RepairPal Verified Kia Forte Problem Reports
Vehicles with a 6sp manual transaxle may develop a fluid leak from one or both axle seals. The seals can become damaged due to an interference fit of the axle. Our technicians recommend to replace the inner axle tri-pod housing with a revised part along with the affected axle seal. Repairs should be performed on both left and right front axles if a leak is noted.
