I need to remove my rear axle shaft

I have removed the cover and I am now baffled on how to remove carrier pin and then side gears to get to clips to pull the shaft. I have worked on my chevy and ford rear ends before but the way the ring gear in the nissan goes over the pin i am stumped

    Did you look in there and verify that there are clips on the inner ends of the axles? Usually if there isn't access to the spider gear cross shaft retainer, you have pressed on axle bearings and do not need to do anything except unbolt axle from the flange on the backing plate.

These rear ends don't use c-clips on the axle shafts to remove the axles.

It must be done by removing the axle at the backing plate area.

Plenetry gear system is broken in rear axle whats Problem


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!

Trailblazer rear axle removal


It is pretty easy. just unbolt the rear cover of the diff there is a cross pin that holds your spider gears in(located in the center of your carrier). Remove the the small bolt that holds this cross pin in and slide the pin out. Then you can slide your axle shaft inboard to remove the c-clip(after you remove the tire and brake drum). Once the c-clip is off just slide the axle shaft right out of the axle. Pry out the old seal and pop in the new one. Recommend using a 2x4 or such to install the new seal evenly.

Need to know where lock pins are for the rear axle .need to pull axle


The lock pins you are looking for is actually a "c" clip that is on the inboard end of the axle inside the diff housing. There is a drift pin that holds the cross shaft for the spider gears in the carrier at one end. You need to drive out the pin and then slide out the cross shaft. Push in on the axle and you can then remove the clip. Don't turn the carrier after removing the cross shaft or the spider gears will walk out. If you need to turn it, put your finger in the hole and turn gently so you don't hurt your finger.(trans in neutral and both rear wheels off the ground.)

How do you change rear axle seal in a chevy pickup


To change the rear seal, yo will need to raise and support the rear of the vehicle. Remove the wheels and drums or rotors (depending on drum or disc brakes.) Remove the rear differential cover bolts and the cover (have a drain pan under the differential) You will likely need to turn the driveshaft so the center pin bolt is acessible at the back or the differential. This is a 5/16" (or 8mm) bolt that is on the right (passenger) side of the differential carrier assembly. I recommend a new bolt be installed here on reassembly. Once the retaining bolt is out, slide the center pin out enough to allow the axle shafts to be pushed in toward the center of the diff. to remove the "C" clips that retain the axle shafts in the carrier assembly. Be careful if you happen to pull the center pin all the way out not to allow the carrier assembly (has the ring gear mounted on it) to turn, as this can rotate the spider gears out of alignment causing a headache on reassembly. With the "C" clip removed the axle shaft can be pulled out of the diff. Inspect the bearing area of the shaft for rust, pitting, or scoring. Remove the old seal and carefully install the new one. Reverse proceedures to install. Take care to note the "C" clips and center pin bolt are properly reinstalled. Fill with 2.5 to 3 quarts of rear axle grease for you vehicle.
good luck.

How do i remove the rear axels on a 2001 dodge ram 1500 4x4 3.6 v8


this is for front axle removing.you have too take off the wheel then the brakes, then you have to remove the 3 bolts on the back of the wheel assembly and lightly take a mallet and tap the wheel assembely out. and it all just pulls out after that. ------------- for rear axle . for the axle shaft,jack the rear of the truck up take off the wheels and brake drums.make sure truck is securly supported with jackstands.remove the differental cover locate the bolt that holds the cross pin in the carrier.remove the bolt,slide out the cross pin.push the axle in towards the center and remove the c-clip holding the axle in.remove the axle shaft carefully so not to damage the bearings or seal. ----------- You need to remove a bolt inline with the axles on the spider gears which holds the center pin in place. Remove the pin, rotate the spider gears to the other side. Now move the axles inward to reveal the c-clips and use a hemostat to remove. Of course the the truck is up on jacks with the tires removed. this will help.
