SOURCE: remove front axle from differential on 2003 dodge ram

That works fine on a relatively new vehicle but one that has run in salt etc you'll save a lot of time if you remove the steering knuckle completey by separating lower ball joint and outer tie rod end ball joint and bring the whole steering knuckle to a bench to separate the hub/bearing. Soak everything with penetrant, loosen the bolts a few turns and try hitting right on the bolt heads. I also made a very sharp wedge from a chisel and rammed it hard on the other side to seoarate the hub. It will finally come apart then you'll see all the **** that was binding it due to an alumininum knuckle re-acting with a steel hub. Clean the hole and grease everything and fit new bearings

SOURCE: 2001 dodge ram 1500 4x4 vent hose on rear axel

The hose is only an extension to elevate the vent. Trucks have these so they can be braver about crossing axle deep water.. The plastic piece on the end is somewhat of a chk valve so the hose isn't open to dirt and road spray.It should be cliped to the frame to stay elevated.

SOURCE: I need a diagram of a rear axle for a 2001 dodge

You can do this with wheels hanging free or on ramps. Likely it may be better with wheels hanging though.but do not let the gears turn while you are working. Use a pipe wrench (a large one) to hold the pinion flange from turning. Mark the position of the nut in relation to the pinion shaft this mark is extremely important so don't use anything that may be wiped clean when working. Count the exact number of turns necessary to remove the nut (also very important).Mark the flange position so you can return it to its original position. Tap the flange off with a hammer, etc, pry out the seal and drive the new one back in with an appropriate seal driver In a pinch you can use a 2x4 with a hole in the center for the shaft to go through...I generally wipe a small amount of silicone sealer around the metal part of the seal to prevent seepage as well. The key is to keep the seal square with the housing while installing.
Use the marks you made to put the flange back on. put the nut and washer back on, counting the exact number of turns till you reach the exact number as when you removed it. Though most times it's not necessary, I always use some locktite on threads or use a new nut but with new nut you loose your reference mark. Hold the flange with the pipe wrench while re-installing. I also turn the nut about a 32nd of an inch or less, further than it was before removal.This will change the pinion depth but not so much that it will damage anything. DO NOT go further though!!! Don't forget to re-fill before using. In fact it is good to remove the rear cover first because if you find any metal in the lube perhaps you may want to or need to do something else as a repair.

SOURCE: 2001 ram 2500 how to remove the wheel hub assembly

Remove tire. Remove caliper and caliper holder. Remove rotor. Using a 36 MM socket remove center nut and slide hub off spindle. If hub does not come off freely use wheel puller to remove hub.Loosen front wheel lug nuts. Jack up and support front of truck with jack stands ( put them in the middle so both you can get to both sides of the truck). Remove tire, Remove caliper and caliper holder. romove rotor ( I had to use a 2x4 wedged between rotor and lower controll arm rubber stoper. then started truck and turned the wheel right or left to pop rotor free). remove 3 bolts that hold hub to knuckle. on the next step I used a steel pipe about 1 1/2 foot i think about 2 inches in diamater. wedge it between lower controll arm rubber stoper. then start truck turn the wheel left or right to let power steering pump do the work. It poped it off easy for me both sides in less than 1 hour. put alot of anti seize on the new hubs and bolts in case you have to replace them again. use a torque wrench to tighten all bolts. Great time to replace brakes as long as you are in the area. hope this helps.

SOURCE: Remove headlight assembly from a 2001 Dodge Ram

On the upper grill side of the headlight assy. there
should be 1 or 2 push pins that hold the seal on the
headlight assy to the front of the fender. Also check
for a guide/push pin on the inner top of the assy on
the outer fender side. That should be all there is to
hold the headlight in place. Hope this helps.

How do I remove the spindle axle on a 2001 dodge ram 1500 2wd? And what is the name of it exactly?

The spindle is what holds the front tires on. The axle is what holds the rear tires on. To remove the spindle, you have to remove the brake caliper first the remove the ball joint nuts. hit the spindle were the ball joints go in. The shock will release the ball joints. To remove the axles, you have to remove the differential plate, spin the differential until you see the bolt that locks the center pin in. remove both. push in the axle and remove the C clip. pull the axle out.
