Re: 96 S-10 Blazer front differential removal
There is a seal that goes inside the plastic cover. I've replaced a few of these, but it's been a while. I don't remember exactly how it goes together. The seal is available through GM. If you remove the right axle tube be carefull when putting it back together. There are 3 thrust washers in ther that must be in position before the axle will go back in.
