QUESTION: Front differential driveshaft oil seal removal
« on: August 09, 2016, 11:14:41 AM »
Can anybody please tell me how to remove front differrntial driveshaft because i need to replace oil seal. It's the driveshaft going to front diff not the shaft going to transmission. Does it just slide out or do i have to tap it out. Thanks.

service manual and parts manuals (with exploded views!)
 links are at the bottom of the forum home page.
the exploded view will show if there is any sort of e-clip or
whatever that will keep the axle from sliding out easily
 and the service manual will give hints or procedures....

Thank you for your reply but service manual was no help at all. Not enough detailed info...

as said the parts manuals have the exploded view that shows all parts
 in relation to each other . i always look at the exploded view
the first time i disassemble any motor or tranny.

I already looked at the parts exploded view and i can see exactly how everything ties in together. I'm just trying to figure out if i can replace seal without taking front diff out and taking it all apart just to change seal.

yes , just try to pick it out , if you can't get it out  then you will have to
remove more parts. be careful not to scratch the DS when removing the seal
 with the DS in place.
really doesn't matter if you tear the seal apart removing  it.
the inner bearing should hold the DS in place so you can center the seal properly
 do remember to oil/light grease  the seal before replacing  it.
finally if you do have to remove the DS a slide hammer might be the ticket.
