SOURCE: remove front axle from differential on 2003 dodge ram

That works fine on a relatively new vehicle but one that has run in salt etc you'll save a lot of time if you remove the steering knuckle completey by separating lower ball joint and outer tie rod end ball joint and bring the whole steering knuckle to a bench to separate the hub/bearing. Soak everything with penetrant, loosen the bolts a few turns and try hitting right on the bolt heads. I also made a very sharp wedge from a chisel and rammed it hard on the other side to seoarate the hub. It will finally come apart then you'll see all the **** that was binding it due to an alumininum knuckle re-acting with a steel hub. Clean the hole and grease everything and fit new bearings

SOURCE: Cause of noise in front differential of 1997 Subaru Legacy Outback.

there is a plug on the shaft-side of the differential. Using a ratchet remove the plug and with the engine OFF, stick your finger inside the hole and you should get fluid just below the threads of where the plug goes in.

SOURCE: 2003 chevy suburban front axle noise

Worn side bearings is where the noise is coming from and might as well do both sides, I used replace them in about 2-4 hours, depending on where Murphy happened to be. Disconnect both side inner CV joint, front prop shaft and the 4X4 actuator line. If you want to drop the front pumpken. Not sure if you have enough room if you want to change the bearing without removing the pumpken from the frame. You should see when you disconnect the CV shaft.

The front diffs are toys compared to the rear, if you use auto4wd too much there are bearings in your tranfer case that are similar to the side bearings in the front diff. In both appearance and durability and soon you'll replace those too.

Good luck and keep me posted.

What is a differential on a 1997 Ford Escort


The differential is inside and part of the transaxle. A transaxle has both the transmission and the differential together as a single unit. On rear wheel drive cars, the differential would be in the rear end- the large center case on the rear axle. With front wheel drive, the differential is incorporated within the transaxle. It is used to keep the front drive wheels turning properly during steering turns.

The differential uses the same oil or fluid as in the transmission/transaxle case-it is all the same piece, not serviced or flushed separately from the transmission, or transaxle as front wheel drive cars are called.

Taking oil pan off my 1997 model chevy with a 4.3 vortec motor


You have to remove both engine mount bolts, then jack the engine up until it starts lifting the truck. The pan still will not come out until you pry it out. Be careful. You will also have to pry it back into place. If it is four wheel drive, remove the front differential first.

Why won't my front differential engage? 1988 Chevy


Ok I know this question is old but for any one else who has this problem, I want to clear some info up. GM did not use vacuum on the 4x4 systems on the full size series. Only used on the S series (S10, S Blazers). Here is how to accurately trouble shoot these problems with the full size 4x4. Remove the front actuator from the front axle ( keep it plugged up and let it hang). Put the T-Case in 4x4 Hi or Lo doesn't matter. Turn key on (don't start the engine) . Now check the actuator to see if it has extended. If (no) now check the plug to see if you have current . If you have current to the plug, change the actuator. Problem solved. If no current to the plug. Check for broken wires ( fix if any) If no broken wires. There is another switch on the T-Case that sends power to the actuator Replace it.. Back to the actuator.... If everything checked out and actuator works. With the T-Case locked in 4x4, try to turn the front drive shaft by hand. With the T-Case locked in 4x4 you shouldn't be able to turn the drive shaft. If drive shaft doesnt turn the T-Case is in good shape and the problem will be in the front differential. In these cases the most common problem is an exploded thrust washer. At this point the front differential needs to be rebuilt. Back to the T-Case..... With the T-Case locked in 4x4, if the drive shaft spins, the problem will be in the T-Case and at this point the T-Case will need rebuilt......... I hope you get the information you need to troubleshoot the GM 4x4 issues.

It WONT lock frontend in when shifted into 4H or 4L. 4WD lights dont come on either


my Chevy C2500 has an electronic actuator / solenoid in the front differential they burn out frequently. They electronically lock up front differential. I bought a manual actuator from a 4X4 shop for $250.00 no more problem and no worry that if I had bought another electronically operated one it might burn out way back in the outback

How to change 4x4 actuators on a 1995 chevy k1500 truck. I've located 1 out of 2 actuators but the second one appears to be in the transfer case maybe? HELP


I had this problem in the middle of nowhere. On the passenger side of the front differential, there is a "thermal Actuator" that screws into the diff. This is what engages the front axle. I replaced mine and 4 wheel works again. Don't know about a second. Be sure to remove the wire connector before removal or your wiring connector.

I have a 1993 chevy 1/2 ton pickup with 5.7 liter and I cant get the four wheel drive to work when i put it into four whell the rear wheels alternate when slipping as they should but nothing from the front...


First of all try checking your fuse box and make sure the 4X4 fuse is still good. If the fuse is good, move the shift lever for the 4X4 on the floor into 4 high, then get a friend to watch underneath when you move the vehicle a little bit to see if the front driveshaft is turning. If the front shaft going to your differential is turning the problem is probably the electric actuator on the differential.
