SOURCE: procedure for changing bent r rear axle on 1997

if it has the four bolts that have a flange piece on it also then its just a unbolt and pull one.another sign of the unbolt/pull type is there is no removable cover on the back of the diff. i never undo nothing but the 4 bolts. i leave twn in but real loose so when i yank on the axle it wont break nothing when it cuts loose all of a sudden.

Testimonial: "thanks for the answer, good idea about leaving bolts loose so as not to do damage."

How do I change rear axle seal on 1991 dodge Dakota 4×4?


Remove the wheel and tire.

Remove the drum.

Drain the rear and remove the cover.

Locate the 8mm bolt locking in the center pin and remove it.

Slide the pin out 1/2 way. DO NOT SPIN EITHER AXLE WHILE THE PIN IS OUT.

Push the axle in from the outside. You will hear the "c" clip fall in the rear. Put the center pin back in the rear and thread the bolt a couple turns.

Slide the axle out.

Remove the outer seal and install the new one.

Reverse the procedure REMEMBERING to put the "C" clip back in.

(Slide the center pin 1/2 way out. Install the axle FULLY. install the "C" clip and pull the axle from the outside to insure the clip is in. DO NOT SPIN THE AXLE until the center pin is reinstalled and the retaining bolt is in.)

How difficult is it to replace the rear axle seal on a 2002 jeep cherokee


it depends on which rear axle you have. on the 198 you have to remove the rear drums and remove the four nuts that hold the axle and seal in; and on the 8 1/4 you have to take off the differential cover and the center pin so that you could remove the c-clips that hold the axle in place. I have procedures for both but I need to know which one you have. the 198 requires drilling and presswork, the 8 1/4 requires a pry bar and a hammer.

Axle Housing Assembly Removal & Installation To Remove:
Exploded view of the rear axle mounting 88457g85.gif

  1. Raise and support the rear of the vehicle safely using jackstands under the frame. Position a floor jack or a second set of jackstands to support the rear axle housing. If a floor jack is being used, take care when removing the U-bolts to keep the axle from suddenly dislodging.
  2. Remove the rear wheels and drums for clearance and to remove some weight from the axle housing.
  3. If equipped, remove the axle vibration dampener.
  4. Matchmark and remove the rear driveshaft from the pinion flange. Either remove the shaft completely from the vehicle or support it aside from the undercarriage using safety wire, but DO NOT allow the shaft to hang from the slip joint.
  5. Remove the shock absorber-to-axle housing retainers, then swing the shock absorbers away from the axle housing.
  6. Disconnect the brake lines from the axle housing clips and the backing plates (wheel cylinders). NOTE: When disconnecting the brake lines from the wheel cylinders, immediately plug or cap the lines to prevent system contamination or excessive fluid loss.
  7. If applicable, unplug the speed sensor connectors at the junction block.
  8. Disconnect the parking brake cable(s).
  9. Disconnect the axle housing-to-spring U-bolt nuts, washers. U-bolts and the anchor plates.
  10. Remove the vent hose from the top of the axle housing.
  11. Remove the axle with the help of an assistant by moving it to clear the leaf spring, or if desired, the leaf springs can be disconnected from the frame at the rear end to lower the axle down and back, but first refer to the leaf spring procedures for information regarding spring installation and removal.
To Install:
  1. With the help of an assistant, carefully position the rear axle into the vehicle.
  2. Connect the vent hose to the axle housing.
  3. Be sure the housing is properly positioned on the leaf spring, then loosely install the U-bolts, anchor plates, washers and nuts.
    • Tighten the U-bolt nuts in a cross pattern to 18 ft. lbs. (25 Nm) to make sure everything is evenly seated. Then tighten the nuts in steps to 41 ft. lbs. (55 Nm) on 1994-95 models or 74 ft. lbs. (100 Nm) on 1996 and later models.
  4. Remove the caps from the brakes lines then connect the lines and secure them to the axle housing.
  5. If removed, connect the parking brake cable(s).
  6. If applicable, attach the speed sensor connectors to the junction block.
  7. Align and install the driveshaft assembly. Refer to the procedure earlier in this section for details.
  8. Install the shock absorbers to the lower mounts, then tighten the mount nuts.
  9. If equipped, install the axle vibration dampener.
  10. Install the brake drums and the tire/wheel assemblies.
  11. Properly refill the brake master cylinder and bleed the hydraulic brake system.
  12. Check the fluid level in the rear axle assembly and add, as necessary. Make sure the vehicle is level when checking and adding fluid.
  13. Remove the jackstands and carefully lower the truck.

How do you take apart the pasnager rear axle?


You need to remove the rear wheel and brake drum, support the axle housing with a good jackstand. Remove the rear diff cover and find the bolt that goes through one end of the spider gear shaft (smaller gears in center section) Be careful when removing shaft or turning gears that the small gears don't walk out of the housing. Once the shaft has been removed, push the axle in and remove the retaining clip on the inside end, then pull axle out. Reverse procedure to install.

1989 chevy 3500 4x4 454 rear brake drum removal. Does the axle bolts need to be removed


Can you tell me which type of axle you have?

Full Floating Axles To remove the drums from full floating rear axles, use the Axle Shaft Removal & Installation procedure in Section 7. Full floating rear axles can readily be identified by the bearing housing protruding through the center of the wheel.


Semi-Floating Axles
  1. Raise and support the rear end on jack stands.
  2. Remove the wheel.
  3. Pull the drum from the brake assembly. If the brake drums have been scored from worn linings, the brake adjuster must be backed off so that the brake shoes will retract from the drum. The adjuster can be backed off by inserting a brake adjusting tool through the access hole provided. In some cases the access hole is provided in the brake drum. A metal cover plate is over the hole. This may be removed by using a hammer and chisel.

You may have to back off the automatic adjuster before you can pull the drum from the brake assembly

To install, reverse the removal procedure.
