Thanks got the seal, van on jacks stands....and i can't get the old seal out, i even tore a bit of it trying.
There's a decent chance that the new seal got damaged on removal, so watch carefully for leaks. I often buy extra seals just in case this happens (more of a risk on cam/crank seals, but same idea on the axle seal). If you have sufficient access, a pry bar is reasonable way to remove an axle seal - they really get stuck in there with age.Ended up using a small pry bar and worked it out slowly. When I reinstalled I ended up going too deep into the opening, so had to carefully remove it and reseat it - hopefully it was to spec.
Well?? I can't follow, you started with frontend and now everything is wrong with it? Did you not fix the noise or clunking?ok changed the plugs this morning to rutheniums, noticed they are about 2mm shorter when compared to the laser iridiums, van starts and runs fine.
However, my cylinder 2 and 3 at the back are leaking oil pretty bad, suspect either the valve cover gasket (which honda replaced in aug 2019) or the o-rings for the spark plug tube seals...either way i feel like that job is going to be a PITA, might as well consider a valve adjustment, heavy sigh.
Man i miss working on things from the 90s - like my 96 civic hatch, i can climb into the engine bay
