It is not a easy task for a do it your selfer,Evan if you can get the axles out, The new bearing have to be press on.So you end up paying a garge to press them on for you, End with the labour rates now a days they will charge you $100 just to press them on for you.

SOURCE: Rear Axle Bearing Replacement

That absolutely sounds like an axle (wheel) bearing. Jack up that corner of the truck and grab the top and bottom of the wheel, and shake like crazy. If you have any play whatsoever, it's a sign of a bad bearing (although you could have a bad one and not have any play - it would only mean the bearing isn't worn badly enough to cause looseness in the wheel).

You should be able to remove the axles without opening the diff up. If the axles have c-clips or snap rings on the ends inside the diff, you can usually get the axles out by dismounting them from the hubs and getting them free of all attachment except the diff, and then use a large flat-tip screwdriver as a pry bar. Use it right where the axle body mates to the diff, and lever it while you pull/yank/shake/swear at the axle, and you'll manage to pop the axle out of the diff. Sometimes it takes some time and profanity, but so far it's worked for me everytime.

SOURCE: rear axle bearings need replaceing I hear grinding

Go to Jeep and buy a bearings, seals, and collar. The bearing is held in place on the axle by a keeper collar. This must be cut off to get the old bearing and seal off. Use a wizz wheel to cut it and then whack it with a chisle

To get the axle out. Remove rear diff cover, and wheel and start taking apart. It's not a terrible job, but if you aren't very mechanically inclined, take it to a shop. Make sure you use the correct fluid in the differential.

SOURCE: rear axle bearings

There are 4 bolts for each rear axle. They are located behind the rear brake drums. Remove e-brake cable from rear drum and take off brake line.(carefully). I recomend draining and changing your rear differential fluid too, because if the fluid by run out of axle housing. also you should replace the seals for the axles of if you are changing the bearings. When you are done don't forget to bleed your brakes, and hooking up e-brake cable. I hope this answers your question.

Rear end noise when driving 2006 nissan altima


Your car has no "rear end" as people used to call them.
The "rear end" was a set of gears on the old rear wheel drive vehicles that put power to the back wheels.
Since you have a front wheel drive car, the problem you have is much easier to diagnose and repair.
You very likely have a bad rear wheel bearing or two on one side.
A way to tell is to spin the rear wheels one at a time and compare how much noise they make.
The bad one should be noisy.
I cannot think of any easy way to spin the rear wheels one at a time.
Perhaps using a "mechanic's stethoscope" might help.
Raise the car safely up in the air, crawl under the car, and place a long screwdriver tip against the center of the inside of the axle under the car where the wheel bearing are.
If you can't imagine where to put the screwdriver, get someone who knows to help you.
Put the handle in to your ear, and have someone spin the wheel by hand.
One should be noisier than the other.
Be blessed.

I have a 99 Subaru legacy. Recently after putting a new axle in it started thumping real bad. No matter what speed,hot or cold it thumps loud. Sounds like something is rubbing. I've had many people try...


You need to put it on a lift, or four jackstands, and start the car and put it in gear and look under the car while the wheels are turning. I am guessing one of the joints on the axle is stiff, causing the axle to flop a bit.

Rear wheels, do they use shims?


I believe moog or someone makes a shim that goes between the
axle housing and the wheel bearing to adjust the alignment.
However,if the rear camber is out(the wheels tip in at the top)
The coil spring will also cause this,if the back end is lower than
the front ,bet on the springs.
Easy way to tell,,just jack the vehicle up by the rear bumper in the
center of the back.
only a few inches ,if the wheels "stand " back up the coil springs are at fault.
The Firestone guys are correct I think but that is only a "band-aid"
on the real problem.

How to replace rear bearings in ve commodore


Commodore's are not sold here in the USA. So I'll give it my best shot on two different rear axle setups Since he is mechanically inclined, Look at it. That's what I do before any job. If you have CV axles in back, This is to easy, he will figure it out. Remove the axle nut, remove the bolts for the bearing. Most light duty vehicles are set up like this. Next is the straight axle. You have to remove the differential plate, on most. Remove the bolt to release the center pin.( some others, you have to pry out the axles). Remove the tires, push in on the axles and remove the C clip, pull the axles out. Use a bearing puller or chisel out the bearings. There are different set ups for nissan's and honda's and lexus. These you have to remove the brakes to unbolt the axle to get them out.

I was told I need a new rear barring and axle seal how do I change it?


You have to pull the cover off the rear end and let the fluid drain. Then there is a single small bolt that holds a pin in for the spider gears. You must remove the bolt, pin and spider gears. Then take the wheel and brake drum off the side you want to change. Once thats off you can push the axle in and a clip should fall off the axle inside the carrier. Then you can pull the axle out exposing the seal and bearing you need to change. Just use a seal pulling tool to pull the old seal out and the bearing is under that. It is pressed in so it can be hard to get out. Lots of times they have to be cut out. To put the new bearing back in just use a hammer and socket that is close to the size of the outter edge of the bearing. If you put the bearing in the freezer overnight it will go in a lot easier. Then tap a new seal in and put everything back together and refill the rear end with GL5 put the posi additive in if you have a posi trac rear end. Hope this helps good luck.

HOWLING NOISES


Did you check your Transmission fluid and your differential fluids make sure there up and I don't know if you checked your rear wheel bearings or not, You can usually tell a wheel bearing when you are driving the car at highway speeds and you go around a corner and it get quite a bit louder Depending on what way you are turning if your turning right and it gets louder it will usually be the right side front or rear. the left usually the left front or back. some cases I have even heard Axles making a Howling Noise. Please let me know what you come up with. And Thanks in advance If I helped you out any. Bear001
