Lunch time today i recieved a phone call letting me know that the kits i ordered were in ! That was quick i only ordered them friday arvo, so i turned my work phone off and took a drive to pick them up.
looks like good quallity, i like seeing made in japan on bearings.(not brazil like standard)
the seals look to be made by the original manufacturer as they are exactly the same in every way.
the lock ring is slightly different Which could possibly affect the pickup of the abs tone ring.
Tomorrow i will fit the seals and bearing to the axles.
fingers crossed i can pickup new brake shoes tommorow aswell.

This seal has gone on my D40 as well. Rang a bearing place and they have two kits available they said they need to know what Model my D40 a YD40 or a VQ40 because they bearings are different. Just wondering what model yours is?

Thanks for your helpful post on this problem. I too have a LHS axle leaking seal that constantly contaminates the whole brake setup and drips from the drum. I'm in Perth WA. Mine is an 06 Nav 4LV6.
Anymore more updates on your repair?
Cheers Baz

Thanks for your kind words buggybaz .
i have done around 4000ks since replacing the rear axle bearings and seals and brake shoes with no leaks .
i imagine it would be worth the work and hassle to anyone given the savings involved.

I'm glad it's all still working OK, good for you.
What makes my blood boil tho, is that after buying my Nav used at only 27,000k's and finding the rear seals leaking, I thought it unbelievable for such a newish car. I then found out that Nissan had a recall or fixed this prob under warranty. So I decided to check if mine was to be fixed, rang the local dealership and they checked with Nissan and said mine had already been replaced by the previous owner?! What a load of crap! So in my thinking, Nissan has had 2 goes at this trying to seal the axle? Once from new when first manufactured, then under warranty/recall, and NOW I'm supposed to be responsible to fix it? Yeah good one Nissan.
Would you mind emailing me your ph# please? Just want to ask you a few things about the kit.
My email address is oddy59@iprimus.com.au
Cheers Baz.

Hi Buggybaz, How hard a job is this seal to replace? How do you get the ABS ring gear off and on? Any info appreciated...

Hi my son has a D40 and needs to replace the rear axel seals like yours. I see by your pictures that it is the same as we need. We purchased the kit that you got but not all the seals that are in the pictures were there. Can your please tell me where you got every thing from? Many Thanks
