SOURCE: pinion seal leaking

check your rear diff vent if pluged clean it out and clean up the pinion seal.sometimes if the leak is caused by pluged vent and has not been leaking long once vent is clean sometimes the leak will stop.there is not a specific torque amount because it is rotational torque(how hard to turn pinion).there is a crush sleve on the pinion and if torqued too tight or too loose brg preload will be wrong and brg damage could result.mark and remove drive shaft.remove rear wheels,brakes,axles.so when turning pinion you dont have any drag from brakes or axles.mark the position of the yoke on the pinion.remove yoke,replace seal,reinstall yoke be sure to replace pinion nut.tighten nut until it takes the exact same amount of force to turn pinion as before taking original pinion nut off.hope this helps.

SOURCE: rear diff leak on yoke of 2000 explorer

Unless you are 'mud-running' this truck, you have more probs than the seal! And if it hasn't been topped up???? OMG The oil plug is on the front right side near the yoke. Your best bet is to get a complete rear axel from a wrecker. It will cost way too much to have bearings and what not replaced! Your best bet is to buy it installed. My quess is under $200!

Yes, but you will need to mark the yoke position and exact number of turns to remove the nut or you will change ring and pinion gear lash setting when re-installing it. You can use a large pipe wrench to hold the yoke still while tightening, or get a special tool made for that.

Change front differential seal


I take it that it is a pinion seal

remove the tail shaft

undo the pinion nut

( use an 1/2 " impact gun )

pull the yoke off

use a lever and pry out the old seal

fit new seal flush with the diff body face

refit the yoke and do the nut up till it is hard on the yoke plus about 1/8 of a turn or if there is a split pin to position the nut to the closest slot that the pin will fit in

( there are two types of spacers in diffs

one is solid and you can do the nut up to the desired tension

the other is a collapsible spacer which would have been collapsed to the correct dimension in initial assembly so the nut cannot be done up any tighter that what I suggest or you will over load the pinion bearings and burn them out

refit the tail shaft

What size socket is needed to remove rear pinion nut on 1997 jeep grand Cherokee limited with a5.2 v8


the rear axle front pinion DANA 44 or AMC?
the answer is not simple , why not read the FSM and unstand it all.
experpted....
  1. On 1990-98 models, set bearing preload as follows:
    1. The required pinion gear bearing preload torque is 1/2 ft. lbs. over the noted release torque as measured above.
    2. Rotate the pinion gear three or four times with a torque wrench attached to the yoke nut. Measure the amount of torque necessary to rotate the pinion.
    3. Using a holding tool, tighten the yoke nut in small increments and remeasure until the specified torque is obtained.

Rear differential seal


There are two places it can leak from. The rear differential cover or the pinion seal at the front of the differential. Both are easy to replace. The pinion seal will require a little more labor than the differential cover plate. You will have to remove the drive line and then break the pinion nut loose. Use a good impact wrench for this and a six point socket for that step. Then you will need to remove the yoke from the pinion gear. Should be able to tap it off. If not use a puller. Remove the old pinion seal with a flat tip screw driver by driving it through the lip of the old seal and push the screwdriver to the side and it will pop out. Clean the hole for the new seal. install the new seal and the yoke. Tighten the pinion nut. You will need to get access to a manual to check the bearing preload on the pinion nut. Then use a torque wrench to check for correct bearing preload. Re-install the drive line.

Oil leak on rear diff where drive shaft enters diff


That's called your pinion seal. You can change it but when removing the driveshaft yoke, it is ESSENTIAL that you count the exact number of turns and partial turns it took to remove the nut and that you only tighten it that exact number. Make a mark on the nut and the shaft then make a corresponding mark on the outside of your socket and on the housing so you can count. You can use a large pipe wrench to hold the yoke from turning when you are removing the nut. If you have any up and down movement at the yoke before you begin, you have a deeper problem such as a failed inner or outer pinion bearing. To replace the outer isn't difficult but if the inner has failed, you will either need a professional to press it on and off the shaft and to re- set the clearances or just replace the differential.(sometimes cheaper) Always check the fluid level when doing that job.

Rear axle leaks, want to replace seal where drive shaft connects to axle.


A continental is a front wheel drive car since 89. You must mean a town car. The pinion shaft seal is tricky because of a bearing preload issue that can be catastrofic if you get it wrong. I would recomend seeking the skills of a pro.

Changing rear axle seal on 78 ford f150. looking for diagram.


You probably have the 9 inch differential. If it is a rear wheel seal remove the tire and wheel assembly. Be sure to use a jack stand so you don't have the vehicle fall on you. Remove the 4 retaining bolts that hold the backing plate onto the housing. Pull the axle from the axle tube. It may be stubborn at removal. If it is the pinion seal remove the drive line. Remove the pinion nut that rests inside the yoke. Try to use an impact tool for easy removal. Once the nut is off the yoke willcome off. You may need a puller to help in removal. One the yoke is off remove the pinion shaft seal. Replace with a new seal. install the yoke and the washer and then the pinion nut. Re-torque the pinion nut to 150 foot pounds.

How to install yoke on the rear diff on a ford f350


remove driveshaft from yoke by removing bolts and possition to side. Measure the preload on the on the pinion nut if you don't have the tool to do this mark the nut and make mark on yoke to later align nut when reinstalling. remove nut. some times a slide hammer is required to pull yoke out. At thi time pinion seal should also be replaced. istallation is the reverse tap yoke in install nut and align marks previously made then reinstall everything else
