I lost my manual and I'm trying to locate a rear axle but I would like to see if I need the whole axle or just a part on the end of the axle. Where can I find a picture of this?

I hit the curb realy bad in an accident, my rear right side rim wabbles , I replaced the rim thinking it was jst the rim,!But I think its the axle!,shld I replace the whole rear end?

I dont know whar kind of vehicle or how many miles on it but if its rear wheel drive you can replace either. the rear end will cost more than an axle but if it has alot of miles on it plus you dont know about the rest of the componenents inside do the whole thing

You'll need to remove the rear end cover, remove the pin in the center pumpkin, push axle toward the center of vehicle and remove the axle clip, pull out axle. You may need a bearing puller to remove bearing.

Rear Axle

inside the rear end,you need to remove the rear inspection cover from the rear end.have it jacked up and blocked for safety,and put it in neutral,you will see a slide bar in the center of the rear end it goes in between the side gears.rotate the drive shaft around until you see the end of the round slide that has a 5/16 bolt going thru it. loosen that bolt but don't remove it yet,rotate the drive shaft until the slide bar is almost down at the bottom,but just enoughup to be pulled out and clear the housing.use your left thumb to hold slide bar from falling out while you remove the 5/16 bolt,now let the slide bar fall out to you while your pulling on it.
"VERY IMPORTANT"= don't let any one turn any rear wheels while the bar is out or you will sping the spider gears right up and out of the rear end.
Now have someone push the axle in towards you,when they do a C clip will fall of the axle,you will need to recover it with your fingers or a magnet ,You can now pull the axle out,you will see the groove the C clip was in,When you reinstall push the axle in onlt try not to turn it,you might have to a little to line the splines up,when the axle is pushed in the whole way,insert the C clip and you hold it there while someone pulls outward on the axle that will put the C clip in it's seat,then reinstall the slide bar,you may have to wiggle it a little or just barely turn the drive shaft to get it to go in,reinstall the 5/16 bolt and tighten,install new cover gasket and refill.good luck

Want to change a leaky seal on a axle shaft on

take off the housing cover in the middle of the rear end and to each side there is a retainer clip for each side. Pull it out and that side comes out. I don't think you needed to remove the rear end to do this though.

Axle came out of rear end

solution was to fing the 10 year old owners manual and look at the exploded diagram..and yes there was a clip holding the axle was the fun task of dropping the rear end and opening it all up.
Oh Boy!

You dont have to pull the whole rear end out. remove rear wheel and remove the brake drums. theres 4 nuts on the back side of the brake backing plate which holds the axles in. once you get the 4 nuts loose you can pull the axle out (might need some force to pull out). You should be able to take the differential cover out to inspect the gears.
