SOURCE: need to remove rear axle on 67 camaro can't locate c clips

some older cars do not have c lips. you need to jack up car and place on jack stands withe the whelles off the ground. remove rims/tires. remove drum brakes. remove rear end cover. you need a drain pan under it. you need the car in neutral. spin axle. look in rear end. posi or not you will see the large pin that goes through the middle of the diff. one end of the pin is held in by a bolt. reomve the bolt. spin the diff down. slide the pin out. in side the diff on each side are spider gears. with the pin out push the axle in. this will push the clip so you can pull it off of tha axle and spider gera. then pull axle out. noe an easy or claen job but very doable.

SOURCE: how do you remove c clips on rear axle on 2003

You will need to support the vehilce on Jackstands, remover the rear wheels, remove the differential cover. You will see a pin retaining the spider gears in the diff, this pin is held in place with a bolt. Carefully remove this bolt, you may need to spin the carrier to access it, once the bolt is removed (should be an 8mm) you can slide the pin out, and push in on the axles ( you may need to disassemble the brakes to do this) and the c-clips can be removed, and the axles can be pulled from the truck.

SOURCE: rear differential axle removal

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: Rear axle bearing replacment

Not 100% sure on that vehicle & don't have manual on it at this time, but will say very common that it does have "C" like clip at end of axle. Large pin comes out first, then push axle in slightly & remove clip, & slide axle out.

You are going to have to pry it over the axle on one side of the park brake shoe assembly with either a pry bar or screwdriver. then just pop the new one back over the axle in the same way. Hope this helps

Rear lift door on my 2004 Denali Yukon (SWB)will not stay up. Both lift rods seemed to have failed simultaneously. Can they be fixed or must they be replaced?


They need to be changed. Buy 2 new gas springs, support the gate, and pop off clips holding them on. Install new ones with clips provided and remove support. I just did this on my Focus a couple of months ago. Easy fix.

Rear axle removal on a 2004 f150 fx4


First thing is to make sure you chock the front tires so the truck will not roll. Raise the rear end and set it on jack stands. Put the transmission in Neutral and make sure the parking brake is off. Remove the rear tires and disassemble the brakes on the side with the leaking seal. Place a drain pan under the rear differential and remove the cover. Remove the differential shaft lock bolt. You will need to turn the drive shaft by hand to access the bolt. It will be on the right side off the spider gear housing. Only use a 5/16 or 8mm 6 point box end wrench to remove the bolt. After you remove the bolt reach on the top of the spider gear housing and push the differential lock shaft down to remove it. Make sure the spider gears do not rotate after you remove the shaft. If they do you will need to realign everything to reinstall the lock shaft. Push the axle shaft in enough to remove the "C" clip from the tip of it. The axle will now slide out of the rear end. You can use the tip of the axle shaft to remove the axle seal. If you're changing the bearing as well you will need a slide hammer with axle bearing adapters to remove it. You can use a socket and hammer to install the new bearing and seal. Be careful not to damage the bearing and seal. I recommend packing grease in the back side of the seal. This helps prevent the spring on the seal lip from coming off. Assembly is the reverse. Clean off all the gear oil from the differential cover and the axle. You can use RTV as a gasket if the OEM gasket is damaged. Fill the rear end with new gear oil of the proper type. Refer to your owner's manual.

GM has an issue with dash clusters since 2002 and the company will not admit to it. We pay $250 each time to swap out the clusters. Let me know what city you are in and I will find you a company locally that replaces clusters.

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

2005 Yukon Front Diff Axle seals


You don't have to remove the whole diff to change the seals, but you will have to seperate it where the shaft meets the carrier housing. There is a clip holding the passenger axle shaft in place that you have to remove to change the seal. The drivers side axle stub can be removed with a little force as there is a spring clip holding that side in.
