No need to open the differential and remove anything. Remove the caliper and rotor. Remove the four nuts on the backside of the backing plate. Use a slide hammer and pop the axle out. If you don't have a slide hammer, you can use a chain. Attach one link of the chain over a lug stud and install a lug nut, give yourself about two feet of slack and attach another link on another stud. Grab the chain where it hangs the lowest (place a rag over it cause this part may hurt)and give it a good outward snap. I hope this helps.

How to replace rear axel wheel bearings on 97 ford explored


You will need an internal bearing puller. You will have to remove the rear axle by pulling off the differential cover. Then remove the bolt holding the spider gear cross shaft in place. Remove the shaft and spider gears. If your tire is already removed and brake drum is off, push in the axle and remove the circle clip. Once this is out you can slide your axle out you can remove the backing plate for your brakes and get to the bearing. Pull the seal out and pull out the bearing with a puller and slide hammer. Install the new bearing by hitting on the outside race ONLY. Install a new seal and install in reverse order.

How to replace backing plates on rear of 2001 silverado


You will have to pull the axles to remove the backing plates.Loosen the differential cover until most of the fluid drains,remove the cover.Rotate the diff until you can get at the small bolt that retains the spider gear pin.Remove the pin,push the axles in,remove the C-clips.You can now slide the axles out.(You might as well replace the axle seals while you're at it).If you clean the cover and diff housing thoroughly,you can put a small bead of silicone gasket maker to reinstall it.

Leaking rear axle seal


Yes...You need to also remove the cross shaft for the spider gears (retained by either a bolt or drift pin) and then push the axle inward to remove the "c" clip on the end.
It isn't difficult but you may want to get yourself a haynes or chiltons manual to help a bit.You need to take care that after the cross shaft is out that you don't let the spider gears walk out of the housing.

How to remove rear axle 03 chevy silverado


You will have to remove the rear end plate off of the back of the rear end. Then turn the carrier untill you see a big silver pin that goes through the spider gears. Those will be 4 small gears in the rear end carrier. If you look at the right side of the carrier were the pin goes through it you will see a small bolt head, That bolt goes through the carrier and holds the pin in place. Remove that bolt then reach up in the rear end housing and push the pin towards you untill it comes out. ( DO NOT TURN ANYTHING AFTER YOU REMOVE THE PIN) are the spider gears will fall out.


Now get someone to push the axel in while you are looking at the 4 small gears in the housing, when they push the axel in a C-clip will fall off the end of the axel and into the rear end, You will see it fall out. Then just pull the axel out.



When you put the axel back in, push it all the way in then slide the c-clip over the end of the axel and then pull out on axel and that will hold the clip in place untill you put the big long pin back in the carrier. I hope you understand, just watch what you are doing. GOOD LUCK.

Best method is to buy a pair of c-clip pliers which are designed for that purpose. Maybe Pep Boys or similar?
