Typically the "axle" you are referring to is spring loaded. It's very much like the spring-loaded pin on a watch band.

You need to push one end of the "axle" in so that it gets shorter and you can then pull the axle out and remove the flip part. It can be a tricky thing! Be patient when you are dong this so you don't break anything else.

Becareful - the flex cable runs through there as well. If you don't have a replacement flex cable, you want to make sure you don't damage the one you have. Hopefully the new screen came with a new flex cable attached.

Good luck!

Greasing the axle

The front wheels don't use axles, instead they use roller bearings similar to auto wheel bearings. Scooter front wheel bearings are usually sealed bearings or shielded. If the bearing is stiff or ruff and a sealed bearing you must replace it. Sometimes you can revive a shielded bearing by soaking in carburetor cleaner rotating soaking rotating soaking until the bearing runs smooth. Then you repack the bearing with grease. To repack a bearing you must place some heavy grease in the palm of your hand. Hold the bearing at a 45 degree angle to your palm. Catch some grease between your palm and the inside of the bearing race. Force the grease between the race and the shield until you see grease coming out the other side. Do this all the way around the bearing The rear wheel are normally mounted to the trans-axle. The manufacturer considers this to be a sealed unit however you can open it. Remove the Allen head screws and split the axle case by move the slender side down the shaft until its open enough to apply grease with a gun. PUT LOTS OF GREASE. When you close the case most of the grease is going to be squeezed right out again. To prevent this i installed a Zerk fitting. WARNING Do not install a Zerk yourself. What i'm trying to do is to pressurize the case with grease in order to get the grease to where its needed. Do not use the scooter inside until you find its not dripping grease. Hope this helps

Replacing a rear wheel bearing 1996 gmc sonoma 5 speed what all is involved does the axle have to come out or can you just take wheel and brakes drum off etc.

To remove the rear axle to replace a bearing you have to remove the rear differential cover and remove the small retaining bolt holds the spider gear shaft in place and then slide this shaft out far enough to remove the "C" shaped axle shaft retaining clip. Once this clip is off then the axle can be slid out and the bearing & seal replaced. Make sure that none of the spider gears or thrust washers behind them get out of place and you should use a new retaining bolt when reassembling the differential components as they come [or should come this way] with thread locker to prevent them from coming loose.

How do you change rear bearing on 2000 safari?

The rear axle bearing? I'm going to presume that's the bearing you're talking about and not the rear main bearing, so please take that into consideration if you would

You're going to have to jack up the rear of the van, remove the tire and drum. Then you have to place a drain pan under the rear differential and remove the cover. After the cover is removed spin the rear axle (the one with the tire off) to locate the pin in the very center of the differential. On the right side you will see an 8mm (5/16) bolt head.

When you remove the locking bolt (the 8mm) and slide the pin out DO NOT SPIN THE AXLE WITHOUT THE CENTER PIN IN PLACE. Push in on the axle with the bearing to be replaced and a "C" clip will fall out of the differential. SLIDE THE CENTER PIN BACK IN and screw in the locking bolt a few turns. Once the "C" clip slips out, you can pull the axle out. If you don't have a bearing puller, it's best to rent one. Insert the bearing puller and pop the bearing out.

Rear bearing

rear axle bearings I assume? Pull the diff cover, rotate the carrier so you can remove the pin from the center of the 4 spyder gears, push the axle in slightly, and remove large c clip from the carrier area. The axle will pull right out! These vehicles are hard on axle bearings. Look them all over.

Good Luck!

2 issues.\1st is the truck has dual fuel tanks and

The only way the empty tank could leak is that the switch that controls the two tanks is pumping fuel into your empty tank. This is a common problem with the Ford trucks. In fact Ford had a recall on these to replace the switch for this very problem.
Problem 2: The F-250 you have probably has a full floating axle in it. Remove the wheel. Remove the brake drum. Remove the 8 bolts on the end of the axle stub. Remove the axle. Then you will need to remove the large axle lock nut and the lock ring under it. Then remove one more axle nut. Carefully remove the hub and dont let the outer bearing drop to the floor as it might damage it. Flip the hub over and remove the old wheel seal. Check the bearings. If o.k. put them back in the hub. Install the new wheel seal. Then reverse the disassembly procedure to place it all back together. When finished refill the differential. And be sure to clean the oil from the brake drum and replace the brake shoes if they are contaminated so badly that you can't get them clean again. No special tools needed. Just a good all around assortment to accomplish this task. If you need to purchase tools it would be a good investment anyway. Tools never go out of style. They have uses over and over and pretty much pay for themself.
