    Proper g260 rear output seal replacement help

    Replacing the output seal as it is leaking, wondering if someone can tell me how they install the seal, as I am not sure where to put the loctite 270 as described in bently, I have heard people having trouble with doing this twice and I do not want to do this twice as it was already a pain in the ass to get this far.

    I just replaced my rear seal and used some loctite or other appropriate sealer on the splines of the flange when installing it. Otherwise, oil can leak through the spline connection.

      Okay, so no loctite on the nut? Or both? I only want to do this once.

      Addition: I put loctite 263 everywhere on the splines of the flange, the threads of the nut, the back of the nut, and during the brief test after about a hour cure it held oil back.
