NOTE: If the transmission housing, torque converter housing, differential carrier, tapered roller bearing, bearing outer race, or thrust shim were replaced, the bearing preload must be adjusted.
Remove the bearing outer race (A), 76.2 mm spacer (B), and 76 mm thrust shim (C) from the transmission housing (D) by heating the housing to about 100 °C (212 °F) with a heat gun (E). Do not heat the housing more than 100 °C (212 °F).
NOTE: Let the transmission housing cool to room temperature before adjusting the bearing preload.
Replace the tapered roller bearing when the outer race is to be replaced.
Do not use a shim on the torque converter housing side.
