When you see rear differential fluid on your rear brakes & assembly.
If you have up and down movement with the rear axle at the bearing, chances are the axle is also worn.
That is your rear axle. It delivers the power to your tires.
New seals work best.
take the pin out of the rear diffrential and the axle should come out
Those vans dont have rear seals, unless your refurring to the axle seals in the transmissions... those just pop out with alittle work and ascrew driver and the new one pops in with some help from a rubber mallet... they dont have rear seals, they got barings in the rear.
It would be recommended to replace the rear axle bearings and axles when they are worn/bad. If the bearings and axles are okay, just replace the seals.
You have to remove the brakes, rotors, wheel hubs, axle shafts, diff cover, and differential carrier, seals are on the inside of the axle tubes.
It is located on the rear axle. Remove the spare tire to see it easier.
To change the rear axle fluid you can remove the rear cover from the axle and drain it that way. If you don't want to remove the rear cover you can use a pump and a hose to drain it through the fill hole.
If it is bad enough you can hear it rumble as you drive the vehicle otherwise you can jack up the rear of the vehicle and support it safely, strip the calipers, brake pads and rotors off, grab the axle hub and try to move it up and down. There should be little or no up and down movement, in and out play is okay. Notice also if you have leaky axle seals, that would be another clue. If you have excess play in the axle, you probably have a worn out axle also. The axle bearing rides on the axle so when an axle bearing goes, so does the axle.
It should be mounted to the frame over the drivers side rear axle.
To replace the rear axle seals, lift and support the rear of vehicle, remove the tires, remove the drums, remove the nuts holding the bearing/seal retainer in place, install the drums backwards (that's right, backwards) and secure drums to axle flange with two or three lug nuts, using a large hammer, tap on the drum as to force axle/bearing assembly out from the axle tube, take the axle assemblies to a machine shop to have the old bearings and seals replaced then reinstall the assemblies back into the vehicle. Unfortunately the original bearings have to be destroyed in order to replace the seals.
the problem is the axle bearing has gone bad and ruined the axle seal. the gear lube is held in the differential by the axle seals on each end.
Vehicles with front wheel drive have a straight rear axle meaning there is no gear housing in the rear axle. Vehicles that are rear wheel drive have a gear box in the middle of the rear axle to change the rotation of a drive shaft to turn the rear axle. If you look under a full size pick up truck rear axle you will see a large gear box (typically referred to as a pumpkin) in the middle area of the axle. That is the gear box differential.
