You'll have to remove the rear diff. cover. Remove the tires and brake drums if equipped. There is an 8mm nut holding a rod in that is in the middle of the diff. After removing the set screw, the pin will want to slide out. Position the rear diff. in a way that you can see the axles clearly and still let the pin slide out. Once you remove the pin, you don't want to rotate the diff. Push the axles in to remove the "C" clips holding the axle in and slide the axle out. The "C" clip is located at the end of the inner part of the axles.

remove the 'locking bolt', once the pin is out the c-clips shoud fall out unless this is a floating axle in which the axles are attached at the hub.

SOURCE: remove front axle from differential on 2003 dodge ram

That works fine on a relatively new vehicle but one that has run in salt etc you'll save a lot of time if you remove the steering knuckle completey by separating lower ball joint and outer tie rod end ball joint and bring the whole steering knuckle to a bench to separate the hub/bearing. Soak everything with penetrant, loosen the bolts a few turns and try hitting right on the bolt heads. I also made a very sharp wedge from a chisel and rammed it hard on the other side to seoarate the hub. It will finally come apart then you'll see all the **** that was binding it due to an alumininum knuckle re-acting with a steel hub. Clean the hole and grease everything and fit new bearings

Remove wheel, remove rear diff cover, remove small bolt that retains spider gear cross shaft in the carrier. Push axle in, remove "c" clip on end of axle and remove axle from housing. Reverse to replace. Only problem you may have is that sometimes small bolt is broken inside carrier. if broken you will need to drill a tiny hole into it and remove with tiny "easy out" or other similar device.
Do not turn carrier when shaft has been removed or spider gears will rotate and fall out!

You may have to have half inch air impact gun to remove the spindle nut (in the center of the rotor). I'd make that the first task to undertake because your next task will be to remove lower ball joint. After you get that spindle nut loose, take a hammer, 32 oz. preferrably and whack area directly behind lower ball joint to coerce it in to loosening up. Then take a decent pry bar and lift up on the whole spindle assembly and if it don't release, go whack the front side in front of lower ball joint. After you get it to come free from lower A arm, take a pry bar and insert it in between the CV joint and transmission housing. Do not put a lot of pressure that will over stress the transmission case, just vigorously enough to get the CV joint to pop out of the circlips that holds it into transmission. Make sure when you put new one in that CV joint reseats all the way and reverse procedure is the same.

C Clips you mean. there is a pin in the middle of the ring gear. this pin must be removed and then you push in on each axle, then the clip may fall out, or you will need to remove it from the end of the axle. then you can pull the axle out. You dont say "why" you are replacing it, replace the axle bearing and seal.

Need to know where the rear axle pins are in 98 s10 blazer


No "axle pins". Axles are held in with "c" clips. Remove wheels. Remove drums (or rotors). Remove differential cover. Rotate axles or driveshaft until a small bolt running horizontally can be seen. It has an 8 millimeter head. Remove this bolt. It holds in a shaft that is about 1 inch in diameter an 3 inches long. Remove that shaft. Shove axle towards center of vehicle one at a time. C clip can now be removed from internal end of axle and axle can be slid out of axle housing. When axles are removed DO NOT ROTATE DRIVESHAFT OR CARRIER.

Need to know how to remove rear axle bearing


Remove the differential cover let fluid drain. While draining remove the tire on the side with the bad bearing. Remove the brake drum. remove the spider gears if it has a open diff. If not an open diff you will need to get a book at a parts house about $20. After removing spider gears remove the axle C-clip then pull the axle out. You will need a bearing seperator to remove the bearing. An oldschool trick for installing the new bearing with out a press is to stick the axle in a freezer for about 2 hours about 30 minutes before removing the axle put the bearing in an oven at 350 degrees (wear gloves when getting the bearing out) Quickly remove the axle and then remove the bearing and immediatly install the bearing it should drop onto the axle right where the old bearing was I like to take a puch and tat the inside of the bearing to make sure it has seated all the way.
Any questions please let me know
Have a great day

Does anyone know how to change seals on rear diff on 2003 frod expedition


if you need to change the axle seals here is the process. You need to remove the rear wheels. Remove the brake drums if so equipped. Remove the rear cover on the differential. Turn the differential until you find the bolt that holds the cross shaft in place. Remove the bolt and pull the cross shaft out. Then you will see the axle ends. Push the axle in towards the center of the axle. You will need to remove a C clip retainer from the axle end. You can then remove the axle and gain access to the seal. Repeat the process on the opposite side. Then reverse the disassembly process. Place the cover back onto the differential housing and refill the differential. Good luck.

Bent right rear RH axle 2001 prerunner 2wd.


Hello, and welcome to FixYa. Let me assist you as follows:
Removing the rear axle shaft is realy quite easy.
Her is what you need to do:

Remove the wheel/tire.
Remove the rear brake drum.
Remove the brake line to the rear wheel cylinder and plug the line.
Remove the park brake cable.
Remove the entire rear backing plate assembly; no need to remove the rear shoes.
When the backing plate is off, the axle shaft slides out of the axle housing; there are no "C" clips to remove, like on a Chevrolet. The axle is not held at the differential in any fashion.
Note that if you replace the axle shaft, you will need a machine shop to press the wheel bearings & seals onto the new shaft.

If you have any further questions; please feel free to respond.

Thanks for choosing FixYa for assistance; the graciousness of a FixYa rating for my instructions would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
