REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
- Remove the axle shaft.
- Using a two-fingered seal puller (slide hammer), remove the seal from the axle housing.
- Thoroughly clean the recess in the rear axle housing from which the seal was removed.
- Position a new seal on the housing and drive it into place with a seal installation tool. If this tool is not available, a wood block of the appropriate size may be substituted.
Although the right and left-hand seals are identical, there are many different types of seals which have been used. It is advisable to have one of the old seals when you purchase new ones, in order to visually identify the proper seal.
- When the seal is properly installed, install the axle shaft.
