I need some advice and guidance with my 2006 X Type. Recently it dumped all the transmission fluid out the left side out put seal (underneath is all nice a shinning now). I’ve made it as far as trying to remove the axle stub that goes into the transmission (see pic), I’ve read several post and now have more questions than answers.
First should there have been transmission fluid in that area? That being the transfer case, has an internal seal failed?
Second how do you remove the remaining stub axle? Some people say it just needs a good jolt (hammer, levers, puller etc) the workshop manual say it just comes out, some force may be necessary. It feels like something is holding in there and im concerned if i apply force i may break something.
