3000GT VR4 & Dodge Stealth Transfer Case Seal Installation GuideChris Behnken
After many years the Stealth or 3000GT VR4 transfer case seals begin to leak, this happened so often there was a safety recall in the 2000s to address the issue. The dealership would replace your seals and inspect your transfer case to see if it needed replaced completely.
The recall has finally expired and very few, if any dealerships are still doing this. As part of our transfer case rebuild service we replace all the seals in the transfer, but some customer may elect to buy just the seal kit and tackle this themselves if their unit does not need a rebuild.
Its fairly straight forward to install the seals, but there are a few tips and tricks that make it easier. It is easier to install these if you remove the side cover and tap on the spool to knock out the gear inside. This also gives you a chance to replace the sealant on the side cover with a high quality RTV, like the “Right Stuff” from permatex. Below you will find some helpful steps if you read the captions.
We hope this has been helpful. Install your t-case, fill it with fluid and go for a drive, check for leaks upon return. You should get many years of service out of your new seals.
