To remove any diff you have to remove the axles as they will hold the diff centre in the housing. Remove drive shaft and the bolts around the diff centre. you may need to break the gasket seal to get the centre to move. A workshop manual for the vehicle would be the best idea you would have.

SOURCE: Rear axle removal

Remove wheel, remove rear diff cover, remove small bolt that retains spider gear cross shaft in the carrier. Push axle in, remove "c" clip on end of axle and remove axle from housing. Reverse to replace. Only problem you may have is that sometimes small bolt is broken inside carrier. if broken you will need to drill a tiny hole into it and remove with tiny "easy out" or other similar device.
Do not turn carrier when shaft has been removed or spider gears will rotate and fall out!

Make sure that the vacuum hose connector is connected AND connected correctly at the transfer case and at the front differential. If that is all right and the front differential still doesn't engage, then you need to test the vacuum actuator at the front differential.

Hey will a 91 chevy blazer differential work for a 2000 chevy blazer


The differential will work ONLY if, obviously, it will fit, AND you NEED to make sure the gear ratio is the same. I'm not familiar with these types, but it will work fine assuming the gear ratio is the same.
If not, the differential you have replaced will try turning the wheels faster then the other one and this creates nothing but a big mess.

I hope this helps!

98 Blazer 4WD front axel falling out of differential


I would dismantle the axle, fit new thrust bearings and anything else that is worn/damaged and reassemble/adjust clearance gaps to it, according to the service manual.

My 1999 chevy blazer 4wd just quick working it engages but doesnt work? please help need answer fast


Check the actuator under the battery. make sure that it's working and pulling on the cable to lock the front hub. If it is and the front wheels are not locking then the clip at the front pumpkin (differential) may be broken or the fork that engages the axle. If everything looks good and the actuator is not working, inspect the vacuum line to the 4wd vacuum switch on top of the transfer case (drivers side) and then work your way to the vacuum line to the engine compartment. There is a T vacuum line by the ABS unit on the drivers side and inspect the lines there and the vacuum canister in the fender. Good luck and keep me posted and hope it's a simple vacuum line that went bad and not the front pumpkin.

I have a 1994 Chevy S10 Blazer bad reverse


The odds of two different transmissions having the same problem in reverse is astronomical. I think your problem is in the differential. Also check for the proper fluids and additives in the differential.

You do not need to remove it from the Truck for Repair. Just remember (Chalk the Wheels so it does not Roll!)
