Rapeck: The Maxima rear axle bearings are manufactured as a hub assembly. There is a ring for the ABS which is fitted to the hub which must be removed and installed on the replacement hub.
A puller or other method is used to remove it and install it.
Aside from that, taking the caliper off and hanging it, removing the brake rotor and removing the axle nut. Torquing the axle nut is necessary. so there you have it...

How to replace rear axel wheel bearings on 97 ford explored


You will need an internal bearing puller. You will have to remove the rear axle by pulling off the differential cover. Then remove the bolt holding the spider gear cross shaft in place. Remove the shaft and spider gears. If your tire is already removed and brake drum is off, push in the axle and remove the circle clip. Once this is out you can slide your axle out you can remove the backing plate for your brakes and get to the bearing. Pull the seal out and pull out the bearing with a puller and slide hammer. Install the new bearing by hitting on the outside race ONLY. Install a new seal and install in reverse order.

I believe the wheel bearing is bad. Can I change


Use a slide hammer, bearing puller and adapter to remove the old axle bearing.

special tools are required if the bearings are also to be serviced.

I would say if you don't have the tools and the time, I would take it to a garage.

How do you change rear bearing on 2000 safari?


The rear axle bearing? I'm going to presume that's the bearing you're talking about and not the rear main bearing, so please take that into consideration if you would

You're going to have to jack up the rear of the van, remove the tire and drum. Then you have to place a drain pan under the rear differential and remove the cover. After the cover is removed spin the rear axle (the one with the tire off) to locate the pin in the very center of the differential. On the right side you will see an 8mm (5/16) bolt head.

When you remove the locking bolt (the 8mm) and slide the pin out DO NOT SPIN THE AXLE WITHOUT THE CENTER PIN IN PLACE. Push in on the axle with the bearing to be replaced and a "C" clip will fall out of the differential. SLIDE THE CENTER PIN BACK IN and screw in the locking bolt a few turns. Once the "C" clip slips out, you can pull the axle out. If you don't have a bearing puller, it's best to rent one. Insert the bearing puller and pop the bearing out.

Do i need any special tools too replace the gears


it does require some special equipment. most likely have the 9.25 axle in the truck which has adjusters on both sides of the differential that are threaded in the housing. these require a special tool to adjust and set proper backlash. also helpful to have a press with bearing pullers/installers. need a dail indicator to set backlash also

How do I replace the rear wheel bearing in a 2000 chevy blazer


I am sorry to tell you this, but you will have to take the Truck to a Rear End repair shop to do this. If you are very mechanically inclined and have all the specific tools like a slide hammer, bearing puller, bearing installation tool, etc. If you have tools like this, then I would get yourself the car manual. To replace the bearings you will have to remove the axles.
