    The above is only one type of three in the manual. I'm not sure if you have the 1500 or 2500 Yukon XL.

I'm looking to replace the rear axle on my 1997 4 door 4x4 GMC Yukon 3.73 gears would a rear axle from a 1998 Yukon 4door 4x4 with 3.73 gears bolt directly to my 1997 Yukon


yes
the housings will be the same
clue here --if the diff center comes into the housing from the front not a problem
if it comes in from the rear ( tin cover removed ) replace the complete housing as you will have to have expertise in resetting the bearing pre-loads for the diff center bearings

2000 gmc yukon no rear tail lights but brake light works


I had the same problem with my 2000 Yukon. I disassembled the tail light and pulled the bulb contact strip out. The dielectric grease on the sockets were dried up and hard. It had caused a loose connection and overheated the plastic. I managed to clear the old grease out with a pick tool and brake cleaner. I put in new grease and it still works. I noticed later that Advance Auto has the contact strip for sale. I hope this helps.

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 Seal & Bearing on 1999 GMC Safari Van


Yes you do have to pull the axle and make sure you put everything back in the same place you removed it from. The ring and pinion shouldn't have to be bothered. You will have to remove the rear end cover to remove the axle. Its very easy to do. There is a pin inside the rear end that has to be removed to pull the axle. Pay attention to how you take it out and put it back the same way. It sounds as if you can do this with no problem.
