Note: Check with manufacturer on recommended grease for bearings on your particular vehicle.
Note: For the replacement center support bearing, be sure to acquire the precise part recommended by the vehicle manufacturer (only replace with the entire housing that includes the outer housing, inner bearing and inner plastic supports).
Warning: Do not attempt to replace inner bearing only.
Tip: There are a lot of people that believe it's possible to remove the center support bearing and reattach it by using a press or other methods. In most cases, this method fails as the bearing is not properly attached or secured. In order to avoid this problem, locate a local machine shop that can remove and install the center support bearing correctly.
Step 1: Remove the front driveshaft. The front driveshaft is attached to the transmission output shaft and connected by four bolts.
Step 2: Remove the bolts. Get the correct size end wrench or socket wrench to do this.
Step 3: Remove the front part of the driveshaft. The front driveshaft is going to be attached solid inside the output shaft supports.
Step 4: Remove the bolts attaching the front driveshaft to the center support bearing. Once the bolts are removed, the front driveshaft will be detached from the center support bearing.
Step 5: Place the front driveshaft in a secure area. This will keep it from being damaged or misplaced.
Step 6: Remove the rear driveshaft. The rear driveshaft is attached to the rear end yoke.
Step 7: Remove the rear driveshaft. Remove the bolts that attach the two components together first; then carefully remove the driveshaft from the yoke using the same method as the front driveshaft.
Step 8: Remove the center clip that attaches the rear driveshaft to the center support bracket. This clip is removed with a straight-edge screwdriver.
Step 9: Remove the boot. After you've removed the clamp, slide the boot from the center support bearing.
Step 10: Remove the center support bearing housing. Once you've removed the rear driveshaft, you'll be ready to remove the center housing.
There are two bolts on top of the housing that you'll need to remove. Once both bolts are removed, you'll be able to slide the front driveshaft and rear input shaft easily from the center bearings.
Step 11: Remove the old bearing. The best way to accomplish this step is to have a professional machine shop remove and professionally install the new bearing.
They have access to better tools that allow them to complete this job easily than most DIY mechanics. Listed below are the steps to follow if you don't have access to a machine shop or choose to undertake this step on your own.
Step 12: Remove the bolts. Remove the ones that connect the front portion of the driveshaft to the rear driveshaft.
Step 13: Secure the forward part of the driveshaft. Secure it into a bench vise.
Step 14: Unscrew the center nut. This is the nut that will hold the connecting plate on the shaft where the center bearing is placed.
Step 15: Tap the worn out center support bearing off the driveshaft. Use a hammer and brass center punch.
Step 16: Clean the ends of the driveshaft. Once the center support bearing has been removed, clean all ends of each driveshaft with solvent and prepare to install the new bearing.
Step 17: Install new bearing. This is the most critical part of this job. Again, if you're not 100 percent confident, have a professional machine shop install the new bearing. It can save you a tremendous amount of stress and money.
Step 18: Apply grease. Add a thin layer of recommended grease onto the bearing shaft to ensure proper lubrication and to allow the bearing to slide on much easier.
Step 19: Push the bearing onto the shaft as straight as possible. Utilize a rubber or plastic tipped hammer to guide the bearing onto the driveshaft.
Step 20: Check bearing installation. Verify that the bearing spins easily on the driveshaft without any wobbles or movement.
Step 21: Reinstall center support bearing and driveshaft. This is the easiest part of the job, as all you need to do is reinstall each section in reverse order that you followed with the installation.
