Its a big job. You must remove the tires, brakes, backing plates. Remove the differential, slide out the axle, remove bearing. Get new axle, then reverse the procedure. Bearings are pressed in, and you will have to have a special tools. Might be better to have a local repair shop do it for you. Im guessing around $300 will get the job done.

SOURCE: removing the right intermediate axle shaft

i can only guess it is a 3.0l 4v well as far as the axle goes, the rh outer half shaft seperates at the splines on the intermediate shaft.
the intermediate shaft is the solid shaft from the trans to a bearing support bracket and ends after that. it is externally splined.
the rh axleshaft , inner cv joint, is internally splined.
to remove the rh axleshaft, remove the rh wheel and splash shield.
removed the lower balljoint pichbolt and seperate the lower balljoint front the steering knuckle. take the axle nut off and using a large brass drift or hardwood, drive the axle out of the bearing-hub assembly. DO NOT DAMAGE THE THREADS. also use some lubricant on the axle nut dissasembly. after the outer axle end is free, using the same brass drift or other, hit the inner cv joint and drive it off the intermediate shaft. inspect the splines closely because these fail and cause a no-drive condition.
then the mounint bolts for the support bearing and pull the intermedate shaft out, you will loose some fluid.

SOURCE: just had car dealership repair 1997 lincoln town air ride

Those Lincolns are notorious for that,I'd just get a set of coil springs out of a Crown Victoria cop car(junk yard)and swap them out.Done it many times,you can do it in about an hour,and they'll never leak down again.By the way,there's some O-rings in that system.Make some soapy water and spray every connection,just maybe you'll get lucky.

Hello lemofla: My name is Roger and I will help with your question. It is not necessary to remove the rear axle from the differential in order to replace the wheel bearing. This operation does require some special tools and alignment of the car to complete the job. You will need to remove the nut on the axle stub at the rear wheel hub. The rear brakes and spindle unit must be removed. The splash shield rivets must be drilled out so the shield is not damaged. You will need a press and snap ring pliers in order to remove the bearing hub from the old bearing. Once the hub is removed you will need to press the bearing out of the spindle.When all is reassembled the dust shield should be reattached with new aluminum rivets. Reinstall the spindle and brakes. Torque the axle nut to 221 (ft.lb.). It may also be necessary to push the axle shaft stub out of the hub with a puller as the axle can be stuck. As you can tell this is not a quick fix and does take special equipment. So if you do this yourself PLEASE be careful and pay close attention to the way things came apart and be sure to have the car realigned. Should you not realign the car it will not drive right and you will prematurely destroy the tire on the side worked on. Should you need further help please just ask. Please rate the answer. Thank You for using Fix Ya. Roger

Is there a correct way to insert rear wheel bearings on 2003 Lincoln town car


If it is the rear axle housing your installing the seal into
& the seal has an open side

Then the open side with the spring, goes into the housing
& the seal is at the outer end toward you

If you have a long bearing, it could have the seal as part of it
& it is to the outside

Your way of asking, the seal goes toward the wheel,not the diff

Where is the rear axle sensor on a 2000 lincoln navigator?


One of 2 places. First in the rear axle housing just above where drive shaft bolts. Or you have 1 wheel sensor on each wheel. Depending on the options is depending on what location you will find it.

2003 rear right axle shaft broke would that stop my tranmistion from shifting back and forth?


Having a broken axle shaft will let the diff spin freely, allowing the transmission to spin with no resistance. Resistance/pressure is what causes your transmission to shift. No resistance/pressure means no shifting.

I HAVE A 03 TOWNCAR WITH LEAKING OIL AT THE RIGHT REAR WHEEL. I NEED HELP ON HOW AND WHAT TO CHANGE. ALSO SHOULD I DO BOTH SIDES. THANK YOU JERRY SORRELL 337-842-0485


Leaking oil at the rear wheels can be one of two things, Easy fix is brake fluid, this would be the rear brake wheel cylinder leaking. Check your brake fluid tank under the hood for low fluid. If that is ok. Your leak may be your rear axle shaft seal. You need to remove the tire/wheel ether way. Jack up the car to pull the wheel, take your lugs loose while the tire is still on the ground, it is easy to take them loose this way. Take the EM: brake off, and jack up this side of the car. Your car could have disk or drums as both are offered on the 2003 Town car. Once the tire is off you will see if you have disk or drums brakes. If drums you will need to pull the drum off at access the brake cylinder to see if that is leaking or not. If drums you have to back off the brake shoes by the adjusting wheel thru a small access window in the back plate. If you have disk brakes the caliper is right there and will be easy to see if it is leaking. If you have determined it is the rear axle seal leaking, this may be best done by a shop, due to needing a few special tools to remove the axle and then reinstall a seal. You will need a slide hammer. If drum brakes you will have to remove the brake backing plate, this means shoes and all hardware, please take pictures and get as good focus as you can to see how everything goes back together. Once down to the axle mounting, remove the 4 bolts and attach the slide hammer and pop out the axle, catch any fluid that will leak out. Hope this helps FixYa up.

Replace axle seal on 2003 lincoln town car


You have to remove the differential housing cover.
Then turn the center housing until you can see the 5/16 bolt that holds the center pin that goes thru the spider and axle gears.
Remove the bolt and center pin,be careful that the gears stay in place.
Then push in on the axles to expose the c-clips on the end of the axles and remove the c-clip.
Then remove the axle.
