To replace pinon bearing you need to pull wheels and the brake drums off next pull cover off the back of the rear end (make sure you have a drain pan under rear end) next turn dive shaft till you see a small bolt remove bolt pull center pin out push axle in pull c clips out pull axels out remove four bolts holding ring and spider gears remove gears assembly next remove drive shaft remove bolt from pinon push pinon in remove seal and bearing
have to pull the diff cover,remove the small bolt that holds the pin,remove the pin . With wheels off ,push the axle in remove c-clip ,slide axle out. You will need a slide hammer to remove the bearing.(or pull both sides and drive out with a long piece of rebar from the other end)
Be sure to check the axle surface where the bearing rides,if is damaged the parts stores sell a repair bearing that makes the rollers ride in a different spot on the axle.(called "axle savers")
if the seal (s) is leaking you may have a bad bearing... to change.. remove the rear end cover, reach in pull the c clip on left or rt side. pull the axel out the side, use bearing puller to pull the old bearing, install new replacement bearing seal, put in axel, replace clip, reinstall rear cover, sealing properly, fill with rear gear lube to level of fill hole. get a chiltons manual for pictures and more detailed help.
No not both sides. The rear end of your car has a normal standared rear axel. it has many seals but if the ones at the wheel hubs on the outside of the axel behind the tires are leaking it would only show on one side or the other. Also most leaks in this area is due to a bad wheel bearing.
Open the rear end, and take out keeper that holds the axel in..
if you push on the axel a bit and feel it slide into the rearend, that will show you the keeper at the other end...
Remember to have a catchpan under the rearend when takeing the cover off, as the fluid will drain out, and make sure to replace the fluid, (can't tell you how many get in a hurry and forget that part) Check with Ford to make sure what type fluid it is, (synth mix, full synth, or standard 80/90)
do u mean the axle has "play" when u grab the tire and wiggle it up and down?? if it has play, then it propbably needs an AXLE SEAL AND AXLE BEARING.you will have to carefully inspect the axle itself where the bearing rides for any gouging or damage. THIS JOB requires a decent amount of mechanical skill. 1ST you need to remove the rear end COVER and drain out the gear oil into a drain pan.2ND remove the brake caliper and rotor . 3RD spin the" ring and pinion " around until u see a 5/16 bolt that passes thru from the pass. side to the drivers side. u have to remove this bolt. u will need to "hold "the gears from turning in order to break loose this bolt. 4TH remove this bolt and slide out the large metal ""PIN" that 'divides" the rear end in half. NOW CAREFULLY WITHOUT TURNING THE REAR END SPIDER GEARS,PUSH IN THE AXLE TOWARDS THE INSIDE SO U CAN REMOVE THE "C-CLIP" AT INNER END OF AXLE. now u can slide out axle and youll be able to replace seal and if needed axle bearing. let me know if u need more info.
Sounds as though your bearing could be bad, does your Differential have a cover on the back ?If so you'll have to remove it and remove the retainer rings (1) on each side of the inner axel .Then you should be able to remove the axels,but still may have to remove the Brake back cover also .Notice how much gear lube is left in the housing when you remove the cover . Don't forget to also replace the dust seals as well .
