Question about 1999 Ford Ranger SuperCab
I have a 99 ford ranger with the right rear wheel seal leaking how do i change it
Remember SAFETY FIRST. Jack up the right rear wheel, support the axle with a jack stand, remove the wheel, the brake drum, the banjo cover or differential cover. Allow the gear oil to drain out into you drain pan, carefully and slowly spin the ring gear (watch out not to pinch your fingers) look for a small bolt that is restraining the king pin, remove the bolt and then carefully slide the pin out !(don't spin the axles or ring gear while the pin is out) if you do the bushings and spider gers will move out of their places. After the pin is out then go over to the exposed axle and push it in until it stops. Go back over to the pumpkin and look inside, for a "U" shaped washer it will be on the end of the axle. Remove it from the axle. Now you can remove the axle and replace the wheel seal. Either rent a seal installing tool or carefully use a block of wood and evenly install the seal. If you kink or damage the new seal remove it and try it again. When you put everything back together put a little thread lock on the bolt for the king pin. dont over tighten it, could snap it. Let me know if I can help any more.

Jack up truck remove the right side wheel and brake drum you will most likely have to back off the brake adjustment to get the drum off. remove the bolts that hold on the cover over the center of the axle and drain fluid whith truck in neutral rotate the drive shaft you are looking for the bolt that holds in the pin for the spider gears (the 4 smaller gears in the center) remove bolt and slide out the pin be careful not to drop the gears once the pin is out push in on the right side axle shaft there is a "C" clip on the end of the axle that holds it in once the axle is pushed in you will be able to remove the clip once the clip is off slide the axle out of the housing remove the seal from the end of the housing and clean the housing there is a bearing behind the seal dont get any dirt in it install the new seal using a socket or any clean flat item that you can use th drive the new seal in. make sure seal goes in straight and sets flush if its not straight it will leak. clean and inspect axle for wear were the seal rides if there is a grove use some fine emery cloth to clean it up if the grove is real deep you may be able to get a wear sleeve from your local parts store or a axle rebuilder reassemble in the opasite order clean and apply a good rtv sealer to the outer edge of diff cover and reinstall cover. fill diff with the recomended gear oil if your truck has limited slip make sure you put in the friction modifier if you dont rear end will chatter and eventuly fail good luck let me know if you need anything else
