Rear Stub Axle. Removal?

Recommended Posts

does the rear stub axle on a 110 detach from the axle itself. It looks like its part of the whole rear axle. :blink:

Yes it does come off - undo the 7 x bolts that hold it to the axle tube and if necessary - give it a clout with a mallet or similar.

Sometimes something a little more substantial than a clout is required :)

there's only 6 on a 90/110 rear stub axle, IIRC 7 on a Series LR.

*Big hammers theory of Engineering:

  1. Hit it
  2. If it doesn't shift, get a bigger hammer and repeat from 1.
  3. If it breaks, well you needed a new one anyway

Thanks all for the encouragement. If i might ask, why would i want to remove it anyhow?

I'm meant to be replacing the brake disk and pads a wheel bearings and seal. What would i need to remove the stub for? Theres nothing amis this is just maintenance. So before I put it all back together can you give me a good reason to get out the BIG hammer... :lol:

Unless you have a leak behind it or the stub needs replacing, then there's no need to remove it.
