Take off the housing cover in the middle of the rear end and to each side there is a retainer clip for each side. Pull it out and that side comes out. I don't think you needed to remove the rear end to do this though.

Is a 2002 chevy tracker the same as the 2001 on the rear axle seal replacement?


yes.
old post but found in wrong forum...
ok, the axle has 3 seals.
which seal leaks> center or left/right ends.
it's no jeep you posted to jeep forum , i moved you.

in truth all trackers/vitara/sidekick, end seals same
here is a page.

http://www.fixkick.com/axles/axle_rear_R&R.html

the page even has the free 1996 FSM. link.
to read all steps. and this page above corrects
GM's (GEO) errors.

the real question is, are the inboard axles ends locked in the pig (3rd member gear carriers, or side gears)
answer is NO 1989 to 2004.

the seals are all sold at rockauto.com
you can look there and see lots of seals.
and the part numbers there are real.
and see what years it fits. all on one page.
posted 1000s of times this fact.

what i do is find who makes them then the p/n
then find them local but searching.
there is no other fast way.
go to GM and beg for seals.
they go GEO what?

How to rear axle on chevy express van 1500


You want to know how to remove the axle correct ? There are clips inside the rear carrier that hole the axles from running out . You need to remove the the bolts on the back of the rear carrier but make sure that you can get the fill plug out first so you can put oil back in it . The clips come out like nothing you can do it with your fingers you need to replace the seals and look at the axle shaft and condution of the bearings replace as required also check to see if the vent is clear on the carrier the oil is heavy and expands alot this will blow the axle seals . The older it is the more likely it is that you need axle s or bearings but you will need new seals if you remove the axles

Right rear axle seal leaks


If only your axle seals are leaking then just remove one axel at a time. Take it to an automotive machine shop where they will press of the old seals bearings and reatainer and press on a new seal barring and reatainer all greased up and ready to slide back into place. No need to replace the whole axle for a leaky seal. Once this is done with both sides ( assuming both sides are leaking) refil the differential so the oil just starts to ooze out of the fill hole and replace the cap. Presto you are good to go. Also an important note. Make sure sure rear breaks are not soaked in 90W oil. This will impede your breaking ability and cause a dangerous situation. If the break pads are soaked they will most likely need to be replaced.
