SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Bearing between drive shafts (Is this the Carrier Bearing?)

Replace the bearing, it's rubber mount and any u joints that are not PERFECT. any little resistance will make vibration, and it only gets worse.

Be CERTAIN to keep the shafts in PHASE or you will be most sorry. Phase realtes to their positioning to one another, precisely.

SOURCE: A mechanic says the carrier bearing that connects

The carrier bearing is the support that holds the shaft & is connector between shafts, it's NOT connected to the shaft (integral) Just look up "carrier or support" bearing for your rig.

I want to replace the tail shaft carrier support bearing in my automatic gearbox 2006-7 BT-50 with the correct system or better?

I am wondering what tailshaft bearing your gearbox is currently using that your question implies is incorrect?

Apart from heavy commercial gearboxes and 4wd off-roaders the only gearbox tailshaft bearings I have seen are plain thin-wall bronze types that once installed must be line-reamed or broached for a good fit with the propeller shaft or drive flange. So far I have only heard about folk needing them changing. In 40 years I have never seen one that has given trouble.

Replace the u joints and carrier bearings for a 92 GMC Sonoma and now has a vibrations

When you removed the drive shaft, did you properly mark the shaft where it comes apart at the carrier bearing? This joint telescopes and usually must be separated to get the carrier bearing on/off. If you reassemble the shaft 180 degrees out (most shafts can go back together two ways), you will throw the driveshaft out of balance. The vibrations will be felt from almost the instant you start moving. You will need to drop the shaft and reassemble the shaft back to its original position.

I have a 96 camaro and I need to replace my carrier bearing. Where can I find one?

I am not sure your car has a carrier bearing, but if it did it would be located on the drive shaft between the transmission and rear end of the car.

Is a 2004 ford f-150 2wd carrier bearing.. ( mid-mount bearing ) on driveshaft replaceable, or do i have to replace entire driveshaft?

it is replaceable
normally it comes complete in the rubber mount
you will have to undo the drive shaft flange at the bearing
remove the drive shaft and take it to an accredited drive shaft repair shop or take the vehicle to an accredited drive line specialist shop
the repair will require that you place the flange back on the shaft after the bearing replacement in exactly the right position or you will get harmonic vibration after the job so talk with the experts first if you want to diy

Most of the time these have to be pressed off.Your better of removing the drive shafts and taking them to a repair shop and have them press them off then back on.Usually there are also some places that sell bearings will also do this service.Call them up ahead of time and find out if they can do this and what they charge.Hope this has been helpful.Good luck.

How do I do a front drive shaft on a 99 silverado? My ujoint is out towards the back. I can see the front just has the 4 bolts to take that apart. what I am wondering is if the back slides out of the deal...

I see that the solution given is for an axle shaft and not the drive shaft that was asked about. I am 99% sure that if you take out the bolts the other end will slide out of the t-case. Then the u-joint can be replaced as normally done.

Carrier bearing removal on a 2000 f250

Remove the drive line. Split the drive shaft apart and then do as you guessed and remove the nut. Then you can get the carrier bearing off.
