Change front differential seal


I take it that it is a pinion seal

remove the tail shaft

undo the pinion nut

( use an 1/2 " impact gun )

pull the yoke off

use a lever and pry out the old seal

fit new seal flush with the diff body face

refit the yoke and do the nut up till it is hard on the yoke plus about 1/8 of a turn or if there is a split pin to position the nut to the closest slot that the pin will fit in

( there are two types of spacers in diffs

one is solid and you can do the nut up to the desired tension

the other is a collapsible spacer which would have been collapsed to the correct dimension in initial assembly so the nut cannot be done up any tighter that what I suggest or you will over load the pinion bearings and burn them out

refit the tail shaft

Rear brake drum removal


does the nut have a split pin and crown if so straighten split pin remove pin and crown and undo nut if no split pin it is just a case of undoing the nut which will be very tight so get a long socket breaker bar , the right wheel may have a left hand thread so to remove is the opposite to normal and vice versa , there is a dust cap to remove to expose the nut to begin with and replace the split pin , if that is the type , with new ones

How to remove the rear stub axle on a 98 vw jetta gl drum brakes


Hi
Put car on stands securely and remove wheel.
Release handbrake, Remove brake drum.
Four bolts secure the stub axle, they will be very tight so use a freeze spray penetrating oil...lots of it. Some of these cars use allen head bolts so make sure the allen socket is good quality and is fullyhome before you undo the bolts.
When refitting, check the correct torque setting for these bolts.
These are usually replaced because the bearings have failed nd scored the hard surfaces....so...do fit new..god quality bearings and regrease properly!
Refitting is a reverse...please do clean and adjust brake shoes before adjusting handbrake. And always check your brake cylinders too.
Good luck

How to change wheel bearings on jaguar xj6 front 1996


Disconnect the vehicle battery ground lead.
Support the vehicle at the front and remove the appropriate wheel.
Remove brake caliper and disc assemblies see SRO 70 10
Note- Do not allow the caliper to hang by either harness or
flexible hose.

Pry off the hub grease cap
Remove and discard cotter pin
pull off castellated nut retainer
Remove the hub nut and bearing washer.
Carefully remove the hub assembly from the stub axle.

Pry the original seal from the spigot and discard.
remove the bearings and using a drift punch knock out the bearing cups.
Remove all traces of grease and dirt from the stub axle and back plate.
Note: the backing plate may be used to pull the inner bearing and seal if they stay on the stub shaft.
Press in the new bearing cups using a socket or other tool of the correct size to prevent damaging the new bearing cup or hub.
Note: Do not use bearing to press in the cup.
Pack the annular gaps of the oil seal lips with grease.
Wash the hub assembly thoroughly.
Ensure that the hub inner seal diameter is free of debris or damage and is lightly lubricated prior to assembly.
Only replace complete bearings, never cup or race in isolation.
Pack each race with approximately 4 ml of grease and position the inner race onto the stub axle.
Apply a smear of grease to hub inner surfaces and bearing cups. Assemble the hub to the stub axle followed by outer race, bearing washer and hub nut.
It is not necessary to fill the hub cavity with grease, merely protect from corrosion with a coat of lubricant. Seat the bearings by slightly tightening the hub nut whilst rotating the hub. Do not apply load without rotation.

Adjust End float. Set a Dial Test Indicator and adjust the hub nut to achieve the correct end float.
.001-.003"
As the adjustment is made, continually load the hub axially in both directions.
Without disturbing the end float setting, fit the castellated
nut retainer so that it aligns with both hub nut and stub axle drilling.
Secure nut retainer using a new cotter pin.

Reassemble brake rotor and caliper. Bolts MUST be tightened to specification
operation of the braking system verified.
Reassemble wheel

Wheel bearing


the rear bearing is pressed into the hub so take the hubs off and take to a engineering shop to have the new one pressed in ,now the front ones are similar in as much as they need pressing in and out ,DO NOT TRY TO DO IT WITH A BIG HAMMER ,its dangerous ,remove the wheel trim and slacken the big nut in the middle ,think its a 32mm then jack vehicle up remove the wheel ,undo the brake caliper by the 2 bolts that hold it to the stub axle ,slacken bolt on track rod end but do not remove fully and then wack the end of the stub axle where the track rod end goes through .One good wack with a 1kg hammer will do it on the end of the steering /stub axle shaft without damaging anything because you have left the nut on loose.then remove the bottom track control arm pinch bolt it has a star head and a 17 mm nut on the other end ,use a lengh of scaffold pole or a big crow bar to pull the track control arm down so the ball joint come apart ,take the stub axle off and in the back is a big circlip but leave it alone and just take it to the engineering shop ,its very dangerous to try to remove the bearing with a big hammer and drift because it can and will chip and hit you in the face trust me on this

Front axle passenger side


about a 1 hour job

1 you need to remove the wheel 4 or 5 nuts.
2 you need to remove the caliper 2 bolts at the back of the disk.
3 there will be a cup in the middle of the disk you can remove the cup with a hammer and a medium flat blade screw driver behind the cup us a large nut it may have a **** pin going through it you will need a pair of side cutter plyers to remove the split pin the nut will be 24mm.
4 there will be 2 bolts with a nut each on the back of them undo the bolts and the disk will come toward you and hang on an angle.
5 your driveshaft will be sort of locked in to the transmission give the driveshaft a bit of a shake side to side and pull toward you at a steady rate you dont want to damage your seals.
6 it is all straight forward when putting i back together just make sure to do the caliper and the 24mm nut up as tight as you can and dont forget the split pin.

if i was you i was you i would do the driver side axel as well they always seem to follow not long after you replace the other

hope i explained it well let me no if you get stuck

no you dont need any special tools
