SOURCE: Replace rear Axel !999 Ford F150 2 Wheel Drive

Fairly simple job...Unbolt everything connected to it, take it out, put new one in and replace everything you unbolted. Support the frame, so you can get the unit out and nothing but the diff comes down after all hardware is out. Most bolts are really tight and rusted , so be prepared to have them fight you and when getting one from junkyard, ask if you can have the hardware with the unit so you have spares on hand.
When buying the replacement, make sure it has the correct size driveshaft yoke on it.
This is a good opportunity to custom tailor the diff to your needs...count the ring gear teeth on yours and then divide by the number of teeth on the pinion this gives you the ratio. If you do a lot of low speed driving and pulling loads, you may want to change to a 3.90 ratio or even a 4.11. If you do a lot of long high speed driving, go to a 2 series rear ratio. If you are happy with what you had, match that. (changes require speedometer gear change or it will be a bit off)
Always change the diff lube when you change a diff. Never buy one without removing the cover and looking at gears and checking for fine metal in the lube.
Good luck!

I assume you mean trans axle seals in front.
You have to remove the drive axles,best done on a lift,not in your driveway.
Trans fluid lubes the Diff,that is in trans.
ATF4 etc,whatever the fluid replaced the original spec, when it was new.

Rear axel leaking ford 1997 f 250


If it's leaking then it needs a gasket put on or RTV GASKET MAKER put on the cover or it's just simply cracked some how if it's the cover then take a drop pan drain the remaining fluid and clean both surfaces very good possibly spotless then apply the RTV high torque grey sealant gasket maker very thick around the edge and center where the bolts are and re apply the cover but make sure it lines up and is very clean inside also if it's a slip posi rear end you will need a bottle of friction conditioner and 3 1/2 bottles of motor craft differentail fluid as recommended by ford and remove the filler plug after the RTV is dry and refill the rear axel and if it remains to leak either you sealed the cover wrong or bad plug otherwise the axel is cracked and needs to be replaced

Fluid leak on inside of rear driver side tire


More than likely it's either break fluid or axel lube. Axel lube will smell really strong and if it's leaking out it will build up on the breaks and make the rear tire skid under heavy breaking. It is also very thick. Break fluid is thin and has almost no smell.

How to remove rear axle from a 2000 mercury marquis to replace bearing have wheel off and calibers


Open the rear end, and take out keeper that holds the axel in..

if you push on the axel a bit and feel it slide into the rearend, that will show you the keeper at the other end...

Remember to have a catchpan under the rearend when takeing the cover off, as the fluid will drain out, and make sure to replace the fluid, (can't tell you how many get in a hurry and forget that part) Check with Ford to make sure what type fluid it is, (synth mix, full synth, or standard 80/90)

Rear Axel Seal


Wheel, brakes etc that are in way of pulling axle out have to come off. Drain rear end fluid, remove rear housing cover, remove bolt that holds pin in differential, remove differential pin, push in slightly on axle to remove "U" clip that holds shaft in, then slide shaft out. replace seal. Reverse procedure for re-install & fill with gear lube. If any questions, get back to us.
