Hi All!

I currently have the back end of my van in pieces and I thought While im here it would be nice to flush my rear wheel bearings out and replace the seals.

The bearings them self feel good so I don't wanna replace em or damage them. But my Question is.....

How do get the rear axle out? Is it just a matter of drifting it our with a hammer or is there a hidden circlip I need to undo?

I've tried to lightly drift them out, but nothing seems to be happening so i thought I would check with you guys first!

Thanks for any help/advice in advance!

Cheers

Alex

Swing axle or IRS?

If its IRS, I imagine it is, I've always undone the cv joint bolts, oh and the hub nut and then the stub axle should pull through. possibly with some use of the "Persuader"

If that's no good you can always drill a small hole into the old seal and pull it out with what ever you can get in there.

I gave mine a good thump with a copper hamer fter undoing the nut and it poped out on the second hit. I removed the drive shafts first.

It seems t ohave gone back together without a problem

Hi Mate - there is no circlip you just need to beat em out.....sledge hammer works Grin Make sure you put the nut on when you hammer it though as you will f up the thread. Nuts are only a few quid from GSF so much easier to replace them!

I've constantly fixed the cv joint fasteners, goodness and the center point nut and after that the stub pivot should pull through.
