Insert the flat end of the puller through the bearing's center and position it flat against the bearing's backside. Next, slide a washer down the shaft's center, placing it against the bearing's front side, and tighten the nut on the smaller end of the puller.
Attach a slide hammer (not included) to the puller and move it back and forth until the bearing is removed.
The washer securely holds the bearing, distributing the force applied throughout the bearing and avoiding damage.
Rear axle bearing puller set features sizes that cater to the main bearing tube, ranging from 1 inch to 1-7/8 inches, 1-5/16 inches to 2-3/8 inches, and 1-3/8 inches to 2-7/8 inches.
The sizes are clearly marked on the tool with laser-etching for easy identification.
Each tool can be used with a basic slide hammer that has a 5/8-inch x 18 thread pitch.
