Call and clarify with them. They may have shaved in order to remove bearings from the old pinion. I doubt they shaved to install new ones on. Typically those bearings are a light press-on fit. At any rate, they aren't charging you for the second repair? Sometimes rear ends can be a pain to get right. Especially if it's not a shop that specializes in differential rebuilds.

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. jack up the truck and support the axle with two jackstands
                                                            2. remove your wheels, differential cover(use an oil pan for fluid is going to spill everywhere)
                                                            3. remove your roll pin, it has a small bolt (use 1/4 inch drive with socket to save yourself from living hell)  (inside the gear carrier with the four small gears (it is ok to spin the axle at this time (remove your driveshaft or chauk the wheels and put the car in 2 wheel drive and in neutral)
                                                            4. after the pin is removed, DO NOT SPIN THE AXLES, push the axles toward the differential, remove the "C" clips at the end of each axle shaft, then slide your axles out of the axle tube.
                                                            5. now, unbolt the two carrier holding clamps (4 large bolts) and carefully remove the carrier, on each end of your carrier should be 2 out of the four bearings that could need replacing. (note that without specialized precision tools this will be impossible to reassemble correctly, this is concidered to be an "A" grade technitian's job in the work force) (reply back if you want a list of tools and tests you will need in order to get your differential working again)
                                                            6. remove the driveshaft if you havent done so already and unbolt the pinion gear nut (hidden inside the driveshaft yolk attached to the differential) (an impact gun is recommended because the pinion will spin and if you try to hold it, it will cut open your hands) then carefully slide the pinion out of the large opening in your differential.
                                                            7. the last two of four differential bearings will be here, previously supporting your pinion gear + shaft. they will fall out but you will need a brass punch and hammer to remove the outer bearing races that have been pressed into your differential.
                                                            8. clean the now open differential cavity plus gears with brak-kleen or other grease and oil remover then wipe clean with a lint free rag.(inspect for any damage and replace if nessisary)
                                                            9. hammer your pinion gear races in EVENLY and in the right spot, double check that everything came out in the same order that your about to put them in.
                                                            10. install new bearings and find (i couldnt tell you where) a new crush collar for your pinion gear.
                                                            11.after your pinion bearings are in, put your new pinion oil seal into the differential (a wooden board or any other flat stock will help) and hammer in evenly. (oil the seal before installing)
                                                            12. take off the old crush collar and install the new one (note the size difference)
                                                            13. when the pinion is in, reinstall the driveshaft yolk and tighten the pinion nut to 250-350 foot pounds (no you do not need glasses, you read that correctly)
                                                            14. (here is where the presicion work begins on your new differential) if you want to take it to a professional i do not blame you. if you really feel you can do this on your own, ask for the last 10-20 steps and ill gladly give them to you.

                                                            Hope this helps!

                                                            Axcel rear noisy


                                                            Your carrier bearings and possibly the pinion bearings are the source if the noise is a low pitched grumble or gravelly noise that starts just about 20 mph and up. If it is louder when quickly changing lanes to the left, it is probably the right wheel bearing, and if it is louder when changing lanes to the right, it is the left wheel bearing. If it is a whine that is really annoying at 45-65 mph, your ring and pinion are probably worn beyond their design specification limit. If your U-joints are OK, but you can hear a loud clunk from the rear when you get on and off the throttle, you definitely have play in your ring and pinion. Have the cover removed and you can sheck this easily. I have worked on several Jeep Grand Cherokee differentials, and the ring an pinion has needed replacing on them all. A few had bad bearings, too. You should probably replace the bearings and the ring and pinion, because the labor is nearly the same and the parts are just a bit more. If you look through the forums on the www you will find many people that replaced the bearings to fix the grumble, only to finish the job and find out they also have the whine.
