just bearing it

hi i need to replace a rear axle seal in the rodeo(1990).are these a slip on seal inside the bearing(eg early holden)or does the bearing need to be removed 1st-needing a new bearing as well(outside seal).also some one suggested these may have a circlip holding the axle from the diff centre(mines 2wd)that needs to be removed before axle extraction.cheers

Comments

These axle aren't held in with a circlip although there may be a circlip to assist the bearing retainer. Your best bet is if you wish to save a little money then remove the axle yourself by undoing the 4 retaining bolts and handbrake cable, the axle should then be free to pull/pry out of the housing. I would though have someone experienced to refit your new bearing and seal/s ($50-$100.00) which will also save you money in the long run.

Now...its been a while but my foggy memory says its a dirty great nut that retains the bearing..not a clip or Shrink ring.
I do know its done up F'n tight. You are going to need the biggest Stilson...and a piece of pipe :)
You will need to mark the nuts position an da drop of Loctite would not go astray fro re-assembly.
Cheers,

Nup....hang on...got that wrong I think..
I had a quick look at a pic on the net..though the axle is a little later it looks like a shrink-ring not a nut like I said.
BUT..I seem to recall you need a special tool to remove the backing plate from the bearing..it supports the axel in a press.
Will try and put up a link to the type of tool...I made one a few years back at the dealership.

Was it you who was going to put the 202 in a Rodeo a while back? I'd love to see the results if it did work out.
