Pinion seal, yoke holder
« on: March 25, 2019, 03:23:34 PM »
I am trying to replace my front pinion seal, but can't get the nut off. Does anyone have a yoke holder I could borrow so I can hopefully remove the nut?

Put the front wheels on the ground, ebrake on and in 4 low.

Are you sure you need to replace the seal?, last Summer my rear pinion started leaking badly and it turned out to be a plugged axle vent line, cleared the gunk off the end and it hasn’t leaked since

I'll check the vent line, and I had the wheels on the ground and someone standing on the brakes, no go.

You could always stick a couple of big screwdrivers or prybars through the axle u-joints

Pipe wrench on yolk it will Jam itself on the upper control arm or exhaust etc.

Used that technique many times.

Do you have to worry about breaking something if you apply too much force while doing this?

Common sense applies
