Better check a manual, The ones I have done do not have c-clips in the diff. You remove 4 nuts behind the brake backing plate, then use a slide hammer to pull out the axle shafts. Then the bearing retainer must be removed (cut or drill into it, the crack it with a hammer blow from a chisel), it should slide off the axle. Then use a bearing splitter and a press to remove the bearing. To install use a long pipe and press to install the new bearing and retainer. Change the seal while your in there. Hope this helps.

Best to get a manual to guide you through, but basic procedure is to remove brake assembly and diff cover, remove "c" clip at axle end after removing spider gear cross pin. Axle slides out, then you can get to bearing. Reverse to install. Finer points are in either chilton or haynes... Or ask back here if you run into trouble (shouldn't)

SOURCE: bad rear axle bearing and seal on a 2000 jeep grand

the bearing does not always have to be really bad for the seal to fail. Centrifugal force will throw axle grease outward where it gets on the rotor. That can make it feel like the rotor is out of round. If grease got on the brake pads I'd replace them and perhaps even the rotor. As far as the caliper being frozen, possible....check it out when you have it apart. You can have more than one shoe untied at the same time. Not always, but it can happen.
When replacing the seal make sure you put some grease on the lip before putting the axle back in. by doing that it won't fail from dry running before the diff lube reaches it.

Are any of the parts on a 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee interchangeable with a 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee? rear axle,wheels, power-steering, hood hyrdraulics?


A few parts should be interchangeable. Most of them will not be however since the Grand Cherokee underwent a complete re-design for 1999. Some engines and transmissions will switch out. The rear axle in the 97 was commonly a Dana/Spicer 35. This was replaced with a larger rear differential in 1999 for increased towing capacity. The wheels should interchange ok, power steering system was pretty much the same and as long as the hydraulics (supports) on the hood are the same length they should work

Noise at rear wheel. Sounded like warn disc brakes. I replaced the disc brakes. Less noise but still not acceptable. Could it be a wheel bearing and if so how do I tell?


lift the rear axle off the ground and spin the wheels around as fast as you can. if the bearings are bad you will hear it if the sound changes as it spins. If it a scratching noise that will be from the disc brake pads

RELACING WHEEL BEARINGS IN A 95 JEEP GRAND


Front wheel bearings can be done at home rear wheel bearings will require a hydraulic press and an axle puller. Either job can be difficult depending on amount of rust and availability of tools. The front wheel bearings are an assembly and once the jeep is up on jack stands, with the tires, brake calipers, and rotors removed, it is only a matter of removing the axle nut and 3 bolts (which can be difficult depending on rust) holding in the old bearing assembly
