Asked by Jul 18, 2010 at 04:20 PM about the Ford Explorer

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I am going to have to rebuild it as it has recently started to slip. I have searched everywhere online for a breakdown of rear axle
assembly w/independent suspension. Does anyone have any recommendations or sites of interest for me?

Auto-Zone carries a computer program that is quite comprehensive as well as a Haynes manual which is a book with a lot of information on various vehicle systems both are excellent sources and no more than $25. Finding specific information on this is going to be hard using the internet.

It will tear down like any other rearend,just remove rear houseing,pull the lock clips axels will slide out ,remove gear assem.
