If you have a Chevy diff, you have "c-clips" These clips are located inside the diff. Remove diff cover. Remove lock bolt that holds cross shaft in place. Slide cross shaft out. Push axles inward and remove C-washers. Remove axle shafts being carefull not to damage axle seals. Question Why are you taking this apart?

Did you pull the pin at differential just to be sure? If it's non-"C" clips, you'll need a slidehammer attached to hub, over studs & use wheel nuts to hold it on there. Get er done !

Cannot get rear axle out of rear end


most axles you have to take off the differential cover and there will be a large pin that goes through the center of the carrier. this pin usually has a small bolt holding it in place. remove bolt and pin and that should allow you to push axle in enough to remove the c-clip on the end of the axle.then you can pull axle out of housing.

Rear Axle


inside the rear end,you need to remove the rear inspection cover from the rear end.have it jacked up and blocked for safety,and put it in neutral,you will see a slide bar in the center of the rear end it goes in between the side gears.rotate the drive shaft around until you see the end of the round slide that has a 5/16 bolt going thru it. loosen that bolt but don't remove it yet,rotate the drive shaft until the slide bar is almost down at the bottom,but just enoughup to be pulled out and clear the housing.use your left thumb to hold slide bar from falling out while you remove the 5/16 bolt,now let the slide bar fall out to you while your pulling on it.
"VERY IMPORTANT"= don't let any one turn any rear wheels while the bar is out or you will sping the spider gears right up and out of the rear end.
Now have someone push the axle in towards you,when they do a C clip will fall of the axle,you will need to recover it with your fingers or a magnet ,You can now pull the axle out,you will see the groove the C clip was in,When you reinstall push the axle in onlt try not to turn it,you might have to a little to line the splines up,when the axle is pushed in the whole way,insert the C clip and you hold it there while someone pulls outward on the axle that will put the C clip in it's seat,then reinstall the slide bar,you may have to wiggle it a little or just barely turn the drive shaft to get it to go in,reinstall the 5/16 bolt and tighten,install new cover gasket and refill.good luck

I'm trying to remove the left rear axle so I can replace the outer oil/greese seal. Seems pretty straight forward, however I'm not totally sure where the ''C'' c;ip is located that I need to remove to...


Have someone try to move the axle in and out while you watch the end of the axle inside the spider gear carrier. The 'C' clip should be near the end and will drive off with a small punch. If there is no clip, then the axle/bearing is retained by a plate that is bolted at the end of the axle housing behind the wheel. The bearing and seal should be removed and replaced with the aid of a shop press.
