It is the pinion yoke flange to the driveshaft. NO you can not cut it off. A large nut in the middle of it has to be removed. The nut attaches to the pinion driven gearand if cut off a new gear will be needed

    As long as the pinion seal doesn't leak,forget it. Pretty much a dust shield to protect seal.

    If it is very loose and sloppy it will destroy the seal in due time and the fluid will leak out.. Find a way to get it tight like using a very heavy wire wrapped between the protector and the yoke. Make it uniform in size since it may cause an unbalanced feature upon driving

Need to remove the ring gear assy to replace the pinion shaft bearing


The ring gear is bolted to what is called a ring gear carrier, the carrier is bolted inside the rear end housing with two bolts on each side, it is shimmed on each side to adjust backlash and pinion depth so DON'T mix up the left and right carrier shims, once the carrier is out with the ring gear attached you can remove the pinion shaft and drive out the bearing races of the pinion bearings. You also need to remove the pinion flange where the drive shaft U-Joint attaches, just hammer it off with a brass faced hammer (a steel hammer will run the flange) once the large center nut is removed.

I went to have my rear u joints done and the guy bent the pinion ...I couldn't get him to fix the problem and he refused to finish repairing the truck...I need a quick fix for leaking rear...


wow sorry about that. well there is no grease or quick fix for that, the pinion seal will have to be replaced. with the drive shaft removed you can remove the nut holding the yoke to the pinion gear (rear end) ,pop out the old seal and drive in the new seal, then reinstall the yoke and torque down the nut and reinstall the drive shaft. fluid loss while replacing the seal should be minimal but if you do lose fluid you may need to refill.

1984 Toyota pickup leaking fluid where the drive line connects to the differential. Bought the rear seal. What is involved in replacing it.


tearing the rear-end apart, replacing that seal, you might as well have new bearings put in as well!
Also this is a more "advanced" repair, having to use plastigauge(or equivalent) to get your clearences EXACT!!!
Good luck

Leaking fluid from rear end


hello, fluid leaking out of rear end is probably the pinion shaft seal, its were the drive shaft hooks to the rearend, you have to drop drive shaft, take yoke off rearend, or if it is,more further towards the back,were wheels are, then you need axle shaft seal, you have one on both sides on the rearend, behind the drums, where the back brakes are, also look and see if its coming from back of transmission, where drive shaft goes into the transmission, see if you can tell what color fluid is, if its red, its probably rear transmission seal, where drive shaft goes into the transmission.

Need torque specs for the pinion nuton rearend!!!!!!


If your car is a rear wheel drive, and you mean the nut that's just after your drive shaft, then...If you are replacing the seal, you need to mark the nut and the shaft so that when you re-assemble it you tighten the nut just a 1/4 " past the original mark. The reason is there is a crush collar that compresses inside on your pinion shaft to give it a little resistance. This is measured using a beam type inch pound torque wrench. I hope this might answer some questions. Setting up a pinion once removed requires a new crush collar, and the inch pounds of resistance are a little different between new bearings, or if you reuse the old ones.

Rear axle vibration


If you have that much play in the pinion, your pinion is getting worn, or the nut is loose. You may be able to find a rear end at an auto wrecker cheaper than anything.

1995 jgc limited rear end noise


If you removed the pinion and only replaced one of the bearings that was a mistake. You need to replace both at the same time. Also since it is a Dana differential you should have replace the crush sleeve also as this set the correct preload on the pinion bearings.
