Rear Differential Housing Assembly Removal and Installation

1.Remove the six mounting bolts in a crisscross pattern in several steps, then remove the differential housing assembly (A) and the oil seals (B).

 

2.Remove the dirt and oil from the sealing surfaces. Apply liquid gasket (P/N 08C70-K0234M) to the sealing surface. Make sure you seal the entire circumference of the bolt holes to prevent oil leakage.

NOTE:
  • You must assemble the housings within 5 minutes after applying the liquid gasket. If not, the sealing surface must be cleaned, and the liquid gasket reapplied.
  • Allow it to cure at least 20 minutes after assembly before filling the differential with fluid.

 

3.Install the differential housing assembly (A), then torque the six mounting bolts (B) in a crisscross pattern in several steps.

 

4.Install the oil seals.
