SOURCE: 1991 chevy silverado 1500 2-wd leaking oil seals, rear end.

the outer bearings can be driven in using a suitable Very Large socket. Removing the old ones either requires a puller or a cutting torch. I use either depending on the state of the bearings.
when driving new ones in, make sure

  1. your socket wont jam in with the bearing
  2. you only hit against the outer bearing shell
  3. you keep it very straight
  4. hit it til you hear a resounding solid clunk as the bearing reaches full insertion.
  5. you fit a new oil seal
  6. use a block of wood across the oil seal face to protect it as you knock it in - keep it straight!
To answer the other question, yes you do have to remove the driveshaft to replace the oil seal. the Diff ack-plate has to be removed, the locking horseshoes from the ends of the driveshaft, & the wheels. It takes about 1 hour to remove them & clean the backplate. about another to reassemble.
I charge about $140 plus parts

SOURCE: Replaced rear axle pinion bearing and seal, need

There is no torque specs,this nut has to be tightened back like it was ,the best thing to do,was,to late now,is to use a torque wrench to remove the nut,and remember the torque,and when replacing it,torque it back to that spec,the reason being,there is a crush sleeve between the front pion bearing ,and the rear pinion bearing,and it has to be crushed to a certain amount,to aquire deepness into the ring gear,anyway just give it about 25 lbs torque,any more the crush sleeve will crush even more and the deepness of the pinion will be too much.

SOURCE: Leaking rear axle seal

Yes...You need to also remove the cross shaft for the spider gears (retained by either a bolt or drift pin) and then push the axle inward to remove the "c" clip on the end.
It isn't difficult but you may want to get yourself a haynes or chiltons manual to help a bit.You need to take care that after the cross shaft is out that you don't let the spider gears walk out of the housing.

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.

How to remove axel on 2002 cadillac deville


this procedure is for replacing the axle bearing, it has all the info u need to do whatever it is u are doing with the axle removed.

Instructions Things You'll Need:
  • Floor jack
  • Jack stands
  • Axle puller
  • Set of 3/8-inch drive sockets
  • 3/8-inch drive ratchet
  • Needle nose pliers
  • Set of ¼-inch drive sockets
  • ¼-inch drive ratchet
  • Hammer
  • Lug wrench
  • Tube of RTV silicone
  • 2 bottles of rear axle oil
  • Bucket
  1. Step 1 Raise and support the rear of the vehicle. Remove the wheels. Remove the rear cover on the third member or axle. Place the bucket under the rear to catch the fluid. Remove the brake drums if the vehicle has drum brakes.
  2. Step 2 Rotate the outside axle until the center carrier is in a position where the small 8 mm or ¼-inch bolt is at 7 o'clock and clear of the housing so that it can be removed. This is the bolt holding the center through pin that runs through both spider gears. Position the carrier so that when the bolt is removed, the pin can be dropped straight down without contacting the housing.
  3. Step 3 Remove the center pin and lay it in the cover with its retaining bolt. Do not rotate the carrier with the pin out, since the pin is what holds the spider gears in place. If the carrier is turned, the spider gears would need to be adjusted so that they line up again with the hole for the through pin.
  4. Step 4 Push both axles in toward the carrier. This is now possible because the through-pin has been removed. This will expose the C-clips that hold the axles from coming out of the carrier. Remove the C-clips with the needle nose pliers and lay them in the pan. Pull the axles out of the housing and stand them up.
  5. Step 5 Remove the outside axle bearings and seals with the axle puller. The axle puller has several ends of different sizes; pick the one that fits through the center of the bearing. The axle puller is a sliding hammer with a T-end that can swivel. When the puller end is inserted through the bearing, rotate it slightly to get the T-end to swivel up and grab the bearing. Using the slide hammer, hammer the bearing and seal out of the housing.
  6. Step 6 Clean the housing surface where the bearing will be seated. Place the new bearing into the housing as far as it will go, and make sure it goes in straight. Place the old bearing on top of the new bearing and hit it with the hammer to drive the new bearing in. Tap it on in a circular pattern and continue until there is a resounding difference in sound as the bearing contacts the lip in the axle (it will sound more solid). Remove the old bearing.
  7. Step 7 Install the seal by tapping it carefully on four corners, avoiding the rubber part of the seal, until it is seated. Do not bend the housing or it will leak.
  8. Step 8 Install the axles and push them in all the way. Insert the C-clips on the ends of the axles and pull the axles back out to seat the C-clips in the carrier. Insert the pin back into the carrier through the spider gears and install the small retaining bolt to keep the pin in.
  9. Step 9 Clean the face of the housing and the axle cover where the gasket material will seal. Use brake cleaner or alcohol to remove all the oil from the surface to be sealed. Smear some RTV silicone sealant on the axle cover around the edge in a continuous line about a quarter of an inch thick. Allow the cover to sit until the RTV silicone sealant cures to the point that it will not transfer to the fingers when touched. The proper terminology is when it "skins," or is still wet inside but starting to dry on the outside; this way it will stay in place.

Rear end seal leak


You must be refering to the side seals. common problem. the actual problem with those rear ends is the air breather, which cloggs up and that's when your seals blow out, because the pressure in the rear end has nowhere to go and so your seals get blown out. I just did a set on Monday. Anywho, you will need some specialty tools for this. You will need to remove both rear brake assemblys (rotors, calipers). Than look on the other side of the backing plate, there you will see 4 big nuts that hold the backing plate on the axle tube (rear end). Remove those 4 nuts and that's where specialty tools become usefull. You will need a slide hammer. You need to attach the slide hammer onto the axle right by the studs. Use factory whel nuts to attach. Remove axle out of the housing with few good slides of the slide hammer. Once the axle is out, you need to remove the snapp ring, then cut the colar off and remove colar, then remove the old bearing and thats where the seal is. Big help doing this job is a pneumatic air hammer, which helps you remove the stuff off the axle shaft and the slide hammer to remove the axles out. You will need 2 seals, 2 bearings and 2 collars. You may also need the plates with the studs, which had the big nuts, that you removed in first steps of this repair. Kind of a job for someone that has been working on cars and has the tools to do it. Good luck. Oh ya, change the breather and the fluid in the rear end.
