    i'm kinda new to this level of repair, not sure what you mean by the carrier. also would i still be able to pull the axle out if the lug hub is broken off the shaft and still bolted to the wheel?

    ok took off the rear differential plate, drained the fluid and found the bolt that secures the pin but its not 5/16ths (closer to 7mm but corrugated) any idea what to use to get it off? and will i be able to push the axle out from within the differential? the axle flange is broken off on the outside.

Take the rear cover off of the rear end. make sure you have something to let the fluid drain in. turn the carrier until you see a 5/16ths bolt. take the bolt out and let the pin in the center of the carrier slide down enough to be able to slide the axle inward. that will release the c-clip. then when the c-clip i removed you can just pull the axle out of the houseing but mak sure to not let the carrier spin any while you are pulling the axle out.

Are any of the parts on a 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee interchangeable with a 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee? rear axle,wheels, power-steering, hood hyrdraulics?


A few parts should be interchangeable. Most of them will not be however since the Grand Cherokee underwent a complete re-design for 1999. Some engines and transmissions will switch out. The rear axle in the 97 was commonly a Dana/Spicer 35. This was replaced with a larger rear differential in 1999 for increased towing capacity. The wheels should interchange ok, power steering system was pretty much the same and as long as the hydraulics (supports) on the hood are the same length they should work

Noise from rear-end on jeep chrokee


Hey Dennis,
Have you checked the lube level in the read differential? If its good, you have a wheel bearing going bad. To replace it, you will need to remove the axle.. This is not a hard fix, but you have to have the ALL the tools and you MUST put the rear end up on jack stands..DO NOT use a jack to hold the rear end up.. IF you are not very mechanically inclined, please take this to a qualified professional..

My 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee has a hole in the rubber boot protecting the cv joint on the passenger side front axle, how do I fix it?


BEst way to due the job is to just replace the front axle, this assures you that there is not sand or any other forein material that could cause any issues with your axles. Especially if this is a 4 wheel drive.

Bad rear axle bearing and seal on a 2000 jeep grand


the bearing does not always have to be really bad for the seal to fail. Centrifugal force will throw axle grease outward where it gets on the rotor. That can make it feel like the rotor is out of round. If grease got on the brake pads I'd replace them and perhaps even the rotor. As far as the caliper being frozen, possible....check it out when you have it apart. You can have more than one shoe untied at the same time. Not always, but it can happen.
When replacing the seal make sure you put some grease on the lip before putting the axle back in. by doing that it won't fail from dry running before the diff lube reaches it.

Im am rotating tires on a 94 jeep cherokee the


Move the passenger side rear tire to the front, and passenger side front to driver side rear. Switch the driver side rear tire to the front and driver side front to passenger side rear. Repeat this "X" pattern each time you rotate the tires. Rotate the tires from side to side if the tires are different sizes on the front and rear.

This is the better solution. Hope helped (remember rated this help)

Good luck.

I have a 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee, 2wd and the driver side rear axle seal is leaking; do I have to press the bearing off the axle to replace the seal?


Yes you do.It would be a good idea to replace the bearing and the seal at the same time.Reason being is that 9 times out of 10 the bearing gets damaged in the proccess of being pressed off.
