Question about 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee
Remove the driveshaft and mark the position of the nut with something that won't wipe off easily. Put a socket on the nut and put a mark in the same place on the outside of the socket. also make another mark on the housing so you can reference to that. with the wheels on the ground so the gears inside cannot turn, loosen the nut, counting exactly how many turns it takes to remove it. Write that number down. The yoke should come right off but sometimes you need to help it a bit with a hammer. Put the new one on then the washer that was under the nut and then the nut. Count exactly the same number of turns to tighten it back up this is very important as if it's looser or tighter you will change the internal gear lash setting.
Once it's on, put the driveshaft back up. During the entire time you are working do not move the vehicle or allow the rear tires to turn or you will loose your reference.
