Yes,the axle has to come out.Which means the rear end cover has to be removed.If your not familiar with this process you should not attempt it on your own or you could end up with bigger head aches.Hope this heaps.Good luck.

the connections near the front axle that activate the motor to engage the system aren't melted? That's a comon problem for that body style. If there good, sounds like it could be that motor itself. To figure out if it's you motor or transfercase, jack up the rear end, have a friend inside shift into 4 wheel drive, or try to, and put it in gear and apply some gas. If the front driveshaft is turning then it's something with the front end. If not, farther back in the system.

sounds like the wheel speed senser is not working properly when you are in all wheel drive the computer uses the brakes to keep the all wheels rolling at the same speed for good traction if one speed senser is reading that right side front wheel was going faster than the others it would activated that brake via the antilock brake system

2003 gmc sierra 2500 hd axial seal leaks


not enough detail for what end the leak is at. Front sounds strange for a pickup unless 4 wheel drive and then if the style is open shaft behind the brake rotor this would require dissemble of a few more things. If from the rear,which is the common repair, this is from a worn axle bearing on the axle shaft,which causes wear to the rear axle seal either located on the shaft before the bearing to the outside. Or the second option can be a axle seal located in the end of the axle housing. when you remove the axle shaft you would be looking at the end of the housing tube and see this seal. On older models ( My younger days ) they would also install one on the inner side of the housing next to the Gear Unit in the center of housing, ( also known as the PIG Unit ).need further info....

How to install a new rear axle in a 02 gmc sierra 1500


Jack it up ,pull the wheel on the bad axle side,remove the diff. cover,
remove the small pin holding the large pin in,slide the big pin out ,push the axle in from the wheel end,remove the c-clip in the axle and slide it out.
Would be wise to change the seal at the end af the axle tube at the same time. Slide the new axle in ,put the c-clip in the axle ,push it back in the carrier and reinstall the large pin and keeper pin,"Right Stuff" sealer makes a good cover gasket,3/8 drive for the fill plug,some gear iol and you're done,,not a bad job,no special tools required.

Rear Wheel Seal & Bearing on 1999 GMC Safari Van


Yes you do have to pull the axle and make sure you put everything back in the same place you removed it from. The ring and pinion shouldn't have to be bothered. You will have to remove the rear end cover to remove the axle. Its very easy to do. There is a pin inside the rear end that has to be removed to pull the axle. Pay attention to how you take it out and put it back the same way. It sounds as if you can do this with no problem.

2000 gmc both rear tire oil leakage.


You are correct, it's not brake fluid. Check the level in your rear axle, it sounds like you have bad seals in the axles allowing the rear differential gear oil to leak inside the brake drums.
This is a heavy weight oil, 80 or 90 weight. This leakage will ruin your brake pads, and if enough leaks out, your rear differential will blow. The seals aren't expensive, but it's a lot of labor to pull everything apart to get at the seals, plus new rear brakes. My Ford ( and I'm sure your GMC) require removal of the rear axles to change the seals. Good Luck! countrycurt0
