Titan Rear axle shaft removal

Postby Bill Ingram » Sun Feb 08, 2015 10:14 am

Hi All:
The right rear axle shaft is leaking on my 2011 Titan. I had followed the instructions on the FSM to remove the axle shaft, which includes the following steps: removal of the ABS sensor, removal of the brake caliper, removal of the parking brake shoes, removal of the four axle shaft bearing cage nuts. After completing those steps, I could not remove the axle shaft using a three pound slide hammer. Does anybody have a better way of removing the shaft?

Thanks,

Bill

your doing it right should take a good amount of force to get it out of there

this might help

JB'sRogue,

It looks like I'll have to work harder at it.

Thanks.
