You will need to support the vehilce on Jackstands, remover the rear wheels, remove the differential cover. You will see a pin retaining the spider gears in the diff, this pin is held in place with a bolt. Carefully remove this bolt, you may need to spin the carrier to access it, once the bolt is removed (should be an 8mm) you can slide the pin out, and push in on the axles ( you may need to disassemble the brakes to do this) and the c-clips can be removed, and the axles can be pulled from the truck.

How do I replace the rear end wheel bearing on driver side? It's a 2007 Crown Victoria. I was driving it to work one day and the back end locked up. It will drive forward but it makes the most horrific...


#1. A wheel bearing should not lock up the rear end. #2. Sounds like you have a far worse problem, probably in the differential. To replace the wheel bearing you need to remove the diff cover, take out the spider gear pin remove the locking c clip and remove the axle. Obviously the left rear wheel and rotor and caliper have to be removed as well. then the bearing ,which is pressed into the housing needs to be removed. If the bearing is that bad the axle will need to be replaced as well.

How to install a new rear axle in a 02 gmc sierra 1500


Jack it up ,pull the wheel on the bad axle side,remove the diff. cover,
remove the small pin holding the large pin in,slide the big pin out ,push the axle in from the wheel end,remove the c-clip in the axle and slide it out.
Would be wise to change the seal at the end af the axle tube at the same time. Slide the new axle in ,put the c-clip in the axle ,push it back in the carrier and reinstall the large pin and keeper pin,"Right Stuff" sealer makes a good cover gasket,3/8 drive for the fill plug,some gear iol and you're done,,not a bad job,no special tools required.

Does anyone know how to change seals on rear diff on 2003 frod expedition


if you need to change the axle seals here is the process. You need to remove the rear wheels. Remove the brake drums if so equipped. Remove the rear cover on the differential. Turn the differential until you find the bolt that holds the cross shaft in place. Remove the bolt and pull the cross shaft out. Then you will see the axle ends. Push the axle in towards the center of the axle. You will need to remove a C clip retainer from the axle end. You can then remove the axle and gain access to the seal. Repeat the process on the opposite side. Then reverse the disassembly process. Place the cover back onto the differential housing and refill the differential. Good luck.

(How do I replace rear bearings) chevy sliverado RWD


Check to see if the drum is hotter than normal. If the bearings are bad, you have to lift the truck and remove the axle. Remove the wheel drum until you get to the axle. They to remove the axle, you have to open the rear end Spider gear ***** at the middle. They have a half moon wedge or a clip you have to remove. They you pull out the axle.Replace the bearing grease it and seal it. Then put it back in the reverse order. Sounds simple but it is not that simple. Takes work
