ok then here is the procedure
1 take off the axle nut
2 on the lower control arm you will find a large nut and bolt i belive the nut is a 21mm and the bolt side is an 18mm. this bolt is the one at the knuckle near the brakes. remove it
3 you will need to pull the knuckle out of the way or a helper to pull the knuckle out of the way so you can slip the axle out of the knuckle.( its a tight fit but there is room to slip it out.)
4 use a pry bar to pop the axle free of the diff. hosing its held in by a spring clip make sure the clip comes out with the axle if it gets stuck inside you will have to fish it out.
5 use a pry bar or screwdriver to pry seal out of housing then use a flat object that contacts the entire rim of the new seal so it can evenly be installed with out getting smashed and tap it in with a hammer. ( a good trick here is to use some grease and pack it into the new seal where the spring is this will prevent the spring from being shocked out of the seal during instalation . the spring keeps tension on the rubber in the seal so it stays tight to the shaft it is sealing.)
6 then revers the above steps. also make sure you are using the right gear lube it will most likely be 75w-140 but make sure you check your owners manual will tell you if it doesnt say on the diff cover. you can cause a lot of damage if you put in the wrong thing. and make sure you feel the axle spring clip snap into place.
as a note there are two types of axle seals that are used on these so if the new seal looks different than the old seal then the folliowing will be important to you.the seals on these have been redesigned so if you axle has what looks like a cup or dust cover pressed onto the shaft where it goes into the diff the new style does not use this and it will prevent the axle form going in all the way so the spring clip will not lock in and you will have a leak. so you will have to remove it and install the axle without it.

The problem is most likely a damper door actuator that has a stripped gear. I replaced mine in my Explorer and it appears to be a common problem. To replace it you must remove the side panel which is held in by the door seals and spring clips. This will expose the rear a/c unit. Then you must remove the bolts securing the a/c housing to allow you to pull the housing away from the fender to get access to the actuator. The actuator is bolted on and will require a small socket to remove it. You can hear and feel the actuator thumping to determine which one it is. When replaced, the actuator shaft must be aligned with the damper door which is inside the housing. The part number for mine was YL5Z*19E616*AA and lists for $68.18 at the Ford dealer. I found it later online for $35.

lift the tailgate
unscrew the 2 hex screws with a socket wrench.
the entire back light fixture will now be able to be poped out. Pull slowly and firm on the fixture it will pop free.
Behind the fixture you will see the wires leading to your light bulb turn a quarter turn to loosen and remove the socket. change the bulb and repeat the steps backwards to replace the light.

SOURCE: how to change a tone
The tone ring on the front is part of the CV drive-shaft (also called the halfshaft) and can only be changed by replacing the entire shaft. If you are unfamiliar with replacing drive-train and suspension components, it is best not attempted without experienced help.
The tone ring on the rear of a front wheel drive model can be replaced by removing the rear wheel hub, but on all wheel drive models, front and rear tone rings are similarly integral to the shaft.
It is unlikely that a broken tone ring would be the cause of what one might assume, in this case, is an anti-lock braking problem. Most likely causes are usually associated with the sensors that count the reluctor teeth on the spinning tone ring, or the control module(s) that process the sensor inputs and translate them into the ABS HCU (Hydraulic Control Unit) functions.
If that is the case, please refer this to a licensed technician. This is pretty much the only way we have of earning our income.
