Hi Guys,

Has anyone ever took the half shaft out of tx2? to change the seals just wondering how difficult it is. I have a leak from the axle right down the back of the backing plate of the brakes.

Wondering if its a difficult job can it be done yourself or is it a garage job.

Thanks Mr t.

Is there no seal or anything? Or is the bearing part if the seal.

Thin o ring on out side of bearing ... but it is the bearing that is leaking...
you can do it yourself ..you need the W/bearing... locking ring...big hammer....small grinder.. length of scaffolding tube.....3 to 4 hours.....ps gloves and goggles..

if you jack up the cab on the side you are working on , you will not lose any.... just ordinary diff oil smells like cats pi**....you have to disconnect the rear brake cylinder from the brake pipe.
Easy way buy a secondhand half-shaft ... they are sided

Ok thanks mate.


What easier to get a second hand already instead of trying to get a new bearing on my one? There's a engine place over this side of the water wirral that will press on bearings so it makes that part of the job easier.

tip..paint your brake adjuster white.....easier to see when adjusting

Thanks will do. I will be replaying the shoes and drums at the same time as i think my drums are warped or out of round as they grab/puslate when when braking quite badly
