If you're talking about the yoke seal , drain oil , remove
access plate , remove drive shaft , with a seal puller you should be able to remove the seal , if not look into the
access area and you'll see the back of the worm gear
it uses a C clip to hold in into place remove it and the gear will slide out from there you will be able to remove
the seal , if its on either out board remove the wheel &
remove the brake assembly go back the the access
area and remove the clip that holds the axle in , then
pull the drive link or axle out you can then replace
the seal .

How do you remove the rear hub nut on a 2004 ford f450 need to get to axle seal


Remove the bolts or nuts at the end of the axle and remove the axle from the axle tube. There will be a little gear lube that will come out that you will need to replace before you use the vehicle again after you replace the wheel seal. That will expose the axle nuts to the axle hub that you will need to remove to replace the inner wheel seal. It's basically very simple once you get the axle out you will see how it all comes apart. Be sure to torque the axle nut and locking nut correctly upon reassembly.

Rear axle removal on a 2004 f150 fx4


First thing is to make sure you chock the front tires so the truck will not roll. Raise the rear end and set it on jack stands. Put the transmission in Neutral and make sure the parking brake is off. Remove the rear tires and disassemble the brakes on the side with the leaking seal. Place a drain pan under the rear differential and remove the cover. Remove the differential shaft lock bolt. You will need to turn the drive shaft by hand to access the bolt. It will be on the right side off the spider gear housing. Only use a 5/16 or 8mm 6 point box end wrench to remove the bolt. After you remove the bolt reach on the top of the spider gear housing and push the differential lock shaft down to remove it. Make sure the spider gears do not rotate after you remove the shaft. If they do you will need to realign everything to reinstall the lock shaft. Push the axle shaft in enough to remove the "C" clip from the tip of it. The axle will now slide out of the rear end. You can use the tip of the axle shaft to remove the axle seal. If you're changing the bearing as well you will need a slide hammer with axle bearing adapters to remove it. You can use a socket and hammer to install the new bearing and seal. Be careful not to damage the bearing and seal. I recommend packing grease in the back side of the seal. This helps prevent the spring on the seal lip from coming off. Assembly is the reverse. Clean off all the gear oil from the differential cover and the axle. You can use RTV as a gasket if the OEM gasket is damaged. Fill the rear end with new gear oil of the proper type. Refer to your owner's manual.

How to remove rear axle to replace axle seal?


First the wheel has to be removed. Then it's a good idea to remove the braking hardware(Shoes, springs etc.) for these will have to bre cleaned or replaced later in the process. There will be 4 or 5 hex head bolts circling the axle, remove these and at the same time place a small tray underneath to catch any small amount of fluid which may drip out. Next pry the axle out with your hands or a couple of matching prybars at 3:00 and 9:00 equally. The seal may be removed using a long, large flat head screwdriver blade. Use extra care not to scratch(score) the seal housing. The new seal should be installed using a seal and bushing installer kit, however, it may be done by using the old seal flipped iover and taped at a rotational method. Make sure after all is put together to measure the fluid level. This is done by placing your pinky finger into the filler hole . If there is enough fluid to coat your fingers firest knuckle than you're all set. Thank you, Dana

Rear Axle Seal Replacement


remove rear tires, then remove brake calipers and rotors, then remove the 4 nuts (each side) that hold the axle shafts to the axle tube (located around the axle tube behind the backing plate) then using a slide hammer pull the axle shafts out, next using a die grinder and an air hammer get he retainer collar and the bearing off (without damaging the axle shaft) then remove the seal and the outer race which will still be in the housing. next put it all back together, make sure the plate with the studs is still on then slide the seal, bearing, then retainer on (all new parts) and using a press push them all the way back on. then is simple reassembly.

Need to remove and replace rear rotor


You have to remove the axle shafts first as it has a full-floating axle, then pull rotor and hub off the axle housing. Unbolt rotors from hub. Check bearings and seals in hubs and the axle snouts where the bearings run before installing. Put new flange gaskets on axle and torque flange bolts to 95 ft-lbs.

Rear end seal leak


You must be refering to the side seals. common problem. the actual problem with those rear ends is the air breather, which cloggs up and that's when your seals blow out, because the pressure in the rear end has nowhere to go and so your seals get blown out. I just did a set on Monday. Anywho, you will need some specialty tools for this. You will need to remove both rear brake assemblys (rotors, calipers). Than look on the other side of the backing plate, there you will see 4 big nuts that hold the backing plate on the axle tube (rear end). Remove those 4 nuts and that's where specialty tools become usefull. You will need a slide hammer. You need to attach the slide hammer onto the axle right by the studs. Use factory whel nuts to attach. Remove axle out of the housing with few good slides of the slide hammer. Once the axle is out, you need to remove the snapp ring, then cut the colar off and remove colar, then remove the old bearing and thats where the seal is. Big help doing this job is a pneumatic air hammer, which helps you remove the stuff off the axle shaft and the slide hammer to remove the axles out. You will need 2 seals, 2 bearings and 2 collars. You may also need the plates with the studs, which had the big nuts, that you removed in first steps of this repair. Kind of a job for someone that has been working on cars and has the tools to do it. Good luck. Oh ya, change the breather and the fluid in the rear end.
