There is a "c" clip on the inboard end of the axle inside the differential gear carrier. To get to it you need to punch out the roll pin that holds the spider gear cross shaft in the carrier and slide that shaft out, then push the axle in and remove the clip. Careful not to let the spider gears walk out if you turn the center section!!.

How to replace a rear axle bearing

That's a big job that requires a lot of shop tools. You'll need at least a 2 ton floor press to get the bearing off the axle once you have it off the car. To get it off the car you'll need to take the cover off the rear end exposing the gears. Don't forget to put a drain pan under it before you remove the bolts. There is a screw that holds the horseshoe clamp on the end of the axle. You must remove this or the axle won't come out. Next, at the wheel end of the axle there are 4 bolts that hold the bearing cover on. Take them off and try pulling on the axle. If it won' come off , you'll need a puller to get it off. Using the floor press, support the bearing and push the axle off the bearing. Do the opposite to push the bearing on and reinstall everything.

Trying to change a bad alternator that is on the bottom

must be a v-6?

You will need to remove the drive axle on the passenger side in order to get enough room to pull the alternator out. Its not to bad to do.

Separate the lower ball joint from the passenger front knuckle.

remove the axle nut and push the axle out of the hub.

remove the two bolts that hold the carrier bearing on the drive axle to the support bracket.

You will then be able to remove the entire axle from the vehicle. Have a drip pan ready to catch any trans fluid that may come out of the opening the axle goes into on the transmission.

Once the axle is out of the way you can remove the three bolts that hold the alternator in place. the top one only needs to be loose as the hole in the alt should be sloted. Unplug the connector and remove the battery cable from the alt. It will be a rubix cube but there will be a position that the alt will need to be in that will allow the alt drop come out of the opening left by the removal of the drive axle.

Remove the rear cover. Remove the 5/16 (8mm) bolt that holds the center pin and slide the pin out. Push in on the axle (from the outer stud/drum end). When the "C" clips fall out (inside of the rear-Pumpkin) that hold the semi-floating axle in place, slide the axle out. The gears should come right out.

I need to remove the front axle out of the differential on a 2003 Dodge Ram 1500? What is the best way to pull it out. I already have the half shaft taken off I just cant get the solid axle out of the...

when removing the front axle i believe that you must open the front differential cover and inside the dana you will see a small 8mm bolt located on the spider gear center it holds the pin bar in place and the pin bar holds both the upper and lower gears in place with a small washer below them. be careful when you pull the pin bar out to make sure the gears stay in place (upper and lower) do not let the washer fall out of the spider cage assembly. Then, carefully slide the U pin that holds the axle in (there are two of them one for the left axle and one for the right). Once the U pin slides off the axle the axle should slide all the way out of the whole differential - Note if the U pin you see at the end of the axle does not come off easy just push the axle IN ward towards the center of the differential and then slide it out with a small screw driver ..

Axle replacement

There is a clip on the inner axle spline that holds it in the tranny, the best way is to remove the tire,axle nut, and lower ball joint. The outer should come free when you push the knuckle foreward or backward. then you need 2 big screwdrivers or prybars and put them between the tranny and axle, one on each side and push equally. it is tight but will come out. Thanks
