A/T Differential Carrier Bearing Replacement

Special Tools Required
Attachment, 40 x 50 mm (  07LAD-PW50601)

  • The bearing and bearing outer race should be replaced as a set.
  • Inspect and adjust the carrier bearing preload whenever bearing is replaced.
  • Check the bearing for wear and rough rotation. If the bearing is OK, removal is not necessary.
  • The illustration shows the 4WD model; 2WD is similar.

1.Remove the carrier bearing (A) with a commercially available puller (B), bearing separator (C), and stepper adapter (D).


2.Install the new bearings with the special tool and a press. Press the bearing on securely so there is no clearance between the bearing and the differential carrier.
