I have a leak between my transmission and transfer case on my 97 Jeep 4×4 grand cherokee. How do I fix it?

I am leaking tranny fluid from my transfer case and it is coming from the input shaft between the transmission and transfer case. Do I need to drop the tranny to repair it? Is there an easier way?

    You have to get a new gasket for it. You will most likely need to drop your tranny to get to it, But if you are really good with cars and mechanics you will be able to fix it pretty easy. Me and my fiance just fixed his on his bronco and we didn’t need to drop the tranny but the bronco sits up really high so we could get to it from under the truck. Take a look at the transfer case and make sure that there is nothing else wrong with it. If it was leaking too long you could have some damage to the tranny itself.

    If it is coming from in between the transmission and transfer case it is most likely the transmission output seal. This happens all the time. You need to remove the transfer case and replace both the trans output seal and the transfer case input seal. They will run you about $14 total for the parts and $210 in labor. You can do it yourself, it is not that hard.
