Plenetry gear system is broken in rear axle whats Problem


Remove wheel, remove rear diff cover, remove small bolt that retains spider gear cross shaft in the carrier. Push axle in, remove "c" clip on end of axle and remove axle from housing. Reverse to replace. Only problem you may have is that sometimes small bolt is broken inside carrier. if broken you will need to drill a tiny hole into it and remove with tiny "easy out" or other similar device.
Do not turn carrier when shaft has been removed or spider gears will rotate and fall out!

What should the back lash on a 2004 F150 rear diff 3L55 8.8 be? On the spider gears


You do not even need a dial indicator to set the backlash.
Just make sure you put the side shims back in on the same side they came out of.
Remove your ring gear from the your carrier.
Remove the ring gear from the carrier from the other truck and put your ring gear on it.
Torque the bolts with thread locker on them.

To get your carrier out:
Loosen the the two bolts at each top corner and remove all the rest of the bolts from the cover.
Put a pan under it and brake the seal and let it drain into the pan and when its done take the cover off.
Remove the wheels and drums.
Remove the pinion pin retaining bolt.
Remove the pinion pin.
Push both axles in.
Remove both "U" retainers from the axles.
Pull both axles out.
Remove the bearing retaining bolts and caps.
Mark the shims so you can put them back in on the side they came out of.
Pry the carrier out with a block of wood at the mating surface of the cover so you do not hurt it with the pry bar.
Put the LS carrier in and drive your shims back in on the side they came out of.
Install the bearing caps and bolts and torque to what is called for.
Push the axles back in and put the "U" retainers on them.
Put every thing else back to in place.
Use RTV for a gasket on the back cover.
Put some LS friction modifier in the rear end and then fill it.

My notes:
Things I have learned about 8.8 Rear Ends that were set up by the FORD FACTORY and not touched by anybody.
Well i hope this helps.

How to remove a rear end axle and change a rear wheel seal?


Remove the rear diff cover (use a pan under there ...it's full of gear lube).Rotate the diff till you can see the pin that holds the spider gears in place. At one end of the pin, you will find either a roll pin or small bolt that retains it. Either drive the pin out or un bolt it (depends on what you have), then remove the pin. (careful when rotating carrier after it's out or, the spider gears will fall out. After it's out, DO NOT rotate the carrier or the same thing can happen. Dont turn the driveshaft or axle). Push the axle in and the "c" retainer on the axle will fall out. If not, help it a bit so it does. You can then remove the axle and access the seal.
After the seal is out, check to make sure there isn't any metal debris behind it. That indicates that not only the seal is bad but the bearing as well. Keep the new seal square with the axle tube so it goes in straight. Put some lube on the seal so it doesn't self destruct before lube reaches it. Remainder of the job is the reverse of removal. Don't forget to re-fill the diff before using it.

Front and back berring dissassembly of differential 2001 dodge 1500


For the rear diff., remove the driveshaft, brake drums, diff. cover, remove pinion flange nut, move diff carrier to access side gear retainer bolt and remove bolt, slide side gear pin out and push axles in to remove axle retainers and remove axels. Mark carrier bearing retainers, spin bearing retainers to loosen carrier for removal. Remove carrier, remove pinion out of diff case, then r&r bearings. Any shims should be replaced in their original location for depth and pinion to ring contact.

Need to know where lock pins are for the rear axle .need to pull axle


The lock pins you are looking for is actually a "c" clip that is on the inboard end of the axle inside the diff housing. There is a drift pin that holds the cross shaft for the spider gears in the carrier at one end. You need to drive out the pin and then slide out the cross shaft. Push in on the axle and you can then remove the clip. Don't turn the carrier after removing the cross shaft or the spider gears will walk out. If you need to turn it, put your finger in the hole and turn gently so you don't hurt your finger.(trans in neutral and both rear wheels off the ground.)

How do you remove c clips on rear axle on 2003 yukon 2 wheel drive rear end


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.

Rear Wheel Bearings - Diagram


It would help a lot if I knew what kind of vehicle you have!!! If you have a vehicle with a rear differential, the diff cover must be removed. You will find a small bolt on the left side of the carrier that retains a large pin that goes through the spider gears. To remove axle, remove that small bolt, slide the pin out, then push the axle in. Remove the "c" clip on the axle end and slide axle out. DO NOT turn diff after removing pin or spider gears will fall out. Sometimes the small bolt is sheared off & when you remove it the end remains in the carrier. If this happens, you need to drill (very small bit) it out & remove with easy out or other removal tool.
If these instructions don't apply to what you have, it's because you did not say what you are working on!!!
