    2004 Dodge ram 1500 4x4 with anti-spin rear axle. The D clip is part of the clutches in the carrier. There 4 of these D clips. I can't find any drawings for this.

    Ok, I know what your talking about. The clips that hold the clutches together these are dealers items. These differentials are not easy to put back together. If you look at the diff, you will see four slots, these half round slots are where the D clips rest in.. there are four on each side of the diff, where the axle goes into the diff.. When the d clip breaks, they get eaten, lucky to find half of it. You will have to pull the diff. Remove the small bolt one one side(8mm 0r 5/16ths socket) pull the axle pin. Pull the axles out. Remove the bolts holding and carriers the diff in. The diff won't fall out. On each side of the case there are holes. You will have to unscrew the bearing pressure plate/s to release the diff. Count as you go, you won't to put them in the same spot they came from. Use a screw driver, right hand screw. Be careful, when you get it to a certain point, the diff will fall out. It is heavy. Once the diff is out, you have to use a hammer and punch to get the spider gears out. Don't let them drop out. the gears for the axles can have different numbers of clutches and plates. WATCH THEM AND COUNT. Left and right sides. Now comes the fun part. First you have to make tools to compress the gears and clutches. two pieces of all thread rod, four nuts and four washers the are big enough to hold the gears and be on the outside of the diff. we are compressing the clutches to make this easy as possible. Next, put the clutches back together, use axle grease to hold the D clips to the clutches and plates. Use a lot. insert them in to the diff. You will have to hold them in place and insert the other gears. The other gears have to be directly across from each other. use the axle pin to align them. use a hammer to spin then until the pin starts to touch the diff, remove the pin. Insert the tools, i told you to make and compress the clutches. Finish pushing the gears into place (hammer if necessary), holes line up. Now you have to insert the plates behind the gears. Then insert the axles, clips and pins and bolts. Next is to replace the bearing clamps, then tighten up the bearings with the side nuts with a screwdriver. Get them close as possible. And this pretty much does it. Any questions, let me know.

Year, make and model? did you mean "C" clip. Pins sticking out and rubbing is not a good sign.

How to change left front differential seal


When working on your differential you will need a wide variety of tools. Using the correct tools saves time and helps prevent parts from being damaged. Here is a list of some of the tools that you may need:
  • Dial indicator
  • Gear marking compound and a clean brush
  • Calipers or a micrometer
  • Bearing pullers
  • Bearing press
  • Three foot long breaker bar or strong impact gun
  • Pinion nut socket
  • Ring gear bolt socket
  • Carrier cap bolt socket
  • Six point cross pin bolt wrench
  • Brake line wrench
  • Pry bars for removing the carrier case
  • 24 oz ball pein hammer
  • 48 oz sledge hammer
  • 48 oz plastic dead blow hammer
  • Assorted brass punches
  • Punch for marking carrier caps
  • Oil drain pan
  • Foot pounds torque wrench
  • Inch pounds torque wrench

Disassembly Make sure that you have all the parts and tools you will need. The extent of disassembly depends on the job being done and the inspection findings. Lift the vehicle using an appropriate lift or a jack and safe jack stands. Always make certain that the vehicle is safely supported before working underneath. Unbolt the driveshaft from the yoke. Remove the differential cover or unbolt the third member. Let the oil drain into a suitable container. Please recycle your waste oil. Remove c-clip axles by removing the differential cross pin bolt and cross pin shaft, pushing the axles in and pulling the c-clips. Full float axles are unbolted at the hubs. Punch both carrier caps with identification marks so that you will be able to re-install them on the same side and in the same direction. Most carriers can be pried out of the housing with a pry bar. Further disassembly depends on the job being done. If you're changing the ring and pinion or the pinion bearings, remove the pinion nut with an air gun while holding the yoke, or use a long breaker bar and brace the yoke (bolt it to a long board) so that it can't move. Knock the pinion gear out to the rear with a brass punch, taking care not to damage the threads. Keep track of the location and thickness of all of the original shims. Pinion bearings must be pressed off. Carrier bearings can be pulled using a bearing puller. Internal parts (inside the carrier) can be removed as necessary.



Inspection

Inspect all bearings and races for pitting or uneven wear. The inner carrier bearing races should not spin on the carrier journals. The carrier races should have a snug fit in the housing. Inspect the carrier race bores for grooves from spinning races. The side gear bores inside the carrier should not have any abnormal wear. All gear teeth (including the spider gears) should be smooth but not excessively shiny. Inspect all gear teeth for pitting, chips, breaks, and for signs of uneven wear and overheating. Inspect positraction clutches for scoring and wear. Inspect the axles for pitted, grooved, or dull and rough bearing surfaces. Check for worn axle splines. All questionable parts should be replace
Assembly

Differential Adjustments
The four essential differential adjustments are pinion depth, pinion bearing preload, backlash and carrier bearing preload. The tables at the back can be used to write down shim combinations and results.

Fluid leak from left rear axle housing


This is caused by a leaking rear axle seal you will need to pull the left rear axle out and change the seal and check for a worn axle bearing, this requires the removal of the differential cover, pin and center block or posi spring and clutch pack (if so equipped) and spider gears and then the "C" clip that retains the axle into the gear carrier, u will need a tube of silicone to reseal the cover and a axle seal installer tool and about 2 hours of your time

How to remove axel on 2002 cadillac deville


this procedure is for replacing the axle bearing, it has all the info u need to do whatever it is u are doing with the axle removed.

Instructions Things You'll Need:
  • Floor jack
  • Jack stands
  • Axle puller
  • Set of 3/8-inch drive sockets
  • 3/8-inch drive ratchet
  • Needle nose pliers
  • Set of ¼-inch drive sockets
  • ¼-inch drive ratchet
  • Hammer
  • Lug wrench
  • Tube of RTV silicone
  • 2 bottles of rear axle oil
  • Bucket
  1. Step 1 Raise and support the rear of the vehicle. Remove the wheels. Remove the rear cover on the third member or axle. Place the bucket under the rear to catch the fluid. Remove the brake drums if the vehicle has drum brakes.
  2. Step 2 Rotate the outside axle until the center carrier is in a position where the small 8 mm or ¼-inch bolt is at 7 o'clock and clear of the housing so that it can be removed. This is the bolt holding the center through pin that runs through both spider gears. Position the carrier so that when the bolt is removed, the pin can be dropped straight down without contacting the housing.
  3. Step 3 Remove the center pin and lay it in the cover with its retaining bolt. Do not rotate the carrier with the pin out, since the pin is what holds the spider gears in place. If the carrier is turned, the spider gears would need to be adjusted so that they line up again with the hole for the through pin.
  4. Step 4 Push both axles in toward the carrier. This is now possible because the through-pin has been removed. This will expose the C-clips that hold the axles from coming out of the carrier. Remove the C-clips with the needle nose pliers and lay them in the pan. Pull the axles out of the housing and stand them up.
  5. Step 5 Remove the outside axle bearings and seals with the axle puller. The axle puller has several ends of different sizes; pick the one that fits through the center of the bearing. The axle puller is a sliding hammer with a T-end that can swivel. When the puller end is inserted through the bearing, rotate it slightly to get the T-end to swivel up and grab the bearing. Using the slide hammer, hammer the bearing and seal out of the housing.
  6. Step 6 Clean the housing surface where the bearing will be seated. Place the new bearing into the housing as far as it will go, and make sure it goes in straight. Place the old bearing on top of the new bearing and hit it with the hammer to drive the new bearing in. Tap it on in a circular pattern and continue until there is a resounding difference in sound as the bearing contacts the lip in the axle (it will sound more solid). Remove the old bearing.
  7. Step 7 Install the seal by tapping it carefully on four corners, avoiding the rubber part of the seal, until it is seated. Do not bend the housing or it will leak.
  8. Step 8 Install the axles and push them in all the way. Insert the C-clips on the ends of the axles and pull the axles back out to seat the C-clips in the carrier. Insert the pin back into the carrier through the spider gears and install the small retaining bolt to keep the pin in.
  9. Step 9 Clean the face of the housing and the axle cover where the gasket material will seal. Use brake cleaner or alcohol to remove all the oil from the surface to be sealed. Smear some RTV silicone sealant on the axle cover around the edge in a continuous line about a quarter of an inch thick. Allow the cover to sit until the RTV silicone sealant cures to the point that it will not transfer to the fingers when touched. The proper terminology is when it "skins," or is still wet inside but starting to dry on the outside; this way it will stay in place.

I need to remove the rear axles to 1996 ford bronco


remove rear cover from rear differential. catch nasty smelling oil (gear lube) in drain pan. remove bolt on side of carrier to be able to pull pin out from so called spider gears. if you have limited slip you may hve to pull S spring out from between side gears. then push axles in and remove C clips fom end of axles. then pull axles out. installation is in reverse of removal. make sure that the C clips are well installed in the groves whe reinstalling axles, or they could fall out and axles will come out while driving. bad deal.if you have limited slip get a bottle of friction modifier from parts store to put in there with new gear lube . is a small bottle like 6 to 8 oz.kepps clutch packs from chatering on turns.

How do you remove the differintial on a 2004 chevy pick up 1500?


Get the rear wheels off of the ground, remove wheels, and drums. (Rotors if you have those)
Remove rear cover (use a drain pan to catch fluid)
Look for the 5/16" or 8mm head pin bolt and remove it.
Turn the differential so you can get the pin out. (goes through the center)
Push you axles inward and with a small magnet, take both "C" clips out from the inner part of the axles.
Now slide out you axles. (Careful on the outer seals)
Mark your carrier bearing caps so you know what is left or right, and remove them both.
Find out what size the bolt heads are for the "ring" gear and get two wrenches to fit. (Usually 19mm or 3/4")
Hold one on a bolt head on the top side and put the other wrench lower.Force the lower wrench upward, as this will push the upper wrench into the housing and "push" the differential out. When removing be aware that there are spacers that need to go back where they came from. DO NOT MIX THESE UP. These spacers are under the carrier bearing caps, left and right of the differential.
Note, four spider gears is a normal differential, requires gear oil. If it has clutch packs, it is a limited slip and requires gear oil and limited slip additive!!!

Rear bearing


rear axle bearings I assume? Pull the diff cover, rotate the carrier so you can remove the pin from the center of the 4 spyder gears, push the axle in slightly, and remove large c clip from the carrier area. The axle will pull right out! These vehicles are hard on axle bearings. Look them all over.

Good Luck!
