Default IMPORTANT: Suzuki SX4 Updated Rear Diff Flange and Oil Seal

Short video i posted on YouTube showing the updated parts for the rear differential driveshaft flange and oil seal on affected Suzuki SX4 AWD models (Japan RW420 production) with the 2.0 liter petrol engine.

Affected Models: All 4WD SX4 (RW420) models.

There is an improved driveshaft flange and differential side oil seal which should help in eliminating corrosion (and therefore leaks) on vehicles driven in severe winter conditions where de-icing agents are used on the roads.

This should resolve any future leaks.

Updated driveshaft flange part number: 27780-79J10

Updated rear side differential seal: 09283-35064

I would assume if you don't fit a new flange with the cover the upgraded oil seal lip will have nothing to run on and therefore be no better than the original seal.

Thanks for the info...I have returned to the underside and have added (I had coated the underside yesterday, before reading this thread) a double extra coat of winter protection over these flanges.....there are two, of course, one on each side....which is not clearly stated in the video nor in the service bulletin...
WIfe's sx4 has very low mileage and no sign of leaks..it has been coated every year since new so maybe corrosion was kept away...

not sure if the new seal lip runs/makes contact with the new flange cover, i'm assuming it acts like a shield

great advice LMP, I will do the same, my sx4 is very low mileage (16,500km) and shows no signs of leaking, but still can't hurt to coat it,
what product did you use? (I have some rust check)

I bought a blue "hybrid " coating from Carquest, a mix of petroleum and parrafin. I had bought the spray gun kit for 70C$ last year, and a gallon of product for 45C$ both including taxes. A gallon coats 3 cars that size (Sorento and SX4) THe cars have been coated every year since new. .

So I bought an extra gallon this year.
