Differential Pinion Seal. FRONT, Super, AXLES. 2012 Ford Escape. Genuine Ford Part - 8C3Z4L616B (8C3Z-4L616-B). Ships from Lakeland Ford Online Parts, Lakeland FL
While the metal carrier of the seal is sturdy, the flexible seal is fragile and can be easily torn by a ham-handed installation of an incoming axle. Since installing new axle seals requires removal of the axles, a great time to inspect and replace them is during axle service.
