    D y i wheel rear bearings & seals

    Now that you have made sure everything is clean slide the axle back in BUT DO NOT REST THE AXLE ON THE SEAL THAT YOU JUST INSTALLED INTO THE HOUSING as you slide the axle into position rotate it as you push & try to lift the slpined end up as you push it in so it will slide into the planetary then tighten all the nuts up & refit the disc & caliper
    When doing this repair just take your time & think ahead theres no rush & remember its easier to fix a stupid question than it is to fix a stupid mistake
    Any questions just ask
    My next job hopefully will be to rebuild a 5speed & transfer box & replace a 5th gear shaft

    Jgoose, this is a job I hope I don't have to do, but nevertheless I thank you very much for posting as you have. I now have a much better idea of 'what's in there' & if I were ever in a situation where I had to undertake this task could do so with greater confidence. Good one mate.

    Great post Bloke, I'll be running my axles down to my local mechanic to get the pressing done I recon, how long did it take to do the job and get back to that box of cans? Excellent photos as well.

    Great post JGoose, and some great tips for all of us which we can apply to a multitude of jobs, and with some more agricultural tools too.

    Hi all thanks for the kind words i relise its not a job for everyone i just like to show ppl how things can be done without paying top dollar at least a lot of the job isnt too hard to tackle at home then take the axles to the mechanic for the pressing side of it
    this took me around 4-5hrs plus i greased the car & changed all the oils as well. I Smashed the rum had to grab another couple of cubes ill be fitting wheel sensors soon if anyones interested.
    . If any one needs any help all you need to do is ask
