U must remove the axles, to do this pull the diff cover off, then remove the pin that retains the large center pin that is between the spider gears, pull the axles out far enough to clear diff carrier, remove left and right carrier bearing caps, mark the adjustment sims and caps (very important) as to which side they came from, u will most likely need to have a press to remove and install the new carrier bearings, they are pressed on, when u reinstall put the shims back in with a brass hammer or large brass drift punch, they are cast iron and break very easily, make sure to use the proper gear lube, do not overfill, also replace the axle seals and check the axle bearings for wear, I will bet they are worn out as well, the rule really is that if one bearing goes south then the metal from that will ruin the rest of the bearings, in the shop we recommend all differential bearings be done, if not we can't guarantee the job.

How 2 put in pioion bearing 96 mazda B2300 truck

You posted here meaning you have access to the internet, search YouTube and you should find a video showing you step by step. Or search for a forum for that vehicle and see if maybe the members have done it and provide great details. Lots of great info to be found that way.

I have a 98 mitsubishi montero sport having it serviced mecanic said carrier bearing is going out. I thought thayt was just on big trucks with split drive shafts. is there one on my suvh

You will need a blanket and a flashlight.
One way to get the truck high enough to look under it is to drive either the right side wheels or the left side wheels up onto a curb.
Then get under it and look halfway between the end of the transmission and the rear axle pumpkin.
A carrier bearing is the round thing about half way between these two.
Just a little more information.
The carrier bearing is found roughly about the place where the back of the front seat is above you. The carrier bearing is likely the size of a breakfast cereal bow,l, .
The pumpkin is the big gear holder exactly in the middle between the rear wheels, and is about the size of a large dinner plate.
Your vehicle is old enough to need one if you have not had it replaced yet.
These normally will give you some notice of their failure, such as a vibration or noise of some kind, be not in every case.
Be blessed.

What tools do i need to remove a 1996 lexus es 300 cv axle from the transmission

You will need a lug wrench for the wheel, a jack, a jack stand, 14mm socket and ratchet for disconnecting the lower ball joint, a 32mm socket and impact wrench for the axle nut, a dead-blow (no-bounce) hammer to tap axle from steering knuckle, and then there are two options.

Left (driver) side: a pry bar to pop the axle from the differential (pry between diff. housing and axle knuckle. This can be really stuck so don't be afraid to put some power to it!)

Right (pass.) side: snap ring pliers to remove snap ring from carrier mount (rear engine mount houses this carrier bearing), and i think a 14mm socket or wrench to loosen the jam bolt that keeps the bearing outer race from spinning.

Good luck and be safe!!

How to replace wheel bearing on 1996 ford explorer

Is it a 2 wheel drive of 4 wheel drive explorer?? I'm going to take a shot in the dark and go with 4x4. Remove the cotter pin and axle nut. Then jack up and brace the vehicle. Remove the front tire (since you said wheel bearing and not axle bearing), caliper, caliper bracket, and the three bolts on the back of the spindle that hold in the bearing and hub. Slide the hub and bearing out. May take a couple of taps with a hammer.
