  • Remove the differential cover and drain the oil.
  • Remove the bolts holding the ring gear to the differential carrier.
  • Carefully pull the axle shaft out of the axle housing.

Step 2: Remove the Old Bearing

  • Use a slide hammer to install the new bearing onto the differential carrier.
  • Install the new oil seal onto the carrier using a seal driver set.

Step 4: Reassemble the Differential

  • Reinstall the ring gear onto the differential carrier, tightening the bolts to the manufacturer's specifications using a torque wrench.
  • Apply gear marking compound to the ring gear teeth and check the gear tooth pattern with a dial indicator to ensure correct installation.
