How do you change a wheel seal on a mercury mountaneer 1998 rear end


Axle Vent
NOTE: If the vent cannot be cleared, it must be installed new.
A plugged vent will cause excessive seal lip wear due to internal pressure buildup. If a leak occurs, check the vent. Make sure the vent hose is not kinked. Remove the hose from the vent nipple and clear the hose of any foreign material. While the hose is removed, pass a length of mechanics wire or a small diameter Allen wrench in and out of the vent to clean it. Connect the hose when done. The vent is located on the drivers side top of axle housing.
If you plan on doing most repairs yourself I would suggest buying a Haynes or Chilton manual for your particular vehicle. Or there are some data disks on e.bay($12-$15) For a cost of under $25, you can almost do any repair yourself with these manuals.Also there are online manuals like the site called ALLDATA where guides can be viewed for a fee. All these solutions will save you time and money, and give peace of mind over correct repairs. I can post you some procedures here also.
  1. CAUTION: Do not use heat to loosen a seized lug nut. Heat can damage the wheel (1007) and the rear wheel bearings (1225).
  2. Loosen the lug nuts (1012).

  4. With the weight of the vehicle on the wheels, loosen the lug nuts Raise and support the vehicle. .Remove the wheel and tire assembly.

                                                            To change the rear seal, yo will need to raise and support the rear of the vehicle. Remove the wheels and drums or rotors (depending on drum or disc brakes.) Remove the rear differential cover bolts and the cover (have a drain pan under the differential) You will likely need to turn the driveshaft so the center pin bolt is acessible at the back or the differential. This is a 5/16" (or 8mm) bolt that is on the right (passenger) side of the differential carrier assembly. I recommend a new bolt be installed here on reassembly. Once the retaining bolt is out, slide the center pin out enough to allow the axle shafts to be pushed in toward the center of the diff. to remove the "C" clips that retain the axle shafts in the carrier assembly. Be careful if you happen to pull the center pin all the way out not to allow the carrier assembly (has the ring gear mounted on it) to turn, as this can rotate the spider gears out of alignment causing a headache on reassembly. With the "C" clip removed the axle shaft can be pulled out of the diff. Inspect the bearing area of the shaft for rust, pitting, or scoring. Remove the old seal and carefully install the new one. Reverse proceedures to install. Take care to note the "C" clips and center pin bolt are properly reinstalled. Fill with 2.5 to 3 quarts of rear axle grease for you vehicle.
                                                            good luck.

                                                            You will have to remove the rear end cover then turn over by hand you will see a metal pin going through the smaller spider gears in the center there should be a small bolt there with a 5/16 head remove the bolt and then the metal pin then push in ward on the axles and a c plip will fall out only do 1 side at a time and do not rotate the axles other wise the gears will fall out and you will have another problem.
