It is a job without a wheel puller or some heavy equipment nearby. Some cars you have to release the axle from the rear, take off the cover and pull a slip pin out, then remove all the bolts holding the wheels, brakes, hub, drum, whatever you have back there, and there is usually 4 bolts through the housing thing there. Take a big chain, bolt it to a lug stud, get a pair of gloves on and give a couple good yanks, it should snatch out of there, If not, give it a couple more good jolts with the chain, gotta release the seal and pull the bearing out with the axle. Some cars you don't have to mess with the rear end, but it makes it easier to get back in sometimes when the cover is off. Hope this helps.

Rear axel removal on a 2006 Ford Escape


If the axles are C-clipped in place, you will have to remove the differential cover to access the clips, which are on the inside of the spider gears.
However, I am just taking a guess, because I cannot see the vehicle you are working on, nor am I familiar with a Ford Escape.

How do i remove a rear differential and replace it with a true trac posie and do i have to remove the axels


If you are replacing the differential only, yes, remove the axles. Otherwise, find a shell, build it on a bench and then swap the assemblies. Its much easier.

The axle from a jeep 4x4 is broke , both axles, how do i take out the rest of the parts?


The front axel is a two piece assy. remove the 4wd
shift moter from the axel housing. Once the moter
and fork are off , remove outer axel.To remove inner
axel, remove differential cover and let it drain.
There is a C clip on the axel, remove it and work the
axel out through the axel tube.(if it is broken)
To remove the rear axel. Remove diff. cover and drain.
Remove the pinion lock nut(or spring clip) and slide
back pinion shaft. Remove retaining clip from axel
and remove axel. To remove broken piece I use to
use a length of an old whip antenna, to push it out.
If you can find a piece of heavy gauge wire to push
it out.(a plumbers snake may work)Also only have
one axel at a time out of either housing, this will
make it easier to reinstall the axels.
I hope I was of some help. Good luck.

Wheel, brakes etc that are in way of pulling axle out have to come off. Drain rear end fluid, remove rear housing cover, remove bolt that holds pin in differential, remove differential pin, push in slightly on axle to remove "U" clip that holds shaft in, then slide shaft out. replace seal. Reverse procedure for re-install & fill with gear lube. If any questions, get back to us.

Leaking left rear wheel seal.


Loosen differential cover and let oil drain. Remove cover, remove E clip lock from axel. Pull axel out. Remove bearing seal. Install new seal and reinstall axel. Reinstall E clip lock and new cover gasket. Fill with 75-90wt gear oil. Now I know that sound pretty straight forward. But there are some things to remember. The E clip lock can be difficult to remove sometimes. The most important thing is the seal, you will need to make sure it gets seated correctly and not torn when installing axel
