Question about 1981 Ford Bronco
Jack the vehicle up and use a jack stand to support the axle lifted. I f you have disc brakes remove the loaded caliper now.Remove the manual locking hub by removing the allen head bolts. Once the locking hub is removed look on the very edge on the inside of the hub and you will see a small metal snap ring. Use a hooked shaped metal awl to hook the ring and pull out and around the ring gently. When you get it to where you can hold it with your fingers grab it and remove it so it doesn't jump out of the hub and fly off somewhere so you can't find it.
Then you will see a big nut on the spindle. Bend the locking ring tabs back so you can place a socket on the nut to loosen it and remove it. Then remove the locking ring from the spindle by pulling it towards you. Then use the socket to loosen and remove the next nut. Then the hub ready to remove. Make sure you replace the inner wheel seal before you place the hub back onto the spindle. Just reassemble the hub in the reverse of what I have told you here. A piece of cake. Anyone can do this if you follow the directions. Good luck.
