Re: 2000 F-250 Changing Rear Axle Seal
It's pretty easy. Just drain the rear end, remove the calipers or drums. Remove the bolts holding the shaft in and pull the shaft out. You'll need a specialty took to remove the shaft nut. Remove the front bearing and then the hub. Remove the axle seal by prying it out. Don't damage the hub. Take the new seal and hammer it in place. Be careful and make sure to use the correct seal driver to hammer it in place. I have hammered it in place without a seal driver but they can be tricky to hammer in straight. Then take emory cloth and clean up the mating surface on the axle and use brake clean to wash away any debris. Then reverse. When torquing the axle nut, be sure to turn the hub while torqing. Not sure of the ft/lbs off the top of my head but google it and you'll find it.
Also, your local library has Chilton manuals you can check out or print off instructions from their on-line databases.
