Are there bolts on the rear axle cover ?

or 5 bolts that hold the seal/bearing in on the backing plate...

No bolts on rear axle cover, just the front pumpkin. Will taking the bolts off the backing plate allow the axle to come out?


just behind th axle mounting pad there should be a plate holding the retainer to the backing plate... same bolts


You can try it might work but if it was that kind of axle removal the axle would have a hole in it so that you could put a socket, extension and racket to remove bolts.


Being that year they may have not started to but that hole in axle for easy removal.
