    Your best bet when doing a job like this is the Deere Technical Manual TM2289. Available at your local dealer or on-line.

    YouTube? Really?

    I had a 2305 but never had to deal with a leaky axle seal. It's not uncommon with 2305's though.

    Others who had the issue had to remove the ROPS, Seat and rear bodywork to get at and remove the axle housing to replace the seal. You may be able to work around the ROPS but it's pretty tight under there.

    DO you think that's the deepest into the rear I have to go?
    if so that's a big help knowing that . I don't own the machine yet ,but have priced an axle its over 500.00 so I may get hurt buying it its a crap shoot.
    again thanks for the reply

    Your axle will be fine. I'm sure of it. However if it was me I'd replace the axle bearing and seal at the same time. A little bearing wear and a new seal isn't going to do much good.

    I fully agree my time is worth way more than a bearing .
    thank you again
