This breakdown explains how to dissemble and refit a new rear wheel bearing for Toyota 4x4 rear axles.
It is very common for the correct procedure to be ignored which can often resolve in a damaged half shaft. Incorrect fitment and positioning of the retainer collars and inner seals can also cause the half shaft to leak by not setting the correct depth or fitting the seal squarely into the axle casing.
Please follow our fitment guide for correct procedure which WILL stop your rear axle leaking if followed correctly.
Please Nb - ABS rings, if fitted to your model, need to be removed prior to using the puller as there is a snap ring behind
The axle shaft puller safely removes the axle shaft on a variety of Toyota models without damaging the shaft, just remember there is a half shaft retainer snap ring that needs to be removed before using the puller.
Cutting a bearing, retainer or ABS ring can damage the axle beyond repair resulting in oil leaking from the shaft.
