The axle is not lined up diff. Press down on end of axle and keep pushing in. May have do it a few times. I always pull the axle out a little and push down. So I feel it move. Then slide it back in and do the same thing.

Rear axle 02 escalade need to remove to replace dust shield

-chalk the wheels so the vehicle can not roll.
-Place the transmission in nuetral.
-jack up the rear of the vehicle.
-remove the real wheels-
-remove the drums or calipers and rotors.
-remove the rear diff fill plug on the side of the differential.
-remove the center cover on the rear differential. Have a drain pan under it to catch the lube that will come out.
-rotate the drive shaft until the rear diff pin bolt is accessible and remove the bolt.
-remove the rear diff pin
-push the axles in
-remove the c clips from the axles
-pull the axles out
-replace the backing plate/dust shield.

They do make a two piece backing plate that can be installed without removing the axles. You will unbolt the old backing plate then cut it into two pieces to remove. The new two piece backing plate will slide over the axle and then bolt into place. I know for sure NAPA has them.

If you have any questions let me know!

How do i replace leaf springs on a dump truck

The best way is to jack up the truck frame (not the axle) high enough to pull the tires off. Put the frame on stands and secure it. Pull the tire/wheels off the side you want to replace the springs on, and then put a jack under the axle to support it once you pull the springs out. The easy way is to just cut all the U bolts with a torch. But, if you need to reuse them, heat the nuts to red hot, throw water on them to cool them off, spray everything down good with wd40 and remove them with a air impact wrench. Once your springs are free from the axle, You may need a bottle jack to jack down the axle to make room to pull them out. Set the new springs in place, remove the bottle jack and jack up on the axle to jack it back into place, putting some pressure on the spring and bolt it all back in place. Hope this helps Fix Ya up.

The right rear axle is bent on my 2005 Ranger. How do I remove and replace this axle? Does it have a clip that locks it into the differential?

kiker graham, Yes there is a clip that holds the axle in the differential. First jack up the back of the vehicle and support with jack stands. Put the transmission in neutral. Remove the wheel and brake drum from the axle you want to remove. Place a catch basin under the differential and remove all the bolts on the rear cover of the differential. Remove the cover and let the gear oil drain out. You may have to move the break line to remove the cover. When the oil has drained out turn the drive shaft until you see a small bolt in a recess on the right side of the assembly on the opposite side on the main drive gear. This is an 8MM bolt that has to loosened very carefully. First, using a punch, place the punch on the head of the bolt and hit it a few times with a hammer to "loosen" it up. This is done to avoid breaking the bolt. If this bolt is broken then you are going nowhere with this job. BE VERY CAREFUL when removing this bolt. When the bolt is out you can move the pin that it is holding. You will notice that this pin is very close to the ends of the axles. Do not completely remove this pin as the side gears will fall out. Pull the pin out only as far as you need to, to push the axle in towards the center of the vehicle. There is a C clip that will fall out when you have done this. Sometimes you have to spin the C clip to get it to fall out. Pull the axle out only far enough to put the center pin back in place. After you do this push the center pin back in and put the small bolt back in to hold it in place. Remove the axle. If the axle is bent and you say it is then it would be a good idea to replace the axle seal at this time. You can use the axle itself to remove the seal. Use the groove where the C clip sits. Place on the inside of the seal. Using the axle as a pry bry, remove the seal. Replace the seal and put the new axle in. You will have to move the axle around a little to get it to engage the splines on the inside of the side gear. Once again pull the center pin out only far enough to push the axle all the way in. Place the C clip in the slot at the end of the axle and pull the axle out as far as you can. This wont be much. Push the center pin back in and replace the little lock bolt and tighten it up. Clean the cover and the back of the differential and use silicone to seal it. There is a fill hole on the front side of the differential. The plug for this hole will accommodate a three eigths ratchet. Fill the differential until the gear oil starts to spill out of the hole. Replace brake drum and wheel. Good luck with this.

How do I remove the rear axle

The rear axle shaft?? Or the entire axle? I'm going to go with the axle shaft. Secure the vehicle. Loosen the lug nuts. Jack it up. Take the wheel and tire off. Remove the caliper and/or bracket. Remove the rotor. Place a pan under the rear differential cover. Remove the rear differential cover. Spin the axle shaft to reveal the center pin. Locate the 8mm-5/16 bolt that holds the center pin in place. Remove that bolt. Slide the center pin out, BUT DON'T TURN THE AXLE SHAFTS WHILE ITS OUT! Push the axle shaft in from the outer portion (where the wheel goes). A "C" clip will fall out inside of the differential. Pull the axle shaft out. Slide the center pin back in. Replace the 8mm-5/16 locking bolt and spin it a few times to keep everything in place.

Front wheel bearings need replacement

It is uncommon for your 2008 to need front wheel bearings this soon, but if it is the case, then I can talk you through the process.
First, jack up the truck and take the tire off. For your own safety, place a minimum of a 2 ton jack stand under the frame. Next, take your brake assembly apart. including the pads, rotor, caliper, and the arm that holds the pads in place. There are 2 5/8" bolts on the back side of the axle housing that hold it in place, and you will need to take them out.

Next, you will see your main axle nut on the end of the axle, and it should have a cotter pin through it. Remove the cotter pin, and the axle nut should be a 32mm nut, and will be most easily broken loose with air tools. Remove the axle nut, then you will see your wheel studs attached to a triangle shaped flange. That triangle is the wheel bearings. It will have a small wiring harness that goes up under the wheelwell. follow it and disconnect it from the closest connection. You will need to place a large screwdriver on the flange to pry it loose. When it comes out, clean the inside of the axle with parts cleaner and a small piece of sandpaper or emery cloth.

Take your new bearing assembly and install it exactly as the old one came out. Put the axle nut back on and tighten it down, replace the cotter pin, and put your brake assembly back together. Don't forget to plug the wiring harness back together as the wires are for your ABS. Put the tire back on and remove the jack stand. Good luck with it, it is a big job, and the wheel bearings are one of those things that if you replace one, you should do both sides.

Spider gears fell on rear differential 95 ford explorer

It's not easy to put them back, but if you get the side gears in position with the axles bumped out as far as you can, the smaller spider gears can be "walked" into place. Try having your buddy rotate one of the wheels slowly until each one fits in. It's tricky but you'll get it.

Does anyone know how to change seals on rear diff on 2003 frod expedition

if you need to change the axle seals here is the process. You need to remove the rear wheels. Remove the brake drums if so equipped. Remove the rear cover on the differential. Turn the differential until you find the bolt that holds the cross shaft in place. Remove the bolt and pull the cross shaft out. Then you will see the axle ends. Push the axle in towards the center of the axle. You will need to remove a C clip retainer from the axle end. You can then remove the axle and gain access to the seal. Repeat the process on the opposite side. Then reverse the disassembly process. Place the cover back onto the differential housing and refill the differential. Good luck.
