Rear wheel bearings

Mine are going bad and the humming noise is driving me fucking crazy so I need to change them out. I'm not positive how to do it on our cars. Just take the diff cover off, push the axles in, remove c clips and pull out axles to change the bearings?

Something like that, make sure you have new bearings and axle seals with you and it really helps to have a slide hammer with an axle bearing puller.

Edit
The bearings are behind the seals, I had no luck trying to pull the seal and it ended up easiest to just pull the bearing and seal at the same time.

So the bearings and seals need replaced? Gotcha. Yes my neighbor has a slide hammer I'll be able to use. How do you pull both at the same time?

How much would I expect to pay to get this done? Mine are going bad too.

My guess is a shop would charge you two hours labor plus parts.

This is the basics:

1) remove the rear differential cover.
2) remove the c-clips holding the axles in.
3) remove the bearings and seals
4) replace the new bearings and seals.
5) install axles and c-clips
6) reinstall diff cover and refill.


The most complete DIY will come from looking at gear install DIY's. Only thing you will have to remove are the c-clips and axles.

That doesn't look too bad actually. How much gear oil goes back in, and what is the most recommended type? I'll look up getting the C-Clips out too. Might be a good project for a sunny weekend.

I can't remember exactly, but I believe it's 2 quarts.. you just fill it till it starts overflowing the fill hole; I used Royal Purple. The C-Clips are EASY.. once you have the wheels, brakes and differential open, you simply push the axle in towards differential. Then when you look inside the differential, you'll see the axle and the C-Clip. Once you remove the c-clip, you then pull the axle straight out.
