Question about 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee
What do I need to fix the ball berrings falling out of the left differential in the front.
Jeep will still roll in park with a broken front cv joint because of the viscous coupler in the transfercase. use the emergency brake to hold it in place until you get it fixed.

Or: I'll bet ya a buck you have a selec-track 4x4. in which case, you need to replace the c/v joint on the bad axle. The joint is encased in a rubber boot... on yours it's likely torn wide open.
To remove, first put the spare on that wheel, or remove the center cap from the wheel that's there (small screws on the inside of wheel. Once back on car, with car lowered on ground, remove center nut that holds the axle into the hub. Put the nut on backwards and give it a smack with a hammer to get the axle spline moving free in the hub. Then, lift car up, remove wheel, remove brake caliper & rotor. suspend caliper with a piece of wire or good string so as not to put tension on hose. There are three bolts that hold the hub to the steering knuckle. Remove them using the access hole in the wheel flange. Or, some are removed from behind the steering knuckle. (locate them using bolt holes in hub on wheel side as a location reference. the bolt heads are usually 12point.) Use a chisel and lots of wd40 or other solvent, working on seperating hub from knuckle till it comes free. (place chisel at the parting line and use a hammer. Once it begins to come out you can use big screwdrivers to work it the rest of the way out. (careful not to damage it) Remove the backwards nut and slide the bearing hub off.
You should be now able to slide the axle out through the bearing hole. Axles with joints assembled are now just about as cheap as just the joint alone. It's much less work to get one. To re-assemble, sand off and lube the bearing hole and mating surface on hub. before replacing bearing, also lube the spline on the axle joint with good grease. Remainder of the job is just putting back what you removed. Torque center nut to 175lbs, replace cover and cotter pin if used on your axle
