Fig. Using a grinder, grind the retainer, on one side, down to 1-2mm (0.04-0.08 in.) thickness



Snapring from the inside end of the axle shaft. Remove 1 retainer bolt from the backing plate with a plastic mallet. Apply cloth tape around the edge of the bearing case for protection. Position the axle shaft in a vise or with a similar method. Using a grinder, grind down the retainer flat, on one side, until the thickness of the retainer is only 0.04-0.08 in. (1-2mm). That is that the retainer is ground down toward the axle shaft, not toward the flange. Cut, with a chisel, the place where the retainer ring has been shaven down and remove the retainer.
 


CAUTION
Be careful not to damage the bearing case and the axle shaft.


NOTE
Only the retainer ring is to be ground down, NOT the axle shaft, the axle flange, the bearing or any other component.

  1. Grind the plate of special tool MB990861 with a grinder (see illustration) so that there will be no interference between the plate and the bearing case. While adjusting the height of the hanger, secure the washers, plate and nuts in order so that the processed plate is as shown in the illustration.
  2.  


NOTE
The washers are used to eliminate the difference in height of the bearing case so that the plate and the bearing case are parallel.

Place the end of the bolt against the center of the axle shaft, then tighten the nuts to remove the axle shaft from the bearing case assembly.


NOTE
The hanger and plate must be placed so that they are parallel.

  1. Remove the bearing inner race and the bearing outer race. To remove the races, install the tool MB990560 and use a press to remove the bearing race from the axle shaft.
  2.  
  3. Remove the oil seal and the dust cover on vehicles without ABS.
  4.  
  5. On vehicles without ABS, insert an iron plate of approximately 0.04 in. (1mm) thickness between the rotor assembly and the axle shaft, then use a press to remove the rotor assembly.
  6.  


WARNING
In order not to bend the rotor assembly plate, place the support in contact with the axle shaft when using the press.

Fig. Use an iron plate and supports to remove the rotor assembly

  1. Remove or disconnect the following:

    Axle shaft from the remaining bearings and components
     
    Backing plate
     

  2.  
  3. Reinstall the bearing inner race that was removed previously, then use the tool MB990799-01 and press to remove the bearing outer race.
  4.  
  5. Remove or disconnect the following:

    Bearing case
     
    O-ring from the end of the axle housing tube
     
    Oil seal from the end of the rear axle housing using the tool MB990211-01 (slide hammer with a hooked end), if necessary
     

  6.  
  7. Check the dust cover for deformation or damage. Check the oil seal for damage. Check the inner and outer bearings for seizure, discoloration and rough raceway surface. Check the axle shaft for cracks, wear and damage. For there are any of these indications, replace the part with a new one. The retainer, the bearing inner (inner and outer) and outer races and the oil seal need to be replaced with new components upon reassembly. After all of this work, it is probably a good idea to replace the bearings and the axle housing tube oil seals.
  8.  

To install:

  1. Install or connect the following:

    New oil seal into the end of the rear axle housing using the tools MB990932-01 and MB990938-01, if necessary.
     
    New O-ring into the axle tube
     

  2.  
  3. Apply multi-purpose grease to the external surface of the bearing out race. Press-fit the bearing outer race into the bearing case by using the tool MB990890-01.
  4.  
  5. Install or connect the following:

    Speed sensor bracket to the back of the backing plate
     
    Rotor assembly to the axle shaft by press-fitting (plastic mallet will also work) it on using the special tool MB991388
     
    Backing plate onto the axle shaft
     
    Dust cover to the backing plate if the vehicle is equipped with ABS.
     
    Bearing inner race (outer) to the bearing case
     
    Oil seal to the front end of the bearing case. To do this, apply multi-purpose grease to the outside of the oil seal. Use the special tools MB990936-01 and MB990938-01 to press-fit the oil seal until it is flush with the end of the bearing case. Apply multi-purpose grease to the lip of the oil seal.
     
    Axle shaft through the bearing inner race, the bearing case and the second bearing inner race in that order. Use the special tool MB990799 to press-fit the bearing inner race to the axle shaft.
     

  6.  


WARNING
Both bearing inner race sets should be press-fitted together. The left and right lengths of the axle shaft are different in vehicles with rear differential locks. The right side is longer; be careful when installing it.

Fig. Measure the clearance (A) between the snapring and the retainer edge

  1. Use the tool MB990799-01 to press-fit the retainer onto the axle shaft, while checking that the press-fitting force is at the following values:

    Initial press-fitting force: 11,016 lbs. (5000 kg) or more.
     
    Final press-fitting force: 22,031-24,280 lbs. (98,000-108,000 N).

  3. If the initial press-fitting force is less than the standard value, replace the axle shaft.
  4.  
  5. After installing the snapring, measure the clearance between the snapring and the retainer with a thickness gauge, and check that it is within the standard values. The standard value is 0.0065 in. (0.166mm) or less. If the clearance exceeds the standard value, change the snapring so that the clearance is at the standard value. Use the following adjusting snapring thicknesses:

    0.0854 in. (2.17mm): no color.
     
    0.0791 in. (2.01mm): yellow.

    0.0665 in. (1.69mm): purple.
     
    0.0602 in. (1.53mm): red.
     

  6.  
  7. Install or connect the following:

    Axle assembly into the axle housing. Be sure that the grooves on the end of the axle shaft line up in the differential. Use a plastic or rubber mallet to help drive the axle shaft into the differential unit. Tighten the 4 retaining bolts for the axle shafts to 36-43 ft. lbs. (49-59 Nm).
     
    Speed sensor
     
    Parking brake assembly components to the axle flange.

  10.  
  11. Lower the vehicle until the wheels are touching the ground, then finish tightening the lug nuts. Lower the vehicle the rest of the way to the ground.
  12.  
  13. Road test the vehicle and check for leaks.
  14.  

  1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the precautions in the beginning of this section.
  2.  
  3. Loosen the wheel lug nuts only 1 / 2 a turn.

The standard value is 0.0065 in. (0.166mm) or less. If the clearance exceeds the standard value, change the snapring so that the clearance is at the standard value. Use the following adjusting snapring thicknesses:

    0.0854 in. (2.17mm): no color.
     
    0.0791 in. (2.01mm): yellow.
     
    0.0728 in. (1.85mm): blue.
     
    0.0665 in. (1.69mm): purple.
     
    0.0602 in. (1.53mm): red.

  13. Install or connect the following:

    Axle assembly into the axle housing. Be sure that the grooves on the end of the axle shaft line up in the differential. Use a plastic or rubber mallet to help drive the axle shaft into the differential unit. Tighten the 4 retaining bolts for the axle shafts to 36-43 ft. lbs. (49-59 Nm).
     
    Speed sensor
     
    Parking brake assembly components to the axle flange.
     
    Parking brake cable to the parking brake assembly, then secure it in place with the cable bracket.
     
    Brake rotor onto the axle shaft, and the brake caliper. Torque the caliper bolts to 65 ft. lbs. (88 Nm).
     
    Brake hose to the frame brake line. Torque the flare nut to 11 ft. lbs. (15 Nm).
     
    Wheels. Torque the lug nuts as tight as possible with the vehicle not on the ground.
     

  14.  
  15. Bleed the brake system.
  16.  
  17. Lower the vehicle until the wheels are touching the ground, then finish tightening the lug nuts. Lower the vehicle the rest of the way to the ground.
  18.  
  19. Road test the vehicle and check for leaks.
