My shaft nut is leaking on my 2000 Outback. Has anyone changed/fixed this before? Any help would be great!
Thanks

You should know the old style one (which I assume you have) is supposed to drip just a little bit. If it is running in through there though you have to change it.

Thanks for the info.... IT has a little more than a drip... So I need to get it fixed! Thanks

Hope all is well. All direct drives use the 1/4" packing, all V-drives use the 3/16" packing. If you are not familiar with the install and tightening procedure, you can contact; techservice@skierschoice.com They have emailable (my word) and faxable instructions on this. Brian Raymond

You can definitely do this yourself.
