Take the brake drums off and push the axle in towards the differential, it should go in about a half inch or so, which will give you enough room to get the c-clips off. Try using a magnet

SOURCE: how do I remove the C-clips on a 10 inch rear diff

once the pin is out, push the axle in towards the middle of the car, the clips may now come out, even fall out maybe. remove the clip, then pull the axle out. be sure that the axle bearing surface is good, any pitting or grooves and the axle and bearing and seal will need replacement.

SOURCE: clanging noise rear and rear don't pull

The axle probably lost a keeper ring on the inside of the differential and the pieces may be going through the differential and ring&pinion gearing making the noises you hear. You will need to drain the oil out, find the broken pieces, and inspect all gearing for broken/damaged teeth, and for any noisy bearings. Flush the case out with cleaning solvent. Re-insert the loose axle after cleaning and inspecting it well--especially the interior end. Replace the keeper (new) on the axle end inside the differential spider gearing. Inspect the brakes on the loose axle side for any oil deposits and for any damage that might have been caused when the axle came out. If the differential is badly damaged, it might be cheaper to find another rear end in a wrecking yard. Hope this helps!

SOURCE: replacing a rear wheel bearing

To remove the rear axle to replace a bearing you have to remove the rear differential cover and remove the small retaining bolt holds the spider gear shaft in place and then slide this shaft out far enough to remove the "C" shaped axle shaft retaining clip. Once this clip is off then the axle can be slid out and the bearing & seal replaced. Make sure that none of the spider gears or thrust washers behind them get out of place and you should use a new retaining bolt when reassembling the differential components as they come [or should come this way] with thread locker to prevent them from coming loose.

94 gmc sonoma fuse box location


Hi Charles, sorry but I don't know....but it can't be very difficult to find. First open the bonnet (hood) and look for a plastic box with a cover and maybe two or three clips holding down the top cover. It may not be square, in fact it may have a shape with a number of angles. there will be wiring looms going into it. There could be one under the bonnet and another inside the cabin. That one will usually be behind a cover or locker of some type. On some vehicles its mounted behind the glove locker on others behind a panel. I know I haven't been much help but 'I know you can find it if you look. Regards John

How do I remove the rear axle to replace the seal 1996 jimmy


You will have to remove the differential cover on the rear end, in the center of the gear cluster you'll have to rotate your axle until it exposes the ends of the axle shafts, push in the axles as far as you can from the brake pad assembly area, then, there this a C clips that slips into a groove on the end of the axle, you'll have to reove the C clip to pull out the axle.
