Start by removing the center axle nut. (torqued very tight about 175ft lbs...you need a solid breaker bar with about a five foot pipe added for leverage, or 3/4 impact gun. then remove wheel and caliper and rotor. Remove the hub bearing by taking out the three 12pt bolts on the opposite side of the steering knuckle. Once those bolts are loose use wd40 on the hub parting line and hammer on the bolt heads to push the bearing out.Loosen the bolts each time they need to be backed off till the hub is loose. The axle comes out right through the hole where the bearing was. Make sure you grease the joints well because you cant once it's back together.

1993 Jeep Wrangler - Front Axel U joint, why no C clips?


The factory u-joints use plastic injection for retainers so when it comes time to replace the factory u-joint use a torch to heat the u-joint cups and you will see a melted plastic worm come out the side of the drive shaft, now you can drive out the old joint.
The replacement joint will use inner c-clips.

88 wrangler wont shift


Clutch pedals have a safety interlock switch that keeps a manual transmission vehicle from starting. It sounds like the pin on the bottom of the shifter in the trans is getting worn and needs to be replaced. You can remove the boot on the shifter and the cover on top of the trans and see the pin. It's a simple matter of getting the pin out and installing a new one. Just make sure everything lines up good on the install and everything is clean. Another thing that may be the culprit are the synchronizer plates could be worn nearlt out. To replace or fix this you will need the trans out of the vehicle and tear it down. Start with an inspection of the pin and the linkage as well, then if it doesn't work correctly then you may have to tear into it.

U-joints NYS Inspection


Yes it matters to the inspector, if it's standers part or after market part that was added and not functioning. They can fail it, I had Off road light's on my truck and one did not work but it was illegal to use them on the road i still failed my inspection till i replaced the bulb.
I ended removing the light, didn't feel like driving off to replace the bulb and come back to get it inspected again.
Good luck and hope this helps, guess it depends on how strick the inspector is.

LEAKING FRONT AXIL SEAL


take the wheel off , unbolt caliper and sling it out of the way with a bungi cord, take off the rotor, then you have too take the pumpkin cover off the axel diff in the front (drain fluid first) easy way to do that take out bottom and side bolts out then leave top 1 or 2 in but finger loose. pry cover off with a sturdy scrapper from side allowing fluid to leak out from bottom of cover. when fluid is done comeing out then take off cover. to take the axel out to replace the seal you have to push the axel inwards to remove the C- CLIP on the end of the axel shaft that slides into the inside of the pinion gear (use a extending magnet) keeps gear oil on your hands and from dropping it into the pumpkin housing. then all you have to do is slide the axel shaft out. then replace the seal .
