Special Tools Required

Bearing Separator

Attachment, 40
  • The bearing and outer race should be replaced as a set.
  • Inspect and adjust the carrier bearing preload whenever the bearing is replaced.
  • Check the bearing for wear and rough rotation. If the bearing is OK, removal is not necessary.
  1. Remove the final driven gear from the differential carrier when replacing the carrier bearing on the final driven gear side. When only replacing the carrier bearing on opposite side of the final driven gear, final driven gear removal is no needed.
  1. Set a commercially available bearing separator (A) or the special tool (07KAF-PS30200) under the carrier bearing (B).
  1. Place a collar (C) on the differential carrier, and set a commercially available bearing puller (D), then remove the carrier bearing.

  1. Install the new bearing with the special tool and a press. Press the bearing on securely until it bottoms so there is no clearance between the bearing and the differential carrier.
  1. Install the final driven gear if the gear was removed.
