What you do is push the axle inboard in which gives you access to the clip and use a magnate to remove the clip.

If your familiar with this repair there are no tricks. It involves removing the rear differential cover, removing the spider gear lock pin and retainer clip from the axle shaft before removing the axle shaft from the Jeep.

97 jeep. Removing front wheel bearing


Most times you can squirt some wd40 on the ends of the axle spline, then put the axle nut on backwards so the castellated side is towards the bearing hub and run it onto the threads till the axle and nut are flush. (So you don't damage the threads or mushroom the end of the axle.) Once you have done that you can give it a really hard shot with a decent sledge hammer (two lb or heavier) striking it as squarely as possible. I have never had one refuse to come apart when I do this!!!

Drivers side rear axle is leaking, not brake fluid, has disc brakes, what do i need to do to replace seal?


i will tell you right off this is a job for a qualified mechanic,the axle has to be pulled off first you jack up that wheel dismantle the brakes and rotor and behind the axle hub are four bolts that hold on the axle remove them and axle will come off the rear end cover does not have to come off and the axle fluid also does not have to come out,but now that axle is out you will notice that a wheel bearing is holding the seal in place this is pressed in you can buy these as a set at the dealer but must be removed by a pro. as not to harm axle and it has to be pressed back in

Replace the rear wheel bearing


better check a manual, The ones I have done do not have c-clips in the diff. You remove 4 nuts behind the brake backing plate, then use a slide hammer to pull out the axle shafts. Then the bearing retainer must be removed (cut or drill into it, the crack it with a hammer blow from a chisel), it should slide off the axle. Then use a bearing splitter and a press to remove the bearing. To install use a long pipe and press to install the new bearing and retainer. Change the seal while your in there. Hope this helps.

Replacing a rear axle on a 94 jeep grand cherokee 2wd


take the rear cover off of the rear end. make sure you have something to let the fluid drain in. turn the carrier until you see a 5/16ths bolt. take the bolt out and let the pin in the center of the carrier slide down enough to be able to slide the axle inward. that will release the c-clip. then when the c-clip i removed you can just pull the axle out of the houseing but mak sure to not let the carrier spin any while you are pulling the axle out.

REAR AXLE SEAL LEAKING ONTO BRAKE SHOES NEED INSTRUCTIONS ON HOW TO FIX


Jack up vehicle and support on stands. Remove wheels. Remove differential cover . Locate and remove lock pin that holds cross shaft in. Slide cross shaft out. Push axle inward to release axle c clip. Remove axle and pry out old seal. Install new seal with proper tool.Add some lube to the seal lip to aid axle intallation. Revese removal procedure. This is for a "c" type axle.
Another type has 4 nuts attaching a retainer plate to the backing plate behind the axle flange. In this case the 4 nuts are removed and the axle will come out. This may require a little effort. I think that you have a "c" type axle in your vehicle. Hope this helps. Moe

RELACING WHEEL BEARINGS IN A 95 JEEP GRAND


Front wheel bearings can be done at home rear wheel bearings will require a hydraulic press and an axle puller. Either job can be difficult depending on amount of rust and availability of tools. The front wheel bearings are an assembly and once the jeep is up on jack stands, with the tires, brake calipers, and rotors removed, it is only a matter of removing the axle nut and 3 bolts (which can be difficult depending on rust) holding in the old bearing assembly
