped leaking and just took and returned the oil seal back to the dealership..

Have to disagree with you there... I just swapped out driveshafts last night and when I pulled the old one out, no fluid came out. I checked afterwards and the level was fine.

if the transmission sits level, there is no oil pouring out. coz the oil level is lower than the bell housing's drive shaft hole. it pours out when i have the tranny tilted.

yes indeed it does pour out when tilted and driveshaft out. most swaps ive seen done they have a cut piece of driveshaft they stick in while the engine is being put in.

I need that answer questioned. I am away from my car (again http://forums.freshalloy.com/images/graemlins/rolleyes1.gif) and need to know if I need any special tools for removing or replacing the rear oil seal on my tranny. I already gotta pickup a pilot bearing removal tool for mah new clutch.

factory service manual, MT-3, MT-5, no complicated words, just illustrations, ideal for some of you who prefer not to read. did you get that or do i have to draw all of this?

the job can probably be done without those tools, but you asked for such info, now you know.

Anyone with half a brain knows that you don't need half of the tools listed in the FSM to do the job. All I was asking is if you need (next time I will bold need just for you) the tools they listed. Which I guess you answered in the most ambiguous and d*ckhole way, kudos to you. And yea I did read the FSM... MT-5 is a keeper... http://forums.freshalloy.com/images/graemlins/rolleyes1.gif

I just used a really small screwdriver to carefully pry out the seal. I was afraid I would score the surface and casue a leak but it didn't. You can just press the new one in w/o any tools.

hope this helps

btw - Now we know why factory tech's toolboxes are so big - all those "specisl" tools. I wonder if they even use them.

If its a slow drip I wouldn't worry about it. Mine drips once and a while even with a brand new seal.
