Question about Dodge Dakota

1 Answer

I would like to know if the bearing that the yoke goes into has to be pressed out and the new one pressed in. I understand that I can remove the last part of the transmission can be removed without removing the whole trans.

Do I need to remove the entire front differential to replace the yoke seal?


No -- use a suitable tool to hold the yoke while you undo the nut. pull the yoke off
use a screw driver to pry out the old seal
tap in a new seal flush with the housing face
check for a groove on pinion flange ( yoke )-- replace if deep or use a seal saver that is pressed on to make a new surface for the seal to run on ( available from bearing retailers )
replace the pinion and re-tension the nut to about 70 ft/lbs
Most have a collapsible spacer so don't take it up to the full tension as that will over load the bearings
if the manual shows a solid spacer --take the tension up to the torque settings

Rear pinion removel on a GMC Jimmy 1998 4x4 to replace bearing


Pull the rear cover, remove the axles, remove the carrier assembly, drop the drive shaft off the yoke,remove pinion nut, remove the yoke and knock the pinion out with wooden or brass hammer. The pinion bearing will have to be pressed off and on with proper shim. reinstall with new crush sleeve. There is alot specs and readings yoy need to follow so it is best to get a repair manual and follow it to the tee.

Drive shaft bearings


Do you mean u joints because there is realy not a bearing in the driveshaft so to speak But the u joints have neddle bearings in the yoke You need to unbolt the drive shaft from the rear cairrer then pull it back out of the transmission tail stock it will laek some oil you can take a plastic bag and a couple of rubber bands and seal that up Then take the shaft out from under the vehicle to some place you can work on it like a bench but when you remove the shaft make sure you mark it its weighted and needs to go back in the same way or the balance will be off and it will viberate at certion speeds There small c clips that need to be removed from the out side of the bearing caps then you can press or drive the oid yokes out a little head helps something propane torch you don,t have to worry about the old ones When there out this is the tricky part you need to remove two of the caps from the new joint oppiste sides there pregreesed and the bearings will stay inside of them slide one cap into the drive shaft then slide the u joint yoke into the cap from the inside and gentle puessit on the yoke then do the same with the other side of the cap on the oppiste side of the driveshaft you can use a large c clamp to press them into pisition install the new clips and gresse if the unit has a gresse fitting and you will save a lot of money if you can do this Then install but make sure you put in the same side up as you took it out

I can't get u joint out of driveshaft. Please help


You'll want to put it in a vice and heat it up untill the plastic oozes out. Then use a drift to knock out the u-joint one way then pull out the bearing cap and then same thing back the other way.Clean the holes with some emory cloth before installing the new one.

How do you get the rear u-joint out of the drive shaft on 2005 chevy avalanche


It will need to be pressed out.

Universal Joint: Service and Repair
Nylon Injected Ring
Universal Joint Replacement - Nylon Injected Ring
^ Tools Required
- J 9522-3 U Joint Bearing Separator
- J 9522-5 U Joint Bearing Spacer Remover
Disassembly Procedure
Notice: Never clamp propeller shaft tubing in a vise. Clamping could dent or deform the tube causing an imbalance or unsafe condition. Always
clamp on one of the yokes and support the shaft horizontally. Avoid damaging the slip yoke sealing surface. Nicks may damage the bushing or cut
the lip seal.
1. Support the propeller shaft in a line horizontal with the table of a press.
2. Mark the propeller shaft as to which end is the transmission end and which end goes to the rear axle.
3. Place the universal joint so that the lower ear of the yoke is supported on a 30 mm (1 1/8 inch) socket.
4. In order to shear the plastic retaining ring on the bearing cup, place J 9522-3 on the open horizontal bearing cups. Press the lower bearing cup out
of the yoke ear.
5. If you do not completely remove the bearing cup, lift the cross and insert J 9522-5 between the seal and the bearing cup you are removing.
Continue to press the bearing cup out of the yoke.
6. Rotate the propeller shaft. Press the opposite bearing cup out of the yoke.
7. Mark the orientation of the slip yoke to the tube for proper reassembly.
8. Remove the cross from the yoke.
9. Remove the remaining universal joint parts from the yoke. If you are replacing the front universal joint, remove the bearing cups in the slip yoke
in the same manner.
10. Inspect the retaining ring grooves for plastic.
11. Inspect the bearing cup bores in the yoke ears for burrs or imperfections.
12. Clean the remains of the sheared plastic bearing retainers from the grooves in the yoke.
13. The sheared plastic may prevent the bearing cups from pressing into place and thus prevent the bearing retainers from properly seating.
Assembly Procedure
1. Remove the bearing cups from the universal joint.
2. Assemble 1 bearing cup part way into 1 side of the yoke.
3. Turn the yoke ear toward the bottom.
4. Assemble the cross into the yoke so the trunnion seats freely into the bearing cup.
5. With the trunnion seated in the bearing cup, press the bearing cup into the yoke until the bearing cup is flush with the yoke ear.
6. Assemble the opposite bearing cup part way into the yoke ear.
7. Ensure that the trunnions start straight and true into both bearing cups.
8. Press the opposite bearing cup into the yoke ear while working the cross all the time in order to inspect for a free unbinding movement of the
trunnions in the bearing cups.
Important: If there seems to be a hang-up or binding, stop pressing, and inspect the needle bearings for misalignment in the bearing cup.
9. Press the bearing cup into the yoke until the bearing retainer groove clears the inside of the yoke.
10. Assemble the bearing retainer in the retainer groove.
11. Continue pressing until you can snap both retainers into place.
12. If seating the retainer is difficult, spring the yoke slightly with a firm blow from a dead blow hammer.
13. It may be necessary to lubricate the snap ring with a slight amount of chassis grease so the snap ring seats in the bearing cup groove.

2. Mark the propeller shaft in order to show which end connects to the transmission and which end goes to the rear axle.
3. Disassemble the snap rings by pinching the ends together with a pair of pliers.
4. If the ring does not readily snap out of the groove in the yoke, tap the end of the cup lightly in order to relieve the pressure from the ring.
5. Place the universal joint so that the lower ear of the yoke is supported on a 30 mm (1-1/8 inch) hex head socket or a 27 mm (1-1/16 inch) socket.
6. Place J 9522-3 on the open horizontal bearing cups. Press the lower bearing cup out of the yoke ear.
7. If you do not completely remove the bearing cup, lift the cross and insert J 9522-5 between the seal and the bearing cup you are removing.

Passenger side u joint is rattling and need to replace


Axle Shaft: Service and Repair
Axle Shaft, Constant Velocity Type
Single cardan U-joint components are not serviceable. If defective, they must be replaced as a unit. If the bearings, seals, spider, or bearing caps are
damaged or worn, replace the complete U-joint.
REMOVAL
CAUTION: Clamp only the narrow forged portion of the yoke in the vise. Also, to avoid distorting the yoke, do not over tighten the vise jaws.
1. Remove axle shaft.
2. Remove the bearing cap retaining snap rings (Fig. 19).
It can be helpful to saturate the bearing caps with penetrating oil prior to removal.
3. Locate a socket where the inside diameter is larger in diameter than the bearing cap. Place the socket (receiver) against the yoke and around the
perimeter of the bearing cap to be removed.
4. Locate a socket where the outside diameter is smaller in diameter than the bearing cap. Place the socket (driver) against the opposite bearing cap.
5. Position the yoke with the sockets in a vise (Fig. 20).
6. Compress the vise jaws to force the bearing cap into the larger socket (receiver).
7. Release the vise jaws. Remove the sockets and bearing cap that was partially forced out of the yoke.
8. Repeat the above procedure for the remaining bearing cap.
9. Remove the remaining bearing cap, bearings, seals and spider from the propeller shaft yoke.
INSTALLATION
1. Pack the bearing caps 1/3 full of wheel bearing lubricant. Apply Extreme Pressure (EP), lithium-base lubricant to aid in installation.
2. Position the spider in the yoke. Insert the seals and bearings. Tap the bearing caps into the yoke bores far enough to hold the spider in position.
3. Place the socket (driver) against one bearing cap. Position the yoke with the socket wrench in a vise.
4. Compress the vise to force the bearing caps into the yoke. Force the caps enough to install the retaining clips.
5. Install the bearing cap retaining clips.
6. Install axle shaft.

Need to replace driveshaft carrier bearing, will not come off transmission end.


First mark the relationship of the two yokes and then remove the universal joint. Now that's done remove the retainer clip from the top of the slip yoke and gently tap the slip yoke out being careful not to damage the splines on the shaft. the bearing that ins on there is pressed in so (A) you can bring it to someone with a press or (B) use a gear/ pulley puller. If you attempt this take your time and have patience don't break anything and think safety first.

Bearing on 4WD front differntial drive shaft yoke


In short yes, the bearing is pressed on the pinion gear, the only way it will come out is to remove cover on housing and pull carrier with ring gear out, and also yoke that drive shaft bolts to, then pinion will come out, there is also a crush sleve that will have to be replaced when it goes back together it goes over the pinion gear, thats for backlash ajustment when you tighten the pinion back in the housing. if you plan on doing this yourself you will also need a dial indicater to set the backlash. If you want my advise take it to a shop to have it done, if you don't get it right it could end up costing you alot more than if you took it someware and had it done.

Driveshaft yoke balancer


I had the same problem and removed the balancer from the drive shaft this morning. I put the drive shaft back on, and drove the truck around all day, highway, city, stop and go, there were no problems, and the noise was gone, and I had no vibrations at all. So you should be fine if you remove the balancer.
