Hello everyone, I just did a reseal on my angle gear. Everything went smooth except one thing. I noticed that thw bearing in the anglegear the one that connects to the driveshaft was harded to turn than other bearings plus it made a noise that it shouldnt make. It was saturday and with following sunday and labor day dealer was going to be closed. So I decieed to put the angle gear together and see if the bearing will be a problem. To my dissappointment it did make a noise on light acceleration and most noticeable when in third gear at about 30mph. Now I need to find a bearing and do the job all over again.

My questions are: Does anyone have a diagram of how the bearings in the angle gear go together? Did anyone replace the driveshaft bearing themselves? If so how did you do it?(It looked like it needs to be pressed out or hammered out). Also if anyone knows the part number for that bearing and the best place to get it, please let me know.

Thanks everybody.

!!!UPDATE!!! February 2013

After changing the bearings on the pinion gear and going through alot of searching on the web and forums I finally put together the angle gear. Everything works perfectly. What I found out though might help you guys if you are doing a reseal. The noise that I described after doing the reseal, was probably not from the bearing. I bet it was from tightening the race cap too tight.

If you plan to do a reseal do not do a mistake I did. When you take off the race cap to change the O-ring, make a mark where it was tightened and also make sure to count how many spins you make to take the race cap off. If I did that in the first place I wouldn't have to change bearings. Good luck everyone. I am going to make another thread of detailed write up of what I have done.

The bearing should have a number on it, most major bearings manufacturers will have this off the shelf, like from SKF Bearings etc.

Thanks for reply. I need to know the part number for number 14 in that diagram, but cant find it.

I was hoping someone could supply the part so I can order them and have a mechanic press bearing out and new one in at once. If anyone can help, I would appreciate it.
